Bridge Cottage is a delightful, detached, period property set in the heart of a valley in the peaceful South Hams countryside. Very private and recently refurbished, the house is stylish and elegant and retains much of its original character and charm with plenty of exposed beams. The large gardens and terrace are ideal for al fresco dining and a brook running down the side of the garden further enhances the overall ambience of a peaceful rural idyll. Set in the hamlet of Washbourne, this delightful spot is equidistant between Dartmouth and the medieval market town of Totnes and close to the west bank of the river Dart where there is an excellent choice of restaurant pubs and plenty of opportunity for messing around in boats.
Short breaks are available from November until April. Please call Toad Hall Cottages to book.
