Lakeside, seaside, countryside, hillside...wherever you can picture your perfect cottage, you'll find it with Welcome Cottages!


If you are looking for a peaceful retreat, you can’t get much better than Buzzards! In an AONB, the setting is stunning.

Peaceful setting. Idyllic and tranquil surroundings.
If you are looking for a tranquil, relaxing holiday away from the hustle and bustle then this is the place for you. Coombe House Cottages (refs W1400 and W1497) are situated in a designated AONB in the heart of rural Devon, situated in a sheltered south facing valley off the beaten track and surrounded by rolling meadows and woodland. The abundance of wildlife is fabulous, and the lawns and lake to the front are very pretty in the summer with brightly flowering azaleas and rhododendrons. Each property has its own trestle table for al fresco dining in the sunshine. The cosy cottages have been converted from original stone farm barns and retain much original character. The delight of holidaying here is the quietness of the place. This little complex of properties is set in 33 acres of beautiful countryside and stands at the head of a broad valley. Across from Coombe House (ref W42221) is a delightful natural pond, thriving with wildlife including butterflies and dragonflies. The cottages are positioned to the rear of Coombe House and each offers very well appointed accommodation. The owner places fresh flowers in each property and guests can buy fresh herbs and vegetables from the owner (seasonal), as well as flowers, as and when available. The complex lies within 4 miles of Dartmoor National Park and within easy reach of some of the cleanest beaches in England (Bigbury and Blackpool Sands). The coastal paths offer superb walks and magnificent scenery. There are also many Green Lane walks, one of which runs through part of the estate. Several National Trust properties and gardens are nearby. Totnes and Dartmouth with their award-winning restaurants are a short distance away. The beautiful gardens feature a lake, a stream and small pond where wildlife abounds. As you stroll around the gardens you will probably encounter moorhens, pheasants or ducks, and if you take an evening walk in the woods you may catch a glimpse of a badger, fox or deer. Bird life is varied, look out for buzzards, sparrowhawks, woodpeckers and owls. Shop, pub and restaurant 2 miles.

Ground floor: 2 bedrooms: 1 double, 1 twin. Bathroom with shower over bath and toilet. First floor: Living room with sofa bed and beams. Dining room/kitchen.

Laundry facilities in separate utility room.

Both properties: Oil central heating and electricity included (£35per week 1st October-30th April). Bed linen and towels included. Cot. High chair. DVD. CD. Electric cooker. Microwave. Dishwasher.

    We stayed at Buzzard cottage in October 2016. It is a difficult drive to reach there, especially if the weather is wet. The cottage is remote - about 4 miles from the nearest shop and there is no mobile signal. It would have been really helpful to have had Internet access. The cottage is in a beautiful, peaceful setting but if the weather is bad, there is only the TV. A few books, games, puzzles or DVDs would have been useful. On arrival there was a frozen pint of milk in the fridge, tea bags and a packet of biscuits. We were surprised to find that there was no salt & pepper, soap in the bathroom, that kind of thing. The hot water very quickly ran out even after one shower. We did have an enjoyable, restful holiday and the cottage is ideally placed for exploring Dartmoor and South Hams. Probably not great in bad weather with young children.

    It was a lovely cottage nicely kept and the people great, It has been sold to a developer so wouldn't be able to stay there again. The only downside were the local roads which were extremely small with very few passing places. We are used to lanes but these were beyond belief in places

    We had a lovely holiday at Buzzards View. The cottage is set in beautiful well kept grounds, great for quiet walks or just to sit with a glass of wine and a book. The cottage was a good base to travel out and about each day. The cottage was well equipped and extremely clean, with access to a really useful utility room with washing machine and dryer. Really welcoming when we arrived to have tea, milk and cookies available in the kitchen so we could have a cuppa before we went food shopping. Many thanks to the owners who were on hand should we need anything.

    The cottage is in a lovely situation.The grounds are beautiful.Sadly the cottage was rather damp and the beds badly needed airing as the bedrooms were the most damp being downstairs. The cottage was not the best equipped for cooking that I have stayed in.It was very inconvenient not to be able to use the washing machine at night and to have nowhere to dry washing outside.I don't like to tumble dry when the weather is fine.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you for your comments. The cottage is not damp. The week you were here was very warm, so I have no idea how it could have been damp then, when this week it has been raining constantly and there is no trace of damp in the cottage now. The windows are opened, and the beds are aired out between guests, and since we had nobody in that cottage the week before you came, it was very well aired prior to your arrival. The linen was fresh, as it always is when guests arrive. We even gave you a change of linen free of charge as you requested. I'm not sure what other cooking equipment you wanted / expected. We feel what we supply is more than adequate for most guests, and if you were missing something in particular, we would have been happy to provide it for you. We make our guests aware at the start of their stay, that we live on site, and it was only a short walk to find us if you needed anything. We spoke to you on more than one occasion during your stay, and when asked if everything was okay, none of the issues were mentioned. We request that guests do not use the washing machine late at night, as it disturbs other guests. I'm sorry that this inconvenienced you. There is a washing line outside. Perhaps you didn't notice it.

    Great secluded location, however if you want some activity you are 13miles from the nearest seaside towns. very well equipped & clean. John, the owner is very welcoming and at hand should you need it or if you want to be left alone, that's fine too. We were a family consisting of 2 adults & 2 teenagers, plenty of room and very good value for money.
