English Country Cottages

From a touch of luxury to characterful heritage, experience one of our truly inspiring holiday properties.


Situated just a mile from the beach and with many on-site facilities, Meadowsweet Cottage is perfect for those seeking an active holiday.

"Colourful gardens amidst acres of farmland – just a mile from South Devon’s golden sands . . ."

Just a mile inland from the beach and sea at Man Sands, these five cottages enjoy a gloriously secluded rural situation on a 47-acre working farm, yet are convenient for the delights of picturesque Kingswear (1½ miles) and historic Dartmouth. Imaginatively formed within a charming group of barns, they are set in superb landscaped shared gardens. An indoor heated swimming pool and a sauna have been created in a separate building, and a further barn offers facilities for table tennis, pool table, ‘fun’ netball and badminton. A spacious play area within a walled garden is equipped with swings, a sand pit, adventure playground, large outdoor trampoline (with safety netting), a large lawned area with raised decking, complete with garden furniture and views over the surrounding countryside; and here there is also an indoor playroom with ball pool, climbing frame and a range of children’s ride-on tractors and cars for outdoor use. The gardens are a riot of colour, with flower beds, tubs, hanging baskets and an intriguing network of brick paths, courtyards and paved terraces. Further afield the estate includes a well-stocked one-acre fishing lake (rods not supplied). Children are welcome to help feed the animals; and there are goats, ponies, kune kune pigs, sheep, lambs, rabbits and guinea pigs to make friends with. The taste of rural life at Nethway continues with walks through the fields.
The cottages themselves have been meticulously converted, with careful use of traditional stone and slate. All are tastefully furnished and decorated throughout, and comprehensively equipped. All of the properties have their own patios with furniture (Hyssop and Lovage Cottages have their own lawned garden), and all enjoy shared use of a separate barbecue area. They are ideal for holidays at any time of the year – all properties are cosily heated throughout and this region is especially beautiful in the quieter off-season months. For Christmas and New Year holidays, each cottage has a festively decorated Christmas tree and the roaring log fires in all living rooms are ideal for the Autumn and Winter months. This peninsula is a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is renowned for its coastline, which offers coastal walks and a choice of footpaths leading to secluded beaches. The village of Kingswear itself is set on the Dart estuary opposite Dartmouth – which can be reached via ferry. Here you will find a wealth of things to do, including the Kingswear–Paignton steam railway, Paignton Zoo and Woodlands Leisure Park, to name but a few, and many Blue Flag beaches and hidden coves are within easy reach. Coleton Fishacre (NT) is 1 mile away. Torquay, Brixham and Paignton offer an array of seaside attractions and are within easy driving distance. Dittisham and Totnes make excellent river excursions from Dartmouth, and Dartmoor is only 45 minutes drive. Golf, sailing and riding can all be enjoyed locally and the nearby coastline boasts a choice of surfing beaches. Shops 1½ miles.

    Meadowsweet is an excellent place for families with small children. It was great for our two and a half year old grandson to have an interesting, manageable and above all safe environment to explore and play in. He very much enjoyed visiting and feeding the animals and playing in the playroom. The pool was fun but small so important to to pick a time when other families weren't there too. The cottage was very comfortable with good sitting ares inside and out and there was plenty of hot water at any time of the day. The location was excellent near to so many excellent things to do. Our list of recommendations would be: lunch at Oopsydebsys in Kingswear (probably the best mussels ever), fish and chips on the harbour at Brixham, steam train Kingswear to Paignton, Man Sands and (not so much for toddlers) the NT house at Coleton Fishacre and afternoon tea at Vintage Tea in Totnes. Small criticisms: we think the cottage should be equipped with bin bags, washing up sponge and toilet paper. The broken toys in the playroom should be thrown out.

    We had an absolutely great time here! It is a lovely environment, cottage and facilities were great. Would definitely visit again. The only minor point was that the hot water would not always work
