Description

Rose Cottage serves as a fantastic exploring base as it is close to both Paignton and Torquay which both have great features.


In a tranquil village setting, 2 miles from the sandy beach at Paignton, these three adjoining single-storey holiday cottages, imaginatively converted from former farm buildings, retain splendid original roof beams and stone walls (references 29076, 29077 and 29078). Adjacent to the owner’s home, around the same pretty courtyard garden with a pond and fountain, they are attractively furnished in ‘New England’ style. The South Hams boasts the mildest climate in Britain. Paignton, 2 miles, and Torquay, 4 miles, has sailing, tennis and sports centre and coloured lights festoon the harbour by night. It has many good sandy beaches, giving it an almost Mediterranean feel. Inland is the medieval town of Totnes, with a castle and 16th-century buildings, and once a week, there is an Elizabethan and farmers’ market. From the quayside, there are boat trips down the River Dart to Dartmouth; the South Devon Railway runs steam trains to Buckfastleigh and along the coast to Kingswear, opposite Dartmouth. Take a ferry across to visit Dartmouth with its array of shops and restaurants, take a walk around the castle and enjoy one of the tea shops for a Devon cream tea. Within easy reach is the spectacular Dartmoor National Park. There are many tourist attractions close by including Agatha Christie’s summer home, Babbacombe’s model village and the award-winning Paignton Zoo. Away from the coast, visit Tavistock, where you can enjoy some dramatic scenery. There are many NT properties and plenty of surfing, swimming, sailing and angling. Torquay has a lot to offer, such as the Living Coasts, where the penguins wander freely, and the theatre which has shows all year round. The Roman city of Exeter is 15 miles, whilst bustling Torbay encompasses Torquay, Paignton and Brixham. Visit the yachting marina and a selection of fine gardens, in addition to Kent’s Cavern where the remains of some of Britain’s very earliest inhabitants were found. Discover the castles, abbeys, wildlife parks, steam trains and model railways, all within easy reach with many open throughout the year. Shop 700 yards, pub and restaurant 400 yards.

    Confirmed guest, 01/10/2016
    The bed had springs sticking out of side of mattress so two people unable to sleep together Could not use shower and bath together as drainage wouldn't allow because of flow back. General condition of property seemed lacking in maintenance ie worn out fixtures and fittings in bathrooms. There were cobwebs in the kitchen area. In summery maybe all this is because the business is up for sale and has been for the last 2 years according to the owner. We have been in some of your advertised property before and have always been satisfied but not this time.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; We are obviously disappointed with the comments made regarding your stay in Rose Cottage ref 29076. We would point out that you never made us aware of your concerns during your stay in order that we could rectify any problems, as in your Terms & Conditions. We do acknowledge that the bed was nearing the end of its life however your description is a gross exaggeration and it was simply unfortunate that the new mattresses that were on order for all of our properties did not arrive until after your stay. We have just had our annual inspection by the Wyndham area manager and have received a renewal of our 4 star status so we feel the remainder of your comments are very unfair. If you look at the reviews, both in our guest books as well as on the website, for our other properties (ref: 29077 Mill Cottage Reevoo rated 8.6 and 29078 Jasmine Cottage rated 9.0) you will see many satisfied guests and Rose Cottage is exactly the same specification, design and décor so it is regrettable that we failed to live up to your expectations which may well be a little too high for this type of Barn Conversation property.
