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.

    Looked good but very dark inside, lighting could be better. I could not read my book inside. Four poster bed looked inviting but mattress very uncomfortable, we resorted to sleeping in the single beds. Tv so small, I didn't think they were ever made that small.

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you for taking the time to post your comments. I would like to take a moment to respond. We do describe the cottage on the current web site as “cosy” and there is little we can do to improve natural light short of major structural changes. With regard to lighting, with one main pendant light, two coffee table lights, one uplighter and 4 spots I am a little surprised you found it inadequate. To add much more might make the room look crowded. The bed mattress regrettably is very much a matter of taste and for everyone that dislikes it others find it acceptable as you would have seen from the comments in our guest book which (as much as we would like) we are not allowed to publish. It’s a shame that those very positive comments never reach the internet. It is also only 6 years into the 8 year life that mattresses are recommended to have but we will look at this at the end of the season. Finally the TV is far from the smallest that is available however most of our guests come for a holiday and don’t find TV to be an important part of their stay which is also the reason why we don’t have such services as Sky or similar. This comes from the conversations we have with guests over the past number of years. It must be remembered that we are a cottage and not a hotel and the services we offer are to fit that criteria. We have just undergone our annual inspection (not long after your stay) and were found to be worthy of the 4 star with which we were awarded. I do hope our failings as you perceive them did not stop you from enjoying this lovely part of the country.

    The owners were very friendly and the location excellent. The beds were comfortable and clean. I think as we booked very late the place was not quite as clean as it should have been but not a great issue. The main area for improvement is in the equipment supplied. There were no saucepans in the kitchen, we had to use pyrex dishes which is a bit odd. Personally we would have liked a bigger TV. Otherwise we have no real negative comments

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; We were so sorry to read your comment posted following your stay at Rose cottage. We have just been into the cottage and found the saucepans in the left hand cupboard under the cooker so it is a mystery why you did not find them. Likewise we did tell you that if there were any issues to come and see us, and we could have alleviated the need to use the Pyrex dishes by providing replacements. All our cottages are fully equipped and there should have been no need for you to have been inconvenienced in this way so we are very sorry for this and hope it did not spoil the enjoyment of your holiday.

    We spent a lovely, peaceful and comfortable week at Rose Cottage in October 2015. The cottage was really well equipped with everything needed for a self catering holiday. We would recommend it to all our family and friends.

    Nice cottage, nice location, comfortable, relaxing, easy access to local facilities and places to visit. Made to feel very welcome on arrival and that initial need- welcome pack cup of tea! All the makings of a good holiday which is what we wanted and what we got. Many thanks to Colin and Pauline.
