English Country Cottages

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


A paradise for families; there are games rooms, sauna and swimming pool which are just some of the facilities.

"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.

    Great location for families with the swimming pool and play area. The owners were easily accessible, friendly and sorted out the minor unforeseeable problems that arose. only criticism being the two settees in the lounge, needed replacing for more comfortable seating.

    Lovely cottage with small children. No phone signal was a pain. The play room was good but we felt that it needed a good tidy up and remove some of the old broken toys. It looked and felt quite tired in there!!

    This is the second time we've stayed at Nethway farm. The first time was fantastic. This time it was obvious that the owners are neglecting the facilities. Broken toys, broken playroom door, mould on the outdoor play equipment etc. Very disappointed hopefully some investment will be made.

    Response from: Administrator

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you for your comments. We are sorry that you felt that we were not up to standard. We invest a huge amount of money and time each year keeping our five properties to a high standard. We have a constant program of upgrading, adding new kitchens to two properties last year and an extra bathroom will be added to Tarragon this winter. We have put all new windows in all five cottages in the last two years and upgraded the Wi-Fi last winter as this was a recurring issue for guests. Not all our improvements are visible unfortunately such as a new water treatment and sewerage system. The week before your stay we added a lot of new toys to the play room so we are rather puzzled by this comment. The door however has been repaired, unfortunately it gets left open and bangs in the wind thus we have to keep repairing it. We do try to repair things as soon as it is brought to our attention. We do however welcome all constructive feedback in order to maintain our property to its highest standards.
