Description

Acorn Cottage is situated in a peaceful location where guests can enjoy access to the shared pool – perfect for a morning swim.

Dating back to the 13th century these charming holiday cottages occupy a peaceful location, and command views over the owners’ 250-acre working Charolais beef farm, bordered by the River Teign on the edge of the village of Teigngrace. This lovely and popular part of South Devon has much to offer with glorious beaches, meandering estuaries and some very pretty countryside. Also within easy striking distance is the rugged expanse of Dartmoor, its wild beauty changing colour with the varying seasons, its picturesque villages, Dartmoor ponies and Tors. Walnut Cottage (ref 26729) and Oakapple Cottage (ref 26721) are barn conversions offering comfortable holiday accommodation. Acorn Cottage (ref 25544) and Oak Leaves (ref 25560) were originally farm buildings and have since been carefully converted into two spacious and very comfortable holiday cottages. Side by side each has its own patio. The Farmhouse (ref 25545) was the original farmhouse since 1640 and this now has been tastefully converted for use as a holiday cottage. Barnyard Cottage (ref 25546) is the original building, built in the 13th century and was in later years the kitchen for the farmhouse; now it has been tastefully converted to form a very comfortable holiday home. The owners will be delighted to show children around the farm and are always on hand to tell guests of the many attractions this lovely area has to offer. There are also chickens wandering around the farm, look out for the eggs. There is also a designated dog walking area, set in half an acre. Situated close to the owners caravan park, but retaining their privacy, all of the cottages have use of the heated outdoor swimming pool, there are also 2 coarse fishing lakes, (must have own licence or purchase a day ticket). Twelve Oaks is an ideal location for those who want to leave behind the strains of city living and relax in a peaceful rural setting. Wander along pretty streams, explore rambling woods, and trek over undulating hills. There are so many attractions close by including Go Ape or cycling in nearby Haldon Hill, Crealy Adventure Park and Woodlands all within a 25 mile radius. Closer to home, visit Paignton Zoo, Model Village at Babbacombe or the cliff railway. There are some very nice sandy beaches in Paignton, Dawlish, and Goodrington. Take a look at all the NT places such as Castle Drogo or Agatha Christies home Greenway. Take a ferry to Dartmouth and visit the castle or take a boat trip up the river. There is the steam train that is always a fun day out. Bird watching at the nature reserve in Dawlish Warren, or for walkers, walk the Templar Way from Teignmouth to Haytor - 21 miles. Shop, pub and restaurant 1 mile.

    Second visit and again happy. I am sure we will visit again. Since last time there have also been facility improvements which shows they care about their clients.

    The location of this cottage is fantastic and we loved the on site pool but unfortunately we did not feel that the cottage was worth the price we paid for it. Shortly after our arrival we noticed that the freezer did not work. We reported this to the owners who said they would come and have a look at it but they did not and we were without a freezer for the remainder of our stay. We also found the double bed so uncomfortable to sleep on (the springs had gone resulting in a big dip half way down the bed, obvious to anyone who changed the sheets so we were sure the owners were aware of it) that we suffered aching backs for the few nights that we spent in the bed but resorted to sleeping for the rest of our stay on the sofas downstairs. Finally, we experienced water dripping through the kitchen ceiling following using the upstairs shower. Again we reported this to the owners by a leaving a message on their phone but they did not come to inspect the problem. We discussed it with them when we checked out and they were already aware of the problem but didn't appear overly concerned. It's a shame. With a bit of care and thought, it could be a really lovely cottage.

    The accommodation was excellent and very much value for money. My wife and I found that all the basics we needed for our stay were available. A minor disadvantage was lack of freezer compartment in fridge and although we easily adapted to that I do a lot of cooking and not sure how we would have managed if I had brought any amount of frozen pre cooked food to offset costs. We shared the cottage with our mothers, who are both in their 80's and they really enjoyed their stay. They both had no problem moving around the cottage and surrounding area, utilising the facilities showers etc. The owners were friendly and the surrounding area was ideal for a quite and relaxed holiday. Although located in a completely rural position the local superstores are a relatively short drive away at the near side of Newton Abbot and so easily accessible when required. A possible advantage in some circumstances was that the farm had a pristinely kept camp site which could be useful for extended family holidays where there was a requirement for varied accommodation. A small aside - if you are not a vegetarian the specialist beef herd provides excellent product and we bought a number of cuts on our departure all of which lasted a very short time once back in Leicester. All in all no problem at all in recommending this accommodation and am sure we will return to the farm in the future.

    Spent a week in this lovely cottage, in a beautiful location. Really friendly owners and the flowers, muffins, tea, coffee and milk on arrival was a lovely touch! We had a fabulous time and will definitely return next year.
