Set in the heart of rolling Devon countryside, the privately owned Ashcombe country estate nestles in a quiet, beautiful valley filled with things to do and a short drive from the sandy beaches of Dawlish and Torquay. Enjoy walking around the estate’s hills and woodlands, swim in the heated indoor swimming pool, or relax in the sauna at Woodhouse Farm while children play in the indoor and outdoor playgrounds. Both The Cider Barn, a mile away and sleeping 16, and Nut Tree Farm, sleeping 28, have their own outdoor swimming pools for the summer.
The cottages are both comfortable and practical, with a wide range of Devon attractions right on the doorstep. All are maintained to very high standards with leather sofas, Wi-Fi, flatscreen digital TVs and very comfortable beds. Many retain original features, including oak beamed ceilings, and all have either Italian-tiled or wooden floors.
Sleeping from 4 to 22 people, and rated either 4 or 5 stars, the cottages can accommodate almost any party size, and an in-house chef (arranged direct with the owner) can be booked to take care of the catering.
The brilliant Ashcombe Adventure Centre for outdoor activities, is just under a mile down the lane. Available at extra cost for those 14 years and over, it offers quad bike safaris, clay pigeon shooting, archery, paintballing and more. Also located on the estate is ’A Touch of the Wild’, a camp-based forest activity club. Children can take part in bush-craft courses and activities ranging from camp fire cooking and toasting marshmallows to bug hunting and learning woodland skills - a day with the experienced staff will ensure youngsters come away with a new found love of the great outdoors. The Ashcombe Village Club opens on various evenings providing cheap beer in a cheerful atmosphere, event evenings, traditional summer fêtes and shows.
Both Dartmoor National Park and the historic city of Exeter are only a 20-minute drive away, while the famous South Devon Coast, with wonderful sandy beaches, is barely 3 miles. Exeter and Newton Abbot Racecourses, several golf courses, loads of family theme parks, zoos, sailing and fishing are all within easy reach, not to mention the many excellent pubs and restaurants that Devon is famous for. Walk in the wild beauty of Dartmoor with its abundance of wildlife and dramatic landscapes, or visit the numerous nearby National Trust properties including Agatha Christie’s house, Greenway. Steam trains travel from Kingswear to Paignton and Totnes to Buckfastleigh. Visit historic Dartmouth with bustling boat harbour, castle, contemporary art galleries and boutiques and brilliant Regatta Week and Air Show. Salcombe with its beaches, sailing and water sports is also easily accessible, as well as Blackpool Sands, Slapton and picturesque Dittisham. Slightly further afield, East Cornwall and the Eden Project are within an hour’s drive.
All in all Ashcombe is an excellent base from which to explore, experience and enjoy ‘The Cream of Devon’. All big supermarkets deliver direct to your cottage. Main shops 3 miles.

    We all enjoyed our week in Freedom cottage. Very clean and spacious accommodation. Very good pool and sauna. No local amenities but we knew that before we booked. Very good communication with staff.

    Very nice location but would have expected a much higher standard of service for the high price- not even especially well furnished. Staff ( not very present not even on first day or two) friendly enough. Pool nice but closed at 9pm- when we would have used it after a long day out. Good but missing aload of potential

    RATS & REALLY SQUEAKY FLOORBOARDS

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Unfortunately there was a pest problem stemming from the nearby yard, which was dealt with as soon as it became apparent and took a couple of days to get under control (with no recurrence). We communicated with the guests throughout their stay. The guests were paid compensation following their stay and a gift and letter of apology at the time. We can only assume that the cleanliness score was (perhaps understandably) given due to the pest issue and not in relation to the cleaning carried out by our dedicated cleaners who take pride in the high standard of their work. The issue of squeaky floorboards has not been raised before, however, the property is a barn conversion and the nature of an old and uneven building means that there can be some movement and creaking of floorboards, we will monitor this going forward.

    This was our second stay at Freedom Cottage. It’s a lovely, clean good sized cottage with a great play area and indoor swimming pool. There’s plenty to do in the local area in all weathers. Highly recommend ?

    The description & photos do not this cottage justice, I would have no hesitation in recommending this cottage to any one. We will most definitely be rebooking later in the year.
