These attractive holiday barn conversions are tucked away in the quiet hamlet of Blagdon and situated just under 2 miles to the nearest beach, ideally located for a family holiday, not just in the summer but all year round. The properties have been renovated to a very good standard, with shared use of an outdoor heated swimming pool. Blagdon House Country Cottages (refs 28150, 28151, 28152 and UKC184) can be booked together to accommodate up to 24 guests.

There are many tourist attractions in the vicinity including Agatha Christie’s summer home, Babbacombe Model Village, and the award-winning Paignton Zoo. The Paignton and Dartmouth Steam Railway runs 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. Away from the coast there are plenty of places to visit, including the picturesque town of Totnes with some fine 16th-century buildings, and once a week there is a popular market. No trip would be complete without a visit to Dartmoor to climb one of the Tors or just take in the beauty and travel across the moor to Tavistock, where you can enjoy some dramatic scenery. There are many National Trust properties and plenty of 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. 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. Stoke Gabriel is only 3 miles away, located on the River Dart, whilst Dartington is nearby, known for its crystal. Beach 2 miles. Shop, pub and restaurant 1 mile.
These properties can be booked together to accommodate up to 24 guests.

As there was just 2 of us we had the choice of the standard double bed or the larger joined single beds. All necessary info was provided in advance and we let ourselves in as the owners were out. Helen checked we were all OK in the morning. We didn't use the pool as the weather was cool, but the neighbours were braver. Simple furnishings, but all that was needed. Quiet location, but not far from supermarkets and places to go. Had a good week.
