Dray Cottage is set in the small hamlet of Fallapit, just outside the village of East Allington midway between the towns of Kingsbridge, Totnes and Dartmouth. This AONB has many sandy beaches and stunning coastline very close by, including Blue Flag beaches Slapton Sands, Beesands, East Portlemouth, Bantham, Bigbury and Thurlestone. The town of Dartmouth is nestled on the River Dart and offers boat trips, exclusive shops, galleries, many pubs and some famous restaurants. Totnes, 5 miles up the river, is a town steeped in history, enjoying a colourful and exuberant atmosphere, while Salcombe is another pretty riverside town, boasting a busy estuary with many yachts sailing by and a myriad of interesting shops and pubs in its winding streets. There are several National Trust properties in the area to explore and some delightful open gardens. With the South Hams coastal path stretching over 60 miles there is great walking and time can be spent exploring the rugged moorland.
A little further afield and well worth a visit is the Eden Project in Cornwall. Riding, sailing, sea and coarse fishing are available locally, as well as a good variety of shopping. Shops 3 miles, pubs ½ mile.

Comfortable Cottage in a lovely quiet place, and yet easily accessible to the coast, Dartmoor and local shops. Nice walks, lovely grounds. Overall, a super place.

A great holiday home for three families, would use again. Kitchen well equipped with everything you might need but as others have said a strange layout. Very comfortable beds and two shower/bathrooms with everlasting hot water. Parking for two cars but others can be accommodated in the visitor parking area. One small criticism is the lack of noise insulation from filling cisterns, etc which with young/babies can be a bit of a distraction. overall though we all enjoyed our stay at Dray Cottage and would go again.
