Located in Buckfastleigh within the Dartmoor National Park, is this quaint, little 19th-century holiday cottage, peacefully situated, but convenient terrace, built for mill workers. The cottage boasts lots of character and quirkiness, complimented by the owners flair and style. It has an enclosed, south-facing courtyard with garden furniture - a sun trap in the summer months. The living room has lots of beams and an inglenook ’living flame’ stove, and is decorated with warm colours. There are pretty views of the town and hills from the landing and the double bedroom. Buckfastleigh is a pleasant, little old town, with pubs, cafés, shops and a weekly farmers’ market, and is situated beside the River Dart and Buckfast Abbey. Also in the town, there is an outdoor swimming pool. Hop onto a train at the South Devon railway, or visit the butterfly and otter sanctuary which is close by. This little hideaway cottage is perfect for couples or for those with children seeking a quiet escape. It is 4 miles to Holne and 6 miles to Totnes, an attractive old town with summer boat trips to Dartmouth. An ideal base for visiting Dartmoor and the coast. A warm welcome awaits here at Sherwell Cottage. Beach 14 miles. Shops, pubs and restaurants 50 yards.

Lovely well-equipped cottage in a great location. Only quibble would be the stairs to the second bedroom - very steep and probably not suitable for young children.
