Cottage
Farwell Cottage is a delightful 400 year old Devon longhouse and is the perfect base for a couple, group of friends or small family (and the dog) to escape to beautiful Devon at any time of year. The cottage is a quaint but surprisingly spacious three bedroom property in the perfect setting to enjoy both the coast and the countryside. If you want to forget the car, we are actually on the South Devon Coast path - so its a 15 minute walk to the fabulous award winning beach at Blackpool Sands (20 minutes back!) and around 50 minutes walk into the historic town of Dartmouth. The cottage is secluded within lush woodland, yet right in the middle of this vibrant village - its a just a few minutes walk to the well stocked village shop, the friendly Green Dragon pub and the superb Radius 7 bras...Farwell Cottage is a delightful 400 year old Devon longhouse and is the perfect base for a couple, group of friends or small family (and the dog) to escape to beautiful Devon at any time of year. The cottage is a quaint but surprisingly spacious three bedroom property in the perfect setting to enjoy both the coast and the countryside. If you want to forget the car, we are actually on the South Devon Coast path - so its a 15 minute walk to the fabulous award winning beach at Blackpool Sands (20 minutes back!) and around 50 minutes walk into the historic town of Dartmouth. The cottage is secluded within lush woodland, yet right in the middle of this vibrant village - its a just a few minutes walk to the well stocked village shop, the friendly Green Dragon pub and the superb Radius 7 brasserie. The cottage is attached to Farwell House, the original Georgian rectory, and would have been auxiliary accommodation probably for servants. Today, the cottage has its own entrance and private garden to the side, and shares the courtyard with the main house (no guest access to courtyard). Note that we are a few minutes walk from the Stoke Lodge Hotel (next door actually), and guests are able to make use of their leisure facilities (indoor and outdoor pool, jacuzzi, sauna) at half the usual guest price. Entering through the stable door, there are several steps up into the large open plan lounge with log burner and small dining area with views over the gardens. Note that the rest of the property is on one level, which may be of interest for those with reduced mobility (the cottage can be accessed through the back door where there is just one main step and a shallow step) or if you have small children/buggy. Kitchen - newly fitted (2018) and well appointed with quartz work tops and breakfast bar. Single Neff electric fan assisted oven, Neff induction hob, integrated fridge/freezer, microwave and dishwater. Nespresso coffee machine. There is a washer/dryer in the utility room at the back of the cottage. Living room/Dining Area A lovely, airy room open to the rafters, with comfortable sofa and two arm chairs. 43' Flatscreen TV with Freesat, DVD player and Sonos sound system. Log burning stove with logs according to season. Dining alcove with table that seats 4 people. Bedroom 1 King size sleigh bed with dressing table, chest of drawers, built in wardrobe and single sofa bed. 2nd and 3rd Bedroom The second/third bedroom is at the other end of the cottage therefore affords complete privacy. Bedroom 3 leads off bedroom 2. There are 3 ft single beds, chest of drawers and built in wardrobe in the corridor. Family Bathroom Bath with shower over, wash basin, WC and heated towel rail. Garden Description Lovely cottage garden reached through the front door is secluded with garden furniture. Note that the garden is not securely fenced so if you bring a dog, it needs to be under control. There is the perfect dog walking recreation field at the top of the drive though! (No access to the central courtyard at present). The recreation field also has a children's playground. Parking One allocated parking space with additional space directly outside of the cottage. Lock box access, but owners and family are on site answer any questions and to make sure that everything is as required for a wonderful relaxing holiday. More

Communication between Marion and myself was very good, and Marion answered my many questions. We arrived at the property and the four of us were very impressed. The cottage is very cosy and comfortable. It was a cold December night when we arrived but the...More

About the neighbourhood
The village and the surrounds: Situated in a clifftop position with panoramic views along the 9 mile sweep of Start Bay in South Devon, the village of Stoke Fleming is a great place to visit at any time of year. The village itself is a thriving community , the social life of which is centred on its pub, post office, primary school, church, village hall and range of clubs and interest groups. Below the village lies Blackpool Sands, and beyond that several miles of beaches. The busy and attractive riverside town of Dartmouth is just three miles away, with much to offer ashore and afloat.
Getting around
Dartmouth has a huge amount to offer - we have a guidebook for the area we have compiled. For children, crab lining is always popular, or for more prescribed entertainment Woodlands or Pennywell Farm are excellent for more rainy day activities. The boat and steam rail trips are very well recommended and appeal to all. You can also hire your own small motor boat for the family for the day and go up river to the Sharpham vineyard and Totnes. Brixham is the lively, vibrant fishing town across the river with pirate roots (you are bound to see one). Its a bit more gritty than Dartmouth - again loads of boat trips but out to sea.
