Garden Cottage is close to the beach and the chic coastal town of Dartmouth. You’ll love Garden Cottage because of the location, the wood burner, the tennis court, the peace and tranquility. With two bedrooms it a perfect size for couples, or a couple with children. This cottage is exactly 1 mile away from the amazing Blackpool Sands beach (listed in 2013 as Britain's best beach- and we agree!), and if you're looking for a lovely seaside break in Devon, you've found the perfect location.

The space

Garden Cottage is a beautiful former barn set within the original courtyard of the farm. It's since been beautifully converted into a cottage combining original features with all the modern day requirements necessary for modern day living. The front door opens into a very useful area for shoes and coats to be stored. You then move through to the living room with it's wonderful wood burner, wooden beamed ceiling and large double doors opening on to the rear garden.

From the living room you can access the fully equipped modern cottage kitchen with the dining table to seat four. The stairs to the bedrooms and family bathroom lead up from the corner of the living room, opening on to the landing where you will find the family bathroom with a shower over the bath. The master bedroom has a king size bed with an ensuite shower room. The window overlooks the fish pond looking down towards the tennis court. The twin bedroom has two 3 foot single beds plus the option of a z-style temporary bed for a fifth person.

Guest access

Guests have access to the shared tennis court in the complex, listed in The Telegraph as one of the top ten most beautiful tennis courts in Britain! You can also take a stroll around the well manicured gardens. Garden Cottage is off the central courtyard area of the Higher Bowden complex, a small complex of holiday cottages.

Interaction with guests

We'll provide full details of everything you need to know prior to your stay, and if you need our support whilst on holiday, we live a few miles away.

Other things to note

The cottage is located exactly 1 mile from Blackpool Sands. It is possible to walk there from the cottage, although this is down a narrow road between the cottage and the beach, and is all uphill on the return route, therefore we'd suggest, especially with little ones, that you jump in the car to head down to the beach.

Garden Cottage has parking space for only one car – There are visitor spaces in the complex but these are not available for a second vehicle, & are only available to visitors to the site and not for rental guests.

Beautiful, peaceful location, magical walk to Blackpool Sands along the lanes. So convenient for Dartmouth. Very comfortable accomodation. Definitely would go again.

Our stay was wonderful and we enjoyed the tips from the Host Quintin about the beaches. The kids loved Bigbury-on-Sea Beaches and spend few lovely days surfing. The place was great and kids loved it. On the rainy day we enjoyed the cosy wood-fireplace. Guest should know that the final mile drive to the cottage is a single country lane with few lay-bys need to drive carefully.

This is the perfect location for anyone who wants to escape the hustle and bustle of the city, or simply desires peace and tranquility, a meditative restive break from work. For three of us (plus toddler)the 2 bedroom cottage we stayed in was spacious, very comfortable and homely. We instantly took to the place; it's a hidden gem with a backdrop of rolling fields and lush countryside; also, importantly for us, a 25 minute walk to the incredible beach: Blackpool Sands. We didn't have a car, but that didn't stop us from walking to the incredible Torcross. A beautiful walk (blessed by sunny weather) that ended with a trip to a fabulous fish and chip restaurant at the end of Slapton Ley. A short bus trip to Dartmouth on our final day made this a memorable short-break. We'll certainly be back again.

We had a superb stay at Garden Cottage. It was only 3 nights but the cottage and location had everything a family needed. The place was modern and clean in a beautiful location. The tennis court was a fantastic bonus to keep a 9 year old happy.

Its a lovely place in a very nice secluded location, just close enough to everything (beach, Dartmouth, shops, places to eat, things to do) but just far enough away for piece and quiet. The cottage has everything you need for a very comfortable stay in a lovely part of the world.

Such a great appartment. We really enjoyed the few days we had here. The surrounding is amazing, the garden is cute and the appartment is spacious, well equipped and tastefully furnished. The beach is quite close, very easy to reach with a car, but also in a walkable distance. Thanks a lot.
