Unique holiday home in the heart of the popular South Hams, Dovecote House offers a quiet rural retreat with two large bedrooms, bathroom with shower, spacious living room and use of a shared south-facing garden. Price includes a generous continental breakfast with fresh eggs. Right on the South West coastal path and 5 min drive to the beach. 1/2 mile to Newton Ferrers with 2 great foodie pubs.

The space
Dovecote House is set over the 1st and 2nd floors of a 19th century grade-2 listed building. It forms part of the picturesque hamlet of Membland, surrounding the former Membland Hall, once home to Lord and Lady Revelstoke.

Decorated and refurbished throughout to a high standard Dovecote House makes a great base for exploring South Devon.

The spacious accommodation is suited to either a family or two couples with two large bedrooms and the option of twin or super king-size beds in either room.

You approach Dovecote House though the mature South-facing garden, once in the building the internal stone staircase leads to the comfortable living/dining room with big comfy L-shaped sofa and large TV as well as the dinning area. This is a great space for relaxing or socialising.

The snug but well-equipped kitchen provides everything you will need. Oven, electric hob, microwave, fridge with small freezer compartment, Nespresso machine (and kettle) plus dishwasher.

We provide a generous complimentary breakfast 'hamper' at the start of your stay including fresh bread, cereals, milk, juice, butter, conserves and fresh eggs from our chickens.

The bathroom features a large over-bath powerful shower, sink and toilet. Complimentary toiletries included along with 2 white fluffy towels per person. The bathroom is situated on the first floor, one floor downstairs from the bedrooms.

On the top floor of the house there are two very generous bedrooms. Both feature either 2 large single beds, or both can be zipped together to create a 'proper' super king-sized bed in each room. If zipped together a mattress protector is added so don't worry, you won't feel the join! Feather duvets and pillows are provided along with crisp white linen for all beds. If you’d prefer synthetic, please just ask.

One small/medium sized dog is allowed with an additional charge of £20 per stay.

There are also 4 adult bikes for you to use throughout your stay to explore the surrounding area, free of charge.

All linen and big fluffy white towels for guests will be provided.

Off street parking available for up to three cars.

Where you’ll be

Membland, England, United Kingdom

The Dovecote sits in the middle of the pretty hamlet of Membland which is in a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, half a mile from the Yealm estuary and just one mile from the idyllic water-side villages of Newton Ferrers and Noss Mayo where you'll find three excellent pubs, Coop grocery store, butchers and post office as well as direct access to the water - great for sailing, paddle boarding or just splashing around.

One of the most beautiful stretches of the South Devon Coastal Footpath, managed by the National Trust, is a 10-minute walk away, and the holiday house is close to unspoilt sandy beaches.

During your stay

We're a couple in our early 40’s who moved to Devon from London in the Summer of 2016 and are now renting the east wing of our home. We are experienced air bnb'ers and have worked in hospitality for many years previously - see our profile for lots of positive reviews.

We really care about our guests and your stay with us. We pride ourselves on our attention to detail as well as providing some little extras you wouldn't usually expect in a self catering property. We really hope you have a fantastic experience while staying at Dovecote House and we're on hand to help with any requests either before, during or after your stay.

We live next door to Dovecote House so will be on hand to help with any thing throughout your stay. Please be aware that the house is attached to our family home and the garden is shared with ourselves. Although we're more than happy for you to make yourselves at home.
Dan works from home so is around most of the time. Please note we have a black Labrador who joined the family in January 2017 so you will probably meet her in the garden. We also have a two year old little boy Bertie.
