Set within the heart of the popular South Hams, Dovecote House is a unique country property compiled of two joined houses, offering a premium quiet rural retreat minutes from the coast.

With two very generous bedrooms within the main property, plus a nursery and two further large bedrooms in the attached second house, the accommodation offers extensive space for up to 8 guests. Perfect for two families or groups of friends wanting to holiday together but have their own space.

The space
Dovecote House is a unique, idyllic 19th century grade-2 listed house and forms part of the picturesque hamlet of Membland, surrounding the former Membland Hall, once home to Lord and Lady Revelstoke. Dovecote House makes up the south-wing of the u-shaped former stable block offering pleasant views of the central courtyard and the other joined homes.

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

The accommodation on offer comprises of two separate but joined houses sounded by 1 acre of private enclosed gardens and woods.

Within the main house you will find two very large light airy bedrooms with kingsize/super king size beds, plus a small nursery with cot. Feather duvets and pillows are provided along with crisp white linen for the beds and fluffy White Company towels for all guests. If you’d prefer synthetic pillows or duvets, please just ask.

A walk-in shower room and separate newly renovated bathroom with over bath shower adjacent to the bedrooms can also be found. Complimentary toiletries included within both properties.

There is also a downstairs toilet and fully equipped utility room with 2 washing machines and 2 dryers available for guests to use.

The main house also features a light airy living room with comfy sofas and log burner plus a separate dining room over looking the south facing garden.

The very well equipped kitchen with large range cooker leads onto a pantry area with secondary fridge and freezer and dishwasher.

At the rear of the property is a private enclosed courtyard garden, perfect for a sunny breakfast or alfresco evening drinks.

In the second joined house, there are two large bedrooms on the top floor overlooking the beautiful south facing garden, both with either super kingsize beds or can be separated to make two twin beds in each room.
The house also features a modern recently refurbished bathroom with integrated over bath shower.

A cozy sitting room features a Smart TV with Netflix, DVD player and games console plus a dining area for 4.
The compact but very well equipped kitchen has everything you need to make even the most extravagant meal.

A key feature of the property is the private south facing garden with large lawned area, woods, orchard and various seating and dining areas.

We provide a generous supply of complimentary breakfast items to get you started, including: fresh bread, cereals, milk, juice, butter and conserves as well as eggs from our chickens. Our 5 chickens will provide you with fresh eggs every day and you’re welcome to feed and pet them!
Tea and coffee supplies provided including Nespresso capsules.

Off street parking for 6 cars.

The two properties on offer comprise of the main house being our family home which we rent out through Airbnb only in the summer and the other a dedicated property let separately throughout the year on Airbnb for up to 4 guests. See separate listing for details and our hundreds of reviews from the last two years for this property.

Please note that Dovecote House is on the end of a u-shaped former stable complex comprising of 5 homes in total. However the garden and home are very private and not over looked.

The dining and living room in the main house can accommodate 8 guests but please be aware these rooms are not vast and it is a little squeeze to accommodate 8 adults at once.

We are happy for a maximum of two well behaved small/medium sized dogs to stay.

Other things to note
The main house is our family home when we’re not travelling so there are some cupboards in the two bedrooms we close off with personal items in.

Newton Ferrers, England, United Kingdom

Right on the the South West coastal path and 5 min drive to the beach. 1/2 mile to Newton Ferrers and Noss Mayo with 3 great foodie pubs.

Dovecote House 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 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 5-minute walk away, and the holiday house is close to unspoilt sandy beaches.
