THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS! Countryside and seaside just minutes away. Smart and modern, very family friendly 2 bed house with all mod-cons. Completely redecorated throughout with lovely kitchen & bathroom. Everything you need for the kids included. 15 mins from the beach and 30 mins from stunning Dartmoor and Exeter. Friendly active village with 3 pubs, vineyard, playpark, shop & more. Close to hundreds of brilliant days out. Great for walkers, cyclists, wine fans, families & couples. All welcome.

The space
We moved to this stunning part of the country from London 3 years ago and haven't looked back. Happy to be on hand to offer advice on local schools, work, housing, etc. as well as suggesting days out. The cottage is in our garden so we are always around if you need anything.

Family friendly: We have 4 children so understand exactly what it's like to travel with little people. We are completely welcoming to children and can provide: toys / books / jigsaws, travel cots (x2), highchairs (x2), stair gates (x2), baby monitor, microwave for sterilising bottles, potty, food processor for mushing up baby food, changing mats and a garden with swing, small climbing frame and Wendy house to play in.

I'm sorry - no dogs.

Access: There are stairs in the cottage but they are very secure and have a double hand rail. The shower is a walk in shower.

Lounge/diner: We have a large lounge/diner with 3 seater reclining leather settee and arm chair. There are coffee tables and a cupboard full of games and leaflets about the area. We have finished the room off with a basket of toys for our younger visitors, a TV and DVD player. The table seats 6 comfortably.

Kitchen: A brand new, shiny kitchen has been fitted which includes everything you could need: crockery, cutlery, bottle opener, pizza slice, sharp knives, saucepans, frying pans, bin bags, washing up liquid, cleaning products and more.

There is also a brand new dishwasher, cooker with grill and hob, washer/dryer, microwave, small food mixer (ideal for baby food), fridge and freezer.

Bedroom 1: The front bedroom has a king-sized bed and an amazing window with stunning views over the estuary and countryside. There is a wardrobe, chest of drawers, bedside tables and lights. There is plenty of space for a travel cot if needed (we can lend you one). The room is painted white with a fab mustard coloured wall.

The back bedroom: Ideal for kids or more adults - or any combination - there is a triple bunk bed (a double on the bottom and a single on top). We are happy for adults or children to share.

We can also provide some temporary beds for extra kids if you need them, as well as a travel cot (we have 4 kids so understand how much stuff you need!).

Bathroom: Again, a brand new bathroom has been fitted with stunning walk in shower, bath, loo, sink, gorgeous tiled floor and towel rail. Towels are provided.

Extras: Tea, coffee, sugar, cleaning stuff and loo rolls are provided to help you settle in. We also provide a welcome breakfast tray which includes tea, coffee, milk, sugar, bread, butter, cereal and jam. We are happy to help you arrange day trips, restaurants, food shop deliveries, etc - just send me a message.

All types of family are very welcome, as well as couples and single travellers. We look forward to welcoming you to our home.

Where you’ll be

Bishopsteignton, England, United Kingdom

The house is on the edge of a very friendly and active village. Our garden backs on to the vineyard and you can hear both seagulls and cows. We have amazing river views and plenty of space. We are walking distance from the vineyard, 3 pubs, shop, playground, post office, chemist and Dr and yet you can't hear anything (other than our kids sometimes!).

All major supermarkets are within a 20 min drive, with Waitrose and Morrison’s 10 mins away by car.

There is always something happening locally: festivals in Teignmouth, regattas in Shaldon and other celebrations in local towns and villages. Alternatively, you can walk 5 minutes and be in the countryside where the only other living souls will be cows and seagulls.

Teignmouth was listed in the Guardian Hot List of Places to go on Holiday in 2017 -
