    “The cottage inside was absolutely lovely, everything we could have wanted and the location was great.”

    ...

    The one problem is that the small courtyard garden is clearly designed to attract bees. It’s absolutely full of them. I have never seen a garden with anything approaching this number of bees. This meant that we couldn’t use the garden or even keep the bifold doors open. My children are scared of bees. I think this should be made clear in the listing as it’s important information, especially in a cottage marketed at families. I book a cottage with a garden because of my children and would not have chosen this cottage if I had known about the bees. ***** Owner Response We are so sorry that the guests were bothered by bees. We haven't had any other reports and we haven't intentionally encouraged bees. We will take on board the feed back and ask the gardeners to move the bee loving plants away from the patio. Please let the guests know that if there is a problem, to please inform us as soon as it arises. We can then take advice and act accordingly.

The property

Between the two village inns in the centre of Ashprington is this stylish cottage at the end of a row converted from a barn.

Head up a few steps into your porch to the front door which opens to the hall, a handy place for discarding coats and boots.

From here, you have a splendid open plan living space across the full width of the house, where you can cosy up beside the wood burner or fold back the bi-fold doors to let the sunshine in on a fine day.

At the end of the day, head upstairs to the three bedrooms, all equipped with TVs and comfy beds.

Outside you have your own enclosed lawned garden to the front of the cottage and another enclosed and private garden at the back where you can gather around the barbecue for family suppers.

If you don't feel like cooking, both the pubs serve great food, or head to the historic old towns of Totnes or Dartmouth for excellent restaurants and some shopping in the interesting independent stores.

Sharpham Vineyard is interesting to visit, perhaps for a tour but certainly to purchase some bottles for your holiday and some cheese from the on-site creamery, and there is a good seasonal café serving fresh local produce there too.

1 Brooking Barn is in a convenient central location for exploring the South Hams with its lovely beaches or the drama of the Dartmoor National Park.
