This magical Grade II* listed Georgian bathing house sits beside the River Dart down half a mile of bumpy track two miles from Ashprington.
Part of the Sharpham Estate designed by Capability Brown, it is very special accommodation in the most romantic secluded setting you could wish for.
Head down the steps into the simple country style kitchen with its solid fuel range.
Upstairs you will find the charming double bedroom where you can wander out on to the balcony and watch wildlife around the river.
Up more stairs again is the magnificent octagonal sitting room with its lofty ceiling, grand plasterwork, a wood burning stove for snuggling up beside, a double sofa bed and windows where you can while away the hours gazing up and down the river and across the wooded banks with the telescope provided.
Outside you can wander down steps to the river or sit on your terrace to eat out or maybe try your luck fishing for bass.
The estate is fascinating to explore and wander.
During summer months you can swim in the outdoor unheated pool, or maybe visit the vineyard to taste the excellent wine or the cheese at the creamery, and buy some to take back to your cottage.
There is an excellent seasonal café for eating out if you don't feel like cooking, or you can head to the local village inns or Dartmouth and Totnes for a wide range of eateries and interesting shops.
There is a three mile walk to Totnes, where the motte and bailey castle is interesting, or you can enjoy fun trips on the steam railway to Buckfastleigh or boat trips along the River Dart to Dartmouth.
The Bathing House is a remarkable cottage for a very memorable break in beautiful Devon surroundings.
