    “We loved the peaceful location of the cottage but still within easy reach of so many places of interest.”

    The indoor and outdoor pools were a huge bonus too. The cottage was spotless and we would highly recommend.

About the property

Perched on the outskirts of the quaint village of Blackawton in Devon, is this superb cottage, Spring Cottage.

Set over two floors and sleeping up to four guests, Spring Cottage enjoys an idyllic location in Sheplegh Court, where you can take advantage of the onsite facilities including an outdoor swimming pool, tennis court and expansive gardens, as well as having easy access to Dartmouth and Totnes.

Step into the property, where you can discard any coats and shoes in the entrance hall after your journey.

Be welcomed into the comfortable living/dining room, where you can look forward to snuggling up on the sofa and watching your favourite film on the TV.

Cook up a storm in the fully functioning kitchen, which has everything you will need to create tasty meals for your guests, before settling down around the dining table to enjoy and toast to a wonderful holiday.

After a long day of exploring, pour in the bubbles and treat yourself to a long soak in the bath, followed by popping on fresh pyjamas and catching your rest in one of two well-presented bedrooms, a king-size and a twin.

Wake-up and prepare for the day in style before joining your guests out on the shared courtyard to sip morning coffees or opt for a game of tennis.

Head into the local village where you will find an impressive 14th-century church, a well-stocked village shop with a Post Office and a welcoming family-run pub, The George Inn, where you can tuck-in to a delicious meal and have a night off from the kitchen.

For a wider selection of amenities, head to the market town of Kingsbridge, where you can delve into history at the Kingsbridge Cookworthy Museum, peruse the art at the Red Propeller Gallery or take a leisurely walk around the estuary whilst soaking up the beautiful views.

Next stop is Dartmouth, with its historical Tudor fortress of Bayard’s Cove, the imposing Dartmouth Castle with its 15th-century tower and the Dartmouth Museum, you will be spoilt for choice for things to do!

If you have time, be sure to take a ferry over to Kingswear, where you will find the impressive Kingswear Castle and the National Trust site of Coleton Fishacre, a beautiful 1920’s property with vibrant gardens.

Further afield is Totnes, which is home to Totnes Castle which sits upon a hill which when atop, provides expansive views over the town and beyond.

There is also the Totnes Museum which is set in a restored 16th-century merchant’s house, where you can learn more about the town’s cultural history.

For a relaxing getaway to South Devon, look no further than Spring Cottage.

About the location


Dartmouth 5.7 miles; Kingsbridge 7.5; Totnes 8.1 miles

Blackawton and the surrounding hamlets and villages are well placed for a tranquil South Devon break. In easy reach of Dartmouth and the beaches of Start Bay, the location offers a delightful balance between seclusion and convenience, with a wealth of picturesque walks, welcoming local pubs and more on your doorstep. In the centre of the village on Main Street, the 14th century Parish Church of St Michael completes the setting whole-heartedly. The George Inn is a family-run pub in the heart of the village. Situated across from the church, this dog-friendly inn backs onto some beautiful South Hams countryside, and there are outside tables where you can relax and take in the scenery. Nearby, Halwell is a small village in wooded farmland equidistant from the busy little town of Kingsbridge and popular Totnes - A charming Devon town with a bustling main street and a regular market, the area boasts regular outdoor markets on Fridays and Saturdays. During the main season, between May and September, there is an Elizabethan market each Tuesday morning.
