  • "Clean, comfortable and well equipped cottage which looked newly renovated."

    Easy check-in and the caretaker was quick to respond when contacted. Beautiful grounds and gardens and some games provided for children (and grown-ups). The only downside was that the master bedroom was damp which made the bed damp too. The autumn weather didn't help as it rained heavily every day. It is an old building, so these issues can't be avoided. We would come again and we enjoyed the region. Would recommend a visit to Slapton Sands!

    Claire, Thank you for your comments. I am glad that you had a good stay and would like to come again - perhaps in the summer. We discovered that the rear exterior stone wall of our cottage which borders the neighbouring smallholding had in a small section, suffered with some stonework falling away. This had left the inner skin exposed and hence the cold/damp patch which had developed. I am pleased to say that this has now been fully repaired. Thank you for pointing it out. Best regards, John Hill. Property Owner

The property

Slapton 1.8 miles.

Nestled in Devon’s breath-taking countryside near Slapton in the South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is Blackberry Cottage.

This charming, reverse-level holiday cottage benefits from a welcoming, bright and airy interior adorned with characterful features including exposed beams and A-frames and Velux windows, shared access to one and a half acres of grounds with seating areas, barbecue and ponds and a fabulous setting making most of both the countryside and coast; perfect for families or friends looking to explore Devon with their beloved canine companions.

Cross the threshold into your new home-from-home and climb the stairs to reach a sitting room, unwind here on the plush sofa or armchairs in front of the TV and gas flame-effect fire, ideal after a day full of exploration.

Later, wander into the fully-equipped kitchen/diner to rustle up a hearty meal that the whole family can enjoy around the dining table.

When the evening draws to a close, wash off the day in either the shower room or ground-floor bathroom before sloping off to sleep in one of three bedrooms; choose between a ground-floor twin or the king-size or bunk on the first floor.

If you can tear yourself away from this idyllic setting venture into the pretty village of Slapton where you can stock up on all of your self-catering essentials, enjoy a break from the kitchen at local pubs like The Tower Inn or The Queen’s Arms which both serve delicious food.

Be sure to take advantage of the cottages setting close to the beach by exploring the glorious coast at Slapton Sands which has stunning sea views or the iconic Slapton Ley Nature Reserve where you can marvel at local wildlife brimming around the freshwater lake.

Follow the coast to find the historic town of Dartmouth where you can immerse yourself in the area’s history at the Riverside Dartmouth Castle and Bayard’s Cove or while away days upon the sandy and shingle shores of Blackpool sands which is hugely popular with watersports enthusiasts.

Dartmoor National Park is also within reach offering keen ramblers an abundance of walking and hiking trails as well as climbing, cycling and horse riding; all in a picturesque setting.

Make memories at Blackberry Cottage.
