The property

The Gallery is has been converted by an excellent architect into a peaceful reverse level cottage.

As soon as you head up the steps and through the door, you will be struck by the stylish décor with original paintings and great views of the surrounding countryside.

The living area has been sited on the top floor for those vistas, with a cosy wood burning stove for snug evenings beside the fire.

Next door is the big kitchen where you can prepare glorious meals.

Head down the steps through the glazed doors into the garden.

You will find two bedrooms on the ground floor, both en-suite and light and airy.

Outside, as well as the big shared open space, you have your own secluded enclosed garden where you can sit and eat out beside the meadows.

The Gallery is a lovely retreat all year round.

Note: The Gallery can be booked with The Barn, The Pottery and The Music room and together they can sleep 14.

Chantry Cottages

A mile from Aveton Gifford, 300 yards down a tree-lined track off a lane, four very special places to stay within handsome former farm buildings: an airy converted barn (976186), a barn converted into a gallery (976176) overlooking meadows, a remarkable Grade II listed former music room (976188), and the orginal hayloft The Pottery (976170). A large, pretty, enclosed suntrap courtyard is shared with the friendly owners. Just outside the courtyard, a lawned walled garden (also enclosed) with camellias, fig and walnut trees, leading to another garden with a pond (unfenced) and six grassy acres with a big wildlife pond (fenced), vast lawn for picnics and croquet, a picnic table, benches with intense views and big trees to sit under. Relax, read or just enjoy the silence and let your mind wander. Bright and airy in the summer or cosy as a winter retreat, with wonderful walks from the door and beaches within easy reach. Aveton Gifford: old village (pub, PO/shop) beside the River Avon where it becomes tidal. Within 5 or 6 miles are several villages: Bigbury, Bantham and Thurlestone on an excellent and varied stretch of coast: sandy beaches, coves, cliffs, golf courses, the Avon estuary. The Chantry Cottages are a lovely base for checking out the delights of South Devon's coast and countryside, allowing you to surf, walk, check out rock pools, play golf and make sandcastles to your hearts content. A peaceful, curative oasis, good for taking it easy. Kingsbridge, 4 miles.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £100.

    “We loved out cottage.”

    The interior was so well designed by the owner’s architect father. The owners Jo and Nick are delightful and gave us any help we needed. The property is very pretty with very nice gardens and good walks through the farm and surrounds. We will definitely come back again.
