  • “We would have liked to buy that property to stay in, it was so perfect.”

    Great location for the local beaches, great for Plymouth. The listing didn't even show the BBQ seating area that we had most of our breakfasts and evening meals in. We have enjoyed both our stays this year booked through Sykes Cottages, but this was something else. Would like to book this one for next year if we could get the same price etc

About the property

Boasting an enviable position within the rolling countryside of the South Hams district of Devon is Higher Coombe, an exceptional self-catering accommodation, surrounded by lush fields and plenty of walking opportunities.

With its peaceful location on a no-through lane, this is a rare find for groups of families, friends, avid ramblers and beachcombers seeking a special place to call home as they enjoy both the coast and countryside of South Devon.

Enter the whitewashed property via the spacious porch, featuring space to hang coats and store any muddy walking boots before being welcomed into the open-plan living room, where there is a seamless blend of character and charm with contemporary furnishings and modern conveniences to ensure a comfortable stay.

The exposed original timer beams are a striking element to the room; another being the cosy open fire, sitting within the original brick-built fireplace, which is accompanied by a large dining table, where you can look forward to enjoying the company of your loved ones whilst tucking into a home-cooked dish or a fish supper from the local fish and chip shop.

From here, you will discover a snug sitting area, where a plush seating arrangement invites you to kick back and relax in front of the second open fire, whilst the chef of the group makes use of the quality appliances within the adjoining kitchen.

In here, the beautiful tiled floor lies beneath the sleek grey units with impressive quartz worktops and a range of appliances are on hand to assist you in cooking up a storm, with the focal point of the room being the central island unit.

During the summer evenings, open up the patio doors to allow a fresh breeze to filter into the space before stepping out onto the stone patio to sit beneath the sunshine as something tasty sizzles on the barbecue.

Return into the property and cross the solid oak floor to discover a separate sitting room, where you can look forward to lighting up the woodburning stove to set a tranquil ambiance as you tune into the TV with Netflix to catch up on the latest box set.

Continuing to impress is the master suite on the first floor, a relaxing and welcoming space with exposed apex beams framing the king-size bed and houses its own vanity unit and large wardrobes to store your belongings.

Step into the impressive en-suite and savour a moment of relaxation in the bathtub or open up the patio doors to take a seat on the decked area to enjoy the sun setting before catching your rest.

Sleep is sure to come easy in the other two bedrooms, boasting a king-size bed and a double bed with quality linens draping across and are served by a spacious shower room and a separate cloakroom.

At Higher Coombe, the garden been designed to be an extension of the house itself, where you can spend sunny afternoons on the decked area and listen to the soundtrack of water flowing through the small feature, whilst enjoying the company of your loved ones.

Younger guests of the group will be delighted by the large lawn areas, whilst you can dip into the warmth of the hot tub, which enjoys views across the garden and towards to valley, adding a sense of luxury to this already fabulous holiday.

If you can tear yourself away from this exceptional base, stroll into the village centre of Brixton, where you will find a small shop, a good pub, a restaurant, a fish and chip shop, as well as access to some picturesque walks, in particular along the Erme-Plym Trail following the beautiful estuary and Cofflete Creek.

Alternatively, find even more amenities within the city of Plymouth, as well as array of attractions to suit all ages and tastes, including a stroll along the picturesque harbour, visiting the National Marine Aquarium and the Royal Citadel or simply enjoying a spot of retail therapy.

In this South Hams area, you are truly spoilt for choice by the number of beaches that await you, including Bovisand Beach, Wembury Beach, Cellar Beach and Mothecombe Beach, each one resting within striking distance of the cottage and situated on the iconic South West Coastal Path for the aid ramblers amongst us.

Further walking opportunities can be enjoyed within the nearby Dartmoor National Park or you could perhaps soak up the scenery further by hopping on board the South Devon Railway, a charming steam train taking you through the valley.

The charming towns of Modbury, Salcombe and Kingsbridge are all close by and offer their own attractions, promising wonderful days out, as is the National Trust property of Cotehele, a Tudor-style mansion with overlooking views across the River Tamar.

Bring your loved ones to Higher Coombe to share a holiday that will see your retuning year after year.
