The property

This wonderful barn conversion rests in the small hamlet of Fallapit, in the heart of rural Devon countryside.

Set over three floors, and within 3 acres of shared grounds, this cottage is perfect for families and friends looking to explore the South Devon AONB.

Entry is gained down a garden path and into a contemporary style cottage exuding a light and airy feel throughout.

First, the ground floor occupies a superb kitchen, fully fitted with a lovely dining area at which you can eat your family meals.

The woodburner lends a cosy feel in winter, filling the sitting room with an orange glow as you snuggle into plush sofas.

Upstairs the super king-size bedroom rests in the eaves, under exposed beams and with Velux windows streaming in the natural light.

The double room overlooks the pretty garden.

On the lower ground floor, a single and another double follow a light-filled twin room, whilst the modern bathroom boasts an all-white finish.

To the exterior, you will find a leafy courtyard at the rear, with a sunny patio, outdoor games for hours of fun and pretty honeysuckle cascading over the trellis - pure bliss!

Make use of the communal facilities; the lovely grounds comprise a lake, tennis courts, children's play area and fire pit.

The cottage is located just outside the village of East Allington.

The nearest pub is The Fortescue Arms, well-known for its warm welcome and friendly service.

Kingsbridge offers lovely quayside walks and afternoons at the Shambles, an Elizabethan market arcade.

Dartmouth is nestled on the River Dart and offers boat trips, exclusive shops, galleries, many pubs and some famous restaurants.

Enjoy the colourful atmosphere at Totnes and riverside walks in Salcombe, its busy estuary showcases yachts, while its winding streets offer a myriad of interesting shops and pubs.

Spectacular walking and time can be spent exploring the rugged moorland along the South Hams coastal path.

A delightful getaway to be enjoyed the year-round.

The lovely little village of East Allington lies in the South Hams district of South Devon. Engulfed by stunning countryside and situated just a little way off the beaten track, this village is home of one of the region’s most popular pubs, and provides enticing rural walks from each direction. The Fortescue Arms is well-known for its warm welcome and good service. Visitors can bring their dog along and sit at the bar with a much needed drink, after a venturesome day exploring the local area. The market town of Kingsbridge lies south of East Allington, at the head of a marine estuary. Walk along the Kingsbridge Quay, wander through the narrow alleys or visit the Shambles, an Elizabethan market arcade. During the summer season there are river excursions to Salcombe to see the abundant wildlife in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. This popular destination for walkers and families, offers two pretty beaches, as well as the National Trust property Overbeck’s. Why not have a more adventurous day and try out the watersports available on the estuary including surfing and kayaking or take a long walk along the South West Coast Path? Try the locally sourced seafood served in many of the restaurants, pubs, cafés and delicatessens. Further afield is the waterfront city of Plymouth housing the National Marine Aquarium, Barbican Quay and plenty of night life, including theatres, restaurants and bars. This is a wonderful region waiting to be explored in the heart of Devon.
