  • "What an amazing find."

    This house is so well equipped, comfortable & spacious….everything you need for a relaxing stay. The whole family thoroughly enjoyed it.

  • "Excellent clean facilities, so well equipped, welcoming property in a great location."

    It’s a shame towels, bath mats & tea towels aren’t included at all. A faultless stay and great information provided by the owner beforehand, who went above and beyond.

  • "An exceptionally comfortable well thought out home."

    ..if it isn't there, you don't need it! Beautifully clean and spacious, and the table tennis was an added bonus! So many wonderful beaches within a few miles, Burgh Island, Bantham, Hope Cove and Blackpool Sands being just a few. Totnes is well worth visiting too, with many interesting shops.

  • "The property was great."

    The best kitted out rental I have ever stayed at. Very comfortable and warm. It was superb. The Garage as a games room with table tennis went down very well with our children and grandchildren. The rear garden is very safe and enclosed for dogs. Highly recommended. The village has a very good shop and pub both within a 100 yards. Some great places to visit like Burgh Island and Hope Cove.

  • "The house was beautiful, in a lovely village location and was very comfortable with many amenities."

    Very clean and welcoming. However there was one major problem, in as much as there were no towels supplied. We contacted Sykes, Ref COR 234562-CF, about this issue. Christina said that in the description of the property this was mentioned. I checked the website again to see if we had missed this information. On the details for the property in clearly stated that 'linen and towels are included in the rent'. So unfortunately I think this is an error on Sykes behalf, that landed up costing us £40. We also spoke to the owner, who was incredibly helpful, but confirmed she did not supply towels and had informed the agents, so it is a great shame that this was not reflected on your website and no information was sent to us subsequent to booking. According to the owner there should have been a welcome pack. This too was missing, and although investigated was never supplied.

  • "We were very satisfied with the excellent accommodation, however, one of the reasons for booking this property was for its security."

    We were informed it had electric gates ( and were even given a code for them) On arrival it was obvious that they have been broken for some considerable time and were completely unusable. Hence they had to stay open all the time. Our party consisted of two very young children and this was not what we were expecting. The other problem was the waste facilities. They were completely inadequate for a party of 10.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback. The owners have been contacting each guest in advance to let them know the electric gates have been damaged by the wind and are awaiting repair. They have been left open meanwhile. The rear garden is also gated and is enclosed and this hasn't been compromised by the issue with the front gates. Property Owner

  • "All I can say about Duffield is WOW!"

    Hands down the best holiday cottage I have ever stayed in and I rent one for my family every year. Location is amazing with Bigbury on Sea beach a short drive away and a shop & pub 30 secs walk away! The house itself was outstanding with lots of social space as well as five large double bedrooms! Kitted out with absolutely everything you could possible want including a table tennis table, garden games, two large televisions and very good wi-fi! Brilliant holiday had by all of my brood and somewhere we are definitely considering returning to! Thank you for allowing us to share your amazing home!

  • "This is the loveliest self catering accommodation we have stayed in."

    It is fully kitted out with loads of little extras. Beds are super comfy, the rooms are massive and cosy. It’s actually nicer than the pictures. We had 2 screaming babies in our group but the house is so big it didn’t matter and we couldn’t hear each other! All of the sports equipment in the garage was used. The badminton was set up in the garden all week. Gorgeous garden furniture which was also super comfy. Literally could not say one bad thing about this accommodation. Will definitely return! Thank you!!

The property

Duffield is a modern, well-appointed detached house situated on the edge of the hamlet of St Ann’s Chapel, just three miles from the surf and sandy beaches of Bigbury-on-Sea.

Inside, the property offers comfortable and spacious accommodation, providing the perfect base for a family celebration or a friends’ getaway.

From the spacious hallway there is an elegant sitting room, with comfortable seating around an inset woodburning fireplace; and French windows leading to the terrace and garden beyond.

A large contemporary kitchen, fully equipped with all the necessities required when catering for a large family or party, plus separate dining area that comfortably seats 10 and extends to sit 12.

Off the kitchen, the large utility room is perfect for housing sandy dogs and wet-suits.

In addition, there is a downstairs shower room, basin and WC.

On the first floor, there are three brightly decorated bedrooms; a master bedroom with en-suite shower, plus a further two double bedrooms, all enjoying country views.

Completing the first floor is a large airy family bathroom, with a sunken bath, separate walk-in shower, basin and WC.

Located on the second floor, under the eaves, are two further bedrooms.

A large family bedroom, comprising a king plus two single beds opposite a further double bedroom.

To the rear of the property the enclosed lawn and terrace provide a large table, chairs and parasol, perfect for dining alfresco or stretching out with a good book and a sun-downer.

There is plenty of storage space for surfboards and beach gear, a must being so close to the glorious Devon coastline.

Try out surfing or paddle-boarding at Bigbury; and if you need a little help there's the popular surf school which can assist, offering lessons and/or equipment hire.

For walkers, the South West Coastal Path is perfect, providing miles of scenic clifftop routes to explore, and pubs to recover in.

For those feeling less energetic, a stroll across the beach to iconic Burgh Island, inspiring some of Agatha Christie’s tales, will blow away the cobwebs!

The nearby golf course will challenge all abilities when the sea breeze blows.

The nearby towns of Modbury, Kingsbridge and Salcombe are full of fascinating little independent stores, art galleries and restaurants.

Closer to home (and less than 50 metres from the house) are the charming village shop and pub, The Pickwick Inn.

With all this on your doorstep, Duffield is a fabulous family home in the heart of the South Hams area of Devon.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.

Less than three miles away is Bigbury on Sea a village with a large sandy beach (surf school, cafe) and stretching to Burgh Island (famous art deco hotel, setting for Agatha Christie novels).
