High in farmland a mile from the pretty village of Noss Mayo and ½ mile from the sea at Stoke with its splendid cliffs, Coast Path and cove beach is Furnivals Quail; a spacious, three-storey, Grade II listed 'upside down' cottage, sitting mid-row and looking over the shared inner courtyard.
Inside is smart and unfussy with with neutral colours and painted beams to give a light and lofty feel.
There are three ground-floor bedrooms – a double and two neat single rooms.
On the first floor the open-plan living/dining area has a fitted kitchen with a table and chairs, ideal for gathering together and comfy sofas.
At the top of the house, on the second floor is the enormous master bedroom suite with a king size bed, additional day bed and an en suite bathroom.
Outside is a 1½ acre shared garden with a barbecue and picnic table, and a games/laundry room with table tennis, darts, washing machine, tumble drier - (extra charge), courtyards and hard tennis court so you'll never want for something to entertain.
Further afield, don your walking boots and take the low tide footpath across the creek, head into unspoiled National Trust woodland or along the cliff top Coast Path.
For the more adventurous, why not try your hand at wakeboarding or paddleboarding, play tennis or go horse riding.
And of course for sand and surf you are spoiled for choice with lovely beaches all around the South Hams.
Furnivals Quail is the perfect spot for exploring this idyllic part of Devon.
