The property

This characterful Grade II listed cottage lies in the heart of Strete, a coastal village in the South Hams; overlooking the sea and surrounded by hills and countryside.

Perfectly suited for couples or friends, Glen Cottage is a wonderful retreat to visit, with sea views reaching across to the delightful Dartmouth.

A wooden porch leads through to a large, beautifully finished day room with a stone wall to the left and a flagstone floor.

This room extends to the living room which features a large woodburner, with a window seat to the front, bringing you closer to the clear waters which become more noticeable as the clouds pass by.

You will also discover a cloakroom, and a neighbouring utility area located on the ground floor.

The kitchen is beautifully presented with traditional features, a lovely light and airy room with parquet flooring, a small woodburner sits in the corner.

There are patio doors to the rear so you can take in the pleasant outlook from the comfort of the accommodation, or open up the glass doors to experience the tiered garden first hand.

Upstairs, two double bedrooms are soothingly finished, tied together with storage space and natural sea views.

The luxury bathroom is home to a freestanding bath, an all-white suite, designed to a high standard, looking out over the lovely garden.

The terraced garden is the perfect place to absorb the glorious sea and countryside, with its dog walking field beyond.

In the village, take some time to appreciate the beautiful church plus the well-renowned Laughing Monk restaurant and it’s newly refurbished pub, The Kings Arms.

There is a small village green immediately accessed from the rear garden where you can picnic, with its wildlife section and backdrop of Start Bay.

The magical crescent-shaped family beach at Blackpool Sands is only a mile away and the South West Coast path on the doorstep.

A holiday cottage not to be missed.

About the location

STRETE

Dartmouth 4.8 miles

Strete is a village looking over Start Bay just south of Dartmouth. The hills and countryside that encircle the village to the west converge on the memorable coastline forming one of the most visually striking images in the South Hams. There is a post office and general store in the village along with a lovely church plus the well renowned Laughing Monk restaurant. There is a small community area where you can picnic and walk your dog with its wildlife section and notable views of Start Bay. A few short miles in either direction brings you to the magical crescent shaped family beach at Blackpool Sands and the three mile stretch of Slapton Sands. Dartmouth lies on the banks of the beautiful River Dart estuary in the popular and picturesque South Hams area of South Devon. Located within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and close to the coast, Dartmouth is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Devon.
