This beautiful Grade II listed cottage converted from a 19th century coach house is located above the A379, half a mile from the centre of Strete and between Slapton and Dartmouth.
Exceptionally well refurbished by an experienced designer, it is romantic and elegant accommodation on a stunning coastline.
From the front door, head upstairs to the open plan living space, all light and calm with natural fabrics and views to Start Point and the River Dart estuary.
The seating area is cosy with a wood burning stove, a lovely place to sit and chat to the cook in the gently curving kitchen area.
The two comfortable bedrooms are downstairs, each individually designed.
You can enjoy the same fabulous views from the garden, which is good sized and enclosed and has a lawn for sunbathing and a patio where you can eat outdoor meals.
Stroll down into Strete to eat out at the restaurant or head into Dartmouth for a choice of seafood eateries and a cinema and trips on boats and the steam railway.
Whether you are a serious hiker or a stroller, the coastal vistas along the South West Coast Path are not to be missed, with blue and golden Blackpool Sands, a secret cove and the crescent of beach and nature reserve at Slapton Sands.
Coach House Cottage is a very special place to stay.
Two ground floor bedrooms: 1 x double, 1 x single. Bathroom with bath, separate shower, WC, basin. Utility room. First floor open plan living space with seating area with wood burning stove, dining area and kitchen.
About the location
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.
