  • "Great holiday home for a large family holiday."

    Very well equipped, Beautiful location and views from the house.

  • "The cottage was fantastic, it had everything (double actually (dishwasher, cutleries you name it)), was clean and spacious and with the large garden also very good for the boys to play in."

    We really had nothing to wish for, even the weather was very agreeable, so it was a very pleasant stay all in all. Really great that you can walk out onto the coastal path at the back, amazing views there!

  • "Postponed three times in the last two years because of Covid we were so pleased to actually get here and to find the house and the location was even better than we had been imagining."

    Perfect for our group of 6 adults and 3 children and we thought it the best holiday house we had stayed in. A special thank you to the owners for the lovely meal put in the fridge for our arrival.

  • "We enjoyed our stay at the cottage."

    Great position and amazing views. Very comfortable interior which would be very flexible for larger groups. We have only marked it down on cleanliness because the fridge shelves in the main fridge evidently hadn’t been cleaned and there was a sticky residue on one of the kitchen sides. Everything else was great

  • "This property was just perfect for us to stay in."

    There was so much space that even with 7 of us at one point we didn’t feel in each other’s way. The garden was fantastic to sit out and eat in and for the children to run around and be children in. The house was very well equipped. Would definitely recommend/ return to. Very sad to be leaving and wished we’d booked two weeks!

  • "The house was excellent and superbly furnished and equipped."

    We had a minor problem with the barbecue which was swiftly resolved by the concierge, caretaker and owner. We are in our sixties and have rented at least one property each year for around 50 years but this one was the best. All of the group, us wrinklies , our daughter and her husband and our two young granddaughters all thought the property and facilities were outstanding. It helped that the weather was fabulous.

  • "Landcombe Cottage gave us the most wonderful of holidays."

    The house is probably the best holiday house my family have ever stayed in - from its location, its comfort, its views, its garden, and how everything has been so well thought through. The 2 dishwashers were such a treat! It was so well kitted out and the space was big enough for the family to really enjoy (from a baby, to young children, to grandparents). We found the beds beyond comfortable (and what a view to wake up to every morning) and the bathroom layout was just superb (not to mention the amazing shower). Thank you so much for everything. Our only slight disappointment was the wifi as it seemed to come and go (ordinarily not an issue but some of our group were meant to be doing some work whilst away). However, this will not deter us - we very much hope to come again another year as it really was one of the best holidays; thank you!

  • "A great location to stay."

    The house was very comfortable and spacious, well equipped, and it had an uplifting sea view. Fantastic to open your bedroom curtains to see it every morning. The owners left a welcome hamper, which was kind and much appreciated. The village shop was well stocked, sold local produce, and the owner was very friendly and helpful in giving us local information. Great walks, and the bus served places of interests to save on driving and giving the drivers amongst us the opportunity to take in the stunning countryside. Recommended.

  • "The house was gorgeous!"

    Spacious and ideal for a family or large group. The kitchen and dining area were perfect for a large number of guests. 2 dishwashers and 4 washing machines - we were spoilt! The views of the garden and sea were beautiful and the surrounding countryside and coastal areas were stunning. We could walk the coastal path from our garden and one afternoon, we walked to Blackpool Sands which is a very pretty beach. Dartmouth is 10 minutes away - a very pretty coastal resort. Lots to see and do - the Rare Breeds Farm is highly recommended too.

  • "Wonderful house, perfectly situated along the coastal road for little outings by car (Totnes, Dartmouth, Start Point Light House), or hike part of the coastal path."

    Or you can just stay at home and enjoy the view from the lawn and meadows towards the ocean. Everything in the house is of good quality and very clean, there's plenty of kitchen utensils, crockery and cutlery. Thank you to the owners and the caretakers for having the house is such a condition and sharing it with us!

  • "Landcombe Cottage is a lovely house in a very beautiful location."

    It would be a magical place in a good summer, and I did wonder how it would work in December. However, we found it most delightfully decorated for Christmas - even a small complimentary Christmas cake! - and once the building had warmed up a bit, we all enjoyed being there. The house itself is extremely well equipped and the village warm and welcoming - we received great kindness from both the shop and the pub. The owner does not live locally but was very friendly and helpful on the phone, and the local managers/caretakers could not have been more helpful.

  • "The loveliest cottage in the most beautiful location!"

    It’s large sunny garden overlooked the sea with breath taking views. I could sit and gaze for hours. The rooms were lovely clean and bright with some quirky artwork! We could walk to many of the beaches, great local pub restaurant and shop. The kitchen was the most well stocked in terms of equipment I have ever seen. The perfect location for exploring Dartmouth and Salcombe and much more. Precious memories with the family. Anyone who can fault this place, I would suggest the issue must be you!!!

The property

This big detached house is situated on the coast near the heart of Strete.

With spectacular views of the coast from all windows which face south and comfortable large rooms, it is a sunny and welcoming house for families all year round.

From the hall, head through to the dining room where you can enjoy meals gazing at the view from the big picture window.

You have the luxury of three more lovely rooms for relaxing in: the sitting room, the family room which is great for watching TV and the sun lounge.

At the end of the day take two staircases up to the comfortable bedrooms rambling over the two upper floors.

At the back of the house you can run, play or stretch out in the sun in the big enclosed garden at the back of the house.

This is a charming outdoor spot, with a barbecue for enjoying al fresco family meals on the terrace and a gate to a field from which you can join the South West Coast Path, fabulous for both serious walkers and a relaxing evening sunset stroll.

The Path leads to a shingle beach and to a wonderful 'secret' cove, or you can head to picture-perfect Blackpool Sands and the impressive huge crescent of Slapton Sands, making Landcombe Cottage an ideal destination for exploring the magnificent South Hams coastline.

For town delights, the historic town of Dartmouth has plenty to offer, from shops and restaurants to fun and interesting trips on the river and the steam railway.

Landcombe Cottage is a fabulous place for a memorable coastal break for all the family.

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.
