The property

Resting within striking distance of the River Dart, in the picturesque village of Stoke Gabriel, South Hams, is this quaint retreat, Hilltop.

This cottage is set amidst a leafy garden next to the owner’s home, offering a tranquil base for a family seeking to explore all of the delights that this corner of South Devon has to offer.

After soaking up the surrounding views from the garden area, be welcomed into the spacious kitchen, where the designated chef of the group will find all the essentials required to whip a home-cooked breakfast or dinner, including an electric oven, ceramic hob and microwave, in addition to a dishwasher and a washing machine for those longer breaks.

The charm of the property is highlighted within the sitting/dining room, where the large bay window filters in natural light into the space and offers views of the garden to enjoy whilst curled up on the plush sofas.

In here, you can choose to tuck into your home-cooked meals upon the formal dining table or tune into the TV to unwind after an action-packed day.

As the evening draws to a close, venture up the staircase to find two well-presented bedrooms, each boasting a refreshing colour palette, carefully selected furnishing and ample storage to house your holiday essentials.

Here, you will find a spacious double bedroom and a quaint twin bedroom, ensuring a flexible sleeping arrangement to suit the needs of your group.

If you are visiting during the summer months, enjoy a spot of alfresco dining on the front decked area or roam the large lawn area to the rear of the property before heading out for the day.

If you can tear yourself away from this delightful base, a short stroll will bring you to a selection of two pubs for a special treat one evening, whilst The River Shack offers light refreshments for those walking along the River Dart, where you will also find opportunities for crabbing.

Further afield attractions include over 20 beaches which line the Torbay coast with some breath-taking views and opportunities for swimming and diving to be enjoyed.

The nearby market town of Totnes situated in South Hams Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is lined with interesting shops, tea rooms, restaurants and a weekly Elizabethan market, offering local produce and unique finds.

Alternatively, head to the seaside town of Paignton where you will find a zoo or slightly further is Torquay where you will be welcomed by a larger selection of amenities and attractions to suit all ages and tastes.

Hilltop is a refreshing getaway that can be enjoyed at any time of the year.
