One bed cottage close to Dartmoor National Park And South Hams Area Of Devon
Apple Loft Cottage,a converted stone barn is situated down a quiet single track lane just one mile from Buckfastleigh. Set within four acres of land in a valley with the river Dart running along the back of the property, it is surrounded by rolling Devon farmland and is just minutes from Dartmoor National Park.

Apple Loft Cottage, whilst attached to the owners B&B, is very private and has its own patio area but with the added benefit of the 4 acre grounds around it. The cottage consists of a lounge/dining area with an oak beamed ceiling and three windows looking out to the patio area and gardens. The kitchen leads off of the lounge and is well equipped with everything you need to rustle up a delicious meal. The downstairs shower room, whilst compact, is of a contemporary style with shower cubicle and power shower and a wash bowl mounted on a shaker style cabinet. The characterful bedroom is located upstairs under another beamed ceiling with windows on both sides. The cottage is furnished with flair and is of a very high standard and is a mix of antique and contemporary furniture. There is off-road parking for one car in front of the cottage.

The cottage is one mile from the centre of Buckfastleigh which is an easy 10 minuted stroll to the high street. Buckfastleigh has a good selection of amenities including a supermarket that is open daily early to late, a farm shop selling local produce, several pubs, a great family run restaurant, a coffee shop and a traditional tearoom. Locally there are several other farm shops selling high quality local produce including Dean Court Farm shop and Riverford Organics.

There are many great places to eat out within the local area - including The Riverford Field Kitchen, The Cott Inn at Dartington, The Church House Inn at Rattery to name just a few.

Some of the attractions close to the cottage include Buckfast Abbey, the South Devon Railway, the Butterfly farm and otter sanctuary, Riverford Field Kitchen and The Ashburton Cookery School. Dartington Hall Estate is close by with its wonderful gardens and parkland, numerous art based courses and productions ,The Elizabethan town of Totnes is just 6 miles away, and the coastal towns of Dartmouth and Salcombe just 45 minutes by car.

Description of sleeping capacity: Sleeps 2 (1 Bedroom) Notes on bedrooms: On the first floor, the cosy bedroom with vaulted beamed ceiling, has a wrought iron frame king-size bed. There is an antique pine dressing table and a French armoire, two painted side tables, carpet on the floor and pretty linen Roman blinds.
Notes on accommodation:
There is free WiFi in the cottage, TV & DVD player.
The cottage is heated by gas central heating, with radiators in all rooms. In addition, in the lounge there is a contemporary style wall-mounted electric fire which quickly heats up the room on chillier evenings. There is insufficient space for a travel cot or fold-up bed, so the maximum number of guests allowed in the cottage is two, with a minimum age of eight if a child is included in the couple. There is a strict no smoking policy and pets are not allowed without express consent of the owners.

Parking for the cottage is right outside the cottage on a cobbled area by the front door. To the side of the cottage, there is a patio area enclosed by a stone wall with garden table and chairs. This looks down towards a pond and the orchard beyond. The main house sits in about 4 acres of grounds, and guests are welcome to use the main garden belonging to the B&B which consists of a large lawned area with sun loungers and seats, flowers beds, trees and shrubs. You can walk down to the river from the meadow behind the house.
The gardens are quiet and relaxing, with water running down a rill in to the pond. To the back of the house, the South Devon Railway (a tourist attraction) runs from April to October, with steam trains tooting as they pass.

Utility Room:
There is no utility room but should guests require any items to be laundered, we are happy to do this usually free of charge.

Cleaning / Towels / Linen / Maid service:
Quality towels and bed linen are provided, together with bathrobes. These are changed once a week and the cottage is also cleaned on a weekly basis.

Brilliant location to visit S Devon

By Rupert Brown on 14-Apr-2022

The cottage is tiny but comfortable and very well equipped (excellent kitchen!). Very quiet and yet only a few minutes from the A38. Excellent location for visiting Dartmoor, Totnes and other parts of S Devon. Julia and Martin were very welcoming.

Wonderful Cottage set outside quaint village

By James Budd on 05-Aug-2021

Left on Aug 5, 2021 for a stay in Jun 2021 So much to do nearby the cottage which is in such beautiful grounds, you could spend a whole day in the gardens in the sun! We would recommend having your own vehicle staying here but other than that, I cannot fault the property in any way, we had a perfect stay!
