You won't be short of things to do with a stay at this South Devon cottage set on a country estate. Expect a shared indoor swimming pool, gym, tennis court, a kid's playground, and so the list goes on. If you don't feel like being sociable, there's a private courtyard back at home for summer months and a wood-burning fire to hunker down beside in winter. Set in a small, secluded valley, you'll need a car to get out and about here. But we don't think you'll mind, with South Hams and Bantham Beach both just a short drive away.

Today’s residents are a well-heeled bunch, and in the summer months, you’ll find an equally upscale visiting crowd.
