The property

This fully furnished thatched cottage can be found in the village of Abbotskerswell in South Devon.

Perfect for celebrating those special occasions or simply for a family catch up, Church Thatch is perfectly placed for enjoying the Dartmoor National Park and the south west coastline.

Set across three floors, the cottage has been thoughtfully renovated throughout with several traditional touches, such as the limestone flooring and original oak doors.

Choose to relax in the sitting room beside the cast iron wood burner within the inglenook fireplace, or head to the snug for an evening of entertainment with a flatscreen TV and Xbox 360.

The magnificent kitchen hosts a variety of appliances to utilise, including the gas fired 4-oven shiny AGA cooker, which is sure to come in handy for those great, big family feasts.

After a game of football on the floodlight astro turf mini football pitch or just a glass of wine on the south facing patio, it’s time for bed in one of the four tastefully furnished bedrooms on the first floor.

There is also a stunning medieval style family bedroom on second floor, boasting a 4ft double and single bed, plus a modern en-suite shower room.

The town of Newton Abbot is close by and is home to a large range of shops and restaurants, while further afield Torquay is worth visiting with its stunning beaches and UNESCO recognised Global Geopark.

While here, be sure to explore the picturesque Dartmoor National Park which is sure to be loved by those outdoor enthusiasts of the group!

Wherever you choose to visit, return to Church Thatch for an evening of relaxation and rejuvenation.

For that extra special treat why not book a two night Prosecco & Pamper Weekend.

For any short break booked in-between October and March pay an additional £600 and receive the following: Prosecco and Cream Tea on arrival, two course meal with a drink at the nearby Court Farm Inn, and a 25 minute beauty treatment of either a mini manicure/pedicure or a massage in the comfort of Church Thatch.
