    “We had a wonderful week in Meavy Cottage.”

    It is clean, bright and well appointed with quality furnishings and appliances. All essentials, such as dishwasher tablets, were provided. The Gitcombe estate is in a beautiful setting and is extremely well maintained. The owner, Peter, lives on site and nothing is too much trouble. He was a friendly point of contact at all times. We particularly enjoyed the outdoor pool, which was kept open during good weather in early September.

Gitcombe Estate Cottages

Resting within the beautiful Devonshire countryside on the outskirts of the village of Cornworthy, sits this magnificent collection of nine luxury properties known as the Gitcombe Estate. With accommodation to suit all tastes, requirements and party sizes, properties range from a Grade II listed manor house, to a newly built stylish timber framed property designed by award-winning architects. Cleverly combining contemporary touches, like Bose iPod docking stations, with more traditional features including oak beams and wood burning stoves, the properties present a winning combination for visitors of all ages. Relax in the delightfully furnished living accommodation, cook in the stylish kitchens, or unwind in the spacious 14 acres of the estate. The holiday homes vary in style and sleep between four and 13 guests. On sunny summer days, enjoy an alfresco breakfast or barbecue lunch in your garden. For young party members, the hand-carved children’s adventure playground is the perfect place to for them to burn off any extra energy, whilst for older children and adults in the group, the tennis court is a fabulous spot for a friendly tournament! This impressive complex also has both indoor and outdoor heated swimming pools meaning you can enjoy a leisurely swim, whatever the weather. Relax in the hot tub, sauna or steam room - or simply sit back and watch as the children have fun in the fantastic indoor soft play area. When you want to venture out from this idyllic haven to experience the delights of South Devon, there is a plethora of fun activities and stunning locations just waiting to be explored. For spectacular beaches, head to Blackpool Sands just three-miles west of Dartmouth, or visit popular Salcombe and enjoy its numerous sandy coves. If you are searching for all-weather family attractions, nearby Woodlands Leisure Park and Pennywell Farm (around a 45 minute drive), both offer fantastic days out for those with young children. The incredible Paignton Zoo is also within easy driving distance, home to an exotic variety of animals including lions, tigers, gorillas, and even crocodiles… an entertaining day out no matter your age! For foodies South Devon is home to some of the finest eateries and food producers in the country. Visit the artisan wine and cheese makers at Sharpham Vineyard, or dine in one of the excellent, critically acclaimed restaurants in the region – for example the Seahorse in Dartmouth, where you can enjoy some of the finest fish and shellfish freshly caught along the South Devon coastline. For history buffs, visit the historic Buckfast Abbey which sits along the River Dart, explore Dartmouth Castle perched atop the entrance to the Dart estuary, or experience Dartmouth’s guided Mayflower 400 tour, and learn more about the town’s vibrant past first hand. However, you choose to enjoy your time in South Devon, choose one of the impressive Gitcombe Estate holiday homes for the perfect base from which to explore this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.

About the location


Totnes 4.4 miles

Cornworthy is a picturesque village in the sought-after South Hams area of Devon that dates back to Saxon times. Much of the village makes up part of an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The coastal towns of Dittisham and Dartmouth are nearby and provide excellent opportunities for marine activities and some of the UKs best seafood restaurants (such as The Seahorse). Totnes is also a short drive away, an attractive, vibrant town, which also includes a railway station that provides direct services to London Paddington in under three hours. For shopping addicts Totnes offers an excellent range of small independent retailers and unique shops. The town is famed for its promotion of ethical products, wholefoods and fair trade goods. In the Civil Hall Square you’ll find the weekly market which is held on Fridays and Saturdays. And an Elizabethan market held each Tuesday morning (May-September), when traders dress in Elizabethan period costumes and the Totnes Sunday Good Food Market.
