    “Excellent cottage, clean, everything working & in good condition.”

    We felt very comfortable there for our holiday. Even on our one very wet day we occupied ourselves with the books, games & a jigsaw ( there was a good choice of everything).

    We felt very comfortable there for our holiday. Even on our one very wet day we occupied ourselves with the books, games & a jigsaw ( there was a good choice of everything). Parking at the front of the cottage was fine and close to the entrance door. veiws of the sheep with their lambs, and the countryside from the windows were beautiful. Our only concern was the location, theoretically ideal for access to the south coast, Dartmouth, Plymouth & Totnes areas, but rather alarming to an unconfident driver. The very narrow country lanes, off in every direction from the cottage, meant quite a few miles travelled before any wider road was reached. Hence we restricted travelling to & from the cottage to once a day, ensured we were back before it went dark & were grateful we only had a small car..The owner was very kind, she left us wine, crisps, milk & teabags to start us off & some freshly laid eggs to take home, which were delicious.

    Thank you for your lovely comments and I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay. We are centrally located in the South Hams and I find that it takes me around twenty minutes to get to Salcombe, Dartmouth and Totnes and around ten minutes to Kingsbridge. Devon lanes are well known for being narrow and the hedgerows look very beautiful in the Spring, although some can be challenging if the driver is not used to them. The main routes around us though are not too bad (in my opinion). But there are some very narrow lanes nearby that I would not recommend to visitors. In the notes I leave for guests I offer to give directions to places, and in doing so I would avoid sending you down the very narrow lanes. Sat Navs are notorious for sending people the quickest way, which might not be the best way for less confident drivers. Such a shame that you didn't ask me to recommend any routes. Nevertheless I am really glad that you had a lovely week. Property Owner

The property

Kingsbridge 4 miles.

Little Piccadilly can be found nestling in the peaceful little hamlet of Coles Cross, surrounded by glorious countryside, with the Devon coast a short 10 minute drive away.

A delightful stone cottage attached to the owner’s main residence, this makes a wonderful, contemporary base for coastal and country walks, or lazy days on the beach.

The open-plan interior is bright and airy with timber beams and offers an inviting and comfortable space for relaxation in the evenings.

The kitchen is equipped with everything you could need, whilst the dining area provides space for enjoying a hearty breakfast whilst planning the day's events.

A double bedroom and a single bedroom, equipped with a truckle bed that pulls out to a full size single bed, are both well furnished with plenty of storage.

There is a well fitted shower room.

Outside there is a pleasant garden with garden furniture to sit and enjoy.

Please note there is a pond in the grounds.

This South Devon AONB has so much to offer.

Explore the coast, the magnificent crescent of Slapton Sands and the nature reserve of Slapton Ley a short drive.

The beautiful sheltered beach of Blackpool Sands provides plenty of water sports opportunities with a great café overlooking the beach.

The maritime town of Dartmouth and soft sandy beaches of Salcombe are both within easy reach and the interesting river town of Totnes and the market town of Kingsbridge offer supermarkets, cafes and award winning restaurants.

Little Piccadilly is an excellent base for exploring this idyllic region of South Devon.

About the location

KINGSBRIDGE

Salcombe 5 miles; Bantham 5 miles; Dartmouth 12 miles; Totnes 13 miles; Plymouth 20 miles.

The busy little town of Kingsbridge lies at the head of a marine estuary in the attractive South Hams area of South Devon. Kingsbridge is home to a range of lovely independent shops and coffee shops, as well as a 3-screen cinema and an award-winning pub. During the summer season there are estuary excursions by ferry to Salcombe which lies on the banks of the Kingsbridge Estuary, making it one of the prettiest towns in South Devon. Salcombe is famous for its outstanding coastal views, rolling countryside, and is a watersports paradise for kayaking, surfing, paddle boarding and powerboating. It is packed with boutique shops, high street brands and independent producers, restaurants serving freshly caught seafood, and Salcombe Gin and Ice cream! Kingsbridge is perfectly located as a base to enjoy the abundant wildlife in this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), which also forms part of the South Devon Heritage Coast. Visitors can take a walk along the Kingsbridge Quay, wander through the narrow alleys off Fore Street or visit the Shambles in Totnes, an Elizabethan market arcade. Around the South Hams area there are picturesque ports, such as Dartmouth and Salcombe, together with sandy beaches at Blackpool Sands near Stoke Fleming and the two sandy beaches at Thurlestone. There are a host of small attractive villages in South Hams offering interesting pubs, local farm produce shops and pretty rows of cottages, plus further afield the waterfront city of Plymouth is a vibrant centre, housing the National Marine Aquarium, historic Barbican Quay and plenty of night life, including theatres, restaurants and bars. Kingsbridge can be easily reached by train to Totnes and then a local bus service which will take you to Kingsbridge town centre.

Although this is a pet free property the owner has her own dog next door
There is a sofa bed in the living area for alternative sleeping only. The house will still only accept 4 people.
