  • “Beautiful, comfortable and extremely well equipped house, with plenty of room for a large party.”

    Extremely helpful and friendly staff in reception, willing to resolve any problems. Very peaceful surroundings, but quite a long way from anywhere, you definitely need a car. Bed linen was not fresh in two of the bedrooms, and had to be changed. Sofa dirty and carpets in bedrooms needed a clean. Aside from this, we would all return here for another holiday.

The property

Blackawton 1.8 miles.

3 The Drive is an exceptional five-bedroomed detached house, recently constructed to a high specification, overlooking local woodland and the beautiful South Hams countryside.

Designed to provide luxurious, stylish and very tastefully furnished accommodation for up to ten guests, the property boasts a good-sized terrace and garden.

The stunning 35-foot open-plan living/dining room features a woodburning stove, TV with Sky, and ample seating, plus a large wooden dining table, as well as bi-folding glass doors that open out to the terrace and garden where you can enjoy a spot of alfresco dining.

The elegantly hand crafted kitchen has beautiful units topped with Silestone and is equipped mostly with Siemens appliances, whilst the utility room has a Belfast sink, washing machine and tumble dryer.

Also on the ground floor is a handy shower room for your convenience.

Retire to one of the five bedrooms when you’re ready to call it a night, finding two superb super-king-size bedrooms with zip/link features and en-suite shower rooms on the first floor, along with a twin bedroom with a large TV with Sky, and an en-suite/adjacent shower room.

There are two further bedrooms on the second floor, boasting king-size beds, served by a gorgeous family bathroom with a freestanding bath and a walk-in shower.

With additional gardens and plenty of parking, the house also benefits from the use of the beautifully maintained grounds and facilities of Hillfield Village, including an all-weather tennis court and children's play area to explore.

This property rests in the village of Hillfield, a tranquil South Devon settlement, just a short distance from Blackawton, home to a local shop and a welcoming pub, ideal for your self-catering needs, as well as a lovely night away from the kitchen at the George Inn pub.

Delight in the choice of family-friendly attractions nearby, including the Woodlands Family Theme Park, Torquay's Dinosaur World, Paignton Zoo Environmental Park and Go Ape Haldon, perfect for kids of all ages, even adults!

A mere stone’s throw away is the bustling town of Dartmouth where you’ll find a great selection of shopping options, delicious restaurants, fun pubs, and so many amenities.

It’s also a great place to discover rich history at the 15th century castle, the Royal Avenue Gardens, Dartmouth Museum, Coronation Park, and the historic Bayard's Cove Fort.

Head out for a day of adventure as you ramble next to the babbling River Avon, seeing picturesque sights throughout the Dartmoor National Park and over to the South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, or visit seaside attractions along the South West Coast Path.

With so much space to relax together as a group, 3 The Drive is the perfect accommodation for a large gathering of friends or family in South Devon.

About the location

DARTMOUTH

Totnes 12 miles.

Dartmouth lies on the banks of the beautiful River Dart estuary in the popular and picturesque South Hams area of South Devon. Located within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and close to the coast, Dartmouth is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Devon. It offers a stunning waterfront, ancient narrow streets lined with boutique shops, restaurants and art galleries plus many local events such as the annual Dart Music Festival and the Port of Dartmouth Royal Regatta, along with the Dartmouth Food Festival held every October. There are many interesting cycling and walking routes around Dartmouth, including the South West Coast Path, the Dart Valley Trail and plenty of quiet country lanes. A trip on the Dartmouth Steam Railway through picturesque countryside to Paignton is a must, and so is a boat trip across to Kingswear and on to Brixham, a pretty little harbour town. For those seeking some beach activities, there is a wide choice in the South Hams area such as Blue Flag Award winner Blackpool Sands, and Slapton Sands, both extremely popular and just a stone's throw from Dartmouth. A relaxing location in South Devon.

Plans are being produced to redevelop the previous swimming pool area during 2021, replacing it with an outdoor recreation area available for all year round use. We will provide further details when available.

The children’s play area has been newly redeveloped to include new climbing frame, slide and swings.

The ongoing construction of eight 3-bedroom properties on site is ongoing. Further redevelopment is planned to commence during the autumn/winter. During the periods of property development Hillfield Village will continue to operate with as little disruption as possible, with continued access to the tennis court & play area. Please contact the Coast & Country Cottages office for further details on how the above may affect your specific accommodation.

All guests can exclusively enjoy green fees, swimming pool, leisure and gym facilities (subject to availability) at the nearby Dartmouth Golf and Country Club at Members Guest Rates, plus 10% off all spa treatments and 10% off all food and beverages in the Clubhouse Bar and Restaurant. Golf MUST be booked in advance via the Hillfield Village Reception. Any golf booked directly with the Pro Shop will not include the Members Guest Rate discount.

Due to the Health and Safety policy, any use of barbecues is strictly prohibited at Hillfield Village.
