The property

Merrybank is a one-of-a-kind holiday property in Devon's pristine and slow paced village of Stoke Gabriel, near the River Dart and provides ideal accommodation for those looking for rest and relaxation.

Merrybank is great for both families and groups, since it is close to amenities to help with your self-catered stay and has a creative décor to while away the hours.

When you arrive, you'll be greeted with a private driveway, and you can leave your shoes and outerwear on the porch before exploring the living rooms.

The large sitting room is lush with plants and has plenty of seating, allowing you to read on the window seat or relax on the sofa in front of the TV.

As you walk through the house, look for the hand-crafted kitchen/diner, where you can prepare home-cooked meals and dine together at the table.

After a long day of activities, use the washing machine to freshen up your garments, which can then be dried in the backyard.

Sip cold beverages on the bench in the sun or dine al fresco amongst the summer wild flowers, then head to the ground-floor shower room for a quick wash in the Mediterranean-style shower when the evening cools.

When it's time to sleep, the little ones will like the triple cabin bed bedroom on the first level, while the adults will enjoy the four poster bed on the ground floor.

The garden cabin has a studio-style layout with a double bed, a well-equipped kitchen, eating space, and a sitting room where you can watch TV shows.

Explore the historic village of Stoke Gabriel and take a stroll through the orchard to walk along the shore of the millpond to grab a coffee at the River Shack and admire the views across the river.

Or take a 10 minute drive to attractions such as Paignton Zoo Environmental Park, Berry Pomeroy Castle, and Clennon Gorge, to get a greater sense of your surroundings.

The Castle Inn Stoke Gabriel is one of the many restaurants and taverns in the area.

Visit Brixham, where Brixham Harbour is a hive of activity and Brixham Breakwater is a terrific site to take in the breathtaking views.

The town also has a number of eateries, including The Curious Kitchen, which is a great location to unwind and breathe in the sea breeze.

The National Trust properties of Coleton Fishacre and Greenway provide attractive gardens and paths to explore, keeping visitors occupied in the community of Kingswear.

Dartmouth Boat Hire is ideal for people seeking for a more active holiday, as it allows them to get out on the water and take in the breathtaking surroundings.

Merrybank is the place to go if you're looking for a unique property.
