Shepherds Cottage is a lov;ey old farm workers cottage lovingly modernised to provide an open plan living area. Downstairs, the living area is open plan and has a lounge area at the front, with chestnut wood flooring from trees on the farm and a wood-burning stove. The brand new kitchen is a delight and the original slate floor slabs combined with cream shaker units give a true farmhouse feel, while the extending table can seat 6 with ease. The large utility/shower room at the back of the house has a washer/dryer, large shower, toilet and sink and there is a back door giving access into the private garden. There are plenty of DVDs, games and toys for the children and fixed stairgates at the top and bottom of the stairs. We can provide travel cots and highchairs on request at no extra charge.
Upstairs, the master king-sized bedroom has a washbasin and a large sash window with stunning views over the surrounding fields and woodland. There is also a cosy twin room and another slightly smaller room with full size bunk beds. The family bathroom on this floor has a wonderfully old fashioned, deep bath where you can soak away your cares... or just soak your tired and sandy children after a day spent rock pooling on the beach.
The back door leads out into a sunny, secure garden with a patio, garden furniture, barbecue, washing line and fully stocked log shed. There is a gate through to our lovely wildflower meadow and children's play area - complete with tractor!
Explore the nearby picturesque towns of Kingsbridge, Dartmouth and Salcombe or visit the historic port of Plymouth. Why not visit out of season and cosy down by a roaring log fire - short breaks available all year.
We put fresh local organic milk in each cottage for guests on arrival. Carswell is also the birthplace of the Well Hung Meat Company so our visitors can taste award winning local organic lamb and beef.
Well behaved dogs are very welcome.
