    “The cottage was very clean and comfortable.”

    Great location for walking. Friendly owners. It was a peaceful area too. As dog owners, the access to the outside space wasn't ideal for us, as our spaniel likes exploring! Had to take him on his lead to the cottage's section. (The front door opens onto the owner's driveway area).

The property

In the tiny farming hamlet of Ashford, less than a mile from Aveton Gifford and on a tributary of the River Avon, a pretty cottage converted from a small barn next to the owners house.

Own private gravelled parking area with space for canoes or kayaks and, behind the cottage, a raised south-facing terrace (table/chairs), yours to enjoy.

Inside, light and tastefully decorated in neutral tones with stripped floorboards.

Two steps up to door straight into living/dining room (TV/DVD).

Neat kitchen (microwave, fridge, electric cooker) and, from the kitchen, steps up to two bedrooms - a double (5' bed), and a bunk room (3' beds).

Smart shower-room (suite).

Spring water.

Professional catering and ready meals available.

A welcoming spot in this lovely area for couples or a small family.

Aveton Gifford: old village (pub, PO/shop) beside the River Avon where it becomes tidal.

Within 5 or 6 miles are several villages (Bigbury, Bantham, Thurlestone) on an excellent and varied stretch of coast: sandy beaches, coves, cliffs, golf courses, the Avon estuary (fishing, birds), pretty thatched-cottage village centres.

Kingsbridge, 4 miles.
