  • Diana

    “Lovely well equipped cottage in beautiful surroundings and conveniently situated for all the nearby beaches, Kingsbridge and Salcombe.”

    Great to come straight out of the house and onto a dog walk, as it's so dog friendly it would have been good to have a dog secure garden with the addition of some chicken wire and some sort of temprorary closure under the arch so the dogs could be outside with us on the terrace without wandering off. A young family might need somewhere to dry clothes on a week's holiday.

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.
