    “Beautiful cottage in a lovely location with great views across the fields.”

    Easy walking distance to numerous beaches and coastal walks. Also not far to 2 pubs with good food.

The property

A mile from Down Thomas, quietly tucked away down a private farm drive, a stylish and spacious cottage with beautifully planted, enclosed suntrap garden (table/chairs) behind.

Newly converted from an attached barn on the owners’ small traditional working farm (arable, beef cattle), it was once the dairy and cider farm for Langdon Court estate, a Domesday manor of Wembury.

The original manor is now a country house hotel (bar/restaurant open to non-residents), just a 350 yard stroll away; Wembury Beach and Coast Path, around a mile.

Three shallow steps down to entrance and tiled hall.

Step down to chic country-style kitchen/dining room (dishwasher, microwave, fridge-freezer, electric range-style cooker with 5-ring induction hob) with timber worktops, slate floors, glass-topped feature well and big pine dining table.

Double doors to snug/TV room (smart TV) with huge original pine door to generous living room (woodburner, smart TV/DVD/PVR, iPod dock) with glazed door to drive.

Ground-floor shower-room (suite).

Utility room (washing machine, tumble drier).

Stairs up to landing area (armchairs, glazed doors to garden) and three bedrooms, all beautifully furnished with high ceilings, exposed apex beams and shuttered windows with long views over rolling farmland - two huge doubles (5' oak beds), one with dressing room and en suite bathroom (suite, shower over bath), the other with en suite shower-room (suite), and a twin with en suite shower-room.

Much thought has gone into this superbly converted barn; a great spot for exploring coast, countryside and city with footpaths from the door. Down Thomas: tiny village (PO/shop, pub), a mile from a sandy beach and nearby golf course at Bovisand Bay, and 5 miles south of the centre of Plymouth with its theatre, cinemas, shops, Hoe, Barbican and history.
