    “Thank you for the use of your lovely cottage.”

    We found everything that we needed and more. The bed was very comfy and the shower a dream. The sofa a bit uncomfortable, however Gwen says a new one is coming soon. The old barn next door has changed rather!! We were so lucky with the weather and did loads of walking and exploring the area. We didn't want to leave on Saturday. Thanks again. Ann

The property

On the edge of Down Thomas, looking over meadows, a semi-detached, early Victorian cottage, one of five forming a courtyard at the back.

Small front sitting area (table/chairs) and pathway (20 yards) to own lawned garden (barbecue). Inside, light and comfy.

Six steps up to porch and front door.

Living/dining/kitchen (dishwasher, washing machine, microwave, fridge-freezer, electric cooker) with slate floor, central work island/breakfast bar, gas 'living flame' fire, TV/DVD and iPod dock.

White-tiled and chrome bathroom (suite, shower over shorter than average bath).

Upstairs, three bedrooms (shuttered windows, limited clothes hanging/storage space) - a double (5' bed), another double, and a single.

Shower-room (suite).

A good situation for both town and country, with good beaches and scenic Coast Path walks nearby. 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.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £100.
