The small hillside coastal village of Holcombe, comprising mainly thatched cottages and overlooking the sea is midway between the seaside towns and sandy beaches of Dawlish and Teignmouth. In Holcombe is Sea Glass Cottage, a cute Grade II listed, thatched cottage, tucked neatly at the end-of-row with a small enclosed suntrap gravelled garden to the side. The newly transformed interior with pretty fabrics and local artwork gives this small but perfectly-formed cottage a smart, stylish and welcoming feel. The living room is bright and cosy with a terracotta tiled floor, flame-effect electric stove and dining area. There is also a double sofa bed (for alternative sleeping). The neat kitchen is well equipped with everything you'll need for your holiday. From the lounge, stairs lead to a double king size bedroom with beams, pretty furnishings and an electric flame-effect fire. Handy for both coast and countryside, you can visit some of Devon's best beaches and leading attractions such as Living Coasts, Powderham Castle or head inland to rugged Dartmoor National Park, all within a short drive. A little gem, Sea Glass Cottage is a romantic escape for two.
Over two floors. 1 x king size double bedroom. Ground floor shower room with shower, WC and basin. Sitting room with dining area. Kitchen.
HOLCOMBE Dawlish Warren 3 miles; Dawlish 1.5 miles, Teignmouth 1.9 miles. Holcombe is situated between the seaside resorts of Dawlish and Teignmouth, and is in a designated conservation area with a picturesque village centre lined with pretty thatched cottages, a village shop and traditional pub. Holcombe's history has been associated with smugglers and has been impacted by the growth of the railways - the Bristol to Plymouth main line goes along the coast at Holcombe and is one of the most scenic stretches of the rail network in the country. The beach at Dawlish Warren is a sandy Blue Flag beach backed by sand dunes and small lakes and stretches for miles to reach the Exe Estuary in one direction, and Dawlish town in the other. A safe beach, lifeguarded in summer, provides a perfect place for seaside fun, and has many free, open-air events, children's entertainers and spectacular firework and air displays during the summer season. Nearby there is much to occupy the visitor along the English Riviera coastline, including Paignton Zoo, the Dartmouth Steam Railway, the picturesque fishing harbour of Brixham and the long pier and promenade at Teignmouth. A typically English seaside resort, great for family holidays at any time of year.
