    “We arrived after a long 9 hour drive and we were thankful for the very accurate directions to this beautiful cottage set next to a lovely stream.”

    Everything was in order when we arrived, very clean and tidy and everything that you could possibly need for a week away. The kitchen was amazing with its fitted units and the glass walls looking out onto the spacious garden (we were meant to have a dog with us but due to ill heath we had to leaver her at home but I just know she would have loved it). The snug was well appointed and great for a cozy night in front of the TV and the log burner was a welcome addition when the temperature dropped ...

    Everything was in order when we arrived, very clean and tidy and everything that you could possibly need for a week away. The kitchen was amazing with its fitted units and the glass walls looking out onto the spacious garden (we were meant to have a dog with us but due to ill heath we had to leaver her at home but I just know she would have loved it). The snug was well appointed and great for a cozy night in front of the TV and the log burner was a welcome addition when the temperature dropped at night. The bedrooms were also lovely and the beds were very comfortable (which doesn't happen very often). Bathrooms were spotless and the towels did the job they were supposed to do!! This is a beautiful property and we are very pleased we chose Cullerford Cottage. We did have one very small problem with a shower but a quick phone call to the housekeeper and it was sorted in no time. Thank you for allowing us to share your home for our holiday.

The property

½ mile from Scorriton, in the tiny hamlet of Combe through which the River Mardle meanders to the beautiful, bouldered River Dart, a stunning detached cottage, once home to the author Mary Wesley and a haven from the modern world.

Across the little used single-track lane, a small enclosed orchard (picnic bench) and, beyond, a bluebell wood (deer, kingfishers) with the river on one side.

Behind the cottage, an enclosed lawned garden plus cobbled/paved terrace (table/chairs).

Inside, simple and elegant with pale wood and stone floors, soothing white palette and original art.

Step up from garden into magnificent oak-framed kitchen/dining room, fully glazed on two sides with the sleek kitchen (dishwasher, larder fridge, electric cooker) along the length.

Eight shallow steps down to snug living room (TV/DVD/Blu-ray) with woodburner.

Second living room with chaise longue and woodburner, a space for reading/writing.

Utility room (washing machine, tumble drier, American-style fridge-freezer, sink) and bathroom (suite, hipbath plus hand-shower).

Upstairs (some low lintels), two bedrooms, simply furnished - an airy double (6' bed) with pitched ceiling, views over the garden and shower-room (suite) up 7 steps, and a twin tucked under the eaves, plus smart bathroom (suite with separate shower).

Arrival after 4pm.

Spring water.

A magical and sophisticated cottage in a tranquil, beautiful setting.

Due to the owners insurance no fires or barbecues are permitted at this property due to the thatched roof. Scorriton: small village (good food pub) on the beautiful sheltered and wooded southern slopes of the Dartmoor National Park.

Holne (pub, tea room, community shop), 1 mile.

Lovely walking/riding (stables nearby).

Buckfastleigh and A38 road, 3 miles; Ashburton, 5; Totnes (small town, weekly markets) 6.
