Located in Buckfastleigh within the Dartmoor National Park, is this quaint, little 19th-century holiday cottage, peacefully situated, but convenient terrace, built for mill workers. The cottage boasts lots of character and quirkiness, complimented by the owners flair and style. It has an enclosed, south-facing courtyard with garden furniture - a sun trap in the summer months. The living room has lots of beams and an inglenook ’living flame’ stove, and is decorated with warm colours. There are pretty views of the town and hills from the landing and the double bedroom. Buckfastleigh is a pleasant, little old town, with pubs, cafés, shops and a weekly farmers’ market, and is situated beside the River Dart and Buckfast Abbey. Also in the town, there is an outdoor swimming pool. Hop onto a train at the South Devon railway, or visit the butterfly and otter sanctuary which is close by. This little hideaway cottage is perfect for couples or for those with children seeking a quiet escape. It is 4 miles to Holne and 6 miles to Totnes, an attractive old town with summer boat trips to Dartmouth. An ideal base for visiting Dartmoor and the coast. A warm welcome awaits here at Sherwell Cottage. Beach 14 miles. Shops, pubs and restaurants 50 yards.

    Low score as a result of the following: There were dirty marks left on kitchen cupboards, drawers and white goods from previous spillages. The spotlights in the kitchen had grease on top of them. The vinyl in the kitchen was damaged in places and it was difficult to tell whether the floor was dirty or not. Crockery, cutlery and pans had to be washed before we could use them. Having so many pieces of cutlery in different places was also confusing.Cobwebs were visible hanging from the beams. When lifting both sets of sofa seat pads crumbs from previous occupants were found. In general we felt the cottage was tired and in need of a refresh all round. The dark colours on the walls making the cottage darker than it already was. Upstairs was better, the bonus being a very comfortable bed. Unfortunately the ceiling height above the shower/bath was too low for my partner at 6ft 4inches, to stretch his arm up.
