Romantic and charming, just a couple of words that epitomise Yew Tree Cottage. This property has been thoughtfully and lovingly restored by its owners and provides an opulent retreat for couples and their dogs, just a stone’s throw from  the popular South Devon town of Totnes. The property has been tastefully equipped by its owners to ensure that guests have an enjoyable stay regardless of the English weather. Whether it is alfresco dining in the beautifully kept rear garden, soaking in the luxury roll top bath or perhaps spending an evening in front of the wood burner, Yew Tree Cottage will not fail to impress. The cottage is nestled in the friendly and welcoming village of Broadhempston. This little known gem prides itself on its community atmosphere and offers a fully stocked local shop as well as two locally renowned Pubs. Surrounded by beautiful Devon countryside, the guests can enjoy many local scenic walks or for the more adventurous, the National Park of Dartmoor is a short drive away as is the beautiful and famous South Devon coastline.

Short breaks are available in this cottage during the low and mid seasons.  Please call Toad Hall Cottages to book.

Property reviews for Yew Tree Cottage

Rated 4.5/5 based on 7 reviews

Yew Tree Cottage is a very happy and cosy cottage full of colour and charm. Extremely clean, welcoming and homely with everything you could wish for. It's the kind of cottage that definitely puts a smile on your face. We loved everything about it and would come back again and again.

We were very happy with Yew Tree cottage and were touched by the welcome basket filled with provisions. The village was perfect with 2 very good pubs. We would love to go again for longer next time.

Yew Tree Cottage in Broadhempston was an absolute delight. A perfect holiday retreat for those wanting to get away from it all and relax in tranquil and peaceful surroundings but only 5 miles from the delightful town of Totnes. Very highly recommended.

Slept well, ate well and very comfortable. A wonderful welcome basket, and our dog had everything she needed. We had a most enjoyable week and the fire was great.

Yew Tree Cottage

A beautifully appointed cottage. A great place to relax after exhausting dog walks. Friendly village. Will be recommending to friends.

A very comfortable cottage and the welcome basket a nice touch. Dog walk sheets and books very useful. Monks Retreat was very friendly but Coppa Dolla more so and great vibe as well. Great walks on and over Dartmoor. The steam train along the River Dart well worth it even if the sun isn't shining.

Loved the cottage and all the personal touches. Beautiful countryside and views. We had a lovely time.
