Acorn cottage, small and cosy and equipped to a good standard, is perfect for two or a couple with two children and being close to the South Devon coast and the picturesque village of Slapton it’s a perfect holiday retreat.

Dartmouth and Kingsbridge are within 15 minutes drive, both with interesting shops, fine restaurants, boat trips, sailing and much more. Totnes, a quaint Elizabethan town is 9 miles away and Dartmoor, with wonderful walking and spectacular scenery is within easy reach. Buckland Court is well situated for a wide range of indoor and outdoor pursuits including golf. A gate from the courtyard opens out to a sweep of grass and orchard (1.5 acres) including a large pond populated by ducks. There is a built in barbecue with picnic benches where guests can relax and young people can play outdoor games and a children’s adventure playhouse on stilts with a slide and swings and a pool table/tennis table in the laundry room for those rainy days.

We really enjoyed our peaceful stay. But were a little disappointed by the location which is hard to get away from except by car. Otherwise it was quite nice after long days of rambling through the countryside.
The welcome bottle of wine was very much appreciated. We loved the location and our granddaughter really enjoyed her first holiday in Devon. Thank you
Lovely place and grounds. Ideal for Slapton.
We loved our stay here and would definitely stay again, I would definitely recommend it to others not only a lovely cosy well equipped cottage but has a beautiful setting with lots for children to explore in a beautiful area, it is close to the beach and great pubs with fab food couldn't ask for more
