This charming 18th century, white washed, detached cottage is situated in the delightful village of Stoke Fleming, renowned for its friendly community and proximity to the marvellous beach of Blackpool Sands. The cottage has old connections with Britannia Royal Naval College in Dartmouth, hence its name, and nestles below the historic village church. Across the village street, and only a few steps away, is The Green Dragon, a popular traditional pub serving good quality food and drinks. A ten minute walk will take you to beautiful Blackpool Sands or onto the coast path which can be followed to nearby Dartmouth. This lovely cottage is a great base for enjoying the South Hams.

Lovely cottage-Enjoyed our stay very much.

January 2019

We had a lovely stay at Britannia cottage and really appreciated the location and the ability to be able to include our dog in our holiday. The conservatory is lovely although we didn't use it in December! The garden is a good size and secure. The heating works really well which is essential in an old property. The kitchen was well equipped for preparing and cooking. I loved the size, layout and aspect of the kitchen with the large farmhouse table; it was my favourite room. I hope my comments help and I look forward to your response concerning the price. Terri

We have stayed here over many years. The quirks of the cottage are part of it's charm. Log fire very welcome! However some things need improving or changing. (See comments above).

September 2018

A quaint cottage in a brilliant village centre location within easy reach of all the attractions in the South Hams. Would definitely consider booking it again and would highly recommend it to others

July 2018

Cottage was very nice but I think I hadn’t read the information closely enough to note that it was right beside the pub’s beer garden which was very busy Friday/Saturday/Sunday night and noisy into the evening. Also a bit tricky to park nearby, especially when the pub was busy. Might be nice to make this clear to future guests. Otherwise thanks for a lovely holiday, was a great base for exploring Devon and the cottage was clean, comfortable and well equipped.

July 2018

A lovely cottage in a great location with a great local shop and pub

April 2018

Yes, thank you, we did enjoy our stay. The cottage was warm and comfortable. It was in a lovely location.

April 2018

Yes, we very much enjoyed our stay: we really liked the cottage's large kitchen, conservatory, courtyard and separate utility buiding for washing machine / dryer and it was ideal for our family (two youngish children). The village is friendly and has a good shop and (the main reason we chose it) Blackpool Sands is walking distance away (our younger one is 5 and just about managed it!). Also a good location from which to explore other nearby areas (e.g. Dartmouth, Slapton, Brixham) and we also spent a day on Dartmoor. Was not really an issue for us and fully to be expected but perhaps worth noting that the cottage is directly opposite a pub and next to a church (with quite frequent bell ringing activity!) so perhaps not as quiet as some locations.

Very much so, great little cation for Dartmouth and local beaches.

Yes. We have found a break in BRITA is very useful for recharging tired bodies. Well done!

July 2017

À very pleasant cottage. Well equipped, cosy. Walking routes easy accessible.

June 2017

It was lovely to arrive to milk in the fridge and biscuits too. Human type and doggie type too! Really enjoyed the stay. A little disappointed that the closest beach was quite a walk away and not dog friendly during the summer season, but otherwise, fab! Lovely spacious garden, great facilities in the house and a great spot for exploring the surrounding area. Had amazing walks with the dogs and they loved it too. Comfortable rooms, bathroom and amazingly soft water - love it! :) No phone signal but good wi-fi. Would most certainly stay again and recommend to all.

March 2017

It is a lovely comfortable cottage and we had a great time. Thanks

July 2016

A very enjoyable holiday in a pleasant location. Nice cottage, well presented.

April 2016

We had a lovely holiday and the cottage was well equipped and warm

November 2013

This is wonderful cottage in a great location, but as it is quite rural there is no/very limited mobile phone signal against all 4 separate networks that we had. This is fine if there is a phone installed and wi-fi within the property for contact in the event of an emergency. There is no phone with the cottage as advertised, but it states in the brochure that there is wi-fi. very disappointingly there was not, therefore our communications options were very limited. Therefore if you need to communicate then this is not for you, if this is not an issue then it is a wonderful cottage.

<p>Regretably the Wi-Fi was inoperable during your stay, but the internet provider has now sorted the problem and the service is restored. We apologise for the inconvenience and hope that it didn&#39;t dedtract from you enjoying your holiday too much. The Toad Hall team.</p>
