Clarence Cottage, once a threshing barn, is set within a small group of converted farm buildings in a delightful secluded valley surrounded by rolling Devon farmland just minutes from the superb coastline of this very special part of South Devon. This charming, detached and tastefully decorated cottage is ideal for two, a very peaceful and attractive spot to escape to. Set in a wonderful rural location, walkers will delight at the coastal paths nearby and there is ample opportunity to explore Dartmouth with its river boat trips, excellent restaurants and boutique shops, or idle days away on the beautiful beaches nearby. Welcome pack provided.
‘The cottage is lovely a perfect bolt hole away from the hurly burly of everyday life. We hope to return.’ The Hinkleys.
Front door leads into a most attractive, comfortable open-plan sitting room and dining/kitchen. This is a charming room with a two-seater sofa and chair, electric flame effect fire, digital TV/DVD and full length windows towards the garden. The smart kitchen area is well equipped and has fine fitted oak units, electric hob and oven with extractor hood, dishwasher, washer/dryer, built in microwave, fridge/freezer and dining table for four. Pine stairs lead upstairs to the landing. The shower room has a large corner shower, hand basin and WC. The pretty double bedroom, with attractive chintz furnishings, has a 5ft King size bed, wardrobe, chest of drawers and double doors leading to steps down to the driveway and garden. There are pleasant views from the bedroom across the garden and the countryside beyond.
A level lawn area with planted banks and garden table and chairs is opposite the front door. An ideal spot for enjoying the evening sun setting over the valley below and watching the alpacas in the paddock.

we enjoyed our stay and the hosts, Katie and Nico were very welcoming, particularly as we had our guide dog with us. they checked on us when they were about outside but otherwise were unobtrusive yet on hand if required. the cottage is in a very secluded location and not quite in Stoke Fleming as we had anticipated. the seclusion is lovely and peaceful and the alpacas are a delight, especially with their 'humming'. the only downside is the access to the cottage. seclusion often brings with it narrow, single track lanes with very few passing places and this was no exception. the cottage is about a mile from a main road and the lane is very narrow. perhaps this should be made more obvious to people of a more nervous disposition.
Lovely cottage great location and very well supplied with fixtures and fittings etc
Fabulous location - owners were delightful- just a home from home
Fabulous holiday cottage, peace and quite, very comfortable. Alpacas are a delight. Owners are friendly and helpful, lovely white towels and bed linen. Close to beach and town. Would recommend to friends and family.
Perfect cottage, very friendly & helpful owners, highly recommended
Clarence Cottage is very comfortable and well appointed and in a beautiful location. There is a lovely outside seating area where you can watch the alpacas and all you can hear is bird song. Very restful with some wonderful walks right from the cottage.
Lovely cottage in superb location.
The owners made us felt very welcome. A few very nice little touches such as milk, biscuits, tea and coffee etc. were waiting for us on arrival. An extremely well appointed cottage where no expense with fixtures and appliances seems to have been spared. Also credit to the cleaners as everything was spotlessly clean.
Very friendly and warm welcome from the owners Katie & Nico Clarence Cottage is a wonderfull place to spend quiet and bucolic holidays. Less than 10 minutes drive to Dartmouth which is a very lovely village where we recomend "The Dolphin" for a beer and a fish & chips in a tremendous atmosphere !
We felt we were really spoilt. The added little extras were so appreciated. Able to really relax and enjoy wonderful scenery and such peace and quite. The Alpacas were a joy We so enjoyed
Everything was lovely
We've stayed at Clarence Cottage seven times now and it's perfect in every way!
No other comments. We really enjoyed our holiday
