Fairyfield is a superb, very private detached house on the South Devon coast with only one near neighbour, all on one level and with stunning views from most rooms across a wonderful seascape that sweeps across Start Bay to the lighthouse. Here there is nothing but the murmur of the sea below, the sound of bird song and the wind rustling through the pines to disturb the wonderfully peaceful atmosphere. Of the highest quality and contemporary in style, the house is elegant yet supremely comfortable and features fine oak floors throughout. Set on the outskirts of the thriving village of Stoke Fleming that has a well-known pub, historic church, village stores and with the proximity of Dartmouth, the coastal path and the famous Blackpool Sands beach, this stylish and very comfortably furnished property is a must. A welcome pack is provided on arrival.
Please Note: This property will accommodate a maximum of 8 guests including infants. Babies up to the age of 12 months do not count as guest numbers.
A glazed front door leads into a spacious hallway with cloaks cupboard. The most attractive and spacious living room has triple aspect windows and two sets of sliding patio doors, all to make the most of the views. Three generous sofas and chairs surround a fireplace with modern woodburner stove, TV, Hi-Fi system with iPod jack, dining table to seat 8. The very smart kitchen area is well fitted and equipped with a ceramic electric hob, eye level double ovens, microwave, freezer and large integral fridge, dishwasher, radio and breakfast bar with stools. Adjoining utility room with washing machine, tumble dryer, boiler and door to a porch at the side of the property. Off the central hallway is a large shower room with corner shower, heated towel rail, basin and WC. Snug sitting/TV room with a sofa, bean bags and flat screen TV with DVD. Bathroom with double ended bath, central taps and hand shower, heated towel rail, basin and WC. A fabulous master bedroom suite features a wonderfully spacious bedroom with 5ft bed that faces a huge picture window with stunning sea views, comfortable sofa, TV, a fireplace housing a wood burner and a magnificent armoire for clothes storage. En-suite shower room with double size shower enclosure, heated towel rail, basin and WC. A French door leads onto the terrace. Two twin bedrooms (one with fitted cupboard) both with 3ft beds and lovely views over the terrace to the sea. A third twin bedroom with 3ft beds and pine wardrobe is at the side of the house.
The house is reached down a long no-through lane that leads to only a few houses and the last part of which is unmade. A path leads down to the front door and the gardens extend around the seaward side of the house. A paved terrace extends from the house with picnic table, sun loungers, barbecue and a deck area is supplied with table and chairs. A level lawn then slopes down to a further area of grass with wild flowers and cut paths edged with shrubs and fenced where it drops away down to the sea. A gated path with cut steps and a rope handrail leads down the cliff side to two level areas, all with amazing views. On the lower level a circular open sided summerhouse with table and bench seating for 10 looks out from the cliff top over Start Bay. Roll up canvas sides offer protection in wet weather.
Please note: Children will need supervision in the garden.
A gated entrance to the property leads to a gravelled parking area for a maximum of 4 cars.

We had the most perfect holiday spotlessly clean bungalow beautifully furnished with amazing view of the sea from the back garden. We felt we were in paradise & would recommend Toad Hall Cottages & Fairyfield 100%...Thank you for a wonderful holiday
Lovely views and really well equipped kitchen and house.
We had a lovely Christmas staying at Fairfield and walked many miles during the week and enjoyed good weather. We would recommend the local pub to anyone which is good walk from the house and very welcoming. Our only grumble would be that the cleaners turned up and sat on the drive at 9.15 am on the day that we were leaving. We know that there were people coming into the house that afternoon but this rushed us into leaving and a coat was left behind by my parents.
Having stayed at this property previously it overall still remains positive. If I were being critical, and weather didn’t help, overall possibly looking a bit “tired”
We had a wonderful two weeks.
Wonderful property in a fantastic location everything you need for a relaxing break
We all had a wonderful holiday in a superb property. We could not find fault with anything.
Perfect accommodation, all on the level, and plenty of space for a 3 generation holiday. The location and outdoor space is magical.
Yes- great.family get together!
Location was amazing.... could happily live there for the rest of my life :-)
Yes we enjoyed a great family get together there.
Overall we loved our stay in Fairyfield, it was one of the best holiday cottages we have stayed in. It has lovely paintings and interesting artwork. All the furniture was very comfortable with an exceptionally comfortable bed in the master bedroom. It was very peaceful with lovely views and was a treat to come back to after trips out. We would definitely recommend it to family and friends.
4th year - great property. The cleaners do a great job - always spotless
We enjoyed our stay immensely. The accommodation was perfect for all the family with separate bedrooms and bathrooms. It is a lovely garden with wonderful views out to sea. My comments above did not detract from our enjoyment of the cottage or of the location and surrounding area. I would recommend the cottage but with advisory comments about Shady Lane.
We had a great stay. We especially enjoyed having all our meals outside overlooking the fantastic view. The house is spacious and well equipped and was perfect for our family.
This is the second time we have visited this superb property. As before the property didn't disappoint. It lies in a fantastic location offering those all important views across the bay. Stoke Fleming is a lovely village and Dartmouth offers some quality restaurants.
A really good experience in a great house at the right price.
Lovely week in beautiful surroundings
