Hawthorn, the latest addition to our cottages in Buckland Court, South Devon offers guests comfortable accommodation and easy access to the coast and the pretty village of Slapton. Buckland Court is nestled deep in delightful South Hams countryside, 1.5 miles from the historic village of Slapton with its world famous nature reserve, 3 mile beach and excellent real ale pubs. 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, 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.

The cottages are very comfortable and well furnished and set around a pretty courtyard with summer hanging baskets and benches. The kitchens are well equipped with gas hobs, cooker extractor hoods, built-under ovens, fridges and microwaves. All beds are standard size (4ft 6in doubles, 3ft singles). The bathrooms all have a shower over the bath, hand basin and WC. All cottages have central heating, a gas fire in the living area and are equipped with iron and ironing board.

September 2018

We had a wonderful time and everyone was very friendly and helpful.

July 2018

Generally enjoyable. Found the closure of the A road at Slapton was restrictive. Garden was lovely & relaxing.

June 2018

Such a lovely location, perfect just what we wanted.

October 2017

Low lying and therefore a bit gloomy when wet/foggy but nice grounds and beautiful countryside. Simon the caretaker pleasant and helpful.

September 2017

Our second visit to this comfortable cottage which is set in lovely grounds complete with duck pond and orchard.Everything we needed was supplied -very comfortable beds and a cosy lounge area.We just love the peace and quiet of the place -but it's handy to visit Dartmouth -Totnes-Salcombe etc.To us it's a little slice of heaven .

July 2017

Wonderful place to stay, we will come again. Thank you and Simon for a great time at Buckland court

August 2016

This place is a little slice of heaven. The cottage worked well for us as a family, we especially enjoyed the downstairs aspect. To have the ducks, owls, gardens and cows was an added bonus to the cottage setting. Simon was fab, helpful and very welcoming. What Simon adds to the experience of living here is invaluable in regards to a constant point of contact who takes time to inform and to also spend time educating the children about their surroundings. The utility room with the pool table etc was also appreciated by the children, thank you.

August 2016

What a lovely place, just right for our family. Cosy and well appointed, we have enjoyed ourselves here very much (and the kids loved the summer house!) Simon is a star and has been amazingly helpful, thanks to all. Stephen Marshall and family

Thank you for a wonderful stay at Hawthorn cottage. It was a family holiday and it was superb. Love the gardens and surrounds. Many thanks, Beryl, Duncan, Claire and Ralph.

August 2016

Have spent 2 weeks in this beautiful spacious cosy cottage and will be sorry to leave. It is so quiet and peaceful with lovely grounds and scenic views. Have enjoyed talking to Simon the caretaker – a lovely helpful man. Had long lovely lunches at Stokeley, try the Sunday roasts. Plenty to do round here or you can just relax and listen to the quietness and birdsong. Thank you for the welcome pack of wine crisps and orange juice, most welcome indeed. Had a great holiday and hope to come back soon. Julie Warner, Leicester

August 2016

Six of us came here for a few days for Tribal Clash , a cross fit competition. We love the cottage. It is so spacious and wonderfully clean, a very important point for me! We didn't have any issues and Simon the manager was extremely welcoming, friendly and helpful. We were welcomed with a little welcome pack of crisps and wine which was perfect after a 10 hour drive! Would love to come again! Mr Humphries, Newmarket.

I think in terms of the weekly charge for the cottage cost of laundry facilities for Hawthorne should be included in cost. That said, cottage was superb, very tasteful and well decorated plus very clean and comfortable. The grounds are also immaculate.

<p>Glad that you loved the cottage and grounds and had a good holiday. The owners are looking into the charges for laundry facilities for future bookings. We hope that the small charges incurred won&#39;t stop you coming to this idylic spot again. &nbsp;The Toad Hall team.</p>
