Looking for the quintessential Devon Thatched Cottage? Well Langford Down will tick all the boxes. Brimming with character there are slate floors with underfloor heating, beamed ceilings, an inglenook fireplace and Rayburn stove, so we can’t think of a single feature lacking in this perfect holiday destination. Overlooking a beautiful valley, just outside the coastal village of Slapton the cottage is surrounded by a lovely large garden with a sunny barbeque area looking out over the Devon countryside. There’s a comfortable sitting room with wood burner, a modern well equipped kitchen diner and upstairs three comfortable bedrooms. A short drive or pleasant walk along the lane brings you into Slapton, with its village pubs and shop and a little further on you’re on Slapton beach. The nearby South West Coastal Path provides some beautiful walks and a visit to the historic port of Dartmouth, the market town of Kingsbridge and the yacht haven of Salcombe are all great days out.
Please Note, that owing to the quite steep steps leading down to the property, which can be slippery when wet this cottage isn't suitable for the elderly or those with walking disabilities.

Cottage needs a little bit of TLC, new rugs etc. Its so nearly there, stunning location.
loved our stay at Langford Down once again, superb part of the South Hams to holiday in. The tranquility is breathtaking. loved our walks down the lanes to the Queens Arms. Great to sit in the beer garden and look across Slapton Village.
Overall the stay and cottage was great. Especially for the owners letting us have the property with the 4 dogs, we looked after the property as if it were our own and vacuumed and cleaned up every day. We have stayed in this location before so we knew what was around the area, will definitely be booking another stay soon.
Although we had a lovely stay, my only complaint would be that we did not have hot water to start with, so I called Jane Bickle to advise her of this, leaving a message on home phone and mobile. My call not was returned and we had to make do with boiling continuous kettles. On Monday morning I called Toad Hall Cottages and I must say, staff there were helpful and we received a call back later from them advising us of what to do. I don't know why we never received a call back from the caretaker of the cottage. A couple of days before we left the property we received a pre-printed card from Jane Bickle, requesting (politely) if we could empty bins/strip beds etc. and stating how busy they were and how busy the roads would be ....... I didn't appreciate this, especially as my telephone call was not returned.
Thank you for your feedback, we have passed this to the caretaker and the owner to try and ensure this does not happen again. On occasions when a caretaker is not able to be contacted there is a member of The Toad Hall Team on call for emergencies. We are glad you enjoyed your stay overall and we hope to see you again soon. Many Thanks The Toad Hall Team.

The cottage in which we stayed was beautiful, a real romantic getaway nestled amongst the rolling hills. It was incredibly cosy and welcoming and amazingly equipped with everything that we needed and more! The flowers, welcome card and cake were very thoughtful touches as were the amazing 'doggy bags' that were hand delivered to our canine companions! Thank you so very much for such a wonderful holiday, we can't wait to return in the new year. *I would definitely recommend using Toad Hall Cottages as the communication, helpfulness and support of all the staff that I dealt with was totally faultless. Many thanks again.
