This lovely holiday cottage is utterly delightful, tucked away in a peaceful valley in the folds of rolling Devon hills, a haven of seclusion and a real hideaway. Attached on one side to the owners' 17th century farmhouse, the cottage is entirely separate with its own front door, separate driveway and the spacious, attractive sitting room has French doors onto a south facing flagstone terrace (for sole use of the cottage) that overlooks a beautiful half acre orchard and ponds which is shared with the owners. Here it is possible to enjoy a summer evening barbecue, or stoke up the fire for a cosy night in after walk along the nearby coastal paths. Perfect for two or three people the cottage can accommodate up to 5 with the use of a sofa-bed. Lambs gambol in neighbouring fields and the resident chickens and ducks complete the rural idyll. Pippin Cottage is close to some of South Devon’s best surfing beaches with the beautiful estuary of the River Erme and Mothecombe beach a couple of miles away. The twin villages of Newton Ferrers and Noss Mayo with popular riverside pubs are on the nearby Yealm estuary, itself a boating haven for all manner of craft. Please note: the owners have two free-range friendly dogs, who play in the orchard from time to time.
“On leaving we know what it’s like to be thrown out of the Garden of Eden. Pippin is paradise...Can we come again please?” The O’Dyers, Amsterdam.
“Just the perfect location and a very special welcome. We loved the cottage at first sight and the scrummy cake and wine was a most unexpected delight. Thank you.” Jim and Rita.

DELIGHTFUL OWNERS OF THIS GORGEOUS LITTLE COTTAGE IN A GREAT LOCATION IN DEVON. WE LOVED IT
We did enjoy it and the welcome treats were much appreciated
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this area despite the weather. We had some wonderful walks.
We had a fantastic holiday. The cottage was super and the owners lovely and very helpful. I wouldn't hesitate to use Toad Hall cottages again.
Would highly recommend Pippin Cottage. Just perfect to relax and unwind. Tom and Jools were very welcoming and the cake, bread and wine was a lovely touch and delicious. Loved Stanley. Sad that we couldn't stay longer.
This was an excellent cottage. Set quietly in the Devon countryside but not too inaccessible to everything we needed. The surrounding beaches and landscape were beautiful and in the evenings we would come back and enjoy the facilities of the cottage. It is well equipped and the hosts very helpful. Would definitely go back.
A lovely cottage in a peaceful setting. The owners could not be more helpful and considerate - Stanley the dog was a welcome and frequent visitor. The welcome pack was particularly enticing after a long car journey and very gratefully received. We loved our stay .
Yes we know the area well so it was perfect & complimented by lovely weather. A lovely stay.
we had a lovely stay at Pippin cottage it was just as described and we were warmly welcomed by the owners. Toad hall cottages seem to have got it just right, the cottages and owners we have come across so far have been more than welcoming and we have thoroughly enjoyed our stay along with our dog Billy who has had the time of his life
What a perfect base from which to explore Devon. Situated down a winding lane at Fursdon Farm, the bark of our hosts delightful dog Stanley greeted us and what a little treasure The Pippin is. Very deceiving from the outside although picture perfect with passion flower and wisteria climbing the walls and set in an orchard garden, the cottage is deceptively spacious and offers every comfort you need for a relaxing break. From the chickens who greet you, to sitting in the afternoon sun on the patio - this was absolutely perfect and would be our ideal dream home. Met our expectations and more. Thank you Dean, Julie and Pippa the Springer Christchurch, Dorset
The service provided by Toad Hall Coattages was excellent. Pippin Cottage was delightful. Amazing location so peaceful, lovely big garden. Cottage was very well equipped and also arrived to home made bread and cake, as well as a bottle of wine. Owners couldn't have been more helpful, lovely people. Will definitely be going back again. Can highly recommend.
We had a great holiday at Pippin Cottage. We loved the location so peaceful and so nice to come back to after a day out. It really is in the country but not too far away from the attractions of Devon. We wouldn't hesitate to use Toad Hall Cottages again, and so pleased we found you on the Internet.
Wonderful location - an idyllic cottage with very helpful and friendly owners. Thank you for a superb holiday.
Piping cottage is a little gem, superb location, very comfortable and good to get away from it all. The owners ( who live next door) are very friendly and helpful. Our dog Ruby loved following Stanley with his ball. Would recommend to anyone looking for a relaxing break.
Lovely property with friendly owners on site
What a wonderful cottage and location. We absolutely loved our week there. It was perfect in every way.
A simply wonderful weekend in a charming cottage. A lovely warm welcome. We would love to stay again.
Thanks to Tom and Jules for making our stay in South Devon so memorable. Pippin Cottage is just what is needed for a relaxing holiday. Thank you so much for the goodies on arrival.
Fantastic clean and comfy cottage in a beautiful location. Great base to explore Devon. Made to feel very welcome by the owners. What more can you ask for!!
Pippin Cottage is the ultimate place in which to relax and unwind. The peaceful suroundings are the epitome of tranquility. The warm welcome and reception we received was just a pleasure, as were the wine and delicicious cake provided by Jules and Tom. Once again we thank you both. Stanley, their lovable and friendly black labrador welcomed us on arrival each evening to add yet another dimension to a wonderful holiday. Needless to say we will return to Pippin Cottage again.
