“The Granary is a wonderful homely self contained place to stay. It has a great little kitchen area and comfortable living space. I slept well in the cosy, restful bedroom. There was a great selection of breakfast foods including cereal, bacon, tomatoes, milk, lots of fresh eggs (laid by Linda and Tim’s chickens) and bread. I couldn’t have met two more kind, lovely people, and their friends and neighbours, who have helped me, following get my car stuck down a lane!. I am very grateful for the generosity and kindness I have been shown this week. It is a fab place to spend time away from the hubbub of daily living (the phone signal and WiFi isn’t too great) and take a proper break. Rest and enjoy the beautiful country side. Thank you Tim, Linda and your your wonderful neighbours.”
Explore the South West Coast Path, then snuggle up for a relaxed night on the quaint, checked sofa at this cozy, single-storey cottage nestled in a shared courtyard. Whitewashed stone walls, pastel-hued panelling, and soft cream creates a snug feel.
“The cottage was a great place for relaxing at February half term and exploring Paignton and Brixham. Just enough for us 2 adults and 11 year old and 2 bathrooms was a luxury. Shower was great and whole house was warm and comfortable. Kitchen well equipped and we had breakfast at home. 2 pubs within walking distance. Good choice of board games our son enjoyed. Internet connection was good. I’m sure in the summer with more crowd the narrow roads could be a problem. Also parking is tight so smaller car would be better. Would recommend Rockfish in Brixham for seafood. All in all it was a great experience”
Garden flat - perfect for couples. Set all on one level where you live, eat and sleep: watch TV from the comfort of the two-seater sofa or whip up light meals in the smart little kitchen, sleep deeply in the comfortable, king size bed in the tastefully dressed bedroom – there’s a separate cute and sparkling shower room. Good lighting, pretty fabrics, soft pastel walls and solid oak doors comprise a bright understated décor. The living area is cosy while the light-filled, compact kitchen is neat-as-a-pin with its white sink, striped blinds at the windows and all the stuff you need for cooking breakfasts and suppers. Lots of useful basics, plus milk, bread, tea, coffee and eggs are left for you. Meals can be eaten at the little kitchen table or outside on the patio when the weather is good. Step outside to catch the morning sun on the patio and enjoy the sea view towards Berry Head and Brixham and nearby Occombe woods, an idyllic spot for breakfast or evening sundowners. In sunny weather you can sit in the garden or take a bottle of wine and stoke up the BBQ. You could just stay put and read your book, your peace will only be interrupted by the carefree cry of seagulls. Take to the sofa after a day trip and maybe enjoy some TV, there are also DVDs, books, board games and a deck of cards to while away the hours, also maps and local guides on the shelf to inspire you. So, relax and enjoy this clever space; with your own front door you’ll feel nicely private if you prefer to be, plus your own parking space. All in all a cosy apartment - come for calm, comfort and of course Devon cream teas! The owners live on site and will welcome you into this comfortable, self-catering hideaway for two, there if you need them but otherwise discreet if you prefer to be. Paignton, Torquay and Brixham all have attractive harbours where it is fun to sit with an ice cream or a beer and a sandwich and people-watch – it’s real old-fashioned English seaside holiday stuff but there is much to explore too. There are miles of coast, wood and moorland to explore; pubs and tea rooms along the way and hikers can head for the scenic South West Coast Path. Paignton Zoo and the Dartmouth Steam Railway are popular attractions and almost on the doorstep. National Trust properties at Compton, Collaton Fishacre, Greenway, Saltram and Killerton – all within easy reach by car.
“Diane's place will not disappoint you. Diane pops in to check you have everything and then leaves you in peace. A whole array of tourist information is at hand should you require it. Beautiful place with lovely touches through out the flat. Be aware of the hills when driving. The flat was beautifully decorated, everything you need for your stay. Very central to go exploring to torquay or brixham. Will definately return.”
