The access to the parking area is very steep and narrow. With Plymouth city just across the water and a choice of good beaches nearby, Drift Cottage is an excellent cottage for a very special Devon break. Amenities: Central heating, open fire with underfloor heating. Microwave, fridge-freezer, washing machine, dishwasher, TV, Netflix WiFi, Fuel and power inc. in rent. Bed linen and towels inc. in rent. Cot and highchair available on request. Off road parking for two cars, further parking is available in a public car park nearby. Barbecue. Two well-behaved dogs welcome, Sorry no smoking. Pub less than 1 mile from property. Note: Access to the parking area for this property is very steep and narrow (7'3' at the narrowest point). Region: Devon, with its quiet country lanes, patchwork of lush green fields and sleepy villages is not to be missed. Stately home lovers will be spoiled and why not finish with a scrumptious Devonshire cream tea? Town: Surrounded by the rugged beauty of Dartmoor, the glorious countryside of the South Hams and the vibrant scenery of the South Devon coast, Plymouth offers the perfect mixture of maritime heritage and natural beauty in a vibrant city environment.More
