With 4K Blueray, Wifi and a selection of DVD's & Books mean there is always something to do even if the weather is against you. The open plan lounge-diner leads into the bespoke, country cottage kitchen with terracotta floor tiles. A rear door leads to a secluded, stone-walled courtyard with patio table & chairs for long summer evenings outdoors. The Chapel Room downstairs leads from the lounge area and accommodates couples or 2 singles. With oak beams and stone walls, this room has some unique features including circular window, granite post and Suffolk latch doors. Up the open staircase leading onto a 1st floor landing, the family bathroom benefits from a luxury full hydrotherapy bath with spa jets, lighting and shower wand. Feature walls and beams, again make this a bathroom to spend time in. From the landing, the large master bedroom opens up to reveal the heritage of the Old Stables. Twisted oak beams, vaulted ceilings and complimentary antique furniture make for a truly romantic experience.More

This is a comfortable, very quiet little house, a very delicious welcome package is provided. Buckfastleigh is a charming laid back village with a good Co Op & health food shop. Buckfast Abbey has a beautiful peaceful garden to sit & contemplate whatever in!

This is a really well appointed cottage, ideal for two or a small family. We enjoyed a very wet and windy March weekend here and made the most of the wood burner in the lounge area and the wonderfully relaxing jacuzzi bath. I can’t recall...More

About the neighbourhood
BUCKFASTLEIGH A small market town on the old route between Exeter and Plymouth, Buckfastleigh was a centre for the wool trade for most of its history. The mid 19th century was the town's most prosperous period, when there were seven mills active, supplemented by some coaching inns for travellers to and from Plymouth. At Buckfast, about a mile to the north, is Buckfast Abbey. Founded in the 11th century by King Canute, the Abbey has a fascinating history and is now an active Benedictine Monastery - the only monastery in the UK open to the public. From the station you can catch a steam train on the South Devon Railway heritage line along the Dart Valley to Totnes or the Buckfast Heritage Bus to the Abbey and the town. Next to the station is Buckfast Butterflies and Dartmoor Otters for wi...

Follow the road on up the hill and straight over the crossroads at the of crest of the hill and head down towards the town. After passing the first few houses on your right, turn right into Church Street. Continue past The Sun Inn on your left and as road gently starts to rise it becomes Market Street. A little further on, just beyond the narrowest point in the street you will see a large grey gate on your left. This is approximate...
