Appletree Cottage at Cotmore Farm

Just 10 minutes from the renowned South West Coast Path
45 reviews
Just 10 minutes from the renowned South West Coast Path
And half a dozen of the safest, cleanest beaches in the country
Down a winding country lane, at the end of a secluded farm courtyard
An unassuming exterior conceals an extraordinary transformation . . .
. . . of a 150-year-old barn into the coolest, funkiest, most stylish holiday home imaginable . . .
. . . designed to bring the outdoors in, and take the indoors out!
Upstairs, it's oak floors and sunlight, through roof, walls, and windows
While downstairs it's heated slate floors and eco-conscious LED lighting
Real shutters and 500-count Egyptian cotton ensure a blissful night's sleep (yes, that is a 6ft bed)
This luxurious family bathroom is the sort of place where days start and end well
Second bedroom comes with twin beds . . .
. . .or a super-kingsize – you decide!
And has its own stylish limestone bathroom with huge shower enclosure
Wherever you look, you're surrounded by green
Enjoy the comforts of home in our ergonomically optimized living area, snug whatever the weather
A compact but fully equipped kitchen puts you in control of those in-out dining decisions
There's a well stocked bookcase for rainy days
And a completely private and secluded garden terrace for the rest of the time
Paved steps run down to courtyard level and the front door
While a grassy path leads up past the dovecot to the orchard above
In the midst of so much high style it's easy to forget you're on a working smallholding
So don't miss out on your chance to get to know the locals
If petting the animals isn't your thing, how about a nice walk?
Or you could learn to surf at our nearby surf school
Sometimes all you want to do is just paddle around in the shallows
And while we can't guarantee spectacular sunsets, they are a feature of this part of the coast
Don't forget to come and see us soon!

Appletree Cottage, completed in May 2015, is our third and last farm building conversion at Cotmore Farm. It has the same stylish layout as the TripAdvisor award-winning Barn at Cotmore Farm, and the same level of finish: two large slate-floored bedrooms on the ground floor at courtyard level, one with a super-kingsize bed, the other either a twin or a super-kingsize, depending on configuration, and each with its own luxurious bathroom; bright and airy open-plan upstairs, with oak floors, vaulted ceiling, exposed beams, roof lights, fully equipped kitchen, comfy leather sofas, WiFi, woodburner; and direct access through double French doors to a private sun-trap garden terrace carved out of a green Devon bank, surrounded by steep banks filled with wildflowers, and a winding path leading up to the apple orchard. And of course you have all t... Read more

Interaction with guests
We like to welcome guests personally on arrival, show them in, and give a brief introduction to the farm and the area. After that, guests are left to their own devices, but we are never far away when needed, and can be found either in the Farmhouse, or about the place, tending to the livestock and carrying our our duties. We are always happy to recommend a walk to suit your level of adventurousness, a beach appropriate to the prevailing tide or wind direction, or a place to eat commensurate with your appetite and wallet!

Loved Appletree cottage. We all enjoyed a fantastic long weekend. The property was beautifully decorated, well equipped and in a lovely part of the country. Very helpful and friendly owners and the welcome hamper was an added bonus. Will definitely visit again.

About the neighbourhood
Many miles of safe, award-winning beaches offer swimming, rockpooling, and sunbathing opportunities, while watersports – particularly surfing, windsurfing, sailing, waterskiing, scuba diving, and parasailing – are popular and widely available. Facilities for sailing, horseriding, tennis, and river- and sea fishing, not to mention two award-winning golf courses, are all within 30 minutes' drive of the property.

Walkers and their dogs will appreciate the attractions of miles of quiet lanes, footpaths, bridleways, and the renowned South Devon Coast Path, while stargazers will glory in the complete absence of artificial light, which makes the Milky Way regularly visible with the naked eye. The area is hugely popular with birdwatchers: Start Point is on a major migration route, Slapton Ley...
Getting around
Our nearest railway station is Totnes, some 40 minutes' drive away. It is on the main line between London and Penzance, which means hourly trains in both directions. The journey time to London Paddington is approximately 3 hours. Public buses run from Totnes station to Kingsbridge and Dartmouth, our nearest towns, and the Route 3 bus, which runs from Dartmouth to Kingsbridge and then on to Plymouth, stops in the village of Chillington, a mile from the farm. Most visitors come to Cotmore by car; we are approximately 50 minutes south east of Plymouth and some 70 minutes south west of Exeter. Once arrived, walking and cycling are popular ways to get around.

How to get there
Airport: Exeter: 72.0 km
Railway: Totnes: 24.0 km
Ferry: Plymouth: 50.0 km
From Kingsbridge follow the A379 towards Dartmouth. At Carehouse Cross mini-roundabout in Stokenham take the third exit towards Beesands, Prawle, and East Portlemouth. Follow this road for a mile or so as it bears sharp right. After cresting the hill you will see on the right-hand side Cotmore House, followed by Restcot, and Old Cotmore Farm; ignore them all. Continue for about 200 metres until you reach a small, unsigned lane on the right – take this turning (if you reach Beeson Pool Cross on the left, you’ve missed it). A few hundred metres along this lane, a hanging sign on your right marks the entrance to the farm. For Rose Cottage and Appletree Cottage, turn right at the top of the drive and proceed slowly down into the farm courtyard.
