Blues and whites set the tone from the comfy sofas to the laid-back bedrooms. Just a few minutes in any direction and you’re among the verdant, undulating hills; the ragged cliffs; sandy beaches and picturesque coastal towns.
From the moment you enter Pippin Cottage, you feel the bright and airy freshness of this much-loved home set over three floors. Contemporary and comforting styling is delivered with a welcoming lightness of touch, with the nautical tones throughout reflecting the area’s rich maritime spirit. Two sofas in the lounge area invite you to gather and reminisce about the day’s adventures. One of the sofas can be made out as a double bed, but only for occasional use (Guests should request the sofa bed linen prior to their arrival). The lines of the greyed oak flooring then lead you to the perfectly-equipped galley kitchen.
Up to the middle floor, you’ll find a twin bedroom and the family shower room. Ascend again to the master bedroom, set into the eaves with truly outstanding views of the rolling hills reaching for the sky in the stunning South Hams - a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
Outside, the quaint walled garden has decking and a seating area to take in the fresh Devon air including a coal barbeque.
No additional visitors please unless prior consent has been confirmed.
Up to a maximum of two, well behaved dogs allowed. Guests must ensure dogs are NEVER left at the property alone, and discouraged from going upstairs. Out of respect for our neighbours, we cannot accept dogs that bark excessively.
The cottage is semidetached, and in a residential area, please respect our neighbours regarding noise levels, especially at night.
Prior to checking out, for the safety of everyone, please strip all beds and place in the laundry bag provided along with used towels and tea towels.
Thank you for your understanding.
There are two steps up to the front door. The lounge-diner is on the ground floor, with a flight of stairs to the first bedroom and a further flight of stairs to the second-floor master bedroom. The garden decking has one step down to the street beyond.
