The School Masters Cottage

Let Holiday Cottage United Kingdom, England, South West, Devon


This 150 year old, grade II listed, Tudor style stone cottage is a real gem. It is a beautifully restored building of great character that has a wealth of history woven into its walls.

With its own private courtyard, an elevated lawn with old apple trees and blackberry briers, this is the perfect rural setting for a relaxed break.

Inside you will find a country style kitchen where you can prepare something special to serve in the rather grand dining room, which has an open fire place and reassuringly sturdy furniture. There is also a delightful lounge with bay window and fire place, where you can put your feet up after a day's exploration on the South West Coast Path.

The two bedrooms are of equally generous proportions and share a well appointed family bathroom across the landing. Enjoy the country views from the master bedroom where exposed beams and joinery add to the experience.

A short walk from the house is the excellent Churston Farm Shop plus a garden store and popular café. The ferry to Dartmouth is a five minute drive and this is one of the best locations possible for reaching all the attractions of Torbay, including the rustic charm of Brixham with its growing reputation as a gastro hub. The Churston Steam Railaway is a five minute walk, whilst Churston Golf Club is a mile away, with pitch and put and go karts.

For a relaxed evening out, take the 10 minute stroll to Churston Court, one of the area's most celebrated and ancient inns, and the perfect setting for a pint of local ale and a ploughman's! Another 5 minutes walk through the woods will lead you to Elberry Cove.

The School Masters Cottage is annexed to The Old School House which is an entirely separate three bedroom cottage of the same style, quality and architectural merit. Both properties may be let together to provide larger families or groups of friends with four double and one twin rooms.
