A cosy and comfortably furnished cottage, presented and equipped to a good standard throughout and with lovely views across fields and farmland. Just a few yards from the Tower Inn in the pretty village of Slapton, five miles from Kingsbridge, Tower Cottage is ideally located for families or couples (with or without dogs) looking to explore the South Hams and the stunning Start Bay coastline. The well-equipped accommodation features two sitting areas each with its own woodburning stove plus outside terraces to the front and rear, the latter with steps leading directly to the pub!
LOCATION The cottage stands in the very heart of Slapton village, just half a mile or so from the coast and within easy reach of local beaches and amenities. The front aspect of the cottage overlooks the 14th Century village church whilst the rear terrace is just a few yards from the Tower Inn pub - a second pub (the Queens Arms) and village store are within a short walk. Slapton is a pretty, traditional Devon village (listed in the Domesday Book as 'Sladone') just 5 miles or so from Kingsbridge and 7 miles from the famous naval town of Dartmouth.
VIEWS Lovely views from most rooms across the churchyard to fields and farmland beyond.
