Primrose Cottage (Chillington)
New for 2013
A comfortably furnished and homely 18th Century cottage, presented and equipped to a high standard throughout. The extended accommodation links together two buildings to create a spacious bolt hole and base from which to explore the South Hams in general and the nearby Start Bay coastline in particular.
LOCATION The cottage stands in the very heart of Chillington village alongside the Kingsbridge-Dartmouth coastal road, just 1.5 miles or so from local beaches such as Slapton Sands. The village shop/post office is immediately opposite whilst the local pub (The Open Arms) is just a 100 yards away. Kingsbridge can be reached in 10 minutes or so by car whilst the famous naval town of Dartmouth is approximately 7 miles further along the stunning coastal road.
ENTRANCE Accessed from the road a gate opens onto the garden path and a stable door leads into the open-plan ground floor accommodation.
SITTING ROOM This cosy reception room with traditional painted beams has an attractive open fireplace with stone surround and slate hearth, two comfortable double sofas, two armchairs, coffee table, widescreen TV with BT Vision and DVD player.
DINING ROOM The adjacent dining area has a polished wooden table, chairs seating six, large multi-fuel stove (providing solid fuel central heating), and CD hi-fi system.
KITCHEN/BREAKFAST ROOM A door leads through to a galley-style kitchen which is equipped with a range of fitted units, electric cooker, integral fridge/freezer and dishwasher, microwave and breakfast bar with four stools. There is also a small square dining table with four chairs. Beyond the kitchen is a small UTILITY AREA with washing machine, tumble dryer and stable door out to the garden/terrace.
BEDROOMS Four in total - three on the first floor of the main cottage. Two double bedrooms each have a 4'6" double bed, wardrobe and drawers, whilst a single room has a 3' bed and drawers.
