Bramleigh Cottage enjoys some of the most beautiful countryside views in South Devon. Tucked away in a peaceful spot near the village of Woodleigh, it easily sleeps four and is as comfortable for families as it is for couples being a cosy retreat all year round.
The nearest town to Bramleigh Cottage is Kingsbridge, a short drive away. The attractive market town has a wide variety of independent shops, pubs and cafes, and it is a good place to stock up with essentials as well as to buy locally produced ingredients for home-cooked meals. Kingsbridge is on the Salcombe Estuary and is a favourite destination for people who enjoy walking and sailing. Stop by the Kingsbridge Information Centre on Town Square for maps and local information that will help you make the most of your holiday.
Dartmouth, Salcombe and Totnes are all fantastic destinations for a day out and thriving communities of artists, galleries and antique shops with a wealth of excellent shops, pubs, restaurants and cafes. Plymouth is only a half-hour drive from Bramleigh Cottage, offering excellent shopping, a rich naval history and superb views. The bustling harbour area of the Barbican has numerous good places for breakfast, lunch or dinner, particularly if you have worked up a healthy appetite walking around the city and seeing the sights.
Speaking of walking, there are seemingly endless footpaths that criss-cross the countryside and hug the coast, leading walkers through lush green fields and charming villages, through the South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and around the gorgeous Devon coastline. A particularly lovely walk leads from near the cottage along the River Avon, via the disused railway line, to Avon Mill Garden Centre with craft shops and an excellent cafe - a great place for a cream tea!
Devon’s most beautiful beaches are within easy reach of Bramleigh Cottage, including Hope Cove, Blackpool Sands, Thurlestone and Torcross. The Dart Valley Railway and South Devon Railways are perennial favourites, as is Paignton Zoo and Woodlands Theme Park and cruises along the River Dart and to Torbay. There are stately homes and National Trust managed properties and gardens including Agatha Christie's Greenway House and the beautiful Coleton Fishacre to visit at your leisure. With a cottage as comfortable as Bramleigh, you will be able to relax and enjoy every minute of your holiday in Devon.
