About Burrator Cottage at Gitcombe Estate

Burrator Cottage at Gitcombe Estate is a place your whole family will love. Comfortably sleeping six people in three bedrooms, the mid-terrace self-catering cottage is set in 14 private acres with on-site amenities that include indoor and outdoor heated swimming pools, a games room, an all-weather sports court, and an adventure playground. It's in the small village of Cornworthy, a few miles from Totnes and Dartmoor, with a village pub within walking distance and easy access to fantastic walks, family-friendly bike rides, beautiful beaches, exciting attractions, and gorgeous countryside. What more could you want from your next holiday?

Cornworthy is an ancient village around seven miles from shops, cafes, bars and other amenities in both Totnes and Dartmouth. You can access beautiful green lanes directly from the Gitcombe Estate or take a short drive to the nearest beach, Blackpool Sands, to follow the South West Coast Path. The estate provides secure bicycle storage, and guests can also hire bikes locally to explore an extensive network of traffic-free cycling routes and bridleways. Stay close to the cottage and make good use of the swimming pools, play areas and Gitcombe's other excellent facilities, head to Dartmoor to go climbing, hiking, mountain biking and horse riding, or settle yourself on the sand and take the kids swimming and surfing on Devon's award-winning beaches.

There is a huge choice of attractions within a small radius, so planning fun-filled days is simple. Local attractions include Paignton Zoo, Babbacombe Model Village, and the English Riviera Wheel in Torquay. Treat the kids to a day at the Woodlands Family Theme Park, indulge your tastebuds at Sharpham Wine and Cheese, wander around the gardens at Dartington Hall, and pick up some local goodies at Totnes Market and Dartmouth Old Market. Take a sightseeing boat tour or book a 4WD Dartmoor Safari. Historic Plymouth is under an hour's drive, with many places to eat, drink, shop and sightsee.

Burrator Cottage is one of nine superb holiday homes on the Gitcombe Estate. Depending on availability, they can be booked together to accommodate separate families who want to holiday together without sharing a cottage.
