About Garden House at Gitcombe Estate

Garden House at Gitcombe Estate is a charming stone holiday cottage in a beautiful setting. It's larger than the name implies, sleeping up to eight people and an infant in four bedrooms with accommodation recognised by Visit England as 5-Star Gold standard. The layout works well for families or larger groups with guests enjoying a private garden as well as shared use of the estate's 14 acres of grounds, heated indoor and outdoor swimming pools, outdoor play area, games room, and tennis court. The estate is just over a mile from the South Hams village of Cornworthy in the Dart Estuary, within easy reach of Dartmouth, Totnes, and the gorgeous beaches of the South Devon coast.

You'll struggle to find a more scenic spot than Gitcombe Estate. It's perfect for a holiday at any time of the year as the landscape is as diverse as it is beautiful. Wander along the countryside paths to the local pubs or explore the ancient green lanes linking towns and villages and hollowed out by centuries of use. The South West Coast Path is around five miles away for keen walkers, while mountain bikers can challenge themselves on the hills and moors of Dartmoor National Park. The Dart Estuary has miles of footpaths, cycling routes and bridleways, as does the South Hams Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Pack a picnic and head for beaches like Blackpool Sands, Broadsands, Slapton Sands, and Strete Gate if it's sunny. Local businesses offer watersport equipment and bike hire to help you get the most of your time here.

Day trips can include sightseeing on the English Riviera where you can take a ride on the Ferris Wheel in Torbay, walk along the pier in Paignton, and watch the boats coming and going from Brixham's busy harbour. Local attractions include Paignton Zoo, National Trust Greenway, and Woodlands Family Theme Park. Totnes and Dartmouth have a wide choice of places to eat, drink and shop. Enthusiastic eaters will love having six farm shops, three vineyards, and seven breweries within half an hour's drive of the cottage. You can eat well at every meal whether you self-cater or choose to dine out at one of the region's fantastic restaurants or pubs.

Garden House is a wonderful holiday home in all seasons, whether you're enjoying summer sunshine or escaping for a Christmas catch-up with friends.
