About Haytor Cottage at Gitcombe Estate

Haytor Cottage is a 4-Star self-catering cottage furnished with families in mind. The three-bedroom mid-terraced property is beautifully finished throughout, sleeping six people in three bedrooms with two bathrooms, a log burner and a private terrace. It's one of nine luxury cottages on the beautiful Gitcombe Estate in the South Hams village of Cornworthy, boasting 14 acres of landscaped grounds, indoor and outdoor heated swimming pools, an all-weather games court, and an adventure playground. It's a fantastic choice for a holiday as it's within a few miles of the English Riviera and Dartmoor National Park.

Cornworthy is a quiet village near the River Dart. It's perfect for a holiday as everything you could want is nearby. There is a village pub within walking distance or head to Totnes and Dartmouth where there is a fantastic choice of shops, cafes, bars, markets and other amenities just a short drive away. The historic naval city of Plymouth, with sights that include the famous Mayflower Steps and the beautifully restored Art Deco Tinside Lido overlooking the harbour, is less than an hour away, while on the doorstep, you have gorgeous rural walks through some of the most picturesque green lanes in the south-west. It's easy to get outdoors and be active during your stay at Haytor. In addition to the swimming pools, playground and sports court on-site, you can bring or hire a bike and cycle for miles, walk around the South West Coast Path, go swimming and surfing in the sea, sail and SUP along the River Dart, go horseriding or climbing on Dartmoor, play golf, and go fishing.

The magnificent English Riviera is half an hour's drive from the cottage. Stretching from Torquay to Brixham, its famous beaches are complemented by attractions that include Paignton Zoo, the Dartmouth Steam Railway, Kents Cavern and the UNESCO Global Geopark, Babbacombe Model Village, Dinosaur World, and the full-sized replica of Sir Francis Drake's Golden Hind. Book a sightseeing boat tour around the coast or a 4x4 safari through Dartmoor. There are adventure parks and farms, castles and stately homes, nature reserves and gardens - something for all weathers and seasons.
