Maristow Cottage at Gitcombe Estate is perfect for families. The three-bedroom holiday cottage sleeps six people with an open plan living area and a private patio terrace. A mezzanine snug has a single sofa-bed to increase accommodation to seven people. It's one of nine fantastic self-catering properties on the Gitcombe Estate in Cornworthy, where guests enjoy not only a high standard of accommodation in their cottage but excellent amenities, including indoor and outdoor heated swimming pools with changing facilities, a steam room and a sauna. There are also indoor and outdoor play areas and 14 acres of landscaped grounds to enjoy.
Cornworthy is a small village on the edge of the Dart Estuary, with a village pub and gorgeous green lanes leading into the South Hams countryside. It's blissfully quiet yet only a short drive from Totnes and Dartmouth, both of which have many places to eat, drink and shop. Totnes has a popular farmers market on the third Sunday of the month, while Dartmouth has one on the second Saturday of the month. There are half a dozen farm shops within half an hour's drive and local breweries and places like Sharpam Vineyard and Cheese. Every meal will be one to savour with so much delicious produce on the doorstep.
Local attractions include Woodlands Family Theme Park, Paignton Zoo, and the Dartmouth Steam Railway and River Boat. Totnes, Dartmouth, and Berry Pomeroy all have castles cared for by English Heritage and lovely parklands and gardens like those at Grade II listed Dartington Hall. The closest beach to Maristow Cottage is at Blackpool Sands, where you can also pick up the South West Coast Path for a scenic walk to Strete and Stoke Fleming. Torquay, Brixham and the beautiful English Riviera are half an hour away, while Dartmoor National Park is even closer. Whether you like canoeing or climbing, far-reaching views or Ferris wheels, you'll find it here.
