About The Hayloft

The Hayloft is a gorgeous period cottage (one of three on site) providing luxury 5-Star Gold accommodation for up to four people in two bedrooms. The peaceful location, just two miles from Totnes and within easy reach of both the River Dart and beaches of Torbay and the South Hams, it is perfect for a holiday in any season.

A holiday in Devon is always a top choice! Not only does it have some of the most beautiful coast and countryside in the South West, but the wealth of amenities and attractions make it easy for everyone to relax and have fun. The valley around the River Dart is a haven for birds and wildlife, and there are some wonderful walks and bike rides from the cottage door. The river flows through the nearby village of Stoke Gabriel, giving opportunities for riverside walks, sailing, canoeing, crabbing and fishing, while the coast is only a ten-minute drive from the cottage.

In addition to walking, cycling, fishing and sailing, energetic visitors can play golf, tennis, horse ride, surf, swim in the ocean or a seawater pool. If that wasn't enough to keep you happily occupied, nearby Devon attractions include the award-winning Paignton Zoo and National Trust properties like Greenway House and Coleton Fishacre.

Two miles from the cottage, the medieval market town of Totnes is full of excellent independent retailers, cafes and pubs housed in buildings built by the Normans and the Tudors. The butcher has been selling locally reared meat since 1788 and there is a Riverford Organic shop on the High Street alongside fantastic boutiques and homewares shops. Totnes has a mainline train station linking the town with places like Plymouth and Penzance, so it is easy to explore the wider area without using the car.

The Hayloft can be booked individually or together with one or two other award-winning properties to accommodate up to 14 people, making Aish Cross ideal for a fun-filled holiday or celebration with your extended family and friends.

Location (Devon)

The Hayloft is a fantastic example of how skilful craftspeople can transform an old stabling into a 5-Star award-winning holiday cottage. The owners want to ensure their guests feel relaxed and comfortable as soon as they arrive, with welcoming touches like high-quality bed linen and towels, a welcome hamper full of local goodies, and a Devon Cream Tea on arrival. A range of equipment for babies and young children, and a dog-friendly kit.

Accommodation is split over two levels and comprises:

Downstairs:

  • Open-plan living and dining area with thick stone walls, solid oak beams, and a wood-burning stove in the fireplace. Plush sofas make the perfect place to put your feet up and relax with a good book, to watch the Smart TV, or to use the cottage WiFi and your tablet or laptop to immerse yourself in your favourite 'boxset'. The solid wood dining table seats four people, with the owners able to provide a high chair if it is required. Underfloor heating keeps the cottage feeling cosy even on a chilly winter night. Glass French doors open into the garden.
  • Through an archway, a fitted kitchen keeps cooking separate from the living area without isolating the chef. High-quality appliances and a good complement of utensils and equipment, including a dishwasher, make self-catering a pleasure.
  • There is a fully equipped Laundry room (shared by the three cottages).

Upstairs:

  • Master bedroom with a kingsized (5ft-wide) elegant wooden bed, bedside tables, a chest of drawers and a dressing table, and the room also has a wall-mounted TV.
  • Second bedroom also with a kingsize bed and a wall-mounted TV.
  • Bathroom with a Jacuzzi bath, walk-in shower, WC and handbasin.

Outside: The Hayloft is one of three lovely self-catering cottages at Aish Cross that share the use of the acre-sized garden. There are barbecue facilities and off-street parking including use of an EV charging point. There is also the Island Garden across the road which is for the sole use of the guests, housing a BBQ Lodge (seats 15) and outside seating with spectacular views of the surrounding countryside.

Additional Information: Well-behaved dogs are welcome with prior agreement from the owner. All utilities, sheets and bath towels are provided. Short breaks are possible outside of the summer holidays, depending on availability. Smoking is not permitted.
