Cottage
Island House boasts an enviable position in a beautiful rural location and a large fully enclosed garden with a patio. The property was tastefully and thoroughly renovated in 2014. Island House is set in the popular picture-postcard village of Stokenham, with its thatched cottages and overlooks the child friendly village green. The nearest beaches can be enjoyed less than a mile away. The South West Coast Path, the longest footpath in Britain, passes close to the village and provides superb walking through stunning and dramatic countryside. Nearby Kingsbridge is a busy market town distinguished by fine Tudor and Georgian buildings, with a largely Elizabethan colonnaded Shambles. A summer ferry runs from here to the sailing and holiday resort of Salcombe, whose calm waters are strewn with ...Island House boasts an enviable position in a beautiful rural location and a large fully enclosed garden with a patio. The property was tastefully and thoroughly renovated in 2014. Island House is set in the popular picture-postcard village of Stokenham, with its thatched cottages and overlooks the child friendly village green. The nearest beaches can be enjoyed less than a mile away. The South West Coast Path, the longest footpath in Britain, passes close to the village and provides superb walking through stunning and dramatic countryside. Nearby Kingsbridge is a busy market town distinguished by fine Tudor and Georgian buildings, with a largely Elizabethan colonnaded Shambles. A summer ferry runs from here to the sailing and holiday resort of Salcombe, whose calm waters are strewn with small craft, with the ruined Fort Charles at the entrance to the harbour injecting a touch of romance. Just east of Island House approximately 1m away is the lagoon of the Slapton Ley nature reserve which supports herons, terns, widgeon and great crested grebes. Less than ten miles along the coast is Dartmouth, which is one of the most popular and picturesque tourist destinations in Devon, as it's not only close to the sea, but it's also situated on the River Dart. Further afield is the unique resort of Torquay, where the small marina can seem almost Mediterranean, especially at night when coloured lights festoon the harbour. The ground floor of the property is all on one level and comprises a hall which runs through the property. The hall provides access to new kitchen overlooking the rear private garden. The dining room can be accessed through double doors from the kitchen or from the Hall. The sitting room is comfortably furnished and includes a flat screen TV and DVD. The bathroom has a full size bath with shower over. The two front bedrooms which both have a sea view have double beds. Whilst both rear bedrooms are arranged as twin rooms, one of which can be set up as double. All four bedrooms are well appointed and a good size. The first floor is completed by a WC. There is a further put up bed that can be used to accommodate a ninth visitor if required.More

The house was wonderfully situated for exploring quaint villages and beautiful coves. The house itself was well equipped in a small village with adequate space for all our family which was three generations. All the family enjoyed our stay and wouldn't hesitate to come back.
