The tree-lined approach is steep and spectacular; the cottage sits in 11 wondrous acres which overlook the River Dart and Sharpham Estate (local vineyard.) Richard is a gifted gardener and happy to guide you round his fascinating gardens with its magical woodland trail and enviable range of hydrangeas. Find a quiet spot to read or absorb the tranquility with tea on the terrace. The house itself is comfortable and calm – rooms look over the sweeping valley and garden. The old-fashioned twin room has a balcony and large, recently refurbished bathroom with a walk in shower. The pretty village, vineyard café and pub are a short walk away.
