The Experience

Couples with or without children will be comfortable here – cosy with a wood-burner in winter, outside in the colourful garden on sunny days. Thoughtful owners have provided everything you’ll need – the kitchen is impressive, with espresso machine, and you get slippers and White Company robes, towels and bed linen. 

Bridlepaths criss-cross the surrounding countryside; go riding from a stables ten minutes away or be walking on Dartmoor in 15. Helpful local property manager Nicki is on the end of the phone if you need anything.

This is a foodie area and there are plenty of up-to-date recommendations – from the village pubs to trendy Totnes restaurants. For a family day on the beach it’s a forty-minute drive to Bantham or Blackpool Sands on the south Devon coast.

A beautiful, bright cottage tucked away in a friendly village with a community shop and local pubs just a short stroll away. There's plenty to explore locally, a choice of fantastic restaurants within easy driving reach and of course the wonderfully relaxing cottage to return to at the end of the day.

The neighbourhood

Cheyne Cottage is in the village of Broadhempston with its lively community shop/post office/library/two-table café, run by volunteers, and two pubs: the Coppa Dolla is a minutes’ walk, The Monk’s Retreat five. Dartington is a 15-minute drive - try the Cott Inn. Totnes is a shade more, with good independent shops and restaurants like the Curator (Italian) and Gather (all things foraged). The Riverford Field Kitchen is a 15-minute drive, so is Dartmoor.

Local points of interest from Sophie Martin

  • Broadhempston is between the South Hams and Dartmoor, both recognised as Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Enjoy stunning coastlines, breathtaking countryside, quaint villages & vibrant market towns from this tranquil village, away from the crowds.
  • In nearby Staverton travel by steam train along the River Dart between Buckfastleigh and Totnes, Sunday Lunch & Afternoon Tea available on board! Trail the river on foot by Buckfast Abbey or enjoy dinner by the riverside at The Maltsters Arms in Tuckenhay.
  • On Dartmoor visit moorland towns Ashburton, Buckfastleigh and Chagford, hike to Hay Tor, enjoy woodland and waterfalls at Canonteign Falls & Lydford Gorge. With horse riding, water sports, bike trails & butterflies parks it's a nature lovers paradise.
  • Take a scenic drive to South Hams beaches and South West Coastal Path. We love Bantham, Hope Cove & South Milton Sands. Venus Cafes serve organic local produce at Blackpool Sands & Bigbury on Sea. From Bigbury beach take the sea tractor to Burgh Island.
  • Totnes boasts a castle, markets & indie shops, also boat trips to Dartmouth. Visit Sharpham Vineyard or explore Dartington Hall Estate, Deer Park and shops, check out their program of events & festivals. We recommend day trips to Dartmouth & Salcombe too.
  • Children will love the choice of animal farms, adventure parks and visiting Paignton Zoo. At the end of your day pick up organic treats at Ben's Farm Shop, or enjoy the many foodie pubs & restaurants, a list of recommendations awaits you at the cottage.


Sophie Martin

After 25 years based in London with busy careers in fashion and film, Sophie and Aidan were ready to hunt for their perfect country retreat. They both grew up in the countryside and Cheyne Cottage, in its pretty village, was exactly what they were looking for. They’ve restored it with huge attention to detail and want you to have just as relaxing and enjoyable a time there as they do. Knowledgeable Nicki is your contact during your stay.
