A whitewashed rural cottage with stream
Whitewashed Gara Mill Cottage, Slapton is the ideal luxury holiday home for groups and extended families with five bedrooms to sleep ten in spacious comfort. The homely farmhouse kitchen will be the social hub with its pine table, stone walls and Aga-style range. There's even a luxury coffee maker for kickstarting the day. Everyone can pick their favourite bedroom: two have king-size beds, two have twin beds and another has a double bed. The family bathroom has a bath and separate shower with a second bathroom offering a roll-top bath.
Mealtimes and gossip can be shared in the beamed dining area with rural views before putting your feet up around the log burner in one of the comfortable sitting rooms.
Set in a peaceful valley, Gara Mill Cottage, Slapton is surrounded by woodland and fields – a delight for children of all ages to explore. Play in the meadow or follow the stream and nature trails to the tranquil goat park. Slapton Sands is just a few minutes' drive away and nature lovers can spot visiting birds at Slapton Ley Nature Reserve. Historic Dartmouth (six miles away) offers black-and-white buildings housing upscale restaurants and shops. Take the ferry upriver to Greenway, much-loved home of Agatha Christie, or hop aboard the Dartmouth Steam Railway.
