Property type cottage

About the property

Sleeps 2, 4 poster bed, handpainted ceiling, woodburner, garden, countryside

Toad Hall Cottage is a quirky stone cottage and part of the old Middle Hutcherleigh farm where it originally served as a pigsty before being converted to an artists’ studio. It now offers charming self catering holiday accommodation for 2 in unique and beautiful open plan surroundings. Under the original hand painted ceiling you’ll find a 4 poster bed and a woodburner for cosy nights in, and unspoilt South Hams countryside that you are encouraged to explore on long walks with/without dogs.

Despite its remote rural location – birdsong and the odd tractor will be the only noises you’ll hear – Toad Hall Cottage is only 15 minutes’ drive from Totnes, Dartmouth and Kingsbridge and the many lovely beaches in the area. Dartmouth Golf and Country Club with pool is near as well as many excellent pubs and restaurants. It's the perfect place to get away from it all.

Fantastic little getaway

  • 5 of 5

Loved Toad Hall Cottage. From the moment we pulled into the drive we felt relaxed. You couldn't want for anything more. Warm, cosy,comfortable everything wrapped up in a quirky little cottage. No wifi was a bonus as we spent quality time talking, laughing,reading the many books and just chilling in front of the log burner. The map found in the basket was a godsend. It was fun navigating our way through the country roads. We visited many places and walked the coast line which was both rugged and beautiful. So much history to read about on the many information boards dotted around. The Forteque arms was a very warm and welcoming pub with great food. We even got invited to join in the quiz very funny. I would recommend this lovely cottage and maybe one day go back and stay again

Perfect cottage for two

  • 4 of 5

Stayed three nights at the cottage making use of nearby Hope Cove. We took food and drink but everything else we needed was to hand. Most of our daytime was spent out so we only ate and slept in the cottage. Comy bed, snug wee cottage, warming fire and peace! No wifi but that suited us. The cottage is a great base for exploring the local area. Twenty minute drive to the coast and a lovely drive at that. Thanks to Jon and Nicole for their helpful communication.

Peaceful cozy cottage

  • 5 of 5

Quirky quiet retreat, well equipped with all you need. The ceiling is painted with a mural depicting birds and flowers. To the front of the cottage is a small enclosed seating area and a large communal garden shared between the few cottages is just 20 metres away in a beautiful orchard.

V comfy bed and setting, John and jane

Außergewöhnlich und ruhig

  • 5 of 5

Die Ferienwohnung und ihre Lage waren für uns ziemlich außergewöhnlich. Von beidem waren wir aber begeistert! Es hat auch alles funktioniert und wir haben dort sehr schöne Tage verbracht.
