My 5 year old son and I have stayed in several locations in this part of Devon - Dittisham, Brixham etc, we love the area. But I really liked how peaceful and friendly Cornworthy was, more laid back, and I would definitely go back. We started to find and visit new places form here and it was nice to be able to do easy walks right from the house, down to the river. We always drive to Blackpool sands beach, but Pennywell Farm was a new one and my son loved it. There's a great kids holiday club at Dartington (humpty dumpty nursery) my son love it (camp fires and marshmellows go down a treat) while I went to the spa at the nearby Dartmouth Hotel and Golf Club. I walked down to Tuckenhay which was lovely also.
Middle Cottage was really nice, lovely wooden floors and furniture throughout. It was handy having a bit of outdoor space just outside the kitchen. The kitchen/living area seemed more spacious than the photos. The second bedroom upstairs is definitely small though. There are fields etc all around, it was very peaceful. You can drop stuff off right in front and then can park your car a few yards up the hill. The heating was great morning and evening. I was in during the daytimes and couldn't work it out, so just put an extra jumper on and it was fine, even though it was really cold and windy outside. There were lots of extra things there that were really nice and useful - olive oil, milk, tea, coffee, jam and more that you often end up having to buy when renting. There were scones and clotted cream for our arrival. The owners were really lovely and nice. Dart Valley Cottages are always on the end of the phone and helpful, whatever comes up, like trying to find the cottage in the dark, or locking myself out.
We spent a terrific week at Primrose Cottage in late October. The house itself is full of historic charm; it's well appointed; and very comfortable. We particularly enjoyed the kitchen and the lovely open fireplace. It's also close to some wonderful scenery and lovely coastal paths for walking. The road outside the house can get busy with traffic to Hope Cove, but overall it was very peaceful and we enjoyed a perfect week in beautiful Devon.
