Rocombe Thatch is a delightful, detached, thatched stone and cob holiday cottage in the hamlet of Middle Rocombe, together with a detached green oak annexe. The cottage has a secluded, mature, enclosed, lawned garden. There is also a small pond area and a stream running by the side of the property – both are fenced. This is an ideal base for families to holiday together or friends to celebrate. The annexe offers its own independent living area and kitchen, although there is plenty of space in the main house to have meals and social gatherings for all guests. The property is in a very tranquil setting and is an ideal location in which to relax. There is plenty of wildlife in the garden with rabbits, badgers and the occasional deer or otter visiting, plenty of bird watching and many walks can be taken from the door. Carp ponds next to the property can be fished with permits available locally. The cottage is ideally situated in a secluded rural spot for exploring the great local beaches such as Ness Beach at Shaldon or the wonderful beaches of the South Hams. Nearby Stokeinteignhead and Combeinteignhead are delightful historic villages with great pubs and restaurants; Torquay is only 5 miles away. There are local golf courses and for those who enjoy riding and walking, Dartmoor is within 10 miles. There are many miles of coastline, cliffs, coves, beaches and walks in the immediate vicinity, which has a climate that belongs somewhere much further south. There are opportunities for surfing, swimming, diving, sailing, sea-angling and wonderful opportunities to study the natural wildlife at leisure. From the nearby coastline, stunning views are to be enjoyed across the bay, out over the English Channel, along the 40 miles towards Lyme Bay and Portland Bill. Torquay is an ideal base from which to visit Dartmouth, Totnes and Plymouth. Dawlish Warren or Paignton Zoo are only 10 miles, or take a trip further afield to Exeter, the ideal place to browse in antique shops, walk and cycle, take a relaxing boat trip or find something good to eat. There are also many NT properties all waiting to be explored. Local shop and pub ¾ mile.
