Cotmore Farm offers a warm welcome to discerning holidaymakers in three sympathetically and ecologically restored farm buildings, recently converted into stylish and luxurious holiday accommodation, and finished to the very highest specifications in natural and where possible local materials. Rose Cottage is situated at the heart of the farm, hidden behind a stone wall covered in climbing roses, clematis and honeysuckle, and reached through an arched gateway. Its jewel-like garden is completely private, filled with trees, shrubs and fragrant climbers, with a small herb garden for guests' use, a barbecue, and a patio offering glimpses of the sea at Beesands to the southeast. Three sets of French doors give access to the cottage, filling it with light whatever the weather. Inside, heated slate floors, individually controllable in each room, and stylish oak furniture create an atmosphere of comfortable luxury. From the entrance hall, a rustic oak door leads right to the bedroom, where an oak-framed double bed with pocket-sprung mattress is flanked by oak bedside tables with stay-cool LED reading lamps. Opposite the bed an alcove hides a large vanity basin and mirrored cabinet. Next to that, an obscure glazed door leads to the marble tiled bathroom, with its giant walk-in shower. French doors mean you can walk straight out from the bedroom to take breakfast in the cottage's private garden. To the left of the hall is the living room and the compact but fully equipped oak kitchen. A comfy leather sofa and flat screen TV add further pampering touches, while an efficient woodburner ensures the cottage stays snug whatever the weather. Here too French doors allow direct access to the garden, a haven for the birds that regularly visit our many feeders – we even supply a guide so you can identify them yourself. Foodies will appreciate the proximity of some of Devon's finest gastropubs and restaurants, while walkers (and their dogs) will not want for new routes to explore, with direct access from the farm gate to a network of quiet lanes, footpaths, bridleways, and the superb South Devon Coast Path.

About Piers Spence
Cotmore is a 17th century house surrounded by 13 acres of land that was already a farm more than a thousand years ago. It is a welcoming place that is home to Piers, Sue, three teenagers aged 15-19, some cats, and a small, very friendly, very bouncy dog. We moved here from south-east England in 2011, with the aim of establishing an environment where others could enjoy the kind of holiday we remember from our own childhoods in Ireland and Cornwall. We have converted barns and outbuildings that provide stylish and luxurious self-catering accommodation at the heart of the farm. We keep horses, Large Black and Berkshire pigs, Shetland sheep, and free-range chickens, from which we have a plentiful supply of eggs, sausages, bacon, and hams. And living just a mile from the spectacular south Devon coast, we take full advantage of our fabulous seaside location to walk, swim, surf and kayak.
Piers Spence purchased this Cottage in 2011

A comfortable and cosy retreat
We had a very enjoyable and relaxing week in Rose Cottage and a warm welcome from the owners. Comfortable accommodation of a high standard, the cottage felt quite secluded, despite being part of a group of farm buildings and holiday cottages.
Suited our break very relaxing enjoyed the cottage.
A lovely cottage, very comfortable and clean with all the expected amenities and more
We found Rose Cottage very comfortable, warm and cosy.
A wonderful restful week in South Devon.
Rose Cottage proved to be an excellent base for us to explore South Hams, revisiting several old haunts.
Comfy cottage - lovely area
The South Hams is delightful and Cotmore Farm was a perfect, quiet place to explore from. Our hosts were also very kind and provided a very welcome "welcome basket".
Cottage had everything you could ask for
Lovely cottage and perfect location for exploring the area.
