We had a very pleasant stay at Alice Cottage. Perfect location, 10 minutes walk to the beach and about 30 minutes walk to our favourite pub The Green Dragon (they make the best salted caramel cheesecake in the world!). The cottage is in a quiet area, equipped with everything you need, very well maintained and has a fabulous garden. Shops and supermarkets are about 10 minutes drive, in Dartmouth, a beautiful town where you find everything you need. We took our bikes with us and conquered a few hills! (if you are into cycling this is a great place to ride).
We would stay there again. Recommended.
Surpassed all expectations
Gorgeous cottage with lovely garden, located a short walk from a blue flag beach - what more could you ask for?!
We absolutely loved staying there and will def be booking to stay in future.
The property was fantastic
The property was gorgeous. It have everything you could want for a perfect away from it all holiday. The area is stunning, a nice little wine merchant 200m away. Dartmouth a short drive. Blackpool sands a nice little stroll away. I can't think of a single thing that the house lacks. The cream tea on arrival was such a lovely touch. Big smiling faces all round. Thank you.
Alice Cottage is a little slice of heaven in South Devon. My family and I had the joy of spending an entire month in the property. It is tastefully kitted out with all you need for both a short holiday or a longer stay. My children loved the garden, building dens and enjoying make believe games. It's only 15 mins walk to Blackpool sands. Dartmouth is just a short journey up the road. We did some great walks along the SW coastal path. If you need peace and quite or time to reflect this is the ideal destination. We didn't want to leave.
Lovely, quiet location
This very clean cottage is well equipped with everything we could possibly. The back garden is natural and peaceful. We were delighted to be greeted by scones, jam, clotted cream and wine when we arrived. it would be best to have a small car to navigate the very narrow roads. The cottage was at times chilly as we felt hesitant to use the heating. Double bed a bit too small for us. Great location.
Absolutely loved the property and the location. Well equipped and spacious. Enjoyed the 'Winnie the Pooh' features that made it feel special. Could not criticise it in any way.
Alice Cottage is situated in South Devon in the picturesque South Hams in a valley, a 10 minute drive from Dartmouth with one of the finest natural harbours in England, and a short walk from Blackpool Sands beach and its amenities overlooking which you will find views rivalling those of the French Riviera. Nearby attractions include Dartmouth Castle, Britannia Royal Naval Collage, Greenway, former home of Agatha Christie with gardens overlooking the River Dart and Coleton Fishacre, a National Trust house and garden. For children we recommend Woodlands, a family theme park and the Paignton & Dartmouth Steam Railway. Dartmouth hosts a music festival in early May and a food festival, in October. Its famous regatta is held at the end of August. The town has a cinema and theatre, craft shops, cafes and boutiques, including the Harbour Bookshop, once owned by Christopher Robin. Slapton Sands, with its D-Day connections and nature reserve, ideal for bird watching lies to the west.
Blackpool Sands beach is consistently ranked one of the UK's top beaches with an excellent café, shop and water sports equipment for hire.
