My husband and I converted this barn ourselves along with other family members in 2004. I grew up in a small place called Richings Park, which is not far from Slough, moving to the South West when I was 16 with my family. My husband is originally from the North with family still in Cheshire & Cumbria. Having been in sales and promotions for most of his working life, the challenge of converting Wagtail Cottage was a great learning curve but a very enjoyable one. We hope that you appreciate Wagtail Cottage as much as we appreciated converting it.

Samantha purchased this cottage in 2005

We converted Wagtail as we live quite close so we are able to maintain the cottage to the specification we want.

Wagtail has lots of space with a hugh hall area and some lovely features including half moon window and high ceiling Dining room. Has to be stayed in to be appreciated and absolutely great for family parties.

Lovely private site in the country

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Aug 9, 2013

We took four grandchildren and a set of parents and we had a lovely stay. We selected Wagtail because of its size and facilities and we were not disappointed. The weather was mixed but the pool and games room were brilliant and when we were on site the children could come and go without a problem due to its private enclosed location. The cottage was very large and despite the numbers we never felt short of space. The location is beautiful and only about 20 mins from Torquay and Paignton. You will need a car to get to the nearest shops, pubs and restaurants but that was a minor issue given the setting. I would recommend this site to anyone, particularly if you have children but want somewhere private.

Beautiful location and great facilities

We took four grandchildren and a set of parents to Wagtail cottage for a week. We selected this cottage because of the facilities, particularly on site swimming, games rooms, play areas and private setting. We were not disappointed. We had a few days with mixed weather and the children were easily entertained and the pool was superb. The property is massive so we never felt short of space and the facilities within it were perfect. 20 mins from Torquay or Paignton yet located in a private development that allowed the children to wander around in complete safety. The size of the site was also pleasing, quite mall and select but with a nice mix of people and other children that just allowed time to pass nicely. I recommend this site without reservation. You will need a car though to get to shops

Located close to the bustling town of Totnes and a 10 minute drive to the well connected town of Newton Abbot. A short drive will take you to the wonderful beaches of Bigbury, Blackpool Sands and Slapton, as well as the popular hot spots of Torbay with the No 1 Blue Flag Beaches. The attractive coastal ports of Dartmouth & Salcombe are well worth a visit. Follow the scenic route via Moretonhampstead and Chagford to reach the ever popular Dartmoor and it's many outdoor activities. A must for anyone who appreciates the great outdoors!
