About Tim Taylor
We live in London. We had holidays in the South Hams for a few years and then decided to buy a house in the area. We use the cottage regularly out of the main holiday season. This is a photo of Rachel and Tim with our dog Woody at Mothecombe beach
Tim Taylor purchased this Barn in 2007
Why Tim Taylor chose Loddiswell
Stable corner is ideally situated to access all of the South Hams giving you flexibility what ever the weather. Our comfortable cottage in a quite location with expansive views will ensure you have a restful holiday. We are a maximum of 20-25 minutes from Totnes, Dartmouth, Salcombe, Buckfast, Dartmoor and any of the South Hams beaches. In 40 minutes you can be in Exeter or Plymouth. This flexibility isn't available if you are in the towns and villages towards the end of the South Hams, so gives you alternatives whatever the weather.
What makes this Barn unique
Stable corner is all on one floor. Apart from 2 steps up to the level with the bedrooms and bathrooms there are no stairs. This make it ideal if one or more of your party has difficult with stairs. We have recently undertook a full refurbishment replacing the kitchen and bathrooms and redecorating. We pride ourselves on having one of the best equipped kitchens. Having stayed in cottages without a sharp knife or pan big enough to cook a meal for everyone, we have two Meile ovens plenty of pans, a knife sharpener and a salad spinner

Lovely Cottage in beautiful setting
Stable Cottage had everything we needed for a 3 night getaway near the coast. Very comfortable with a kitchen better equipped than mine at home! Welcome hamper a nice touch too. Enjoyed the games in the cupboard - although DVDs could do with a little updating. Lovely day out to Salcombe - do use the park and walk it's impossible to park in the town. Would love to come back one Summer.
RELAXING HOLIDAY SPOT
We spent the last week of the school summer holidays here and were very lucky with the weather. The children loved the tennis court and outdoor pool and the garden was great to relax in, a real suntrap to enjoy a sundowner. Our dog Bonnie was able to wander in and out freely as the garden is completely dog proof! The barn was great, everything we needed was provided, even wetsuits and crabbing buckets!
All in all a great break and in a lovely spot, very relaxing and peaceful but not far away from all the beaches.
Thanks for your review. I am really glad you enjoyed staying there as much as we do and our attempts at making stable corner a home from home are paying off.
fantastic holiday let in Devon
I should preface this review by stating I could have had a free holiday in my holiday home in Dorset but as we wanted accomodation for 2 families and a change of scenery, we opted to fork out and pay for somehwere different. I stayed in this barn conversion last week with my family (2 adults, 2 kids) and some friends (2 more adults, 2 more kids!) - it housed all 8 of us comfortably. When we arrived, we were quite taken aback by a number of things. The standout benefits of this cottage are as follows:
1. Shed with table football, buckets and spades, crab lines, washing machine, tumble dryer, dartboard etc. Very handy!
2. the views are gorgeous - spent one night at dusk watching a buzzard sit in a tree waiting for the rabbits to come out! Stunning.
3. the living area is spacious and made to feel home from home - dvd, digital tv, plenty of books, videos, games, and dvds for those rainy nights in
4. kitchen with dishwasher! Plus a wood burner for chilly nights.
5. 2 bathrooms ideal for 2 families
6. wonderfully comfortable memory foam mattress - I slept better away than I normally do at home!
7. digital radio - I love radio 6, so digital radio was a godsend
8. in summary this is a well decorated, very clean, and extremely well equipped cottage.
Given the facilties (I have never been on holiday where accomodation has dishwasher etc.!) this is a fantastic holiday let.
Couple with that, the beautiful building (a converted barn), the quiet location, the views etc... this is simply the best holiday in England I have had in years. I prefaced this review by stating I could have had a free holiday in an equally beautiful part of the country - Dorset - I made the right choice by paying good money to stay in this fine holiday cottage in Loddiswell. We will be going again I am sure.
Review of stable corner, July 2010
I'd recommend this property unreservedly. The house is spacious, beautifully furnished with a great open living/dining area. There is also a lovely outside dining are with BBQ which we used on the warmer evenings. It was in very good condition, clean and well maintained with all we needed in terms of utilities, entertainment etc. Outside the kids loved using the swimming pool and tennis court and playing in the garden. Tim couldn't have ben more helpful, providing additional information on things to do and dealing with the minor problems that did arise (toaster broke and replacement arrived next morning). Had a great week.
We had a very enjoyable holiday break, mid-February. The barn is beautifully furnished and extremely comfortable. We were able to get out and enjoy walks in the wonderful Devon landscape including Prawl Point and Dartmouth Castle, following directions in a book called 'Cream Tea Walks'! We ate like kings from the local Farm shop. Definitely want to come back again!
So lovely we've gone back.. and will again
My family's had two wonderful holidays staying at Stable Corner. We're 5 plus a dog and we had lots more room than we needed, everything was thoughtfully provided and of a lovely standard - nice bed linen, brilliantly equipped kitchen, great TV, and all spotless. The location is fantastic and on each holiday we've been spoilt for choice for days out at the beach, seaside village and town, moors, or just very locally around Loddiswell and wonderful local walks. The owners had provided thoughtful local info and suggestions and contact details, and the instructions for working things and finding the property and the key were all great. I'd totally recommend Stable Corner as a wonderful place to stay.
