Dartmouth Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Village Location. Pretty and private sunny garden, 2 bedrooms. River and Country Walks Nearby.

Bumble cottage is very comfortable with modern conveniences whilst retaining the atmosphere of an old property. The cottage is set on a quiet road off the main village street with private parking, a rarity in Devon. The sheltered position means that the garden becomes a real sun trap whilst the summerhouse gives views across to Dartmoor. In summer you can watch Ravens nesting close by and House Martins and Swallows wheeling overhead. Wonderful walks down to the River Dart accessible without getting into your car.

About Mrs Jenny Steele

My husband and I have recently retired and now have the time to focus our attention on our two holiday cottages. Between holiday lets we spend as much time as possible in our cottage in Devon as we love the area of the South Hams. We are also delighted to enable people to enjoy the wonderful City of Oxford and surrounding area whilst staying at our cottage in Wheatley.

Mrs Jenny Steele purchased this cottage in 1998

Why Mrs Jenny Steele chose South Hams

We love the South Hams and were delighted to find a traditional cottage in a village location near the estuary to the river Dart.

What makes this cottage unique

Excellent car parking facilities which is rare in Devon.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Had a wonderful quiet and cosy weekend together. Well worth the journey even for just a few nights. Perfect sunset spot at the top of the churchyard at this time of year. Back soon we hope.

We all really loved our stay in Bumble Cottage.

  • 5 of 5

We all really loved our stay in Bumble Cottage. Our holiday came at a time when we were all very tired. The cottage was so comfortable and we were able to relax and do as much or as little as we wished. We enjoyed local walks directly from the cottage and were delighted that there were several wonderful pubs to choose from in Cornworthy and neighbouring villages. On days we wanted to venture further we enjoyed beautiful coastal walks into Dartmouth and the town of Totnes was also great to explore. The cottage was really well equipped and it was lovely to find a bottle of wine to greet us on our arrival too. Many thanks for a great break. Kate, David, Joe and Rupert our rescue dog.

Perfect Week to Unwind

  • 5 of 5

Bumble Cottage was the perfect location to unwind and recharge our batteries. Its in easy reach of Totnes, Dartmouth etc but the village of Cornworthy is quiet and out of the general hustle and bustle. The Village pub is friendly and serves excellent food and if your a fish eater The Maltsters Arms down the road is a must.

The cottage itself is fantastically well equipped with everything you could need, the summerhouse stores a Bar-B-Cue so you can make the most of sunny days without leaving the cottage. The cottage is brilliantly well maintained and we will definitely stay again. Its the perfect little holiday retreat from which you can do as much or as little as you like.

Beautifuly presented country cottage

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is very well presented and finished to a high specification. The kitchen is well equipped with all required appliances, sharp knifes, crockery and utensils. This provides access into the rear garden and seating area. The garden is very well maintained, and provides a glorious sun trap. There's also a Weber barbecue and summerhouse available.

The living room has a lovely multi fuel stove and comfortable seating. The Wifi and Samsung smart tv come in handy if the weather lets you down.

Upstairs both bedrooms have extremely comfortable beds and the bathroom is spotlessly clean.

Bumble cottage is set in the wonderfully quiet village of Cornworthy and feels like you are in the middle of nowhere, but gives quick access to Dartmouth and the surrounding area. The parking space to the rear of the property is a real bonus for this location.

I cannot recommend this property highly enough and if we are ever in the area again will definitely return. Thank you for the welcome bottle of wine which was appreciated after the delights of the M5.
