About Janet Bush

We have busy lives running our own business and so began looking for a Devon cottage a few years ago as a place to 'escape' to. We were delighted when we found Stancombe Cottage. The cottage had been renovated to a high standard and we fell for it instantly.

Janet Bush purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Janet Bush chose South Hams

We fell in love the cottage - its unique position and the peace and quiet it affords. We can choose to be tucked away quietly and recharge our batteries and soak up the magnificent views or to take full advantage of all the facilities the South Hams has to offer. Fabulous beaches, walks, eateries and all types of sports. The choice is endless.

What makes this cottage unique

Guests staying at Stancombe Cottage are welcome to use the facilities of nearby Stancombe Manor. These include an indoor heated swimming pool, panelled snooker room, children's play area and recently resurfaced tennis court.
