About Keith and Jean Hanslow

We bought the cottage, following early retirement, for ourselves and our grown up family to use.

Since then we have also enjoyed renting the cottage to holiday visitors and have been very pleased to have received fantastic feedback from the people who have stayed.

Whilst we are new advertisers on this site, with previous sites we are proud to have achieved a 5 star rating.

Keith and Jean Hanslow purchased this cottage in 2004

Why Keith and Jean Hanslow chose South Hams

We have been visiting the area since childhood and then with our own children and now grandchildren. We love the area, whether relaxing at the cottage, exploring the local towns or having fun on the beautiful beaches.

What makes this cottage unique

The cottage is in a lovely quiet countryside spot and within easy access to so many places to visit.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Once again we have returned to this peaceful cottage in a perfect location and returned home feeling completely relaxed and hoping we get to go back. The cottage is very well equipped, very clean and extremely comfortable. It is located in an ideal part of the South Hams and is accessible to many beautiful beaches and places of interest. (2014)



Bramleigh Cottage is set in beautiful surroundings which are very peaceful and relaxing.

The Cottage itself is a credit to its owners. We have stayed a few times now and it has everything you need for a comfortable holiday. It is exceptionally well maintained and welcoming. (2014)



We had an amazing time and wouldn't hesitate in recommending a stay in the cottage. I chose Bramleigh cottage as I was 33 weeks pregnant at the time and read the amazing reviews about how clean and well equipped the cottage was and how relaxing previous guests had found their stay. I have to say that the reviews are accurate - I have never stayed in such a clean holiday cottage, it really was immaculate and had absolutely everything we could have possibly needed and more. (2013)



The cottage was welcoming and peaceful, and the kitchen was well provided. The only sounds we heard were from the birds and the sheep and cows. We had fresh eggs every morning from the neighbouring hens. We could walk to hills and streams from our cottage and to Avon Mill, by way of Avon River, for scones and tea or lunch. We shopped at nearby Kingsbridge for food.....great and reasonable produce. It was a short drive to the ocean, e.g. Hope Cove and Salcombe, for terrific walks along the cliffs. This was our second and longest stay at Bramleigh, and hopefully not our last.

A lovely quiet peaceful retreat

  • 5 of 5

Our first stay at Bramleigh and we were very pleased with every aspect of the stay. Lovely spotlessly clean and tidy cottage set in a quiet rural location yet with the reassuring company of other guests and residents in the neighbouring properties. Welcome pack was much appreciated and the cottage could not have been better equipped, a true home from home. Driving the local lanes took a little getting used to but the other drivers seemed to have endless patience! Particularly enjoyed Dartmouth watching the activity on the water. Excellent wifi connection throughout the cottage but couldn’t get a mobile signal without going a way up the lane, in hindsight not a bad thing!! Would have no hesitation in recommending the cottage for a quiet relaxing getaway.

The property was lovely, really clean & set in beautiful countryside. It was a real home from home.

  • 5 of 5

The wine eggs and biscuits were a lovely touch. It was ideal for visiting the coast , the walk to Topsham bridge was great. it was just perfect for us combining the coast & country. South Pool was a lovely village with a great pub, Salcombe was really pretty too. The coast walk to GaraRocks was a pleasure. The rewards of a nice drink and spectacular views was well worth it. I would happily recommend this property and look forward to the next time.

Such a lovely property. Well equipped & peaceful.

  • 5 of 5

This was easily the best cottage we've stayed in and was equipped with everything needed. The rooms are spacious & modern and the surroundings were exceptionally peaceful. Clearly, Keith & Jean have been very thoughtful when furnishing and equipping the property and we even found items we didn't expect. To sum up, we can't think of anything that would improve your stay and the milk, cookies & wine were a very welcome gesture. Book & enjoy!

Fantastic, cosy and has everything you need.

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is amazing, it is so peaceful and in a beautiful location. The owners have thought of everything you need. It has very friendly neighbours and has beautiful beaches nearby. Who needs to go abroad! We will defiantly be back. The little touches like eggs, milk, wine and cookies go down a real treat too. The cottage was very clean and information for surrounding places to visit and places to eat were very well appreciated. We would recommend Blackpool sands and Bigbury on sea for beaches and go to Torquay to the Model village and Kents caverns. Loved every minute.

A peaceful and beautiful spot to stay.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Bramleigh late last summer and have just returned for a few days. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and found the cottage to be cosy and very well equipped on both occasions, whatever the weather outside! We found it to be immaculate, very well maintained and welcoming. We visited several of the beaches nearby both during warm, sunny weather and during dramatic storms - both stunning. We would highly recommend this beautiful cottage nestled in the peaceful countryside but within very easy reach of so many attractions.

Spring break

  • 5 of 5

A great place to stay and we have on several occasions. Thoroughly recommend this lovely cottage in a peaceful location. Off the beaten track, so a car is essential. Maintained to a high standard and well equipped. Location is good for exploring the South Hams and beyond.
