Walnut Cottage is bright, spacious and is situated in a beautiful rural location offering a peaceful and relaxing retreat for seven guests. . Dating back to the 13th century these charming holiday cottages occupy a peaceful location, and command views over the owners’ 250-acre working Charolais beef farm, bordered by the River Teign on the edge of the village of Teigngrace. This lovely and popular part of south Devon has much to offer with glorious beaches, meandering estuaries and some very pretty countryside. Also within easy striking distance is the rugged expanse of Dartmoor, its wild beauty changing colour with the varying seasons, its picturesque villages, Dartmoor ponies and tors. Walnut Cottage (ref 26720) and Oakapple Cottage (ref 26721) are barn conversions offering comfortable holiday accommodation. Acorn Cottage (ref 25544) and Oak Leaves (ref 25560) were originally farm buildings and have since been carefully converted into two spacious and very comfortable holiday cottages. Side by side each has its own patio. The Farmhouse (ref 25545) was the original farmhouse since 1640 and this now has been tastefully converted for use as a holiday cottage. Apple Blossom Cottage (ref 25546) is the original building, built in the 13th century and was in later years the kitchen for the farmhouse; now it has been tastefully converted to form a very comfortable holiday home. The owners will be delighted to show children around the farm and are always on hand to tell guests of the many attractions this lovely area has to offer. There are also chickens wandering around the farm, look out for the eggs. There is also a designated dog walking area, set in half an acre. Situated close to the owners caravan park, but retaining their privacy, all of the cottages have use of the heated outdoor swimming pool, there are also 2 coarse fishing lakes, (must have own licence or purchase a day ticket). Twelve Oaks is an ideal location for those who want to leave behind the strains of city living and relax in a peaceful rural setting. Wander along pretty streams, explore rambling woods, and trek over undulating hills. There are so many attractions close by including Go Ape or cycling in nearby Haldon Hill, Crealy Adventure Park and Woodlands all within a 25 mile radius.
