Ruhiges, idyllisches Ferienhaus
Wir haben zusammen mit unseren 3 Kindern eine wunderbare Woche in Alice Cottage verbracht. Das Haus liegt sehr ruhig mitten im Grünen. Es ist wirklich gemütlich und persönlich eingerichtet mit allem, was man im Urlaub so braucht.
Ein traumhafter, relativ leerer Strand ist in 20 Gehminuten durch ein idyllisches Tal zu erreichen, für andere Ausflüge und zum Shopping empfiehlt sich aber dringend ein Auto.
In der näheren Umgebung ist viel in Sachen Kultur und Entertainment geboten. Alice Cottage bietet sich aber auch als Basis für Ausflüge Richtung Cornwall an.
Unser Urteil: absolut empfehlenswert!
Alice Cottage is a little slice of heaven in South Devon. My family and I had the joy of spending an entire month in the property. It is tastefully kitted out with all you need for both a short holiday or a longer stay. My children loved the garden, building dens and enjoying make believe games. It's only 15 mins walk to Blackpool sands. Dartmouth is just a short journey up the road. We did some great walks along the SW coastal path. If you need peace and quite or time to reflect this is the ideal destination. We didn't want to leave.
Lovely, quiet location
This very clean cottage is well equipped with everything we could possibly. The back garden is natural and peaceful. We were delighted to be greeted by scones, jam, clotted cream and wine when we arrived. it would be best to have a small car to navigate the very narrow roads. The cottage was at times chilly as we felt hesitant to use the heating. Double bed a bit too small for us. Great location.
Absolutely loved the property and the location. Well equipped and spacious. Enjoyed the 'Winnie the Pooh' features that made it feel special. Could not criticise it in any way.
Perfect cottage in perfect location
We found Alice Cottage brilliant in many ways.
It was in a very quiet location and only a 15 min walk to Blackpool Sands - a lovely privately owned shingle beach, incredibly clean and well looked after with really good facilities: life guards, highly rated cafe with good mix of traditional/vegi/vegan foods, kayak hire, beach shop and changing huts by the wc's. Costs a lot to park there (up to £8) however they did waive the fee for us if stopping for the cafe and not using the beach.
A few mins drive took us to Dartmouth and the two car ferries, recommend park and ride for long stays if catching ferry to Greenways, etc, as town centre parking limited to 2hrs.
The cottage was very well equipped with dishwasher, washing machine, separate tumble dryer, log fire and very good wi-fi which worked brilliantly with our chrome cast. It felt really homely with good quality furnishings and lots of interesting books, games, and up to date dvd films. We cooked in a few times and the kitchen was excellent with full sized double fridge & freezer, loads of pots, pans, everything we needed and more.
There were loads of things to do locally, in fact too much for our 1 week there.
Jubilee coastal walk stopping at Dartmouth Castle for lunch (park in NT car park a few mins drive from cottage).
NT Greenways by ferry, holiday home of Agatha Christie.
Ferry to Dittsham and Totnes.
Kingswear steam train.
NT Coleton Fishacres by car ferry.
Brownstone Battery by car ferry, a 2 mile round walk from NT car park, we saw seals from Froward Point Coastwatch Station.
And of course Dartmouth and Blackpool Beach.
A perfect cottage in a perfect location!
It is very rewarding receiving such a review which confirms our own feelings that Alice and its proximity to Blackpool Sands, Dartmouth and other scenic & historical attractions can make for a memorable holiday. It is also testimony to the work of Maria & Richard who manage Alice that the property is in a welcoming and pristine state for guests arrival and who also ensure the property is well-equipped and provides a variety of homely family activities.
Cosy, bright and sunny
Clean, well maintained, quiet location, near beach. Everything you need for an off the beaten track holiday. Ideal place to get out of the rat race!
