Barleycorn Cottage at Watermill Cottages Dartmouth Devon, England

Barleycorn Cottage at Watermill Cottages Dartmouth Devon Family friendly Pet/Dog Friendly Holiday Cottage for romantic breaks in Dartmouth, Devon, England


Holiday in a former Watermill - a grindstone in the kitchen, log burner, high ceilings, deep slate sills & oak beams. Enjoy alfresco meals & bbqs in a garden that was the millpond. Lovely valley views. Large double & spacious twin + cot/zed bed

Come and stay in a cosy stone cottage that used to be a watermill - it still has the oak beams and a grindstone in the kitchen floor - there's another in the garden. Barleycorn Cottage is full of character and is a cosy cottage all year round with a wood-burner, thick walls, high airy ceilings, deep slate sills and massive beams throughout. 

It's open-plan from the kitchen to the comfy sitting room, where the cast-iron wood-burning stove and relaxing sofa and armchairs make for cosy evenings, if you're not in the garden. There are plenty of well-stocked cupboards and storage space in the light and airy kitchen. Barleycorn Cottage has an electric 'Aga' style range cooker which runs on electricity generated by the water turbine in the courtyard - in fact the whole cottage is powered that way so it's a really sustainable choice to stay here!

The kitchen is fully-equipped with a microwave, kettle, toaster, fridge with freezer box and its own washing machine. There's a downstairs loo too and the porch has a stable door which gives onto a wooden verandah with a roof, great for star gazing or for storing walking boots, wellies, kids' toys and dog blankets

The bedrooms are both light, airy and spacious.  The double bedroom has plenty of wardrobe space, an antique mahogany chest of drawers, and a vintage nursing chair in the corner. Plenty of wardrobe space and a desk too.  The bedroom is easily large enough  for a cot or zed bed. Views are over the stream and gardens in the valley.

The twin bedroom has a fitted wardrobe, oak chest of drawers and further cupboard. It enjoys sunny views up over the hill. The bedrooms share a good-sized white-tiled modern bathroom, with a small seating area on the landing. 

Enjoy alfresco meals and bbqs in your own private garden, there's a cafe table and chairs in the sunken part of the fully-fenced garden, formerly the mill pond, with views down the wooded leat and up over the fields. In spring, it's full of snowdrops, bluebells and pink campions. The garden grindstone is filled with scented thyme.

Or sit by the stream or firepit on the lovely shared lawns where there's further seating.  There are 20 acres of green lanes, woods, meadows, streamlands to explore - a stand of cricket bat willows, an orchard too! Bring your wellies and go stream wading.
