Middle Cottage, Cornworthy

Sleeps 4

Middle Cottage is located on Abbey Road in the quiet village of Cornworthy. Tucked away from the usual tourist trail we are sure you will find the location peaceful even in the height of the summer. Middle Cottage is over 200 years old and has been entirely renovated to an extremely high standard retaining lots of original character mixed with modern comforts. From the front of the property you have views over fields and the remains of the 13th century Priory. Cornworthy has a pub and there are two riverside pubs within walking distance at Tuckenhay.

Cornworthy lies in the picturesque Dart Valley between Totnes and Dartmouth. There are lovely walks locally and along a beautiful stretch of the river Dart and the beaches of the South Hams are only a short drive away.

Accommodation: The front door opens into the slate-tile lobby with 2 steps up to the open plan ground floor. The kitchen/dining area to the right is well equipped with a washing machine, dishwasher, ceramic hob, fan oven and  fridge with ice box as well as microwave, kettle and toaster. To the left is the living area with 3-seater sofa and armchair centered around the inglenook fireplace. Beyond the fireplace is the snug area with 2 seater ‘snuggle’ sofa and TV with freeview. (The TV is on a pivoting wall bracket so it can be watched from the lounge area or the snug). The stairs lead up from the snug.

Upstairs: Are the two bedrooms and family bathroom. The master bedroom has an oak framed kingsize bed, furnishings and an annex that can easily accommodate a travel cot (please advise upon enquiry if you would like one included). The second bedroom has a standard double and furnishings. The family bathroom has a heated slate tile floor, toilet, basin and bath with electric shower over.

Outside: There are sheltered gardens at the front and the back of the cottage, both with patio areas and tables and chairs so that you can catch the sun at any time of day. Great for enjoying a coffee and croissant in the morning or a cold beer or hot chocolate in the evening. There is space outside to pull up and unload and on road parking just a few yards away.

“A wonderful little property in a charming village. The house is immaculate and very well equipped. We were welcomed with scones, jam and clotted cream. We loved the area and the only downside was the weather which was just our bad luck. We would love to go back.” Pat – 28 October – 3 November 2019

 

“This is a gorgeous and very well appointed cottage. We had a lovely stay over a few days. Close enough to Totnes, while escaping the hustle and bustle.” Paul 1-6 October 2019

 

“A cosy, well equipped cottage in a quiet setting with thoughtful extras. The Devon cream tea on our arrival was very welcome.” Monica 21-28 September 2019

 

“Lovely, tastefully furnished, well-equipped cottage, thoughtfully presented. Very comfortable. It’s well placed for exploring Dartmouth/Totnes area but there’s no public transport from Cornworthy village if that’s your thing. Good pub grub within walking distance however. Though only a few miles from Totnes there are quite a lot of single track, windy lanes to get there, if that bothers you. We had a great week and did a delightful walk from the doorstep to the waterside pub at Tuckenhay.” Hilary 6-13 September 2019

 

“We had a great stay at this lovely cottage. Had everything you could need. Would definitely stay again.” Olive 24-31 August 2019

 

“This cottage is so beautifully presented, absolutely spotless with great quality fittings and fixtures. The beds were so comfortable and the cottage had everything we needed. Without question we will be back again. Thanks so much for a lovely stay.” Charlotte 17-24 August 2019

 

“Amazing cottage – everything you could want and more in one small perfect package” Stuart – 10-16 August 2019

 

“Oh no we have got to go home. You have made Middle Cottage a beautiful and homely place to visit. Thank you for my favourite Sweet Williams and your kind neighbour bought me some fragrant Sweet Peas. We will be back, back, back” Maria and Gary – 12 July 2019

 

“Fantastic stay at nautical beautiful cottage. Provides all of what you would need. Very comfortable and very clean. Lots of places to visit and lots to do in Dartmouth” Graham and Sylvia – July 2019

 

“A beautifully appointed cottage in lovely surroundings. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Middle Cottage which was an absolute delight with lovely spaces to relax in inside and out, whatever the weather! It is beautifully decorated and furnished. The owners have thought of everything one could want (including jigsaws which we resorted to on a wet day!). We really appreciated the cream tea that greeted us on our arrival.  Middle Cottage is a real home from home in a lovely part of the world with lots to see and do.The narrow Devonshire lanes are a delight to look at, and can be a bit of a challenge at times, especially in the height of the season we imagine. But well worth the fun of exploring and coming across another charming spot by the river Dart round every corner. Highlights for us included taking a ferry across the river to Agatha Christie’s house; and traveling back in time on the steam train along the coast.
A truly lovely holiday place. Thank you.” Veronica – 14-19 June 2019

 

“Middle Cottage was prefect for us – tastefully appointed, it has everything needed and provided a homely and peaceful base from which to explore this lovely part of the world. We’d definitely like to come back and continue exploring ….” Sue and Dave – 3-7 June 2019

 

“My 5 year old son and I have stayed in several locations in this part of Devon – Dittisham, Brixham etc, we love the area. But I really liked how peaceful and friendly Cornworthy was, more laid back, and I would definitely go back. We started to find and visit new places form here and it was nice to be able to do easy walks right from the house, down to the river. We always drive to Blackpool sands beach, but Pennywell Farm was a new one and my son loved it. There’s a great kids holiday club at Dartington (Humpty Dumpty nursery) my son love it (camp fires and marshmellows go down a treat) while I went to the spa at the nearby Dartmouth Hotel and Golf Club. I walked down to Tuckenhay which was lovely also.  Middle Cottage was really nice, lovely wooden floors and furniture throughout. It was handy having a bit of outdoor space just outside the kitchen. The kitchen/living area seemed more spacious than the photos. The second bedroom upstairs is definitely small though. There are fields etc all around, it was very peaceful. You can drop stuff off right in front and then can park your car a few yards up the hill. The heating was great morning and evening. I was in during the day times and couldn’t work it out, so just put an extra jumper on and it was fine, even though it was really cold and windy outside. There were lots of extra things there that were really nice and useful – olive oil, milk, tea, coffee, jam and more that you often end up having to buy when renting. There were scones and clotted cream for our arrival. The owners were really lovely and nice. Dart Valley Cottages are always on the end of the phone and helpful, whatever comes up, like trying to find the cottage in the dark, or locking myself out” Leila – 12-19 April 2019

 

“This is a lovely cottage in a beautiful location. Cute and cottagey yet modern and fresh. Really lovely touches for guests and a well-equipped kitchen which can be a rare thing in a rental cottage! Would love to stay here again.” Sarah – April 2019

Beautiful countryside and lovely pubs” Andrea – 3-6 April 2019

 

“We had a wonderful time at Middle Cottage, thank you so much. The cottage is delightful, beautifully done with very comfortable and tasteful decor. The bed is wonderfully comfortable! We walked to the Maltsters – deliious. Kayaked from Dittisham to Dartmouth, back up to Totnes and down to Dittisham again on  a glorious day (our kayak filled your front garden!) We spent a blustery day around Widecombe in the Moor and as we leave are heading to walk around Chagford. This is a lovely spot – we came like Jane and Jim to scout out the area and have fallen in love with Dartmoor so will be keeping an eye out for our own place down here – and may well use Middle Cottage again when we next some exploring. Thank you” – Clare and Glen – 13-17 June 2018

 

“Thank you for a lovely stay! wonderful place”  Elizabeth and Roger – June 2018

 

“A delightful place to be. Thank you for making it so comfortable and providing everything. We enjoyed the courtyard at breakfast (in the sun) and home to relax in the evening. A great base I’d love to return for a proper holiday!” Liz – May 2018

 

“Thank you very much for letting us stay in your lovely cottage. Thanks” Neil, Sharon, Ellie and Zak – 19 August 2017

“Thank you so much for a lovely week. The cottage has everything you need and the welcome basket was very much enjoyed. We have had a busy week exploring the area and found the cottage a delightful place to return to at the end of the day. We shall hopefully be back maybe in the winter to try out the fire! Many thanks”  Emily, Ben and mum – 29 July 2017 

 

“We have spent a lovely week in this delightful and welcoming cottage which is tastefully furnished and very well equipped. The weather has been glorious and we have enjoyed having the stable doorhalf-open, giving a cool and fresh atmosphere. We have been busy, took the ferry from Dittisham To Greenway House; Kingswear Castle Paddle Steamer; steam train/ ferry from Dartmouth ; coffee at Gara Roack; the sea was such glorious blue (thanks for the suggestion) Coleton Fishacre – NT property (Art Deco) ; also visited family. Our first night we lit the fire as it was a little chilly (any excuse!) which added to the cosy feeling; but wasn’t needed any other night as it has been so warm. We hope others get to know of this little gem in a lovely area; off the beated track. Thanks Jane and Jim.” Martin and Claire – July 2017

 

What a delightful cottage! Thoroughly enjoyed my brief 3 day stay whilst visiting friends nearby. Rustic but modern along with what can only be described as a fantastic fireplace which really must be impressive in the cold winter nights! Thank you for sharing your beautiful cottage!” Michael – July 2017

 

“The four of us enjoyed a relaxed and comfortable stay in your delightful home. It was very fresh and tidy when we arrived and there were lots of little extras which made our stay very enjoyable. Thank you very much” Sarah, Neil, Judith and Gary – September 2015

 

“This cottage, in its quiet location, is an excellent place to relax, recharge the batteries and appreciate the best of Devon all within a short drive. Plus the tasteful decor and comfortable ambience that you have created makes it a place that “must be visited” again! Thanks” Clive and Sue – 12 April 2015
