An Escape to the Country

‘A little piece of heaven in a secluded part of Devon’

Set in the grounds of a tranquil South Hams smallholding, with views across rolling countryside, this holiday let is the perfect getaway from all the hustles and bustles of life.

Relax in the peace of this recently renovated cottage, or in the secluded courtyard garden before you head off to explore the glorious Devon coastlines and scenic towns.

The drive down the winding farm track to Higher Dinnicombe Cottage, takes you past our fields of gorgeous Zwartble and Dutch Spotted Sheep, and our handsome livery horse Lego. Taking in the stunning views across towards Capton and beyond, the cottage sits opposite the  magnificent Arch, a restored farmhouse entrance from the original Dinnicombe farmhouse, dating back to the 1700s.

With ample parking, and the ability to unload right outside the front door, your holiday can begin as soon as you arrive.

Our Accommodation

Enjoy A Peaceful Rural Escape

To the rear of the cottage, the kitchen stable doors lead to a secluded courtyard garden. With a large patio area and plenty of seating, this south westerly facing area benefits from the afternoon sun and the chance to relax. With a BBQ readily available, and a small herb garden to provide perfect accompaniments to any meal, this peaceful courtyard offers tranquillity after a day out exploring.
