Romantic Break Bank Holiday Weekend

Warm and comfortable, beautifully furnished, wonderful views – perfect for a Romantic Break

The Owlery is the perfect cottage for couples, with its bedroom set on a galleried mezzanine overlooking the wooden-floored open-plan sitting, dining and kitchen area which features a woodburner, circular glass dining table and candles, sofa and coffee tables, electric oven and hob, and microwave. Steps down from the sitting room lead to a luxury bathroom with an oval air bath, big enough for two, and in which guests can have a gentle and relaxing aquamassage.

The cottage has lovely views over the orchard and valley. Outside the garden overlooks the small pond and is partly gravelled and planted with sea-side loving plants. There is a separate paved area with patio furniture with raised shrub borders and climbing plants. A further private lawn area looks up the valley and into the orchard, an ideal spot for birdwatching.

The Owlery is available for a 3-night Bank Holiday break from Friday 24th May – and what’s even better is that the price has been reduced by £50 to just £300! Click here for more details

The location in the South Hams area of South Devon is something really special – one of the most unspoilt and beautiful parts of the UK, with dramatic coastline, beautiful beaches, historic villages and great food and drink producers. The village of Slapton is just a 1.5 mile walk away from the cottage, with Slapton Sands Beach a further half mile on. From there you can walk along the coast to take in the scenery, and maybe a welcome drink at one of the many pubs along the route.
