We have collected together some resources on accommodation and all aspects of life in Devon, which we hope our guests may find useful. This includes attractions, restaurants as well as holiday cottages, bed and breakfast accommodation and hotels. Please feel to explore.
Devon is an ideal location for bird watching enthusiasts. The nearest nature reserve to our cottages is Little Bradley Ponds in Bovey Tracey. As well as birds, the reserve is home to dragonflies, amphibians and freshwater plants. Resident birds include Cirl Buntings, Peregrine, Raven, Dipper, Pied Flycatcher and Little Egret, as well as Sabine's gull and Sooty shearwaters.
Nearby fishing hot spots include Abbrook Pond in Kingsteignton, near Newton Abbot. It provides a peaceful setting offering mixed fishery, tench, carp, as well as other coarse fish. Night fishing is also available here. Other fishing venues can be found through the Newton Abbot Fishing Association, a nearby coarse angling club. Day tickets can be purchased for several waters, which the association hold the rights for, so don't despair if you are not a member. See their website for more information: http://www.newtonfishing.com.
A visit to Torquay Marina, at the Strand is well worth a visit. Here you will find facilities for watersports such as jet-skiing, sailing and windsurfing. There are several sailing clubs and schools in the area, including the sailing school at Beacon Quay and the sailing club at Babbacombe.
The coast path between Teignmouth and Torquay is very popular with trekkers. From our cottages you can follow the coast along past Maidencombe beach and on towards Shaldon, which is a quaint small fishing village and across the bridge into Teignmouth, or you can take the passenger ferry across the river.
