This section of the page features an image gallery, so if you're using a screen reader you may wish to jump to the main content.

One half of a pair of farm cottages, Crockers Cottage is to be found down a narrow country lane near Coleton Fishacre and the stunning South West Coast Path. This cottage is set in a delightfully quiet and secluded area, in the midst of undulating farmland. You could be in the middle of nowhere and yet some of South Devon's finest coast is close by, as is the beautiful Dart Estuary and the lively charm of Kingswear, Dartmouth and Totnes.

The cottage's layout

Ground floor
Open-plan kitchen/dining/sitting room with solid fuel stove.
First floor
Three bedrooms (1 double, 2 singles), bathroom with shower over bath.

    Made enjoyable...

    The visits to local properties and the excellent guided walks around the gardens at Coleton and Overbeck's. We really missed a proper shower in the cottage.

    Made enjoyable...

    The cottage was very comfortable. We enjoyed the log fire . The bedrooms were excellent. It was close - by car - to two excellent NT properties - Coleton Fishacre and Greenway. Nothing to add to what has been said already.

    Made special:

    The location within walking distance of Dartmouth and close to the coastal path.
