With Valentine’s Day falling on a Saturday it’s the perfect time to book a Romantic Weekend Break and give your loved one an extra special treat. Whether you want a cosy rural retreat with an open fire or a property near either of the two stunning coastlines, we have the perfect property just waiting to be snapped up.
Dartmoor - the largest and wildest area of open country in Southern England, but it’s much more than that. Whilst many people come to Dartmoor to enjoy the beautiful scenery and to recharge their batteries, many come to get active! There is an abundance of walking routes, a variety of cycle routes – both on and off road – and there is also the small matter of horse-riding, climbing, letterboxing, geo-caching or kayaking.
Forestoke Linhay is a detached, barn conversion situated on a small, working farm on the edge of the charming village of Holne. With open moorland just outside the farm gates it’s the perfect location for walkers, cyclists and nature lovers. The cottage is traditionally furnished and full of character with exposed stone walls, wooden beams and vaulted ceilings. The living area is warmed by a woodburner, ideal for that cosy romantic weekend!
Brixham, South Devon – life in this busy fishing town has always centred around the harbour, where yachts and heritage trawlers jostle for space with day boats heading out to sea for the day’s catch. For a romantic day out, enjoy a cruise on a heritage trawler across the bay, taking in the stunning coastline and perhaps spotting some dolphins!
Harbour View Retreat is an idyllic, romantic hideaway with fantastic views of Brixham harbour. This holiday home is situated above the owners’ home and benefits from private parking. Inside, the property is cosy and intimate with everything you need within easy reach.
Croyde Bay, North Devon - this magical place has a wide sheltered bay ideal for bathing and excellent surfing, clifftop walks and a village steeped in old world charm, but with a variety of restaurants, shops and pubs.
Pipistrelle Cottage is a stunning barn conversion near Lynmouth and situated in the owners’ grounds, with far reaching views to Exmoor, only a mile away. Designed to a high standard, the cottage has an open plan living area and is comfortably furnished with striking blue and white seating.
Tavistock, West Devon – offering a wide range of interesting and practical shops, pannier market, riverside park, leisure centre and theatre, it’s an excellent base for visitors to see the town itself and for exploring the surrounding beautiful countryside, the wild Dartmoor scenery, and the many nearby pretty villages of Devon and Eastern Cornwall.
Harford House, Peter Tavy is situated on the edge of Harford Bridge Holiday Park within the beautiful Dartmoor National Park and is close to the River Tavy. Dating back to the 19th century, this charming detached property has been thoughtfully renovated to create a delightful holiday home with woodburners and original stone flooring.
