Just stayed for a week at Poppy Cottage, and what a wonderful week it was. The cottage is set in a beautiful village called Blackawton, right next to a quiet pub called, The George Inn, where we enjoyed a nice meal one night and drinks on quite a few others.
The cottage is furnished beautifully and there is a wonderful, open plan, kitchen/diner/sitting room, but the best part is the French windows at the back and the decking area, which overlook the beautiful South Hams countryside, and we would sit for hours watching the view and the wildlife in this beautiful part of the world. The cottage owner has thought of everything and there is everything that you need for a comfortable stay.
Whilst we were there, The Royal Dartmouth Regatta was on and we had great fun watching The Red Arrows fly past and The RAF Typhoon. We spent lazy days in Salcombe and super fun days at Hope Cove, which had a family fun weekend on whilst we were there, which was brilliant fun for the children. We also went on a great cruise on The River Dart and to Woodlands Family Theme Park, where we had a great time.
We left Blackawton today with heavy hearts and agreed that we would be back in a years time. Hopefully, Poppy Cottage will be available for our next stay. Thank you Fern, for letting us stay in your gorgeous cottage.
We have just stayed in Poppy Cottage which is as stunning as the pictures suggest. The cottage has every modern convenience but has all the charm off a country cottage.
We enjoyed having meals on the decking looking over the beautiful views.
The cottage is next to a lovely country pub which serves good local beers and excellent food. There was no noise from the pub on the evenings.
A good location for Dartmouth and Salcombe (lovely beaches).
We would love to stay longer!
