More October half-term availability…

There’s still a handful of holiday cottages available for this October half term – here’s two more to tempt you, this time in Devon. 

About ½ mile from the centre of Shaldon, a pretty village at the mouth of the river Teign estuary, is Laurel Farmhouse (B6), an ancient Grade II listed, cob and thatch semi-detached cottage. This is a lovely old family house, ideal for exploring the many attractions of south Devon. Children love the garden, playhouse and selection of books. The house sleeps six and is £72 per person the week commencing 23rd October.

For those with a slightly bigger brood, Ash Park (L12) is about ½ mile from East Prawle village. Nestled into a rocky hillside, it has 180 degree uninterrupted views over farmland and coastline to the sea (the coastguard cottages at Prawle Point the only other habitation at all near). It is imaginatively designed, set in the most beautiful, three-acre landscaped garden. There is a games room in the garage (table tennis, table football, skittles). For position, interior, garden - all 'five star' - this is one of the best houses we have ever seen. It sleeps 12 and is £165 per person the week commencing 22nd October.
