Cottage of the Week – Meadowsweet Cottage, Nethway Farm

If there’s one thing better than going away to a stunning holiday cottage surrounded by miles of rolling green countryside and a host of activities, it’s doing so with as many as your friends and family as possible. The properties at Nethway Farm in Kingswear near Dartmouth are more than fit for purpose, offering a variety of property sizes to meet your requirements.

What’s more each property has been added to our Baby and Toddler range, so when we say it’s suited to the whole family we really mean it. Each property must offer a checklist of facilities, including bath and mat, enclosed garden, cot, blackout blinds, socket protectors, kitchen equipment and more – because we know when the little ones can relax and enjoy their breaks the adults will too!

There are leisure options aplenty at Nethway Farm, including an indoor heated swimming pool and a sauna in a separate building, and a further barn offering facilities for table tennis, pool table, ‘fun’ netball and badminton. A spacious play area within a walled garden is equipped with swings, a sand pit, adventure playground, large outdoor trampoline (with safety netting), a large lawned area with raised decking, complete with garden furniture and views over the surrounding countryside.

The peninsula is a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is renowned for its coastline, which offers coastal walks and a choice of footpaths leading to secluded beaches. The village of Kingswear itself is set on the Dart estuary opposite Dartmouth – which can be reached via ferry. Here you will find a wealth of things to do, including the Kingswear–Paignton steam railway, Paignton Zoo and Woodlands Leisure Park, to name but a few, and many Blue Flag beaches and hidden coves are within easy reach.

The outside of the properties at Nethway Farm are equally attractive. Set in superb landscaped shared gardens, you will find a riot of colour, with flower beds, tubs, hanging baskets and an intriguing network of brick paths, courtyards and paved terraces. Further afield the estate includes a well-stocked one-acre fishing lake (rods not supplied). Children are welcome to help feed the animals; and there are goats, ponies, kune kune pigs, sheep, lambs, rabbits and guinea pigs to make friends with.

The cottages themselves have been meticulously converted, with careful use of traditional stone and slate. All are tastefully furnished and decorated throughout, and comprehensively equipped. All of the properties have their own patios with furniture and all enjoy shared use of a separate barbecue area.
