Description

This property is the epitome of simple elegance. Neutrally decorated and furnished to a high standard, Meadow Thatch is the perfect balance of original period features and unaffected modern decor. Situated in the traditional village of Cockington in South Devon, it is the ideal property for a large group or family wanting to experience all the beauty of the surrounding area in a luxurious setting. The downstairs hallway leads to a light and airy ground floor bedroom boasting a king-size bed and views over the front garden. Across the hall is a large family bathroom with a spacious walk-in shower. With its high ceilings, exposed beams and breakfast bar, the full appointed kitchen offers a wonderfully sociable space for cooking together. The open-plan living area is spacious yet cosy, with the dining and sitting spaces slightly partitioned creating the illusion of two separate rooms. Relax together on the comfortable sofas discussing what exciting adventures are in store for the rest of your stay, or enjoy a delicious meal at the dining table, with the patio doors opened out into the garden and a warm summer breeze diffusing around the room. Upstairs are two further bedrooms, again impeccably decorated and furnished, both of which offer beautiful views of the gardens. One bedroom has a king-size bed and the other a super-king size bed that can be converted into two single beds if needed. This room also has the additional option of a sofa bed that can sleep a further two children. There is also a modern family bathroom on this floor featuring a bath and hand-held shower. Outside there are three enclosed gardens. At the front of the property there is a lawn with a babbling stream running along one side, there is also a gravel area with seating. At the back of the property there are two separate enclosed gardens, bisected by the stream. Both offer lawn and seating areas, one of which being a raised platform with furniture and a BBQ. The gardens offer a tranquil place to relax, with the only sounds being birdsong and the trickle of the stream. Cockington is a picturesque centre boasting a number of traditional eateries, shops and the sixteenth century manor house, Cockington Court, that has been converted into a thriving arts and crafts centre. The Court's acreage offers plenty of beautiful walking trails that are dog-friendly and full of fascinating sites. A short walk is the vibrant seaside resort of Torquay, a busy town with plenty of restaurants, bars, and shops as well as popular theatre. Meadow Thatch is a wonderful option for anyone wanting to visit the spectacular South Devon Coast, while staying in a luxurious and elegant setting.
A charming Devonshire village Cockington boasts narrow country lanes lined by traditional thatched cottages. In the village centre and you will find the Tudor manor house, Cockington Court and its acreage, featuring beautifully restored lakes and points of interest such as the Gamekeepers Cottage. The Manor is now a craft centre offering the opportunity for visitors to watch craftspeople at work and to purchase any number of handmade gifts. If you needed any more reasons to visit this quaint village, it would be its proximity to the bustling capital of the English Riviera, Torquay. Torquay is a busy seaside resort offering visitors everything from fine dining, sailing and water sports, a popular theatre scene, as well as vibrant nightlife.

‘Cockington as many know is a beautiful village Location close to most Devon seaside towns. Some of my review is going to be negative but I have spoken to Sykes about the issues and they have promised to sort it. We had difficulty finding the cottage, the sign is up on a wall when it would be better to be on the gate like the other cottages within the small complex. Parking was brilliant to have. It really isnt wheelchair access because before you get into the cottage there are a couple of steps. Key was in a key safe, great idea:) The kitchen was fully equipped, no need to worry about can openers etc! The dishwasher didnt work, they left you with a dishwasher tablet, I don’t think they knew it didnt work! The microwave smelt of curry the whole week lol, worked well tho. Wow to a washing machine and tumble dryer in the utility room, I went home with no washing which was fantastic. The downstairs shower room was beautiful, I didnt use the shower but my partner said it was fine. The downstairs bedroom was the only room that smelled of dog. The rest of the cottage didnt. The living room had Sky Q or something which was great, all the bedrooms had Netflix and they all worked. The upstairs bathroom has a sloping ceiling which I banged my head on lol, nice deep bath which was welcome after a long day walking the dog on the beaches of Devon. Beds comfy with lovely clean sheets. The garden is dog friendly unless you have a dog that jumps.....ours doesn’t so no issue for us. We walked up to the Drum pub but found it fairly expensive so didnt eat there. I have previously had an amazing cream tea at the tea shop in Cockington but boy oh boy it gets busy. You can walk to the nearest beach in 15-20 minutes, turn left out of the main gate, follow the road for a couple of minutes and you will see a gate, through there you will be able to walk alongside the road nearly all the way to the beach.... lovely because our dog could go off lead. Again I must say that Sykes listened to all my issues and hopefully they will have been put right:)’

Very good
‘The cottage is situated in the lovely village of Cockington just outside of Torquay, the village is a tourist attraction due to all the thatched roof cottages. Meadow Thatch is situated just off the centre of the village and set in it's own grounds with enclosed gardens front and rear, which was ideal for the dogs. The stream which runs through the gardens and past the house is well fenced so we had no issues. The cottage is 3 bedroomed with a bedroom, toilet and shower room on the ground floor, which is ideal if you have mobility issues, not sure if wheelchair would fit through internal doors and the kitchen has one step up. Very clean throughout and as we had two dogs there was plenty of room. The drum bar restaurant is approximately a mile from the cottage and as there is off street parking at the cottage this would be a bonus in peak season as parking in the village and at Drum are minimal. Would highly recommender families or couples with or without dogs.’

‘We had a fabulous holiday in this beautiful thatched cottage. The cottage was modern, spacious, tastefully decorated and was immaculate. We took our dog with us and we were pleased to find safe enclosed gardens at the front and rear of the property. Cockington village is really beautiful and relaxing and everyone was very friendly. Highly recommended, we will definitely be returning.’
