Orchard Cottage is a gorgeous Gothic Victorian style cosy retreat with beautiful arched windows. It benefits from your own private hot tub and is set in extensive grounds with facilities including a tennis court, games room, river frontage, woodland and an orchard.
What makes a stay at Orchard Cottage unique?
The peace and tranquility feels like you are a million miles from City life, you can relax in the hot tub during your evenings and spot wildlife galore including owls and bats. During the day, there are kingfishers and otters often seen in the pond just outside your garden and on the Salt Marsh. A swing in the hammock in orchard is not to be missed with stunning views over the Tamar Bridge. The amenities of city life are close by in Plymouth and plenty of delicious eating out options both in Plymouth and other surrounding villages. For those with a young child, the hot tub is just outside the backdoor so you can hear your little one.
