This spacious 4 bedroom cottage is located in beautiful Higher Batson, a peaceful and hidden corner of the South Hams just twenty minutes walk from Salcombe town centre. Stylish and contemporary. This spacious house has enough space to easily accommodate up to 8 people but cosy enough to make smaller groups feel homely. All of the smart, contemporary rooms are light and airy. Simple and refined, with tasteful local artwork and well-placed lighting this is an easy house to be in.

House Description
The welcoming porch and hallway lead into a surprisingly large sitting room complete with a fabulous wood-burning stove and plenty of comfy leather sofas.

Double doors open up to the rear garden, bringing lots of light into the room.

There is a large open plan kitchen, complete with everything you might need and a handy utility space by the back door for wellies and wet dogs. A generously sized cloakroom is also on this floor.

The spacious master bedroom has a king-size bed, wardrobe and chest of drawers along with a roomy en-suite bathroom, Next door is a twin room with zip and link beds. Bedroom 3 has a king-size bed and bedroom 4 has bunk beds. On this floor there is also a handy shower room.

The rear garden is a dream. Perfectly positioned to catch most of the day’s sunshine. It’s the place to be on a summer’s evening, a drink in hand and an eye on the sun as it sets over the valley. There is ample seating and a barbecue for al-fresco dining. Enclosed to all sides, it’s great for children but should they choose to venture a little further, the area surrounding the property is so tranquil, you can afford to relax while they explore the beautiful grounds.

This is a no-smoking property and does allow one well behaved dog, for which there is an extra cost of £30.

Parking
Outside there is ample parking for up to 3 cars and also an extra space for a boat.

A word from the owner
We absolutely adored Cider Press Cottage from the first moment we saw it. It's set in a lovely little hamlet, sheltered from the wind and brimming with wildlife. The cottage was converted from a cider press for the farm in the 1990s and recently underwent another total update. There is a resident owl and a family of deer that we sometimes see if up early enough in the morning!

We can arrive without going through the centre of Salcombe so avoiding the crowds. We can park right outside the front door – Safe to let the dog and children straight out of the car.

Inside, this is no dark poky cottage – beautifully light and airy, we love the living room which everyone is surprised by as it is so large and spacious!

The master bedroom with its en-suite bathroom is also beautifully spacious.

Our favourite local walk from the cottage is to Snapes Point, where you have amazing views of the whole estuary and out to sea. We also love to walk into Salcombe, get the ferry across to Portlemouth and walk to Gara Rock for a cream tea.
