About this property

The Retreat is quite simply one of the most breathtaking properties in the South West. Architect designed with style, comfort and accessibility in mind, the property offers a sumptuous base for larger families, groups and gatherings.

Constructed from an impressive exposed Oak frame, with high vaulted ceilings, the open plan living area is the heartbeat of the property. Whether enjoying a family meal around the generously sized dining table, or making the most of the tech such as SMART TV and Sonos sound system, it really is a fantastic social space for all the gang to enjoy together after a busy day of exploring.

Extensive glazing, bi-fold doors and a wrap around balcony work together to maximise the panoramic rural views, while inside the underfloor heating, a green heat recovery system and a stylish Morso log burner ensure the property is warm even in the colder months.

For those with mobility needs, there is a lavish double size suite with ultra-modern wet room on the ground floor, situated just off the open plan living area. And with a parking space beside the front door and generous space throughout, it’s easy to see how the property has previously achieved ratings of M1 and M2 in independent mobility assessments.

Whilst guests at The Retreat have the exclusive use of a private hot tub, the full range of site facilities such as indoor and outdoor pools, sauna and tennis courts are available to use free of charge. Younger guests will love the adventure play area whilst the indoor soft play area will keep them entertained if the weather turns.

Located on the exclusive Gitcombe estate, the property offers a luxury escape in the rolling hills of the South Hams; an Area Of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Within a short drive is the Malsters Arms in Tuckenhay, formerly owned by the TV chef Keith Floyd. Foodies will also want to visit nearby Sharpham Vineyard, famed for its wine and cheese production, where the tasting tours are highly recommended.

The neighbouring coastal resorts of Salcombe and Dartmouth are within a short drive, as is Dartmoor, making this the perfect coastal or country retreat.
