As its name suggests, Bridge Foot Cottage is located at the end of a bridge, with a gritstone bound garden and river terrace giving you a ring-side seat next to the picturesque River Derwent. The property has been refurbished to very high standards while retaining a number of period features including beams and exposed brickwork. The spacious open plan living and dining area has a wood burning stove, but if you’d prefer to sit and watch the river flow by then the river room is the spot for you, with its bi-folding doors that open out onto the river terrace. In fact, there’s no getting away from the river, with French windows in the morning room opening out onto the riverside garden and views of the Derwent from two of the large double bedrooms.
The kitchen has stone flagged flooring along with stone mullion windows and window seats, and the central island unit is the perfect spot for sitting and chatting while preparing the evening meal. Meanwhile if the children want to let off steam, the adjacent Piggery building is a convenient games room, where they’ll find table tennis and a pool table. Once you’ve eaten, enjoy the rest of the evening by bringing a glass of wine or cup of cocoa out onto the terrace and watching the dusk descend onto the river.

"We stayed three nights and I cannot recommend the place highly enough. It had everything we needed for a short stay, the car park was very close and the views were of the rolling Devonish countryside. We were literally less than 5 minutes drive from 2 Supermarkets and the Park & Ride for Dartmouth. The kitchen was fully stocked with everything we needed to cook as well as a small selection of helpful key essentials (tea, coffee, cooking oil, salt/ pepper, washing liquid, etc. As a family we like to explore and stay somewhere different. In this case we'd make an exception."
"Brilliant location, lovely out door space for kids to play, spotless chalet would definitely go again!"
