Recently refurbished, spacious, stylish and comfortable - Oak is one of the cottages that make up Buckland Court. It is a deceptively large holiday home constructed from original farm buildings using local skills and materials.

Oak Cottage sleeps up to 12 in 5 bedrooms (2 king, 1 linkable twin/superking + sprung chair bed, 1 twin, 1 double/single bunk) with 3 modern bath/shower rooms, 2 receptions, a large well equipped modern white gloss kitchen/diner, parking and lovely communal garden.

We were visiting from the US and found Oak Cottage to be a lovely, characterful and comfortable property that easily holds 12. Beautiful both inside and out with great space for spreading out and everything you could want for a great stay. Great location from which to see lovely South Devon. We loved the river cruise in Dartmouth and the...

Kingsbride is the nearest town with supermarkets, local shops, restaurants, swimming pool/leisure centre and tennis courts.
Dartmouth for boa...
Car recommended
How to get there
Airport: Bristol: 150.0 km
Railway: Totnes: 10.0 km
Ferry: Plymouth: 30.0 km
The cottage is in a rural setting down narrow country lanes and a car is essential.
We are about 1 hour 50 from Bristol, about 55 mins from the end of the M5 near Exeter and 45 minutes from Plymouth which is the nearest ferry port.
The nearest mainline station is at Totnes - 20 minutes drive from cottage with trains direct from London Paddington and other parts of the country. There is a small airport at Exeter and a larger one at Bristol.
Travelling from other parts of the UK will mean you will probably use the M5 and then get on to the A38 - both have plenty of service stations.
Cheddar Gorge and Wookie Hole are interesting places to visit just off the M5 to break up the journey, as is Paignton Zoo.
