Dolphin Cottage

1 of 13
Cottage -
2 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 4
Shaldon, Devon, England
Dolphin Cottage is a tiny, thatched, 17th Century, cob cottage, in the picturesque village of Shaldon.

It is in a quiet square, one minute's walk from the beach. There's a second beach which is about ten minute's walk away through the smugglers' tunnel!

Downstairs there is a sitting room with sofa bed, and arm chairs, television with DVD player, and a living flame electric fire. The kitchen is well equipped. There is a washing machine and a dishwasher and a microwave.

The attractively tiled bathroom is also downstairs, and has a toilet, washbasin...
