You will find Higher Bowden nestling peacefully on a south-facing hillside in the picturesque South Devon countryside.

Situated one mile from the award-winning Blackpool Sands beach and four miles from the historic royal port of Dartmouth, there are a wide range of places of interest within easy distance.

This family run complex of thirteen luxury holiday cottages was developed from two adjoining 17th century farms set in 6.5 acres of beautifully landscaped grounds.

All cottages are equipped to a high standard with log burning stoves in brick inglenooks and fitted pine kitchens. You will find large LCD TVS with Freeview, DVD players (a large selection of current DVDs are available to borrow), and Sky Sports channels in the cottages. Each cottage has an outdoor sitting area, many with a secure terrace or small garden. Barbecues and deckchairs are also available.

The attractively landscaped grounds incorporate many leisure facilities including heated indoor swimming pool, sauna, spa bath, small well-equipped gymnasium, floodlit all-weather tennis court, full-size snooker table, games room (with table tennis, pool, table football and Xbox 360s), trampoline, small putting green, and nature trail. There is also an animal enclosure with lambs, goats, guinea pigs and ornamental fish.

Exceptional facilities for families with small children include two outside playground areas with swings, slides etc, an under 5's playroom, and the availability of babysitters and equipment.

Short breaks are available from late September until June. Bed linen and towels provided. Please bring your own cot linen and swimming/beach towels.
