Spacious, family friendly accommodation in the heart of South Devon
- english, french
My husband and I converted this barn ourselves along with other family members in 2004. I grew up in a small place called Richings Park, which is not far from Slough, moving to the South West when I was 16 with my family. My husband is originally from the North with family still in Cheshire & Cumbria. Having been in sales and promotions for most of his working life, the challenge of converting Wagtail Cottage was a great learning curve but a very enjoyable one. We hope that you appreciate Wagtail Cottage as much as we appreciated converting it.
Samantha purchased this Cottage in 2005
Why Samantha chose Teignbridge District
We converted Wagtail as we live quite close so we are able to maintain the cottage to the specification we want.
What makes this Cottage unique
Wagtail has lots of space with a hugh hall area and some lovely features including half moon window and high ceiling Dining room with seating for 10 people. Has to be stayed in to be appreciated and absolutely great for family parties.

Great family get away
A lovely place for a family get together. Bonus activities: swimming pool and games room were fantastic as the weather was awful!
I want to thank the owners very much for a fantastic week in a lovely house. We did not want for anything, so comfy.
Thank you for your kind comments and being such wonderful guests.
Lovely place !
Lovely place to stay - plenty of room. The swimming pool was fabulous
Excellent place for all the family, very good service from ownership.
All enjoyed the stay, cottage was a suitable size for our party, well equiped and real fire was a bonus. Pool was a fav with kids. Would visit again.
Our overall view of the property was it’s a bit tired and neglected
Very spacious property and equipped very well, although some of the electrical items need attention ( toaster,dishwasher,tumble dryer,toilet seat in the bathroom, the vacuum cleaner was full to the brim, and the washing machine had to be cleaned before use,these things need checking before clients go in) the setting is great a little bit difficult to find but when you do it’s lovely . The pool and games room was very good for the grand children and adults as well.
We had a lovely time.
Thank you for your feedback, it is greatly appreciated.
We work tirelessly to provide a good level of accommodation and can only apologise that these items have not been brought to our attention previously, and that our maintenance team have not highlighted this to us. Rest assured we will aim to get these items looked at immediately.
We are really pleased to hear that you enjoyed the space that Wagtail Cottage provides, and of course the on-site facilities which are always popular.
We hope to see you again in the future.
Located close to the bustling town of Totnes and a 10 minute drive to the well connected town of Newton Abbot. A short drive will take you to the wonderful beaches of Bigbury, Blackpool Sands and Slapton, as well as the popular hot spots of Torbay with the No 1 Blue Flag Beaches. The attractive coastal ports of Dartmouth & Salcombe are well worth a visit.
