The long and elegant living area is split into three sections, all strung together with retro light fixtures and a melange of gold, yellow and blue hues. At one end is the cosy snug area which boasts a relaxing atmosphere with two dove grey sofas and a gorgeous ornamental fireplace with a roaring Chesney wood burner - perfect for reminiscing and storytelling with friends and families over a bottle of wine.

Opposite the stairway is the alluring wood panelled library with two sumptuous leather armchairs, made for those precious quiet moments with a good book. Beside the library is the TV area with plenty of seating so everyone can gather around for family film. Snuggle up on the pretty grey or mustard yellow sofa with a soft blanket and a cup of hot chocolate and enjoy the warmth of the Rasmussen woodburning stove flickering against the stunning antique tiles.


The statement galley kitchen is black, bold and beautiful with plenty of storage and worktop space, plus all the gadgets and gizmos you could ever need to rustle up a delicious meal. More than just practical, this is also a lovely spot to sip your morning coffee with its carrera marble quartz worktops, ink black cabinets, industrial-style lamps, stunning white subway tiles and pretty views up to garden.

From the kitchen, step into the bright and blissful conservatory dining area. Surrounded by greenery and filled with homely trinkets, this is a perfect space for family gatherings with its beautiful wood dining table, big enough to fit eight. Settle in for the evening with your loved ones for a merry meal or on sunny days you can throw open the doors and let in that country breeze.


Forager has the choice of four heavenly bedrooms, all adorned with tranquil shades of whites and greys and boasting White Company Egyptian cotton linen and soft, fluffy throws to guarantee that perfect night's sleep. The master bedroom has the benefit of built-in wardrobes, a stylish en suite shower room and underfloor heating to keep your toes warm in the morning.

The second double bedroom also has a plush king size bed, a smart TV and a lovely wooden chest of drawers. The other two bedrooms are snug singles, ideal for little ones (and adults) who don't want to share! The larger of the singles has gorgeous views over the garden and countryside whereas the more petite single allows the sunshine to come through making it a lovely reading area.


The master bedroom has its own modern en suite shower room and there is a family bathroom which has a sensational roll-top bath with over head shower. You can enjoy complimentary White Company toiletries and well as warm and fluffy towels straight off the heated rails.

Outdoor space

Not only set in rolling countryside, Forager has its very own picturesque hillside! From the conservatory, make your way up the hill to enjoy one of the best views Devon has to offer with long stretches of green fields, panoramic sky views and nothing between you and the sunshine. Enjoy a spot of lunch on the decking area whilst the little ones and the dogs run free of the green lawn and if you're looking for a bit of shade you can retire to the cute summerhouse. Spend the evening in the great outdoors by the firepit, turn on the outdoor lights, grab a bag of marshmallows and make some precious memories under the stars.


There is plenty of private parking for up to four cars on the private driveway.


Forager has WiFi so if you need to keep in touch with the outside world you can.


Two well behaved dogs are very welcome at Forager. We charge £30 per dog per week or short break.

In the Area

Forager is located on a quiet country lane in the picturesque Devon village of East Cornworthy. Tucked away in the rolling hillside, there is a plethora of stunning places to explore just a walk away from the Dart Estuary to South Hams beaches. Just a twenty-minute walk is away is Dittisham, a waterside village which has two local pubs to enjoy, a café, general stores and regular ferries which take you into the heart of Dartmouth. Whether you arrive by boat or by car, Dartmouth has plenty to offer like its range of independent shots, delicious eateries, its very own castle and of course its well-known beautiful harbour where the Port of Dartmouth Royal Regatta takes plates, along with other waterside events, fairs and displays.

This retreat has the benefit of being both close to Devon's south coast and to the National Park of Dartmoor meaning there's something for everyone to enjoy. Just a short drive away are golden and sandy beaches like Blackpool Sands, an award-winning Blue Flag family beach, or if you're after a long stretch of beach to sprawl out on then Slapton Sands and Torcross Beach are a must. Explore Dartmoor by foot, on bike or by horse and visit local attractions like National Trusts Castle Drago, Bovey Castle and Sharpham Estate. For animal lovers, you also have the Miniature Pony Centre, Totnes Rare Breeds and of course the wonderfully popular Paignton Zoo just a drive away.
