Figgy Cottage is as gorgeous as one would expect from a refurbished and lovingly restored former gatehouse. Fine furnishings, stylish designer fabrics and a modern kitchen - just perfect for a relaxing getaway.


A very comfortable sitting room with deep sofas bordering the open fireplace, just right for a cuddle up in the evening. Netflix is available on the TV and plenty of books and DVDs are left in the cottage for you, along with an iPod dock and a Roberts radio.


The smart kitchen has all mod cons including a dishwasher, slate floors and all the equipment you could wish for. So if you tire of the many local eateries why not cook up a storm at home?


A rather special four poster large double bed in the master bedroom piled high with luxurious linens, covers and cushions. Two very pretty single bedrooms are just as gorgeous. All have deep mattresses, high thread count linens and some rather lovely blinds and curtains in each room - pure bliss. The beds are made up with duck down bedding however hypoallergenic can be provided if you prefer.


A bright sparkling en suite bathroom for the master bedroom and a large family shower-room with sloping ceilings complete with lashings of hot water and big fluffy towels.


Parking for one car is available outside the cottage, more can be parked a few steps away in the courtyard.


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


One adult dog is very welcome. Please note, there is an additional fee per dog, per week or short break.


Figgy Cottage is set in 120 acres of stunning grounds with woodlands and rivers to explore; this is a perfect rural escape for friends or family. St Nectan sleeps 6 and is in the same grounds so both could be booked togther for a larger party.

A footpath from the grounds leads up to Doddiscombsleigh, home to the renown Nobody Inn. The Manor Pub in Ashton offers gorgeous food and is just a half mile walk down the hill.

Enjoy amazing views from Haldon Belvedere otherwise known as Lawrence Castle, just five minutes away. Haldon Forest Park has lovely walks, bike trails, Go Ape and Segwaying. Exmouth has a great beach, sailing, wake boarding and within a 10 minute drive are wonderful walks at Kennick, Tottiford and Trenchford Reservoirs. Other places to explore are Canonteign Falls, Fingle Bridge, Castle Drogo, Devon Guild of Craftsmen - Bovey Tracey, Ashburton which is full of antique shops or take coastal walks on the cliffs at Teignmouth and Shaldon across the Teign estuary.

There are fabulous places to eat nearby; Gidleigh Park - a 2 Michelin starred restaurant, Endsleigh Hotel near Tavistock is accessed by a great car ride over the moor, Darts Farm at Exmouth is an award winning farm shop which sells everything plus has a delicious cafe, The Crab Shack in Teignmouth, The Turf pub overlooks the Exe and is accessed only on foot or by bike, it can also be reached by taking the ferry from Topsham across the estuary and last but not least, The River Exe Cafe which is a floating restaurant on the River Exe, which offers amazing food (summer season only).

Wedding venue

The Owners run The Great Barn which you see when you drive in the spectacular entrance. This is an amazing wedding venue of some renown and there is a smaller barn available for smaller parties, perfect if you're considering a special family celebration. These barns otherwise are only available when the cottages are unoccupied.

Our refurbished former gatehouse in the Teign Valley promises a luxury dog friendly retreat for four, promising a rural location, a few miles from the coast.

We know how gorgeous our retreats are, but don’t just take our word for it – here’s what previous guests say about Figgy Cottage:

This cottage met all our expectations from the accommodation to the private garden and parking space. we enjoyed a meal at the 'Nobody Inn' which is within reasonable walking distance and loved our visit to the nearby Canonteign waterfalls.

Figgy Cottage has been beautifully renovated. It is well-equipped and is perfect extra accommodation for groups/families staying in Place Barton.

My husband, dog and I had a really lovely stay at Figgy Cottage. It was very comfortable and relaxing in a very peaceful location. The garden was safe and secure and there were lots of good walks for a big dog. It was great to be able to walk to the Manor Inn and The Nobody Inn to eat. We would very much recommend a stay at Figgy Cottage.

A beautiful property which we loved, and having the dog with us it was great to know the walled garden was secure. Great house, fantastic location and wonderful places to eat and visit nearby. We’d definitely stay again if in the area!

Peaceful retreat surrounded by lovely countryside.

We have a fabulous 4 night stay at Figgy Cottage. The cottage was comfortable and clean and in a great location. We took advantage of the recommendations and walked to Canonteign Falls, and ate at the 2 local pubs which were both a great evening walk with the kids. We’d definitely recommend the cottage.

We had a wonderful week here and only wish we could have stayed longer.

Figgy Cottage is beautiful and in a superb setting. Very clean and everything provided that you could need. We would love to return again soon!

Beautiful cottage in a beautiful part of the country - would highly recommend!

A great location for four-legged friends.
