Gitcombe Retreat is one of nine luxury high quality holiday homes on the Gitcombe Estate, situated near Cornworthy in the much sought-after South Hams countryside, close to Dartmouth on the South Devon coast.
This spacious unique holiday home was designed by award-winning architect Roderick James, and offers truly exquisite, modern and contemporary holiday accommodation for large groups wishing to holiday and relax in luxurious surroundings. An impressive oak frame design with two glazed sides purposefully set in a wonderful position on the estate boasts the most spectacular and unrivalled far reaching countryside views.
Inside, this family friendly property has been finished to an exceptional standard, furnished with chic interiors and all your luxury high end modern day comforts and appliances.
A high vaulted oak beamed ceiling and two fully glazed sides creates an impressive and spacious open living space with ample space for everyone to relax and enjoy these unique surroundings. There is a lounge area complete with stylish comfortable sofas, a log burner and flat screen smart TV with a Sonos sound system. Large bi-folding doors open out onto a wrap-around balcony area, where an outside dining table and chairs have been provided for those who wish to simply admire the views or starlight skies.
In the centre of the living space, you’ll find a huge solid oak dining table with enough seating for 10, a fantastic dining area for gathering everyone for leisurely breakfasts or a special family supper. The kitchen is well-equipped for a self-catering holiday, and includes an electric built-in oven and hob, fridge/freezer, microwave, dishwasher and coffee machine. A separate utility room is home to another sink, washing machine and tumble dryer.
This floor is also home to a double bedroom that has been thoughtfully designed to be fully accessible for wheelchairs and those with mobility issues. This bedroom also has an accessible en-suite shower room, wash basin and WC.
The three other bedrooms and a family bathroom are located on the lower ground floor. These include a master bedroom with a super king bed and ensuite bathroom, a double or twin room depending on your requirements and finally a double bedroom with super king bed, en-suite shower room and direct access to the hot tub and outside seating area. The family bathroom is fitted with a walk-in shower, Ashton and Bentley designer bath, wash basin and WC.
Outside, guests staying at the Gitcombe Retreat have exclusive use of a private garden area, again with those spectacular far reaching views and the added luxury of their own private hot tub and BBQ area. At the front of the property, there is also parking for 2-3 cars.
And if you can tear away yourself from this property, then guests at Gitcombe Retreat are welcome to use all the exceptional on-site facilities of the estate. Indoors, you’ll find an indoor swimming pool, along with sauna and steam rooms. There is also table football, and a children’s soft play room. Outside, there is a stunning outdoor swimming pool, hot tub, sunbathing terrace, as well as other leisure facilities such as a championship size tennis court, boules court, and children’s outdoor adventure playground.
