Curling up on the sofa with a glass of red, following the winding lanes into town, or finding a moment of calm on the tucked away patio to share a spot of tea – 28 Althea Cottage is just the ticket for your special break away.
Built by the Prideaux Brune Estate in the 1860s, this two-up, two-down traditional cottage is thought to have been the first building on the high street. A home. A school. A library. 28 Althea Cottage has been many things to many people. So what will it be to you? The spot where you proposed next to the ancient well, or your first holiday with the kids? The most delicious meal you’ve ever eaten or the most relaxing night in you’ve ever had? Make your own history at 28 Althea Cottage.Accessibility
