Child friendly cottage, Devon – Coombe, Dittisham, Dartmouth, Devon

About Fingals Holiday Apart-Cottages

In a lush Devonshire valley, tucked neatly away and close to the River Dart, you will find Fingals - comprising luxury self catering apartments set around a Queen Anne Manor House, with a swimming pool, manicured gardens with plenty of green space for you and your youngsters to enjoy outdoor games and an indoor games room should there be a drop of rain. The babbling brook running nearby and the grass tennis court secure this as one of the most quintessentially English holidays you’ll have. It is relaxed, unique, refined and more importantly friendly - child, family and dog.


The Accommodation! Fingals isn’t your average self catering set up - its a million miles away from that and that’s why we love it.  No two apartments are the same, all are furnished to a very high standard with an arty eye, antique furniture and brimming with charm and character. There are six apartments to choose from sleeping 2 - 6 people. Larger groups can book apartments close together - ask at the time of booking.

Fingals Barn  -  sleeps 6 in 3 bedrooms, king size ensuite with private patio and garden, 1 twin room and 1 double room (there is also a sofa bed in the sitting room for any extras). Bright, airy,  open plan kitchen/dining and living area. There is a private balcony with a table and bench to enjoy drinks alfresco.

Wisteria Suite - sleeps 4 in 2 bedrooms, double bedroom with ensuite and access to the balcony, twin room bedroom with ensuite with access to the kitchen/living area. Living/dining area with a galley style kitchen. Balcony for alfresco dining overlooking the tennis court - remember your Pimms!

The Folly - sleeps 2 in 1 bedroom and there is a daybed in the living area for any extras. Set over 2 floors, bedroom is downstairs with separate shower and bathroom. South facing balcony. The Folly is a bright beach style accommodation with views over the Devon Hills and overlooking the stream.

Barberry Brook - sleeps 2. Barberry Brook, positioned near the pool and the dovecotes, with a balcony overlooking the stream is a bright, modern house set over two floors, bedroom upstairs with a bath overlooking the stream and a separate shower room.  Downstairs living and kitchen area.

Lower Mill House - sleeps 5 in 2 bedrooms. 1 double room and 1 triple room with double bed, a single bed and a small child’s bed. There is a large sitting area with a sofa bed (for any extras), and an open plan kitchen/dining area. A utility room houses the washing machine and dryer. Enjoy a bbq on your own private patio area at the back.  Experience a bit of history in this 19th century mill house, evidence of the original use still in situ - history lessons for the children to boot!

Upper Mill House - sleeps 6 in 3 bedrooms. 1 four poster bed with ensuite, 1 twin room and 1 double room with shared bathroom. Sitting room, kitchen has a utility cupboard with a washing machine and dryer.  Dine under the minstrel’s gallery or alfresco in the private courtyard. Soak up the last of the evening sun in the conservatory.


The Fingals facilities are all designed for family enjoyment. The pool and sauna are housed in a conservatory where artist Andras Kaldor has adorned the walls with a magnificent mural, exotic plants give a tropical feel and when the sun shines the doors can open onto the patio and the place buzzes with excitement. If the sun doesn’t shine head to the games room, there’s a snooker table, table football and a piano for acclaimed or budding musicians - ear plugs are not supplied.

In what was the old walled garden is an immaculate grass tennis court - balls and rackets available on site, table tennis on the terrace outside the games room and a croquet game can be set up on the lawn in front of the bar, there will be no complaints of boredom at Fingals. Nooks and crannies are plentiful, for hide and seek or equally for a bit of peace.

To discover the local area, which is simply beautiful, use one of the walking maps provided and get amongst nature’s beauty and feed body and soul. There are bikes available but this is only recommended for the adventurous.

If the walks and the bike rides aren't your ideal way of keeping fit then there is always the gym facility housed in the orangery overlooking the stream - there are worst places to work out.

If you have a group of 10 or more why not book The Upper and The Lower Mill together?  Although they are linked by an exterior staircase (between the two, private patios) you have lovely separate spaces to sleep and relax but can all dine together in the Lower Mill's larger kitchen.


The Area

Fingals is set in the South Hams, an area of outstanding natural beauty – it is remote and resides in the best of our beautiful English countryside. Head to Dartmouth, on foot (it is a four mile ramble), or head to Dittisham and catch the ferryboat. Greenway, Agatha Christie's summer house just across the river from Dittisham, has been spruced up, it is definitely worth a visit. The South Hams has some fabulous beaches for surfing, visit a castle, go canoeing, learn to sail, go rock pooling or crabbing, visit spectacular gardens …… come and enjoy every second of your holiday!
