Welcome to the Nuckwell Cottage Home Page!

Nuckwell Cottage, owned by Stephen and Sheila Sharley, enjoys a peaceful and secluded setting bordered by fields and cider orchards where sheep and cattle graze.
The days are often heralded by songbirds; and sightings of foxes, badgers, rabbits etc. are not uncommon.

The cottage has recently been refurbished but has retained many of the original features such as natural slate floors and old beams coupled with the benefits of a logburner and central heating.

It is approached from a large private parking area and is entered via the kitchen/diner which has an Aga cooker (winter months only), granite worktops, fridge/freezer, electric cooker, dishwasher and microwave.

This leads into the cosy lounge area which has a logburner, colour TV and video. An oak door leads onto the front lawn an ideal barbecue area with lots of low stone walls to sit on!

Off the lounge is a small lobby, with washing machine, which in turn leads to the downstairs bathroom with bath, w.c. and basin.

At the top of the wooden staircase there are three bedrooms - 1 double, 1 twin bedded, and 1 single, with a centrally situated bathroom which has a power shower, w.c. and basin. The larger double bedroom (twin-bedded) has french windows leading to a stone paved patio ideal for leisurely breakfasts on sunny mornings!


We provide non-allergic duvets and pillows with pretty bed linen. A cot, high chair and baby bath are available and a barbecue too! All electricity, heating and logs are inclusive. You will need to bring your own towels and cot linen. Nuckwell Cottage is exclusively for non-smokers and we regret that we cannot accommodate any pets.

The cottage is approximately 1/2 a mile from the rural village of Churchstow where local facilities include a Post Office village store, a church and a popular 13th Century inn that boasts a delicious carvery.

Picturesque Kingsbridge, considered to be the centre of the South Hams, is just 2 ½ miles away and has a range of amenities including a bus service, health centre, cafes, restaurants, art gallery, local museum, indoor sports complex and swimming pool.

A short drive brings you to the glorious beach and sand dunes of Bantham, a well known surfing beach at the mouth of the River Avon. This estuary is popular with fisherman and boating enthusiasts. Walkers can follow the coastal footpath to Thurlestone taking in the views of Bigbury Bay and Burgh Island.

The South Hams countryside is host to a wide variety of recreational facilities including challenging golf courses at Thurlestone (3 miles), Bigbury (6miles) and Dartmouth (10 miles).

There are sailing centres at Salcombe and Dartmouth and we are well situated for trips to Plymouth, Exeter, Totnes, Torbay, Dartmoor and the Eden Project!
