A beautifully crafted house designed for family living and entertaining


The beach about 4 miles, Dartmouth about 5 miles, Totnes (main line rail link to London) about 11 miles

Blackawton a busy and popular village, is located in the heart of The South Hams, surrounded by rolling Devon countryside.

The village boasts a popular pub, a general store/post office and a highly regarded primary school.

The nearby beautiful riverside town of Dartmouth offers a wealth of shops, boutiques, galleries, pubs and restaurants and is also home to the Britannia Royal Naval College.

Just four miles from Dallacombe, is the award winning Blackpool Sands beach, a sheltered course sand bay set amongst evergreens and pines with a range of watersports, shop and a year round cafe/restaurant.

The popular market town of Totnes, with its main line rail link to London is about 11 miles away.


Dallacombe, originally built some 300 years ago, is a detached stone built house that has been thoughtfully extended. The house has been designed for modern day living with the stunning kitchen set under a high vaulted ceiling with doors to the terrace, swimming pool and gardens beyond. Adjoining the kitchen is the boot room and the inner hall which has double doors leading to a decked balcony and leads to the living room, an impressive reception room with white painted stone walls, a high vaulted ceiling with exposed timbers and a woodburner.

The five bedrooms, all of which are double rooms are situated on the lower ground floor. The master suite has a bedroom with an ensuite bathroom and a walk in shower and a dressing room that is large enough to be used as an occasional bedroom. The family bathroom and well equipped utility room are also on this level. Doors lead from the hallway, utility and master bedroom to the gardens and terraces.

Gardens and Grounds
The grounds at Dallacombe extend to approximately 4 acres and comprise gardens with a gently winding stream and paddock. The wonderful gardens are largely laid to lawn with shrubs and flower beds and host a number of terraces and seating areas. The rear terrace adjoining the kitchen leads to an outdoor swimming pool which is heated via an air source heat pump.

The former double garage has been altered to now provide a single garage, external store room and a workshop/office.
To one side of the garage is a two storey annexe with a small kitchenette and shower room on the ground floor and with a ‘ship’s ladder’ rising to a bedroom and sitting room.
There is a ‘sports shed’ with power and light and ample storage for bikes and surfboards etc.

Square Footage: 4,013 sq ft
Acreage: 4.6 Acres


From Totnes proceed on the A381 towards Kingsbridge and after approximately 5 miles, turn left on to the A3122 towards Dartmouth. Proceed for about 3.5 miles, then take the right turn to Torcross, Slapton and Strete, continuing straight on for about half a mile until reaching Cotterbury Cross.

Immediately before the bridge, take the right hand lane, which is not signposted and Dallacombe will be found at the end on the right.
