The Property

Pebble Cottage is a stunning characterful cottage that would provide an idyllic home as well as a holiday home or country retreat beside the sea. The origins of this historic property date back to the early 1800’s. It was fully re-designed, renovated and remodelled to current building standards from the original stone walls, maintaining most of its original features, in 2014 by its current owners. The property offers three bedrooms, a luxury family bathroom and an attractive living room with multi-fuel burner. Another particular feature of the cottage is the raised roof garden with delightful views of both the surrounding countryside and the Start Bay coastline.


A half glazed stable door with natural slate tiled canopy above leads into the attractive living room. This room benefits from a stone fireplace with multi fuel burner, engineered Oak flooring and a pretty windows seat. The room also offers a useful storage cupboard and book shelving. Stairs lead up to a lower landing area and a quality fitted kitchen. This bespoke kitchen has been cleverly designed and offers a range of fitted units and breakfast bar with ceramic Belfast sink, built in and combination ovens, induction hob, fridge/freezer and dishwasher. Natural light floods from a roof lantern above.

The landing leads on to a light and airy first floor again flooded with natural light from above. There are two bedrooms one double and one currently used as a study. Both enjoy wooden shutters and country views to the front. The bathroom offers a luxury white suite with a slipper bath and large shower cubicle set on a ceramic tiled floor.

A second staircase rises up to the master bedroom. This charming room offers wonderful country views and spacious fitted storage, wardrobes and access to the loft area. There is an original characterful exposed stone wall, antique wash stand and a glazed hard wood door leading directly onto the roof garden.

Key features

Resulting from the full renovation this property now also benefits from the following:

- energy efficient LED lighting throughout.
- electronically programmed, oil filled radiators.
- roofing insulation superseding current standards.
- unobtrusive solar panels for micro-generation and hot water.


Bickerton is a small hamlet of cottages and a working farm nestling in a natural valley some 600 metres from an unspoilt pebble beach in the southern part of the South Hams – designated an area of ‘outstanding natural beauty’, with the South Devon Coastal Path passing over the beach and the dramatic headland of Start Point and its lighthouse nearby. National Trust land surrounds the area which leads to many coves and beaches along this rugged and beautiful coastline. Kingsbridge, the local market town is situated some 6-miles away at the head of the Salcombe estuary. Easy access to Salcombe, Dartmouth and the A38 link to the M5. The nearby village of Chillington provides a local Post office and shop and a modern Health Centre.


The property sits in a pretty country lane with a step leading up to an attractive front stable door. There is also a private parking area for two vehicles located within a few yard of the cottage.

To the rear of the property there is a door leading from the kitchen to a small courtyard area with steps leading up to a terraced garden. This attractive area enjoys a delightful elevated view across surrounding country and the nearby coastline. Mainly decked with timber there is a seating area offering an ideal spot for al fresco dining and entertaining. This is also accessed via a gable end doorway leading from the master bedroom.
