Old English on the Outside, Modern Scandinavian Inside
Phillimores is a 17th century cottage that boasts a traditional and Scandi-style architecture with modern twists. This extravagant holiday cottage is located in a valley near Kingsbridge, Devon. The place caters to visitors (up to 6 guests) looking for a luxurious and relaxing stay.
The exterior features a traditional 17th century style facade with white concrete walls and timber posts. The cottage is surrounded in greenery, with a spacious and steep rear garden offering a wonderful view of the valley. A charcoal barbecue and an open fire is there ready for families and friends to cook food and gather around on at night. There is ample parking space atop the rear garden, enough for 3 cars. Phillimore’s facade blends in perfectly with the other neighboring cottages, but hiding inside the old English exterior is a lavish Scandinavian inspired modern interior.
Modern conveniences such as smart TVs, microwaves, and Bluetooth speakers sit amidst vintage comforts like the Rayburn and a wood burner into a seamless marriage of two eras. There are three bedrooms housed on the first floor, with two super-king sized bedrooms and one bunk room. There’s a shared family bathroom on the first floor, while a ground level shower is accessible through an easy staircase found in the master bedroom. The first floor is accessible via two staircases found at both ends of the cottage.
A visit at Phillimores promises some enjoyable times strolling down the country side, swimming at the beach, having picnics by the garden, and gathering around a fire at night.
