Higher Bowden Holiday Cottages lie in a spectacular setting on a south facing hillside in an area of outstanding natural beauty with views down to the sea. The peacefulness of the surrounding landscape and views over the beautiful South Hams countryside do however belie your closeness to all the essentials of everyday life.
The beautiful port of Dartmouth
The nearest pubs, restaurants, church, Post Offices, grocery stores and newsagents are only 1.5 miles away in the local villages of Strete and Stoke Fleming. The nearest town is Dartmouth (four miles), a wonderfully scenic place boasting the Royal Naval College and other sites of historic interest. There are churches of various denominations, a small hospital with a casualty department, and many interesting shops. The number of quality restaurants and other eateries in Dartmouth is quite remarkable. It also boasts four supermarkets (including Sainsbury, Lidl, M & S Food) and enough delicatessens, greengrocers, butchers, healthfood stores, market stalls, bakeries and take-aways to provide all of your food requirements. Or you can travel a few miles further to Totnes, another historic town now rich with 'alternative' New Age culture, and stock up in the Morrisons supermarket there.
