Slapton Sands is 3 miles long with 3 distinct areas each with their own parking and toilets. Behind Slapton Sands is Slapton Ley which is great for peaceful walks.
The Dart Valley Trail is a 10 mile circular walk up and down the Dart with crossings at Dittisham and Dartmouth. The South West Coast Path can be picked up by Dartmouth Castle with a number of wonderful walks along this great stretch of coastline.
"Greenswood is lovely comfortable cottage tucked away down a long farm track. Peace and quiet is the key here as well as a fantastic garden to feast your eyes on. The cottage still has the name plate of Garden Cottage, not Greenswood, which threw us a bit at first, but it has everything you need for a short or long stay. Ample parking, although down a very steep small slope, be careful if you have a low vehicle! The owners are very friendly and allow you to stroll around their fantastic gardens and ponds. Good location for getting around." - Janet - September 2021

"Hard to fault this home. It’s very peaceful because you’re so far away from a road. The cottage overlooks the most incredible gardens that the owners are happy for you to explore. The property itself is very cosy and well appointed. It’s a good base to travel South Devon. You’ll need to drive each day but if you’re happy to do that, it’s ideal" - Amacey - August 2021

"Very nice place, beautiful cottage in a lovely location with a stunning garden, very friendly hosts and would definitely come again!" - James - July 2021

"We loved our week in Greenwood Cottage. It is delightful accommodation for two people - an oasis of calm yet within easy access of amenities, the Dart valley, beaches, countryside and a wealth of interesting places to visit. The cottage is very comfortable and well equipped and the gardens which we were able to wander through, sit in and marvel at are absolutely beautiful. Our hosts, Roger and Helen, could not have been more welcoming and helpful. A thoroughly enjoyable week." - Thirlaways - July 2021

"Stayed for 4 nights at this lovely cottage with the most amazing oasis of a garden. Well located for visiting Dartmouth, Totnes, Kingsbridge and Agatha Christie’s summer house Greenway etc. The cottage is a home from home with everything you might need and would definitely recommend. The only negative is the king size bed for me which was a little soft for a bad back sufferer!" - Jane - June 2021

"Good, well equipped and clean accommodation. Great location for exploring the area. Beautiful garden." - Janes 2021

"Lovely cottage with beautiful peaceful gardens, perfect location to explore Dartmouth and Dartmoor, would definitely recommend and visit again. The Kitchen is well equipped and would recommend visiting Mr Lobb in Dartmouth market for some delicious fresh fish and seafood." Simon - May 2021

"The cottage was very comfortable and we had everything we needed given the current restrictions. A good location which was quiet with lovely garden and lots of wildlife. Has an away from it all feel while being a convenient distance from Dartmouth and main roads." Carolyn - September 2020


"​What a suprise, beautiful setting, very very quiet, everything you need is supplied even with covid restrictions any problems quick to respond. Pictures don't do it justice must be seen to be believed gardens are amazing. Many thanks to the owners." Rowan - September 2020


"We stayed at Greenswood Cottage and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It is such a sweet cottage bungalow which overlooks beautiful gardens including large ponds. It is lovely to walk around. We had a perfect peaceful getaway with everything we could ask for. We even had access to a chest freezer (for our sole use). There is plenty of parking and Dartmouth is just a 10-15 min drive away. An ideal base for exploring the many beautiful sites of South Devon. The cottage is well kept and very clean. There is a new two seater sofa and armchair which are very comfortable too. Helen and Roger were very kind and made us feel very welcome. We will definitely stay here again! Thank you again." Jason - August 2020


"
This is an ideal cottage for 2, with all you could need. Set in beautiful gardens, like staying in a National Trust property, and near to lots to see and do" Karen - August 2020


">Owners very friendly >Garden amazing >Cottage spartan ( Covid rules apparently) >Facilities satisfactory except settee - very uncomfortable needs binning >Would recommend - with some qualifications" J - July 2020


"The cottage on Greenswood farm overlooks the incredible cascading garden which fills the valley down to the woods. It's hardly the usual farm garden, where the farm itself is the main event. Created by the couple who farmed here for the past 20 years, there are ponds and trout stocked lakes. Enormous healthy plants and specimen trees. Blackpool sands is only 10 minutes away, and Dartmouth is convenient too. The coastal walks either side of Dartmouth are lovely too." James - July 2020


"We have been staying at Greenswood Farm for the past 10 years. Primarily for B & B, but for the past 3 or 4 years in the cottage since Helen and Roger ceased the B & B. We would not keep going back year after year if it wasn't excellent. One small point: the chair and couch in the sitting area could do with a bit of refurbishment or replacement, but I would not like the Baron's to think we have complained in any way. We have already recommended this property to friends over the years, but I understand that they are fully booked up for the rest of this season." Graham - July 2020
