About this property

A Grade II listed detached thatched cottage standing in mature, well established natural gardens, in a quiet South Hams hamlet.

Believed to be late 17th century in origin Ramsland Cottage is a traditional and immensely characterful thatched Devon Cottage, with gabled roofline and eyebrow eaves. The cottage overlooks a sheltered valley in little known hamlet of Ford, just outside the beautiful village of Holbeton, close to the wooded shores of the Erme Estuary and the unspoilt South Hams coast.
The interior includes stopped chamfered ceiling beams and joists, traditional latch doors and many other typical characteristics of an old cottage. A useful kitchen and porch extension has been added in recent years, blending well with the original building.

Outside the driveway leads off the country lane rising up to a useful parking and turning area. A south and west facing garden terrace forms and excellent outside dining or barbecue area. Behind the cottage is a range of outbuildings and workshop space. Level lawn areas are accessed direct from the accommodation. Rising up from the cottage is the main garden and orchard, private and well established, adjoining open fields and with wonderful views over the hamlet and beyond. A further garden area is currently rented at an annual cost of £100.

Ford is a delightful hamlet nestling in a partly wooded valley about a quarter of a mile from Holbeton, in the South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The village includes a well-respected primary school, Post Office and general stores, the Mildmay Colours pub, a church, and a well-used community hall. The large and comprehensively equipped village of Yealmpton is about 3 miles away, Mothecombe Beach also about 3 miles, the town of Modbury 4 miles, and Plymouth City Centre and Waterfront 10 miles.

On the 18th May 2020, in line with government guidelines for estate agency, we resumed viewings and valuations of property. Where possible we will be minimising the numbers of viewings by first offering buyers a virtual tour. When viewings take place in person, social distancing and safety protocols will be in place.

We would like to remind all buyers that travel to the South Hams should be achievable in a day (round trip) and for those who live further away, a virtual tour with one of our agents will be offered until travel restrictions change.
