About Signal Box Cottage

Sitting next to the original train station, and built in 1893 on the Primrose Line, many of the original signs and features have been retained. This holiday cottage in Devon is an ideal base to explore the beautiful area of South Devon. Set on the outskirts of Loddiswell village, The Signal Box has been lovingly converted, keeping its charm but with modern convenience inside.

Signal Box Cottage has an 'upside down' layout, the open plan kitchen and lounge makes the most of the lovely views with wood burning stove and fully fitted kitchen. The spiral staircase leads down to a large double bedroom and a single bedroom with pull-out bed.

Lovely gardens and walks straight from your doorstep and with the river running alongside the land, this is the ideal spot for lovers of the great outdoors. Outside you can enjoy a lovely BBQ sitting right next to the old railway line and if you choose not to travel too far, the nearby Café in the garden centre serves up some lovely meals. Those interested in The Railway Heritage and fishing will adore this property, whilst those wishing to shop can explore fabulous Kingsbridge.

Come and enjoy the ambience of days gone by in this unique property.

Described by the Great Destinations Radio Show as one of the most unusual places to stay in the UK. Listen to the full interview here.

"The cottage was extremely well-appointed - very comfortable and a delight to stay in. Nikki and Richard - the hosts - were the most charming, friendly and helpful couple who made us feel very much at home. We loved the extra touches of fresh fruit, toiletries, biscuits, tea and coffee and -most of all - the delicious home-made bread and marmalade. The property is in a wonderful location with walks from the door through glorious woods alongside the river Avon - perfect. I would highly recommend this property."
