The Flete Estate

About us

Welcome to the magical 5,000 acres private Flete Estate on the South Devon Coast, set in an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI). We are also perfectly located on the South West Coast path and with direct foot access to the Erme-Plym trail and onto beautiful Dartmoor.

Step back in time and enjoy nature at its best with large broadleaf woodlands, 7 miles of private drives, rolling pastures and cliff paths.

There are also three sandy private beaches on the Estate to choose from and to make it more appealing the estuary waters are especially suitable for paddle boarding, windsurfing, sailing and kayaking.  Our holiday cottage guests are also welcome to hire out The Victorian beach house situated at the far side of Mothecombe Beach for the day for a picnic, we provide drinking water, a kettle and frying pan as well as kitchen roll and everything you will need to get a roaring fire going and help yourself to the supply of logs. You can use the Beach House right on into the evening.

Tucked away in spectacular surroundings are nine unique self catering holiday cottages.  Each cottage is an individual as you from a cosy mill cottage that can sleep between 2 - 5, a row of coastguards cottages right above the beach which can accommodate up to 6 guests, a gamekeeper’s cottage tucked away from the world in the woods with the most amazing view over the Erme Estuary. To our larger properties Efford House famous for its role in Sense and Sensibility to the jewel in the crown a large grade II Manor House – Pamflete House which makes the ideal celebration home.  With breathtaking views over the valley and beyond to the sea this magnificent house can accommodate up to 18 of your family and friends. Whether you are a couples seeking a retreat away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life or holding a large family gathering we have cottages for each occasion.   

Most of our holiday cottages are within 10 minutes’ walk of the unspoilt Erme estuary with its sandy beaches, gentle surf.  You can enjoy walking, bird watching, fishing, star gazing, photography or messing about in boats, without even leaving the Estate.

All of our cottages are self catering and are provided with well equipped kitchens, linen, a complimentary basket of logs on arrival and WiFi. You don’t need to leave your pets behind either as we welcome up to two dogs per holiday cottage too.
