Fancy a last minute bargain on a holiday in the South West? Helpful Holidays are giving 20% off the price of this luxury cottage in the remaining weeks of July.

A mile from Aveton Gifford, South Hams, two very special places sit: a well converted barn and a remarkable Grade II listed former music room (L249). Walk down 300 yards of a tree-lined lane to a sunny courtyard with fountain and flowers shared with the friendly owners, then walk through to the walled garden with a beautiful lawn and fig and walnut trees then through to yet another garden with 6 grassy acres with a pond and large trees and spring water.

The Music Room is magnificent: detached, huge and incredibly romantic, once home to concerts and recitals, brilliantly converted. Three steps up to entrance into open-plan living/dining/kitchen with vaulted stucco ceiling, four massive arched windows with stained glass border running the length of the room (46′ x 19′) generating light and colour, polished wooden floor (rugs), woodburner, comfy sofa, TV/DVD, piano, CD player, MP3/iPod; smart, discreet, fitted kitchen area (dishwasher, microwave); step up to the door to the bathroom (suite with 5’ bath plus bath-shower). The bedroom is the stage (up 3 steps), with 5′ four-poster bed, all stunningly presented and lit.

This is an amazing luxurious place to stay and for a great deal at minus 20% of the price in July you really can’t go wrong.
