Churchmouse Cottage is located in the heart of Yealmpton in the South Hams, an idyllic area in the south-west of Devon. 

Yealmpton is a quiet and historic village featuring two local pubs that serve meals, as well as an impressive Victorian Gothic church. There are also a handful of shops, including a convenience store offering a limited range of food and other essentials. It is interesting to note that Yealmpton is also home to Old Mother Hubbard’s house – a quirky stone cottage built over 400 years ago which is thought to have been where the famous English nursery rhyme was written.
