Description

Carswell Farm Cottages - The Lodge

Close by to Corner Cottage, this "eco-lodge" has been built to a very high standard and is incredibly eco-friendly. It has a timber frame, triple glazing, solar panels and many energy and water saving features. Downstairs there is a hall, bathroom (bath with shower over) and an open plan kitchen and living room, with woodburner. Upstairs is a twin room which you walk through to a double room with king sized bed. The kitchen has a fridge/freezer, electric oven and hob, microwave, dishwasher and is very well equipped. It backs onto our wonderful wildflower meadow and children's play area - complete with Alice the Tractor! Dogs are very welcome (extra charge).


About the property

E877

Our 8 peaceful cottages are dotted around our working organic dairy farm, set in unspoilt countryside on the beautiful South Devon coast.

All our cottages are just a few minutes walk from the stunning coast path and some lovely remote beaches and coves, whilst the wilderness of Dartmoor is only a short drive away. The wonderful Erme estuary and Mothecombe beach, with over 130 acres of sand at low tide, is just a couple of miles away.

Explore the nearby picturesque towns of Kingsbridge, Dartmouth and Salcombe or visit the historic port of Plymouth. Why not visit out of season and cosy down by a roaring log fire, or come and see the lambs in spring? We are open all year and offer a Friday or Monday changeover day – so come for a week or a short break at any time of year!

We put fresh local organic milk in each cottage for guests on arrival. Carswell is also the birthplace of the Well Hung Meat Company so our visitors can taste award winning local organic lamb and beef.

All the cottages are extremely well equipped with digital widescreen TVs, DVDs, washing machines, dishwashers etc and all have private gardens with patio table and BBQ. Children of all ages are very welcome and we provide toys, games and books to make them feel at home. We also have a lovely wildflower meadow with a delightful play area – complete with Alice the Tractor! Cots and high chairs available free of charge on request.

Well behaved dogs are very welcome in all the cottages except The Mews and The Beach Hut. Dogs are allowed all year round on our local beaches and also welcomed in our local pubs. Private, fenced gardens and walks straight from the front door make this a fantastic place for a holiday with your dog!

Please don't hesitate to email or call us if you have any queries and I hope we can welcome you to Carswell Farm and this special part of Devon soon.

About Katherine Harding

The Sayers Family have lived and farmed in the area for generations, with Geoff's father buying Carswell Farm in the 1950s. The family farm was expanded in the 1960s with the purchase of Lambside Farm and Caulston Farm. So the whole farm now stretches for nearly 3 miles along the coast and the mild climate means that our cows enjoy fresh sea air and lush green grass all year round!

Katherine Harding purchased this cottage in 1949

Why Katherine Harding chose South Hams

We have lived here all our lives and still love it! The farm is set in an Area of Outstanding National Beauty and is also right on the South West Coast Path. The nearby beaches and coves are beautiful, peaceful and full of exploration potential! Even in high summer ou can often get the beaches to yourselves...

Unique Experience in the Devon Countryside

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful quiet spot, tucked away in the Devon countryside. We really enjoyed our stay with so much to do locally, from coastal path walks (5mins from the cottage), beach time, visiting the many quaint local villages and just enjoying some peace and quiet in such a nice holiday cottage! Highly recommend!

Coast/Beach:

All our cottages are just a few minutes walk from the coast path and there are lots of nearby coves and beaches, including our local beach, Wadham, which is only accessible by foot!

The wonderful Erme estuary and Mothecombe beach, with over 130 acres of sand at low tide, is just a couple of miles away. Or why not visit nearby Bigbury-on-Sea, with the wonderful Burgh Island, cut off at high tide and made famous by Agatha Christie!

Travel:

Plymouth is 12 miles away and has a mainline station.

Exeter airport is about a 50 minute drive away.

We are situated in a remote situation, so a car is essential to get around.

Distances:

The twin villages of Noss Mayo and Newton Ferrers, nestled across a picturesque creek, are just over 2 miles away, while Holbeton village is about 3 miles away. Both have lovely welcoming pubs and a local shop. Explore the nearby picturesque towns of Kingsbridge, Dartmouth and Salcombe or visit the historic port of Plymouth - just 12 miles away.

Further Details:

Riverford Organic Farm shop is at Yealmpton - just 4 miles away, and the lovely little town of Modbury (famous for being the first plastic carrier bag free town in England!) is about 4 miles away and has a fantastic selection of small independant shops - including a butchers, deli, hardware shop, antique shops and places to relax and have a coffee!

Ivybridge is aboiut 6 miles away and Plymouth is 12 miles away and all banks and shops can be found in both towns.
