The Old Farmhouse and Orchard Cottage are available for separate or combined rental, as one large house, the latter presenting an ideal venue for large family groups or friends that wish to holiday together.
The properties sit side by side and are located in 30 acres of tranquil Devon countryside with an old apple orchard, meadows, stream and natural woods for guests to explore and enjoy. Nestled in the valley a short walk from the properties there is a lake, complete with grass carp, small islands and a decking area. In spring, the orchard is filled with daffodils and bluebells carpet the woods, this is followed by a stunning display from the azaleas and rhododendrons whilst during the summer the apple trees are covered in blossom. Once a working farm, activities are now limited to making hay and maintaining the land, but cows and sheep often graze in neighbouring fields. The valley is home to plenty of wildlife including pheasants, ducks, moorhens, herons, rabbits, badgers, birds of prey, bats, swallows and the occasional deer and kingfishers.
For more privacy each property has its own private patio area for relaxing and bbq's.
The location provides an ideal base for your holiday being in close proximity to sandy beaches such as Bantham and Thurlestone together with sailing at Salcombe and Dartmouth. For walkers there are many local walks as well as the National Trust coastal footpaths that stretch around the dramatic South Hams coastline and nearby is Dartmoor National Park. The nearest golf courses can be found at Thurlestone, Bigbury and Dartmouth.
