About Jo Cooke
My name is Jo and my parents have lived in this area for over 40 years, first farming and making cheese then in 1990 converting - what used to be their milking parlour for their herd of beautiful Jersey cows, into this fabulous 10 bedroom house which has been popular with guests ever since. I now endeavour to create a happy, easy-going atmosphere and try to make your holiday special.
Jo Cooke purchased this House in 1965
Why Jo Cooke chose Ashprington
This property is always clean with lots of space for a big group to either be together or retreat into their own space (with all bedrooms having their own bathrooms). The wow factor is simple; when you drive down the drive the valley opens up into some of the loveliest river valley views Devon has to offer. This is a very peaceful spot, there is no traffic noise, no pylons and just the sounds of the countryside that welcome you when you arrive and continue for the duration of your stay. A great, affordable place to get away from it all. The bedrooms are bright and comfortable and all bathrooms are simple and clean.
What makes this House unique
People keep coming back because of the views, the facilities, the indoor and outdoor space, the fact its so close to the lovely town of Totnes yet in a unique peaceful valley. Plus it has modern, clean and comfortable accommodation.

Property was well presented in a stunning location with unforgettable views across the fields to the river Dart, the property was well equipped with 2 Hot Tubs that were in use every day from 6.30am 'till dusk, trampoline, swings, swimming pool, tennis court as well as all the indoor games such as Pool and Table Tennis, apart from that there were walks around into Ashprington and Totnes or wherever you wanted to go.
The accommodation was well planned out and suited our family of six couples including grandparents and plus nine grandchildren, with two newly born!
There were adequate cooking facilities and utensils, with a double oven and two grilles and a lounge that was hardly used as there was so much else to see and do in the surrounding area including our favourite places, Dartmouth and Dartmoor.
All in all a most popular choice for every one of our family, an unforgettable holiday...we'll be back!
We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay and look forward to welcoming you back again in the future!
