Higher House Farm is home to Marilyn and Richard Tucker and our two teenage children. It is a real working farm - our family have lived in the area since 1720 - keeping cattle and sheep and growing cereals. Marilyn also runs two camping sites and a Caravan Club Certificated Location in the Village. She is an active member of the Parish Community Hall Committee and Richard is the Captain of the Village Pub's Euchre Team.
Mrs Marilyn Tucker purchased this cottage in 2010
We moved into the farmhouse in 2010 when Richard's parents reached retirement age and moved out. Previously we lived in a house closer to the village centre. The Village has a relaxed feel about it which is contagious. The idyllic coast and countryside , with rugged cliffs and sandy coves, is waiting to be explored. It is a fantastic place to have to work!
The property has it's own large garden that can be completly enclosed, useful if you have small children. The ground floor is all on one level and has the open plan Kitchen, dining area and lounge, two bedrooms and a new bathroom with electric shower. There is also two bedrooms upstairs with a new shower room. If your visit co-insides with lambing or calving guests are always welcome to help feed any tame lambs or calves we may have - please bring your wellies! The farm is on the edge of East Prawle, the most southerly village in Devon, where there is a Pub (the famous Pigs Nose Inn) a shop and a cafe (who also serve eveing meals). Salcombe is just 15 minutes away via passenger ferry. A babysitting service is also available if required.
"A lovely home in a fantastic setting, we can't imagine a better equipped holiday home - everything we could possibly need (and more!) is here."
"Fabulous holiday, great accommodation, a wonderful welcome and Marilyn, Richard and the children were so friendly, accommodating and generous throughout our stay"
"What a super location, quiet and secluded but still has the best Pub in the neighbourhood!"
