About Barney Fawcett

Flear Farm is family-owned and run by us, Camilla and Barney Fawcett, and assisted by our little boy Reuben. We have always loved the country and after several years chasing our tails in London, we decided that we wanted us and our children to have greater exposure to nature and a more traditional pace of life. Keeping the cottages and the estate looking beautiful has been challenging but very rewarding, and we get a lot of our satisfaction from giving our families a super holiday and seeing them come back again the next year.

Barney Fawcett purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Barney Fawcett chose South Hams

We spent several years trudging around with estate agents and looking over properties and saw hundreds of them. Flear Farm, it's period cottages and the surrounding area was so arrestingly beautiful that we stopped our exhaustive search immediately. The estate is in the heart of the South Hams and fabulously situated in the rolling hills of some of England most celebrated countryside virtually surrounded by wonderful beaches and coastline. Flear is a private country estate set away from the holiday hot spots whilst allowing easy access to the regions finest beaches and countryside for those who forage out of the gates and beyond.

What makes this cottage unique

The facilities her at Flear are truly exceptional. The giant indoor play barn (well equipped for a variety of ages from toddlers to grown-ups); the magnificent 40' indoor pool (filled with natural Spring water and maintained at 30 Deg C.) with accompanying family sized sauna and hot tub; the tennis court; the 3 hole pitch and putt golf course; our secluded valley with it's fruit trees meadows and stream; our magical woods (a sea of bluebells in spring); and of course our Dartmoor ponies Abby & Yara, and our ducks in the valley - are all part of what makes Flear unique.

Starfish@Flear offers group and private swimming lessons for toddlers and children right up to secondary school age. Ask us about term-times for the group lessons.

  • 5 of 5

We arrived on Friday late afternoon and the owner Barney made us feel very welcome from the first moment. Our children loved feeding the ponies and playing in the barn area. We all enjoyed the swimming pool and the hot tub. Great stay.
