About the property


Wigford Farmhouse and The Chalet both provide relaxing bases for the perfect beach holiday. They are booked separately, and some bigger groups like to book both. (NB Chalet photos are after farmhouse photos: keep scrolling for these, and the interiors all have a written description under the photo so that you can tell what's what. You may have to scroll down to see the description.) Each has its own private garden as well as use of the large shared play areas and large games barn. Please note use of all facilities is at guests' own risk.

15 minutes drive from surfing/barbecue/family beach at Bantham. Half hour to 'cool' Totnes. 15 minutes from Dartmoor. Close to Salcombe and Dartmouth. Walks to the River Avon start outside the door. You can even plan your walk along the river to end with a delicious lunch or home-made cream tea at local family-run garden centre. South Devon is a designated area of outstanding natural beauty. The South West Coast Path is just 15 minutes from Wigford and Dartmoor is a mere 15 minutes in the other direction: every day of your holiday the choice is yours!

The market town of Kingsbridge is five miles down the road, with great local food shops and a leisure centre. The immediate locality of Loddiswell boasts a pub and two shops, including a very helpful post office, a fabulous local butcher, a garden centre with a cafe selling cakes to die for and a chilli farm with cafe and shop.

If you require a supermarket grocery delivery Tesco and Waitrose do one. Sainsbury's also deliver locally.

About Anthony Johnson

Wigford Farm is in the most amazing location. Now that my children have mostly left home it's a joy to share it with holiday-makers throughout the year. Deep in the countryside and yet only a 15 minute drive to some of the most stunning beaches in the country; we can hardly believe our luck.

What makes this chalet unique

We delight in telling people how they can walk out of the front gate and follow a fairy tale path through woodland to be at the River Avon at Topsham Bridge in 10 minutes. If you've never seen a Devon river, this is something else... from sparse and clear in the summer, to a raging torrent if it's been wet for long, The Avon is ever changing; reflecting nature in her changes by the day.

On a clear night we're still amazed by the number of stars you can see...

Loved the chalet

  • 5 of 5

Good communication from Ant prior to the booking, and the property was easy to find using his directions, and he was there to greet us and show us around. Although in the grounds of the larger farmhouse, the chalet is private and separate. Our 10 year old loved the zip wire, swings and trampoline, and the space to play and explore. We used the games barn some evenings too. The chalet is quirky, plenty of space for our little family. The kitchen equipment is basic, but sufficient if, like me, you do not intend to cook on holiday.

The location is ideal for exploring the coast, and the Moor and there are lots of tourist attractions within an easy drive. We particularly enjoyed the River Dart Country Park, Lydford Gorge and the model village in Babbacombe.

If we return to the area we would book here again, we loved it.

Lovely little chalet in an idyllic setting

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful holiday here. The chalet is simple but rustic and it is in an amazing, peaceful and rural setting. It makes the ideal base to explore wonderful beaches, we did a different one every day! We also could get to Dartmoor easily. My husband recommends sea-kayaking at Dartmouth and we really got very excited to go crabbing for the first time! Our son loved playing with the children from the farmhouse and they had a great time in the tree house, on the swings and zip wire. It was a bit chilly and damp one evening , so we lit the stove and the chalet got warm in no time, very cosy! On the other end of the scale , we enjoyed a very pleasant BBQ outside.

Ant and Cornelia were very helpful and little touches like a vase of flowers and the local weekly newspaper all added to the welcome.

We had a wonderful week in the Chalet. The surroundings are fantastic, really a treasure in it's kind.

The Chalet was basic but comfortable, enjoying the early sunrise with a nice cup of tea on the veranda is just heaven.

My kids(14yrs and 11ysr) loved the trampoline, table tennis/soccer and the tree house.

We went surfing at Bantham beach, took a nice walk at River Avon. Salcombe is a must see, beautiful place hidden in a bay.

The Pub at California cross was also very nice.

For us a week was a bit on the short side, we wanted to see so much more.

Last but not least; Ant was a good host. Just ask and you got good advice.

If you like the pictures for this property; in real life it's better!
