Sarah and I met while working on charter yachts in the Caribbean. 31 years ago, we bought Lower Merrifield in South Devon and eventually settled down here with our two sons and two dogs. The family loves the open air life here, enjoying tennis, cricket, rugby, golf, boating, swimming, horse riding and sometimes just sitting in the garden with a glass of something cool.
Tony Allen purchased this cabin in 2006
I designed this log cabin to be comfortable accommodation for young families as well as older people who will find it warm, bright and peaceful . The location has fine fine views of the surrounding Devon farmland. The deck, sheltered by trees, enjoys the sun from breakfast time to sundown.
The Log Cabin is within easy reach of Kingsbridge, Salcombe, Totnes and Dartmouth. Nearby there is a choice of beaches to suit all ages and abilities.There are splendid walks along the South West Coastal path or on Dartmoor. in the surrounding villages there are pubs where good food is served, and some very tasty beers brewed in small local breweries.
"Wonderful to return to South Hams after too many years. Everything about your log cabin is idyllic. Don't change a thing."
"A lovely log cabin in a beautiful and peaceful position"
"Our first visit to South Devon which we have very much enjoyed. Loved the log cabin, loved the sun rises, loved the views."
"We have very much enjoyed our stay in this very comfortable log cabin."
The log cabin was wonderful, it was comfortable, warm and very cozy.
The views around the cabin are lovely, we took our dog and he loved running around the area, the owners are not far from the cabin but you don't get disturbed.
I would go down again with a few friends in the summer, the only thing was the reception on our phones that didn't work, but then again why do you need to be on the phone when you have everything around you.
