In the grounds surrounding the cottages, there are large open lawn areas to play and picnic, some BBQ areas, a tennis court and approach golf.
The cottages at Higher Poulston are made up of a cluster of lovely stone barn conversions of varying sizes(, the spacious period Farmhouse, which is fantastic for a large family and the newest addition, Wisteria House(ref 25998), a contemporary barn conversion with a stunning interior, accommodating up to 20 guests.
All the properties are comfortably furnished with leather sofas, pine or oak furniture, well equipped kitchens and modern bathrooms, making this a holiday to enjoy and remember.

Set within its own 9½ acres of private land, tucked away along a quiet country lane and close to a working dairy farm. Away from the farm there are many interesting places to explore. There is a little tourist information room on site and in here you will find plenty of ideas for days out and about . For your local shopping, the little village of Harbertonford, 1 mile, has a small village shop, a pub and post office. Also, the village of Morleigh, 1 mile, has a pub serving food. The ancient town of Totnes, just 3 miles away, has a truly unique atmosphere, with a range of quirky independent shops and bistros and is a vibrant and interesting place to visit, especially on Fridays when the market comes to town.
The South Devon coastline is close at hand, has many beautiful beaches and coves, scenic walks and pretty villages including Blackpool Sands and Slapton. Enjoy a day out in the riverside marine town of Dartmouth and take a cruise along the river to Totnes or the ferry across to Kingswear, and the quaint fishing town of Brixham, then ride on the steam train to Paignton or Buckfastleigh. Within easy reach are the English Riviera resorts of Paignton and Torquay, the boating and sailing centre of Salcombe on the estuary and the historic town of Dartmouth, nestling on the banks of the River Dart. Woodlands Fun Park is a great tourist attraction and fun day out for families, as is Dartmoor National Park, with its hundreds of acres of wild rugged moorland, both about 4 miles away.

Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. Recommend buying ticket for ferry from Torquay to Dartmouth - takes 1 3/4 hrs - have lunch in Dartmough - ferry from Dartmouth to Kingswear (only a few minutes) - steam train from Kingswear to Paignton (30 mins) - bus from Paignton to Torquay. (Regular service) Keep plenty of change in car - very little free parking even out of season. Sept 2012.
  2. Garden Cottage was fantastic, the cottage was beautiful in the most private setting. We were able to sit on the sofa and look into our huge garden which was so picturesque. It was very clean and spacious (even with two children). The grounds were fantastic. My son loved it. football, trampoline, swimming, pool, snooker, you name it, they had it. They even had Sky Sports in the snooker room on big TV for the football. The location was great. Around 15 minutes from Dartmouth and Totnes and around 30 mins from Brixham, Paignton and Torquay. Then only 40 mins to Plymouth. If our stay had of cost triple the amount it would have been worth every penny. We will absolutely be going again next year. Thank you so much for making our holiday perfect! May 2012.
  3. I have been going to this property for 12 years and its gets better every time. Neil and Rose are the perfect hosts. Suggest people try The Church Inn at Haberton for food! May 2012.
  4. Ideal for anyone who likes walking or with a dog as the sun lounge is perfect for muddy boots etc and in winter is heated so can be used year round. Jan 2012.
  5. What a wonderful find! It is in a beautiful location. The facilities are superb and always open! There is something for all the family. The owners are always on hand for help and advice but never intrusive. The atmosphere is friendly and relaxed. No rules and regulations - kids are welcome everywhere with no restrictions. Guests are left to just enjoy themselves. We have visited twice this year and will definitely go again. Only one thing -it’s a good mile to the nearest pub and uphill most of the way back - get a taxi! Aug 2011.

There is a full size squash court, separate badminton court/indoor football/basket ball court, full size snooker table, pool table, table tennis table and a medium sized swimming pool (approx 15m in length). There is also an office with internet access and a small gymnasium on the 1st floor of the sports building and a mini golf chip ’n’ put area outside. Jan 2010.
