Featuring a fantastic leisure complex, with exclusive shared use for all guests staying here on holiday, the facilities are open all year around and offer something for all ages and abilities. There is an indoor heated swimming pool and a separate shallow heated toddlers pool. The badminton and squash courts are purpose built to a very high specification. In addition there is a snooker room, table tennis, skittles and short mat bowls. 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.
The friendly owners live on site and are happy to help. Many visitors find themselves revisiting Higher Poulston year after year. This is a very family friendly holiday complex; the ideal place for mums and dads to relax in, children to have fun, and grandparents to join in too.
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.
