Featuring an indoor heated swimming pool and a separate shallow heated toddlers pool your children will never want to be out of the water. The badminton and squash courts are purpose built to a very high specification. In addition there is a snooker room, table tennis and skittles. In the grounds surrounding the cottages there are large open lawned areas, BBQ areas, a tennis court and approach golf.
All the cottages are very comfortably furnished with leather sofas and pine or oak furniture and well equipped kitchens, making your self catering holiday one to enjoy and remember. 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, children to have fun, and grandparents to join in too.
Away from the farm there are many interesting places to explore, the on-site tourist information room will provide plenty of ideas for days out. A mile away, the little village of Harbertonford has a small village shop, a pub and post office, and the village of Morleigh, 1 mile, has a pub serving food. The South Devon coastline, close at hand, has many beautiful beaches and coves, scenic walks and pretty villages including Blackpool Sands and Slapton just to name two in the region.
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 or a day spent visiting Dartmoor National Park with its hundreds of acres of wild rugged moorland, both about 4 miles away.
