Property Description

"Colourful gardens amidst acres of farmland – just a mile from South Devon’s golden sands . . ."

Just a mile inland from the beach and sea at Man Sands, these five cottages enjoy a gloriously secluded rural situation on a 47-acre working farm, yet are convenient for the delights of picturesque Kingswear (1½ miles) and historic Dartmouth. Imaginatively formed within a charming group of barns, they are set in superb landscaped shared gardens. An indoor heated swimming pool and a sauna have been created in a separate building, and a further barn offers facilities for table tennis, pool table, ‘fun’ netball and badminton. A spacious play area within a walled garden is equipped with swings, a sand pit, adventure playground, large outdoor trampoline (with safety netting), a large lawned area with raised decking, complete with garden furniture and views over the surrounding countryside; and here there is also an indoor playroom with ball pool, climbing frame and a range of children’s ride-on tractors and cars for outdoor use. The gardens are a riot of colour, with flower beds, tubs, hanging baskets and an intriguing network of brick paths, courtyards and paved terraces. Further afield the estate includes a well-stocked one-acre fishing lake (rods not supplied). Children are welcome to help feed the animals; and there are goats, ponies, kune kune pigs, sheep, lambs, rabbits and guinea pigs to make friends with. The taste of rural life at Nethway continues with walks through the fields.
The cottages themselves have been meticulously converted, with careful use of traditional stone and slate. All are tastefully furnished and decorated throughout, and comprehensively equipped. All of the properties have their own patios with furniture (Hyssop and Lovage Cottages have their own lawned garden), and all enjoy shared use of a separate barbecue area. They are ideal for holidays at any time of the year – all properties are cosily heated throughout and this region is especially beautiful in the quieter off-season months. For Christmas and New Year holidays, each cottage has a festively decorated Christmas tree and the roaring log fires in all living rooms are ideal for the Autumn and Winter months. This peninsula is a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is renowned for its coastline, which offers coastal walks and a choice of footpaths leading to secluded beaches. The village of Kingswear itself is set on the Dart estuary opposite Dartmouth – which can be reached via ferry. Here you will find a wealth of things to do, including the Kingswear–Paignton steam railway, Paignton Zoo and Woodlands Leisure Park, to name but a few, and many Blue Flag beaches and hidden coves are within easy reach. Coleton Fishacre (NT) is 1 mile away. Torquay, Brixham and Paignton offer an array of seaside attractions and are within easy driving distance. Dittisham and Totnes make excellent river excursions from Dartmouth, and Dartmoor is only 45 minutes drive. Golf, sailing and riding can all be enjoyed locally and the nearby coastline boasts a choice of surfing beaches. Shops 1½ miles.

This makes Nethway Farm perfect for weekly holidays and Short Breaks, whatever the season.

Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. Tarragon Cottage was an excellent choice for our family, which included our grandsons, twin boys aged 22 months, and our 7 year old granddaughter, who loved the trampoline, our daughter,my wife and myself. The twins reaction on arrival when they saw all the toys they could play with and the animals in close proximity to the cottage, was simply amazing. The weather was not kind to us, but we all enjoyed the holiday, and the benefit of having an indoor pool, was considerable. A little more information on Kingswear itself would have been useful, as it is a difficult town to park in, and if it had been made clear that we could park in the MARINA Car Park, we would have travelled on the steam train to Paignton, by rail each time, thus saving the hold ups on the very busy roads in August. Apart from that, Tarragon Cottage is a great place for a family holiday. July 2012.
  2. First class setting and accommodation. June 2012.
  3. We had a wonderful time and i would strongly recommend it. Aug 2011.
  4. Such a family friendly location. Our daughters 3 and 5 loved the play area, swimming pool and feeding the animals. We enjoyed the peace and quiet and comfort of knowing they were really safe. Accommodation really nice, owners helpful but no intrusive. Would strongly recommend. July 2011.
  5. Good facilities all round for families, property is well equipped and comfortable. Owners very helpful. April 2011.
  6. The gardens are beautifully kept. This was a wonderful place for small children. My two grandsons loved the pool, though it is 1.2 metres deep. There were 2 friendly pigs, goats, ponies, donkeys,hens, toy diggers and tractors to ride, a trampoline, climbing frame and a playroom. They would have been quite happy to have stayed there all day. May 2011.
  7. Perfect for children with the animals and play areas. Sept 2010.

  17. Loved the accommodation and the surroundings - there was so much on the farm to keep everyone entertained that there was no need to go anywhere else! June 2008.
  18. Paradise for toddlers - animals, outdoor and indoor play areas, and loads of space to safely roam. Nov 2007.
  19. We had a wonderful week and our 14-month old daughter was in toddler heaven on the farm and never wanted to come indoors! The pool was well heated and always available and all the facilities were in very good condition. An excellent place for a holiday. Oct 2007.
