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.

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.

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.
