"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.

"Character farm cottages in glorious countryside above an unspoilt hidden valley...with all-weather leisure facilities"

Robin Hill Farm is set in 14 acres of beautiful rolling countryside in the North Devon biosphere. The six properties, converted from stone farm barns and buildings, are centred around the old cobbled farmyard. The location offers a peaceful and secluded setting away from the daily hustle and bustle, yet it is only 3 miles to shops, entertainment and the beach. Inside the holiday cottages are well furnished and provide a relaxing haven after a long day sightseeing, walking, cycling or on the beach. The heated indoor swimming pool room includes a hot tub and a stunning conservatory attached. From the conservatory and decking area guests can enjoy the beautiful views over the valley towards Exmoor, whilst drying off or enjoy a coffee or glass of wine no matter what the weather. There is a very well equipped games room for all ages and for big and little kids video games can be enjoyed on a 60in plasma screen.
Outside the grounds have been landscaped to create two play areas, one with ball games, the other with playhouse and climbing frame.

Guests can enjoy the farm’s 14 acres of land and woodland walk which are host to a variety of wildlife and wild flowers with lovely views of Jennetts Reservoir. Nearby there is plenty to keep visitors busy. Many quaint villages await discovery - the photogenic ‘chocolate box’ village of Clovelly being of particular note. Appledore offers all the olde worlde charm of a fishing village, famous for its arts, crafts and maritime heritage. Beach lovers will delight in the wide sandy beaches, the nearest being Westward Ho!. Walkers can enjoy the spectacular scenery of the coastal path, while the Tarka Trail traces the steps of Henry Williamson’s Tarka the Otter and provides miles of traffic-free cycling (and walking) - bikes can be stored securely or hired locally. Award-winning farm parks, The Milky Way and The Big Sheep, will fascinate the younger ones. Gardens within 30 minutes’ drive include RHS Rosemoor, Docton Mill and Tapeley Park.

Tom’s Barn Ref: NJC

It has achieved a ‘Fields of Opportunity’ award for ‘Best Converted Barn Holiday Let’. Located in a small secluded valley that has been farmed by the same family for generations, the property derives its name from a popular first name within the family over that time, including the present one.

Cheltenham is a superb base from which to explore the full breadth of the Cotswold countryside, its villages, historic houses and internationally famous gardens such as Kiftsgate and Hidcote Manor. With excellent walking opportunities, three excellent golf courses within a few minutes’ drive and the chance to visit the many picturesque villages of the locality, including Bourton-on-the-Water, Lower Slaughter, Stow-on-the-Wold, and the many old inns that abound within an easy drive, this is an ideal spot for a country holiday with a difference.

Nestled in the tiny hamlet of Brigham, these former farm buildings date back to the 1700s and have been lovingly converted to provide wonderful holiday homes. All of the properties feature cosy underfloor heating as well as welcoming wood-burning stoves - ideal for those cooler evenings. Especially suitable for families with young children, the cottages have been individually decorated - each having been carefully designed. Outside, there are shared one-acre landscaped grounds to enjoy, with seating and barbecues for each cottage, which makes a perfect place for a summer picnic.
Ideal for families, as children and adults alike can enjoy farm life, gathering eggs for breakfast and feeding the friendly sheep, ponies, goats and guinea pigs on the children’s farm. For a different family day out, bikes are available to explore the stunning countryside on quiet, picturesque lanes. For older children there is shared use of a games room with a full-size snooker table and table tennis, whilst for the younger ones, a large sand pit, pedal tractors, trailers and diggers and various outdoor games are available. Within the locality there are also a number of golf courses, and riding stables are 10 miles away. Set alongside the Driffield Canal, it is the perfect location for those who enjoy ‘messing about on the river’, as there is a small jetty for those who wish to bring their own canoes or small boats.
Brigham village is noted in the Domesday Book and lies as a sleepy hamlet, yet just a few miles distant is the historical market town of Driffield. Delightful York (30 miles) is always a pleasure to visit, with plenty to do and see for the whole family. The magnificent Minster dominates the city, which is full of quaint shops, restaurants and pubs. Together with the Jorvik Viking Centre and The National Railway Museum, this historic city makes for an entertaining day out.
For lovers of the outdoors, there are numerous walks for all standards incuding gentle strolls along the banks of the canal, coastal walks or taking in the magnificent scenery of the Yorkshire Wolds. The beaches of Bridlington, Scarborough and Filey, all with Blue Flag awards, are easily accessible, and Hornsea with its ‘Freeport Shopping Centre’ is also well worth a visit. The area boasts a number of stately homes, as well as theatres and cinemas. Shop within 2½ miles. Several pubs/restaurants within 3 miles.
