Venn Byre Ref: E3528

This 70-acre Dorset Sheep farm is set in the glorious countryside of South Hams, a uniquely lovely region boasting the mildest year-round climate in Britain. Four very comfortable cottages are scattered around the owners’ farmhouse, varying from a delightful little ‘hideaway’ overlooking the duck pond, to two adjoining cottages, which can be interconnected to accommodate up to 12 people.

Dartmoor National Park lies within easy reach – wild ponies, the Dartmoor Wildlife Park, Widecombe in the Moor and Buckfastleigh Abbey are just some of its attractions. National Trust properties at Saltram House – a magnificent mid-18th century mansion – and Coleton Fishacre are a short drive as is Burgh Island, of Agatha Christie fame. Plymouth and the Eden Project are further afield but afford excellent day trips. Closer to home, good walking, riding and golf can be enjoyed locally, and there are two village pubs within 0.25 miles and shops in Wrangaton, 2 miles.
