Garden Cottage Ref: E3473

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. With its fishing lake stocked with carp, tench and bream (fishing is free of charge for 2 rods (barbless hooks), 3 hours per day) and acres of farmland to which visitors enjoy access, Venn Farm provides a wonderfully relaxing holiday retreat, yet is only two miles from good roads that make it easy to explore further afield. Superb sandy beaches at Mothecombe and Bigbury-on-Sea, and a variety of water sports at the picturesque twin villages of Newton Ferrers and Noss Mayo are all within about half an hour’s drive.

Situated on the edge of the Dartmoor Wildlife Trust Nature Reserve and within 24 acres of tranquil meadowland, Little Dunley Cottages have been carefully restored and finished to a very high standard. Pristine and tastefully furnished they enjoy pleasant views overlooking the lakes and surrounding countryside. Each of the properties has its own private outdoor secluded seating area and are ideal for family gatherings, celebrating a birthday or anniversary or for those who wish to escape and unwind on a holiday in a truly magical place. Guests can enjoy carp fishing within the grounds, as well as an indoor heated swimming pool, all-weather hard tennis court and games room. Just a few miles off the Devon Expressway, the holiday cottages are well situated for all attractions such as sandy beaches at Teignmouth, Dawlish and Sidmouth, and tourist attractions. A haven for birdwatchers, and walkers will enjoy the many stunning walks in the area. Pretty Bovey Tracey, one mile, with its numerous shops, pubs and cafes, is known as the ‘Gateway to Dartmoor’, which has one of the best known national parks, offers stunning scenery to ride, walk and fish in. There are a variety of golf clubs nearby. The locality offers a hugely varied range of walks, through woodland, along the coast or nearby on Dartmoor. Dartmoor has so much to offer from its heather-clad tors to dramatic landscapes, Dartmoor ponies, to quaint villages offering Devon cream teas. For a family day out take a trip to Crealy, or spend a day in Exeter, visit the magnificent cathedral, shops, take a look around the quay where there are little caves turned into shops, or walk the canal path and find the hidden pubs only reached by foot. Torquay offers boat trips from the harbour over to Brixham, or visit Living Coasts where penguins wander freely. Further afield visit the Eden Project or Plymouth to take in the Barbican and the Hoe, or visit the huge aquarium, another great day out. Agatha Christie’s house at Greenway is a must for fans of crime novels. There are many National Trust properties all close to Little Dunley, also visit Dart Valley Steam Train, or Buckfastleigh and see the otters. There are many sandy beaches nearby, or spend a day at Lyme Regis fossil hunting. The Jurassic Coast is spectacular and it is well worth taking a walk on the coastal path. Shop 1 mile.

With wonderful views over Dartmoor and situated within South Devon countryside, this stunning complex of barn conversions (Refs HHHX and HHHW) was once part of the Stover Estate. Converted in early 2008 in a contemporary style and equipped to a high standard, with the addition of modern day comforts, they make the perfect place for couples, families and larger parties wishing to holiday together.
They offer wonderful all year round accommodation, with each cottage boasting its own patio area, with garden furniture and barbecue. Once a working farm and an old miniature railway site, Gorse Blossom Farm has some 40 acres, where guests can wander around at their leisure and which offers a haven for wildlife, including birds of prey, badgers and the lesser horseshoe bat, which has made its home here. The indoor games room just opposite the cottages will keep children and adults entertained as well as an all weather surface tennis court.
Being close to the A38 makes this the perfect place from which to explore South Devon, Torquay (with its sandy beaches, 12 miles), Plymouth, 25 miles (to see the Hoe, the Barbican, the National Marine Aquarium which is ideal for children and adults) and the Eden Project (approximately
1½ hours drive) is a fabulous day out. Crealy Adventure Park is 20 miles. Exeter has a magnificent cathedral and quay, whilst a boat trip can be taken up the river to two stunning pubs. There are many villages to explore and stop off for a Devon cream tea. Dartmoor is on the doorstep, with its stunning scenery and heather clad rocky tors and ponies, and is a walkers’ paradise at any time of year, with Becky Falls (rocks and waterfalls) 8 miles. Paignton not only has more sandy beaches, but also a famous zoo.
Visit the South Hams, taking in Kingsbridge, Salcombe and Dartmouth. Go the other direction and take in the Jurassic Coast, or visit Beer, Branscombe and Seaton to take a ride on the Seaton Tramway. There is so much to see and do that visitors will have to keep coming back year after year to take it all in. Shop 500 yards, pub ½ mile.
