This 19th century former farmhouse is situated down a private drive amid countryside on a working farm two miles from Torcross and Beesands.
Just a mile from the sea, it is beautifully refurbished, smart accommodation for big family gatherings and sociable groups of friends.
From the hall with its practical slate floor for kicking off boots, head into the stylish living room where you can snuggle up beside the wood burner and watch TV.
The big kitchen is the fabulous hub of the house in true country style, with a long oak table for leisurely meals together and a couple of chairs beside the wood burner for chatting with the cooks creating magic in the handbuilt kitchen area.
The younger members of your party will love playing table tennis and table football in the games room.
Anyone who doesn't want to climb the stairs will appreciate the downstairs en suite double bedroom, and you will find five more bedrooms on the first floor with comfy Vi Spring beds and access to four bath or shower rooms.
At the top of the house is the seventh bedroom peacefully under the eaves.
The terrace has been carefully positioned at the front of the house to give you great views over fields to the sea as you pour your sundowners and eat alfresco at the picnic tables.
Children can run free and play football on the lawn below.
If you fancy a stroll, head out on footpaths which cross the farm and take you to the South West Coast Path and down to the shingle beach, good pub and café serving some of Devon’s finest fish and chips in Beesands village.
If you prefer to cook your own seafood, you can buy fresh fish locally and head to the brilliant farm shop at Stokenham for delicious accessories to feast like kings.
For buzzing little towns, go to Kingsbridge or catch the pedestrian ferry to picturesque Salcombe from East Portlemouth where you will find tempting little boutique shops to explore.

The small fishing village of Beesands is situated within the South Hams area of Devon, within reach of the towns of Kingsbridge and Salcombe. Beesands has a Blue Flag, mile-long shingle beach, a village green, a beach shop and café, a fishing tackle shop, the award-winning Cricket Inn and a large freshwater lake, known as Widdecombe Ley, from where a variety of bird and wildlife can be seen. Close by is the small village of Hallsands, which has a dog-friendly, unspoilt beach, and linking both villages is the National Trust’s South West Coast Path. The sheltered South Hams Peninsula is in 'deepest Devon', a pastoral landscape of flowering hedgerows and ancient sunken lanes, carved into by the richly wooded Avon and Dart Valleys. This Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is decorated with white, pink and ochre thatched cottages, picturesque fishing ports such as Dartmouth, and is renowned for its stunning coastline, popular with yachting enthusiasts. Nearby, uncover the beauty of Blackpool Sands and Torcross, a historic site where the Normandy landings were practiced; explore the nature reserve at Slapton Ley, and stroll along Slapton Beach, feeling the soft sand between your toes. Park at East Portlemouth and catch the ferry across to the beautiful seaside town of Salcombe with its renowned estuary, or visit the Start Point Lighthouse, which is a few miles away. Beesands is a wonderful base for uncovering the unspoilt beauty of Devon and the South Hams, all year round.
