  • "Had a comfortable stay at."

    The Farmhouse. Nice comfy beds and well equipped kitchen. The description of the property is accurate. Unfortunately the weather wasn't good so we couldn't take advantage of the outside area as much as we would have liked. Lovely nearby pub for meals when bbq wasn't possible.

  • "It should say in the details that when your sat nav said you reached your destination to go on for a never half a mile more."

    We found it ok but some people in your group turned around because there was no building around

    The Farmhouse is , as described ,exactly.75 miles down a no through country lane from the main road running into Kingsbridge from the A38.It passes several other properties with the same postcode but with the name of the properties on the facade or walls facing the lane. There are very few properties with the same postcode down the lane before reaching us and we are sorry if several of your party found the farm and farmhouse difficult to locate. Once in this “ no through”lane, because of its “dead end “status, if they had kept going past the 1/4 mile mark to the .75 mile distance as described,,there should have been no chance of not locating the property, as it is also easily seen (and named on the fence of the garden )on the RHS side of the lane. As it is a farm we own the land on both sides of the lane preceding our actual farmhouse and buildings so that part of the farm obviously shares the same postcode, but, has no buildings with it until you reach the farmhouse ( located on the side of same lane) Multiple twisty little lanes are a feature of the South Hams countryside but the upside is their nature does mean the destination is generally peaceful and secluded from the traffic noise of main roads once you have successfully negotiated them! We do hope, (other than this arrival blip for some of your party) that you all enjoyed the characterful property and its scenic location in this beautiful river valley . And , of course,the wonderful weather we experienced in June! Property Owner

After unloading your personal belongings, cross the threshold into the hallway of your new home-from-home to an inviting sitting room, adorned with a stylish wood burning stove and Sky TV so you can delight in some light entertainment after a long day of exploring the local area.

As the designated chef becomes acquainted with the well-equipped kitchen, boasting traditional larder cupboards and all the necessary appliances required to have a successful self-catered stay, make your way from the sitting room, through to the dining room where you can settle down to feast.

The dining room, featuring an antique table for ten, an antique Welsh dresser, and a sofa, also has access to the garden, so you can reflect on your favourite memories so far whilst planning for the days ahead around the table, or out in the luscious greenery.
