  • “The swimming pool facilities were lovely and clean and warm.”

    Well equipped and all rooms a good size. Ideal spot for Torbay, Dartmouth and Plymouth. Gorgeous setting with view across the river.

The property

1½ miles from Stoke Gabriel is Sandridge Barton, a stunning Georgian house with an indoor swimming pool.

Set in its own private grounds above the wide estuary of the beautiful River Dart, this is an excellent family home, ideal for large gatherings.

A quarter of a mile of private drive leads to the house at the bottom of a wooded valley.

Elegant and spacious, the interior rooms are large and filled with light.

You enter through a flagstone-floored entrance hall, off which 2 steps up sophisticated drawing room with a white marble open fireplace and double French windows leading to the terrace overlooking the garden.

A smaller sitting room with TV/DVD/Sky and has comfy seating for six.

Access to the swimming pool through lockable double doors.

The kitchen is magnificent, with a wooden floor and smart appliances it’s well-equipped with everything that you'll need to cater for the whole party - the real heart of the home off which large L shaped dining (table has seating for 12) and snug area with open fire, flagstoned floor comfortable seating for 5, TV/DVD and double doors to patio.

The lower ground floor is where you can entertain your guests, stir up a cocktail in the bar area before eating supper in the formal dining room - perfect for dinner parties.

More stairs lead down to an annexe - not quite as splendid as the rest of the house but certainly as comfortable, with a double bed TV/DVD, en suite bathroom and a little well equipped kitchenette.

On the first floor are five more bedrooms, all gorgeous, though the spacious master double which looks to the river, has a handsome super king-size sleigh bed and a huge en suite bathroom is perhaps the most fabulous with spiral stairs down to the swimming pool..

There are two further double rooms plus a small double (4') and one twin bedrooms, and a bathroom and shower room.

The large indoor heated swimming pool compliments beautifully the Georgian style of the house - columns, animal murals and a large glass domed ceiling cover the mosaic-lined pool.

Two large French windows lead to a pretty terrace overlooking the valley, with plenty of space for lounging.

Outside, the house looks over its enclosed sloping garden, there's a stream and three ponds (unfenced, children beware) and a partly wooded valley beyond, leading down to the river.

You are welcome to walk the estate with its vineyard and beech and oak woods (bluebells), adhering to the Country Code and bearing in mind it is an operational vineyard and farm.

Behind the house is a games barn (table tennis, table football) leading through to a snooker room (full size table).

With so much to do on-site you'll never want to leave, but should you decide to take in some of the local area there is lots to see nearby; the village of Stoke Gabriel is well situated, with three pubs, shops and a restaurant, and slopes down to a little quay - good for crabbing!

There are sandy beaches at Torbay, and the quirky town of Totnes is just four miles away, or you can take a ferry to Dartmouth, or visit the National Trust's Greenway and Coleton Fishacre.

Whatever you choose, you're assured of an unforgettable holiday at this truly marvellous house.
