The
Experience

Deep in the South Hams is a working organic dairy farm with six cottages – ideal for families and outdoorsy couples – and a beach hut for real adventurers. The coastal path is on the doorstep and the sandy beach a short amble. The cottages are nicely spread out so you’ve got your own space and each is charmingly individual: The Mews (sleeps two) is a stone barn conversion with a funky roll-top bath; charming Crofters (a rustic stone cottage) and The Lodge (timber eco-house) both sleep four and are super dog-friendly. Each cottage has its own garden/outside space, two have wood-fired hot tubs, there’s a fabulous kids play area, and you’re welcome to come and watch the cows being milked in the dairy parlour. Inside find open-plan kitchen/dining areas, roomy living spaces with wood-burners, comfy beds, cooking basics, and fresh meat from the farm – pop your money in the honesty box. Then there’s the stone cabin Beach Hut perched on a private cove – no electricity, compost loo, 15-minute walk from the car but the incredible sea views make it worthwhile. Heaps to do nearby or stay put and watch the sun set, glass of wine in hand.

Location

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Katherine Harding

  • All our cottages are just a couple of fields away from the stunning South West Coast and a short walk from nearby coves and beaches - fantastic for explorers of all ages!
  • The closest villages are Newton Ferrers & Noss Mayo. These villages are about two miles away, nestled on each side of the River Yealm where the boats float lazily on the water...
  • Bigbury-on-Sea is a few miles away, but with a cafe open all year round and seasonal life guards. Bigbury also has an amazing sea tractor to take you to Bigbury Island when it is cut off by the tide!
  • Carswell Farm is actually made up of three farms - Carswell, Lambside and Caulston. It stretches for nearly 3 miles along the coast and the mild climate means that our cows enjoy fresh sea air and lush green grass all year round!
  • Explore the nearby picturesque towns of Kingsbridge, Dartmouth and Salcombe, visit the historic maritime port of Plymouth to see where the Mayflower set sail to America or enjoy a visit to the famous National Marine Aquarium.
  • The beautiful estuary of the River Erme and Mothecombe beach are only a couple of miles from here. With 130 acres of sand at low tide, many well known productions - like 'Sense and Sensibility' and 'Hornblower' have been filmed in this stunning location.
