Along winding lanes that graze the eastern edge of Dartmoor is Sam and Felicity’s medieval farmstead. They’re a modern breed of farmer – young, passionate about their four small children and tribe of livestock – who love to flex their creativity. Tucked between the chicks and farmhouse the former piggery is a private, open-plan living space, with white walls, exposed beams and polished concrete floors, made homely by fresh flowers, rustic furniture and art. Snooze suspended in the king size bed, reached by a ladder and below the nifty sofa turns into two singles. The kitchen has all you need to cook – stock up on the farm’s organic produce up at the house, lovely Felicity leaves treats. There’s a separate bathroom with a shower, but bathing is al fresco: backing onto the orchard is the deck, where centre-stage a pair of cast iron baths await, their pipes full of hot water. It’s a seriously romantic setting for a soak, particularly under moonlight. You’re welcome to tour the farm and meet the animals, and there are plenty of trips to plan: walks, rides and picnics on Dartmoor, and South Devon beaches aren’t too far.
