Our 7 peaceful cottages are dotted around our working organic dairy farm, set in unspoilt countryside on the beautiful South Devon coast. All our cottages are just a few minutes’ walk from the coast path and some lovely remote beaches and coves, whilst the wilderness of Dartmoor is only a short drive away. The wonderful Erme estuary and Mothecombe beach, with over 130 acres of sand at low tide, is just a couple of miles away.

Explore the nearby picturesque towns of Kingsbridge, Dartmouth and Salcombe or visit the historic port of Plymouth. Why not visit out of season and cosy down by a roaring log fire, or come and see the calves in spring? We are open all year and offer a Friday or Monday changeover day – so come for a week or a short break at any time of year!

All the cottages are extremely well equipped with digital widescreen TVs, DVDs, washing machines, dishwashers etc and all have private gardens with patio table and BBQ. Children of all ages are very welcome and we provide toys, games and books to make them feel at home. We put fresh local organic milk in each cottage for guests on arrival. We also have a lovely wildflower meadow with a delightful play area – complete with Alys the Tractor! Travel cots and high chairs are available free of charge on request.

Well behaved dogs are very welcome in all the cottages except The Mews and The Beach Hut. Dogs are allowed all year round on our local beaches and welcomed in our local pubs. Private, fenced gardens and walks straight from the front door make this a fantastic place for a holiday with your dog!

Which cottage to choose?

Lambside House is our gorgeous 5 bedroom Georgian Farmhouse sleeping 11/14 people. Spacious and welcoming, this house loves people! Fantastic for family get-togethers, a girls’ weekend away or a summer holiday for 2 families, this spacious house has it all. Dogs welcome by special arrangement.

Corner Cottage is a stunning detached cottage with 5 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms and the most amazing open plan living area. The extension is made from an exposed timber frame with glass panels all down one side giving fantastic views down the valley. Backing onto the wildlife meadow and play area it is a wonderful house for children. Dogs very welcome.

Shepherd’s Cottage is a lovely old farm workers cottage with 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. Very comfortable for 4 adults or a family of 6, it has a lovely garden that also backs onto the new wildlife meadow and play area - so great for children of all ages. Dogs very welcome.

The Lodge is a wonderful timber framed detached ‘eco-lodge’ finished to a very high specification but still welcoming all our guests, whether they be 2 or 4 legged! Perfect for couples or a family of 4, it is situated next to Corner Cottage and backs onto the wildlife meadow and play area. It is a wonderful cottage for children, and dogs are very welcome too.

The Mews is our romantic hideaway for couples. With its antique roll top bath, beautiful views from the bedroom and cosy living area, this is the place to escape to from the stress of everyday life. There is even a woodfired Hot Tub in the garden! Sorry no dogs at this cottage.

The Beach Hut is a very special place. Accessible only by foot, get away from it all for a couple of nights and enjoy total privacy on your own private beach. The Beach Hut has a compost toilet, outdoor shower and solar lamps and is a real ‘glamping’ experience. It is kept cosy by a woodburner, which also heats the water and there is a romantic woodfired Hot Tub outside.
