A mile from Aveton Gifford, 300 yards down a tree-lined track off a lane, three very special places to stay within handsome former farm buildings: an airy converted barn (L248), a barn converted into a gallery (L191) overlooking meadows and a remarkable Grade II listed former music room (L249). A large, pretty, enclosed suntrap courtyard with fountain and flowers is shared with the friendly owners. Just outside the courtyard, a lawned walled garden (also enclosed) with camellias, fig and walnut trees, leading to another captivating garden with pond (unfenced) and 6 grassy acres with big wildlife pond (fenced), benches (terrific long views) and big trees to sit under, inviting you to rest, read or just enjoy the silence and let your mind wander (children should be supervised). L248 and L191 are heated by biomass boiler, using wood from local, sustainable woodland. Spring water. Arrival after 4pm. A peaceful, curative oasis, good for 'taking it easy'.... The Gallery is an 'upside down' cottage, exceptionally well converted by an award-winning architect, with private enclosed garden (table/chairs) at the back, opening to meadow, with the shared grounds and fields beyond for enjoying birdsong and stars. Inside, designed for simplicity and tranquillity, focusing on long, rural views and original paintings and photographs. On the first floor, wonderful living room with the views, woodburner, TV/DVD and iPod dock; roomy kitchen/dining room (dishwasher, washing machine, microwave, fridge-freezer, cooker with induction hob); big glazed doors to steps down to garden. On the ground floor, two bedrooms looking to the courtyard – a double with en suite shower-room (suite), and a double (6' bed or twin) with en suite bathroom (suite, shower over bath). Bright and airy in the summer or cosy as a winter retreat, with wonderful walks from the door and beaches within easy reach.

The Devon region

The South Hams: southernmost Devon; between the river Dart and river Tamar and south of Dartmoor, lush farmland and wooded river valleys turning to beautiful estuaries, its coast very beautiful and remarkably well preserved – sandy beaches and mighty cliffs between those estuaries, amazingly little sprawling modern ugliness. Inland too, away from main roads, it remains surprisingly peaceful.

Among special coastal places are Dartmouth; sheltered Blackpool Sands; Slapton's long curve of pebble beach and nature reserve lagoon; the cliffs about Start Point and Prawle Point, Bolt Head and Bolt Tail; East Portlemouth's beach and Salcombe's location and views; Thurlestone proving that family seaside places don't need to be brash; Bigbury's huge sands and the fun of getting to Burgh Island; waterside, oak-wood-sheltered Noss Mayo/Newton Ferrers; many others, less easy of access, are for you to discover.

Kingsbridge and Totnes, both old, attractive and small, are the towns at the area's heart; Plymouth – the West Country's biggest town, with Naval base, ferry port, theatre, cinemas, history, Hoe (great views) and Barbican (where the life is) – is on the area's edge. Dartington Hall is an arts centre (films, plays, music, dance) with lovely gardens. Pleasure cruisers ply the Kingsbridge estuary and Dart and Tamar rivers.

Aveton Gifford

Aveton Gifford: old village (pub, PO/shop) beside the River Avon where it becomes tidal. Within 5 or 6 miles are several villages (Bigbury, Bantham, Thurlestone) on an excellent and varied stretch of coast: sandy beaches, coves, cliffs, golf courses, the Avon estuary (fishing, birds), pretty thatched-cottage village centres. Kingsbridge, 4 miles.
