In a peaceful and secluded setting, a mile from Halwell and 1½ from Harbertonford (PO/shop, pub), two cottages and three superb barn conversions at Bickleigh Farm, all sharing an indoor heated swimming pool (39' x 19' x 3' to 4'6" deep, available 8am to 8pm) with toddlers' splash pool, children's play area (swings, slides, climbing frame), large trampoline and games room (pool table, table tennis, WiFi). All are on a 300 acre working mixed farm (often lambs, calves and kittens). Conservation walks with wonderful views to Torbay and Dartmoor have been laid out across the farmland and the properties are positioned to each have their own patio and barbecue area, and share large lawns and garden. Professional catering available. These are very special places to stay. East Bickleigh (L2) and Oak Tree (L3) are the two comfortable and very attractive cottages on the same farm, cleverly converted from a superbly renovated, 17th cent. farmhouse. They share the indoor heated swimming pool, children's play area, trampoline and games room with L266, L267 and L135, and each has its own patio.The cottages have interconnecting doors and the dining area in one cottage can seat 12 people - useful for one large party. Many original features have been kept: beams, exposed stone, sash windows and large fireplaces.

Oak Tree has living room with TV/DVD, woodburner and beams, leading to conservatory with cane furniture. Fitted kitchen/dining room (dishwasher, washer-drier, microwave, freezer, larder fridge, gas hob/electric oven). Upstairs (stairgates), two bedrooms – a double (5' four-poster bed) with exposed stone and woodwork, lovely views down the valley and en suite bathroom (suite plus hand-shower), and a twin. Bathroom with roll-top bath (suite plus hand-shower). Outside, a sitting-out area (table/chairs, barbecue). in a peaceful and secluded setting, a mile from Halwell and 1½ from Harbertonford (PO/shop, pub), two cottages and three superb barn conversions at Bickleigh Farm, all sharing an indoor heated swimming pool (39' x 19' x 3' to 4'6" deep, available 8am to 8pm) with toddlers' splash pool, children's play area (swings, slides, climbing frame), large trampoline and games room (pool table, table tennis, WiFi).

The West Country 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.

Dartmouth

Halwell: small village (church, good food pub, filling station for basic supplies, bus route) in wooded farmland on the A381 between Totnes (town), 7 miles, and Kingsbridge, 6. Dartmouth (town) and the sea/beach at Blackpool Sands, 7 miles. Dartmouth Golf and Country Club (indoor pool), 3 miles; also, leisure park (activities, animals). Central South Hams base.
