Peacefully set in a very quiet, secluded wooded valley, this beautiful old manor house and detached cottage, dating back to the 16th century, are full of traditional character and charm. Guests can enjoy shared use of the tennis court and indoor heated swimming pool shared with a neighbouring farm.

The Manor is very much a family home with comfortable furnishings, and enjoys a terraced natural garden to the front where wisteria, fruit trees and wildlife flourish, with superb views over open countryside beyond. To the rear is a lily pond surrounded by farmland, where Lily Pond Cottage (a cosy cottage for up to four people which is available seperately) is located. Both the cottage and Crabadon Manor enjoy a splendid position, quite remote in location off the beaten track and tucked away in the heart of the South Hams countryside, the most southerly part of Devon, with a wonderfully mild climate where many flowers still bloom in December.

Beautiful sandy beaches, the nearest is Slapsands, also Bigbury & Burgh Island are easily reached and the rugged splendour of the Dartmoor National Park is 6 miles. Dartmouth Golf & Country Club are in easy reach - 6 miles. Woodlands Country & Leisure Park - 4 miles away.
