In a peaceful and secluded setting, a mile from Halwell and 1� 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, occasionally also used by owners' family and friends) 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. The Roundhouse, a magnificent, detached house converted from a barn, has seven bedrooms and seven bathrooms with living area and kitchen in an �upside down� arrangement to make the most of huge vaulted ceilings and views over rolling farmland. Adjacent but separate, an annexe (family bedroom with comfy chairs and bathroom) for four. To the rear, a spacious, private terrace (furniture, gas and charcoal barbecues) for all-day sun, and steps up to a lawn.

At each end of this level are double bedrooms (5� beds), both with en suite bathrooms (suites, showers over baths). Vertical ladder from living area to galleried mezzanine/den with comfy seating and wonderful valley views.

About this location

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.

Halwell

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.
