off a quiet farm lane, ½ mile from Battisborough Cross (1½ from nearest beach) towards Newton Ferrers/Noss Mayo, surrounded by rolling farmland with Dartmoor in the distance, an impressive, excellently converted, 'upside down' house. One of four (one attached), cleverly designed to retain original features from their former function as huge stone-built barns to Alston Manor Farm (original farmhouse and a little mixed farming remains) and thoughtfully laid out for peace and privacy. At the front, a gravelled drive (shared with one other property) to the parking area with gate off to your own enclosed, lawned garden and path to wide, stone terrace (tables/chairs, barbecue); at the rear, a peaceful shared, part lawned, part gravelled courtyard.

 

From the terrace, 4 stone steps up to double-glazed doors into superb, spacious open-plan living/dining/kitchen with lofty ceilings, exposed scissor-beams and polished oak floors; at one end, smart oak/granite fitted kitchen area (dishwasher, washer-drier, microwave, fridge-freezer, 5-ring gas hob/electric double oven) and dining table; at the other, two big, comfy leather corner sofas (large floor cushion for additional seating), TV/DVD; door to wardrobe area, off which smart tiled bathroom (suite plus bath-shower) and 2 steps down to a large double bedroom (5' bed, TV/DVD) with door to front terrace.

 

From living area, oak stairs (top stairgate) down to tiled hall with door to shared courtyard and three bedrooms, all carpeted, modern furnishings, some exposed beams – a roomy double (5' bed, TV/DVD) with en suite bathroom (suite plus bath-shower), and, along the hall, two twin: one with TV/DVD, one with two additional pull-out truckle beds (for use in this or the downstairs double bedroom), TV/video and French windows to courtyard. Between twin rooms, large shower-room (wet-room suite).

 

Stylish, smart, spacious. A great spot for exploring south Devon's beautiful coastline, beaches and pretty villages. Damages Deposit £200. Best for maximum of 8 adults, 2 children.

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.

Ivybridge

Battisborough Cross: hamlet a mile from the mouth of the beautiful river Erme estuary at Mothecombe (lovely sandy beach, seasonal tea room) and from the open sea (cliffs, coast path). Holbeton village (good pub, excellent restaurant, PO/shop), 1½ miles; pretty riverside pubs at Newton Ferrers/Noss Mayo, 3½ miles; Plymouth, about 10½.
