The West Country region

South Hams District covers an area of 350 square miles and has 60 miles of coastline. With its southerly aspect sheltered by the granite uplands of Dartmoor, the South Hams enjoys one of the mildest climates in the whole of mainland Britain. Indeed, the South Hams name comes from the old English word "hamme" meaning an enclosed or sheltered place.

The South Hams is a rich natural area and 130 square miles (337 of the district is designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) with 30.86 square mile coverage of Sites of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI). There are 62 miles (100 km) of coastal path and 16 miles (26 km) of beaches.

Approximately 30 miles (50 km) of coastline is owned by the National Trust and 47 miles (75 km) is designated Heritage Coast.

South Hams has such a diverse and beautiful natural environment combined with a mild climate that it's not hard to see why visitors return here year after year.

Two coastlines offer miles of sweeping golden beaches featuring some top surf spots and dramatic cliff-top walks, the Dartmoor and Exmoor National Parks provide perfect opportunities for getting active in wild, unspoilt open expanses and the quintessential rolling Devonshire countryside is an idyllic patchwork of fields, farms and overgrown hedgerows teeming with wildlife.

Charming towns such as, quaint old villages and busy fishing harbours are just the thing for sampling a traditional British seaside holiday.


At the head of an estuary named after it, Kingsbridge is reckoned as the capital of the South Hams - the most southerly part of the South Devon area. Kingsbridge and the lands around it passed into the possession of the Buckfast Abbey some time after the Norman Conquest and in 1219 the Abbot was granted the right to hold a market in Kingsbridge, his monks selling their produce of honey, fruit, vegetables and thick cream.

There are still regular markets on Mondays, Tuesdays, Fridays and Saturdays, and a Farmers Market on the first Saturday of each month.

A brief stroll around Kingsbridge soon tells of its maritime past - shipbuilding, ropemaking and other industries have been the town's mainstay, and shipbuilding enterprises prospered till the late 19th century building wooden coastal and oceangoing vessels.

The little lanes off Fore Street are very pleasant for an idle hour or two, and there's plenty of shopping interest as well as the excellent Cookworthy Museum - set in a 17th Century Grammar school and named after William Cookworthy, born in the town in 1705. It was Cookworthy who invented the English porcelain industry when he discovered china clay in Cornwall. If you require cultural diversion, there are two art galleries and a private cinema. There's also a leisure centre for more athletic diversions.

"Perfect for our needs"

Our whole extended family stayed there for two nights and it was perfect. Spacious, clean and comfy. We had a great time. Thank you! Bit tricky to find, but once there it was an oasis.

"All the comforts of home"

This is a beautiful Barn in a tranquil setting. The property is very well equipped and spacious. It has been well maintained and is a fantastic base from which to explore the surrounding areas. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The owner provided lots of information about the Barn, the area, directions etc., and all our questions were answered promptly and courteously. The “locals” were friendly and helpful, and in all, we cannot wait to return! This property is a credit to it's owners. You will not regret staying here. Thanks Kevan!!

We LOVED our holiday at Fingerling Barn. The property is in a beautiful area and nestled in a delightful little hollow, which in turn is in a most peaceful location.

The description was spot-on and the cottage had everything you'd need for a relaxing holiday. We were eight of a party, all family, and we all agreed that we had the most comfortable nights' rest ever!! The beds were great.

There were lots of lovely places to visit - Dartmouth, Salcombe, Burgh Island; even nearby Kingsbridge was delightful to explore.

We loved sitting on the patio and watching the ducks and ducklings waddling around; they were so cute.

We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this lovely property to anybody. You'll feel that your batteries have been re-charged after a week here (best make it two).

The owners are were very helpful and have spared no expense in making Fingerling Barn a wonderful holiday experience.

We appreciate your comments and is pleasing to read your family holiday was relaxing, your party of eight fitted comfortably into Fingerling Barn and enjoyed the peaceful and relaxing location. It is a regular comment how much children enjoy watching and feeding the ducks on the pond and will generally persuade one of the adults in the party at least twice a day to go out with them, it's great to see the youngsters want to go outside, the pond is the centre piece of the garden, You visited some of the most popular local towns and beaches all these attractions are listed and marked on a OS map in the cottage to help you plan where to go during your stay. We hope you return again, meanwhile we will make sure the ducks are fed!

"The weather helped make our holiday perfect but the quality of accommodation and cleanliness was the icing on the cake."

The weather helped make our holiday perfect but the quality of the accommodation and overall cleanliness was the icing on the cake. Congratulations! You have a lovely home which is professionally managed to a high standard.
The access is along extremely narrow quiet lanes and only leads to as a few properties, so traffic was not an issue. If you are looking for peace and quiet this is the place to stay.
We will certainly return to Fingerling, an excellent barn conversion.

We appreciate your comments and is very gratifying the hard work gone into Fingerling Barn during the recent renovations gives our guests the comfort and quality they are looking for and expecting from today's holiday rentals, we are committed to keeping our quality high and this is why we continue to be a part of the grading system through the British Tourist Board who have awarded us 5 stars. We certainly look forward to welcoming your family back at Fingerling Barn in the near future and hope you bring the good weather with you once again!
