L133 - Farthingfield
Cottage | 4 bedrooms | sleeps 8
Let by Helpful Holidays: 50 yards up a little lane from the creek in South Pool, and with stunning views of the estuary and the surrounding village, is this wonderful spacious 'upside-down' stone house, converted from two old cow barns.
Large, enclosed, paved courtyard area immediately outside with steps down to sunken dining area (huge slate-topped table/benches, stone-built barbecue) – great for alfresco dining and enjoying evening sun.
Beyond a five bar gate, an acre of sloping paddock overlooking the village, the bottom part of which is lawned with a play frame (Wendy house, slides, swings), ideal for children to let off steam.
A lovely spacious family house in a Swallows and Amazons-type area, just a stroll from an excellent pub.

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.
South Pool: picture-postcard village (prize-winning good food pub, fine church) at the head of a creek (sailing/boating) off the Kingsbridge/Salcombe estuary. Sandy beaches, slipway, pontoon and moorings for your boat, and pedestrian ferry to Salcombe at East Portlemouth, 3 miles. Lannacombe (lovely sandy beach) 2 miles. Start Point (lighthouse, cliff walks, sea-bird watching), 3½ miles. Kingsbridge, 5 miles.
