About the home
The Barn and Rose Cottage at Cotmore Farm have been artfully and imaginatively converted from traditional farm buildings to provide luxury holiday accommodation for six adults/children and up to 2 toddlers on 13 acres of rolling pasture just a mile from the sea in glorious South Devon.
The Barn at Cotmore Farm is a reverse-level conversion, with two heated slate-floored bedrooms on the ground floor, one with ensuite, an additional family shower room, and a separate laundry room, with washing washing, drying and ironing facilities. A glass balustraded staircase leads to the first floor, a lovely, light-filled space, with high ceilings, oak floorboards, exposed beams and roof lights, offering expansive, open-plan living. At one end of this huge room, comfy leather sofas and a widescreen HD TV offer ample relaxation opportunities; at the other a fully equipped kitchen will tempt you whip up something tasty for dinner. Double French doors give onto a sunny private terraced garden, with outdoor dining facilities and barbecue. From the terrace, a path leads to a sheltered apple orchard with a trampoline and a grassy area perfect for a game of football, boules or volleyball.
Rose Cottage at Cotmore Farm is a two-hundred year-old, stone-built stable block, converted this year into a bijou two-room cottage, perfect for couples of all ages, and easily able to accommodate a baby or toddler in a cot. Everywhere you look luxury beckons: contemporary oak furniture, heated slate floors and a marble tiled shower room are complemented by original art on the walls. Three sets of French doors to the garden ensure the cottage is filled with light, whatever the weather. A comfy leather sofa, cosy woodburner, and HD TV with satellite add the final, pampering touches. Rose Cottage has its own private garden, comprising a flagged and gravelled patio area with outdoor dining facilities and barbecue, a terrace planted with mature trees, shrubs and groundcover, and a well stocked herb garden for guests’ use. A gate at the end of the garden opens onto our own pasture, with views to the sea at Beesands a mile away.

Further details outdoors:
The Barn and Rose Cottage are located the heart of Cotmore Farm, 13 acres of gently sloping pasture, orchards and woodland perched on the south-facing side of a quiet valley that runs from the Salcombe estuary in the West to the sea at Beesands in the East. The farm is home to horses, rare-breed pigs, chickens, dogs, cats, in addition to a multitude of wild animals and birds - badgers, buzzards, stoats and weasels, tawny and barn owls, sparrowhawks, hares, wild deer, pheasants, peregrine falcons, to name just a few - that make it a paradise for nature lovers. There are plenty of opportunities to roam and explore, whether its a gentle stroll around the farm perimeter, or a more determined striding-out on the network of quiet lanes, footpaths and bridleways that lead from the farm gate. For younger guests there are animals to feed, trees to climb, a trampoline to work off excess energy, and more than enough safe space for ball games or hide and seek.
The West Country / Devon region
The South Hams, bordered by Plymouth to the West, Dartmoor to the North, and Torbay to the East, boasts some of the most unspoilt coastline on the south English coast: 60 miles of bays and coves, including the promontories of Start Point and Bolt Head. The entire coast, along with the lower Avon and Dart valleys, forms most of the South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The area benefits from a very mild climate - winters are warm and wet, while spring and autumn are often glorious - making it a year-round destination. Summertime is when things get very exciting in South Devon: the TQ7 postcode in particular is renowned among installers of solar pv as one of the sunniest places in the UK, and in most years between June and September, every day is beach day. For those seeking more cerebral pleasures, the great Elizabethan maritime city of Plymouth, and the ancient Roman walled city of Exeter provide contrasting attractions: each has its complement of historic sites, stately homes, grand gardens and museums to visit. They also offer excellent shopping, elegant dining, a range of nightlife and award winning theatre at the Theatre Royal and the Northcott respectively.
The Kingsbridge / Cotmore area
Many miles of safe, award-winning beaches offer swimming, rockpooling, and sunbathing opportunities, while watersports - particularly surfing, windsurfing, sailing, waterskiing and parasailing - are popular and widely available. There are facilities for golf, sailing, horseriding, tennis, and river- and sea fishing all within 30 minutes' drive of the property.
Walkers and their dogs will appreciate the attractions of miles of quiet lanes, footpaths, bridleways, and the renowned South Devon Coast Path, while stargazers will glory in the complete absence of artificial light, which makes the Milky Way regularly visible with the naked eye. The area is hugely popular with birdwatchers: Start Point is on a major migration route, Slapton Ley is an overwintering spot for rare overseas visitors, and the Cirl Bunting can be spotted at one or two favoured locations.
South Devon is at the cutting edge of the Good Food revolution in the UK and there are superb eateries to be found in every town and village, with pub fare that would put many restaurants to shame. Fish and seafood are a speciality in the many fishing villages along the coast, and there are a number of establishments where you can pick your choice from the slab or tank and have it prepared, cooked and served to your table while you wait.
