only a mile from the centre of Kingsbridge and its waterfront, yet absolutely in country, two cottages cleverly converted from former barns, sharing exclusive use of an indoor heated swimming pool (29' x 11' x 4' deep, open 7am to 8pm) and games room (table tennis, pool table). You are welcome to fish (at half price) in three well-stocked coarse fishing lakes (tench,  roach, carp - 25lbs the largest, so far!).

The cottages are quietly tucked behind 'The Hen House', a fitness, health and beauty centre in another converted barn; you are welcome to book in advance a professional massage or beauty therapy or a fitness class (yoga, pilates), and use the excellent gym at reduced rates. Payphone on site. Spring water. These are wonderfully relaxing retreats after a day exploring the beautiful South Hams.

Fixit Cottage is semi-detached with its own enclosed level lawned garden bordered by a stream. Three steps up to enclosed patio (table/chairs, barbecue) partly covered by a verandah, perfect for alfresco meals. Inside, all bright, light and fun. Well-equipped kitchen/dining room (dishwasher, washer-drier, microwave, fridge-freezer); downstairs double (6' bed) or twin bedroom with en suite shower-room (suite). Stairs (stairgate) from kitchen to lovely ceiling-to-apex living room with wood floor (rug), woodburner, TV/DVD, French windows and wrought iron balustrade; off it, a double (6' bed) or twin bedroom with en suite bathroom (suite), French windows and wrought iron balustrade.

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.

Kingsbridge

Kingsbridge: small market town (excellent shops, good pubs, leisure centre with indoor pool) and waterfront (sailing, motor boats) at the head of the many-creeked Kingsbridge estuary (boat trips) leading to the sea at Salcombe. Bantham beach, 4 miles. Tremendous variety of beautiful places and things to see/do within 5 or 6 miles.

"Too, too perfect. A definite must stay."

I have been coming here for years, have got to know the owners and am biased but everything done on Coombe Farm is done to a very high standard. (I've stayed in every accommodation here on differ… More
