L61 - Hawthorn Barn
Cottage | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
1¾ miles west of East Allington along a no through road, on an organic 300 acre sheep/beef farm which you are welcome to wander, four excellent, well thought through cottages converted from handsome Victorian barns, with ample parking: two 'upside-down' semi-detached cottages (L65 and L66) and, across a courtyard, two more semi-detached cottages (L60 and L61). There is an open-ended games barn (table tennis, table football, swings, trampoline). Foot and bridlepaths lead from the farm to the beautiful wooded river Avon valley, so excellent walking country and a central location for coast and Dartmoor.
Hawthorn Barn (arrow 1) has its own enclosed patio area with table/chairs and 3 steps up to the front door. Living room with woodburner, modern flooring (rugs), TV/DVD; 2 steps down to large, birch fitted kitchen/dining room (dishwasher, washing machine, tumble drier, microwave, fridge-freezer) with glazed doors to small, sunny paved area with bench looking across fields. At this level, a twin bedroom with en suite shower-room (suite). Stairs (stairgate) down to two more bedrooms – a double (5' bed) with en suite shower-room (suite), and a twin; bathroom (suite plus bath-shower). Countryside views. These two cottages (L61 and L60) are attached to each other and at the back look on to a courtyard and the other two semi-detached cottages (L65 and L66).

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.
East Allington: little South Hams village (good food pub, church), 3½ miles from Kingsbridge, and about 8 from the good sandy beaches at Thurlestone or Bantham; Dartmouth (town), 6 miles. Golf. Family leisure park (animals, children's activities), 4 miles.
