Approached along a private drive and surrounded by 28 acres of farmland and woodland, Coombe Farmhouse lies in a tranquil valley, close to the picturesque market town of Modbury, the sandy beaches at Bigbury-on-Sea, Mothecombe, Bantham and Thurlestone, and the attractions of Dartmoor. A property of grand design, it combines the charm of historic stone barns with contemporary interior design and modern facilities. It has a south-facing aspect, with a sunny and sheltered courtyard overlooking a small stream in the valley below. Converted to a very high specification, Coombe Farmhouse offers spacious and comfortable accommodation to suit all purposes. With its own indoor heated swimming pool, it is ideal for a special family gathering or for groups of friends wishing to be together but still enjoying a degree of privacy. Close to the attractions of the south coast and Dartmoor, this is a perfect summer holiday location and is also ideal for winter breaks, with open fires and cosy accommodation. The location is truly rural, and offers complete peace and serenity. Modbury is a delightful town in the South Hams in Devon, surrounded by rolling hills, wooded glades and winding country lanes, where visitors will find a cluster of independent shops, cafes and locally-produced Devon food and drink. Local farms sell fresh, local produce and there is a local vineyard and a chocolate maker as well. There are lovely sandy beaches at Bigbury-on-Sea, just 3 miles to the south. Other good beaches include Mothecombe, Bantham, Thurlestone and Challaborough, all popular with families and offering water sports in summer. Horse riding is available locally and there are two good golf clubs nearby. There is excellent fly fishing and coarse fishing available in the area. Nearby Salcombe, Dartmouth and Newton Ferrers offer wonderful sheltered sailing. The A38 is just 10 minutes away, making travel to other areas easy. The road leads to the Tamar Bridge into Cornwall. The edge of Dartmoor - awesome, beautiful and mysterious - is only 5 miles to the north and has dramatic, open spaces; it always makes a popular tourist destination. There is much to do and see in this area, with something to suit family members of all ages. Alternatively, guests will be pleased to simply just stay put at Coombe Farmhouse and enjoy a totally relaxing holiday spending quality time together as a family. The closest local garage and shop is at California Cross, about 2 miles. Excellent pubs in the area, notably in Ugborough. Accommodation is provided in three barns - Main Barn: Hallway. Laundry room.
