Further details outdoors

The garden field has three brick built BBQs and ample seating for alfresco eating, the children can occupy themselves in the two outdoor play areas with adult sized trampoline with safety net, many ball sports, swings and slides.

Guests are free to roam over the land and through the woods, taking in the abundance of wildlife - buzzards, herons, mallards and the odd cormorant are daily visitors. For dusk walkers, sightings of the resident badgers, foxes and rabbits are not uncommon.

A superb base for exploring Torbay and the South Hams. Luxury 4 STAR accommodation at its best, a very well equipped kitchen, very comfortable and lovely interior with those well thought out touches that make all the difference. Home from home!

The property also boasts six quality coarse fishing lakes for guests to fish at their leisure.

Further details

A second bedroom (a double) can be opened up to create a two bedroom cottage, thus sleeping four comfortably.

The West Country region

South Devon is a popular holiday destination, boasting some of the highest temperatures during the summer months in England. Paignton is part of an area encompassing Torquay and Brixham - a beautiful unspoilt fishing harbour town, commonly known as the English Rivera. Oldway Mansion in the heart of Paignton was once the home of the Singer family, founders of the famous Sewing Machine. Agatha Christie was born and bred in Torquay, The Princess Theatre on the sea front often shows productions written by this legend.

Three miles from Oaktree is the lovely town of Totnes which has a fabulous market every Friday in the heart of the town - plenty of local produce, a lot of organic, very orginal foods and some marvellous interesting artefacts! During the summer months, Elizabethan dress is almost compulsory with the locals going about their everyday business on a Tuesday. The town is definitely worth a visit - plenty of great eating places and some great Tea rooms with irresistible home made cakes!

The English Riviera boasts 22 miles of coastal paths and countless sandy beaches, the nearest is Goodrington Sands but Blackpool Sands is definitely worth a visit - you may have to pay to park in the car park but once it's full no one else is allowed onto this golden beach, therefore never crowded and just fabulous really clean facilities.

During the months of June, July and August there are countless fetes, fairs, festivals, carnivals - literally something happening every week.

Paignton

Oaktree is probably in one of the best locations for exploring South Devon. Few places in the world can genuinely offer you such a wide range of ways to spend your time. Relaxing on the beach, afternoons browsing through designer shops or visiting fascinating museums.

If you have the energy, there is a vast selection of sporting activities to choose from, both on the water and off the water, plus hundreds of place to visit within easy reach and a diary packed with events and festivals. For those looking to spread their wings there are historic towns, expansive morrs, picture-postcard villages and heritage-rich cities close by, just waiting to be discovered.

"Great country break destination"

Spent a great New Years' Eve country break with my friends. The accommodation and conditions are superb for a few days away from the Big Smoke. Just a quick ride to the beach and a spa/leisure centre is just a few minutes away. Also, a magnificent view over the Dartmoor National Park! Would definitely recommend it!

Thanks very much for taking the time to send a review, we really appreciate it and wish you all the best for the new year.
