Description from owner


The Barn at Cotmore Farm is a newly built, reverse-level conversion situated in a small farm courtyard surrounded by 13 acres of pasture, orchards, woodland and gardens. It boasts stunning, airy interiors to the highest specifications: heated slate floors downstairs and solid oak boards upstairs, luxury bathrooms, ultramodern Scandinavian woodburner, original contemporary art on the walls, comfortable leather sofas, flatscreen HD TV with DVD/CD player and free wifi. Outside there's a private terrace garden with barbecue, an orchard with giant trampoline, space for ball games, and horses, chickens, lambs, and rare-breed piglets to visit in their homes. In short, The Barn at Cotmore Farm provides all the comforts of home in an idyllic countryside setting.

The front door opens to an elegant hallway. On the left, a large bookcase filled with paperback and hardback fiction, reference books and local history, and an excellent selection of children's picture books, will tempt you to browse and borrow. To the right, the master bedroom with en-suite is furnished with a kingsize bed. Next door a private laundry room has washing, drying and ironing facilities. The spacious second bedroom offers twin beds that cleverly convert to a luxurious super-kingsize. A third bed can be made available in this room, giving multiple configuration options, and a cot is available if required at no extra charge.

A glass balustraded staircase leads to the first floor, a lovely, light-filled space, with high ceilings, exposed beams and roof lights, offering expansive, open-plan living. At one end of this 35-foot-long room is a fully equipped kitchen and dining area, with views to the garden and farm courtyard. At the other, two comfortable leather sofas, a widescreen satellite TV, and a high-end Scandinavian woodburner offer a congenial space to relax of an evening. 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, badminton or croquet.

Horses, cats, chickens, Shetland sheep, and rare breed piglets provide feeding opportunities for animal-loving children (and adults!), while birdwatchers will delight in the abundance of visitors to our many tables and feeders – a visiting ornithologist recently identified over 50 species in and around the farm. And since we're barely a mile from the South West Coast Path, walkers (and their dogs) will not want for new routes to explore.

The Barn is one of three imaginatively converted farm buildings at Cotmore Farm. The others are Rose Cottage, a former stable block offering luxurious single-storey accommodation for two, and Appletree Cottage, which accommodates 4/5 in two bedrooms, with a fabulous open-plan living space above, opening onto a private terrace carved out of a green Devon bank.

Getting around

Our nearest railway station is Totnes, some 40 minutes' drive away. It is on the main line between London and Penzance, which means hourly trains in both directions. The journey time to London Paddington is approximately 3 hours. Public buses run from Totnes station to Kingsbridge and Dartmouth, our nearest towns, and the Route 3 bus, which runs from Dartmouth to Kingsbridge and then on to Plymouth, stops in the village of Chillington, a mile from the farm. Most visitors come to Cotmore by car; we are approximately 50 minutes south east of Plymouth and some 70 minutes south west of Exeter. Once arrived, walking and cycling are popular ways to get around.

Interaction with guest

We like to welcome guests personally on arrival, show them in, and give a brief introduction to the farm and the area. After that, guests are left to their own devices, but we are never far away when needed, and can be found either in the Farmhouse, or about the place, tending to the livestock and carrying our our duties. We are always happy to recommend a walk to suit your level of adventurousness, a beach appropriate to the prevailing tide or wind direction, or a place to eat commensurate with your appetite and wallet!

Very Good

“We didnt want to leave”

Reviewed 8 Mar 2018

We booked a week’s holiday and we had a wonderful time. Lots of dog walking and fresh air which allowed us to completely unwind. It was the first time we had taken our well behaved dog away with us and we were a little apprehensive about it but Piers and Sue made us feel very welcome. The accommodation was first rate with comfy beds, splendid bathrooms and a well equipped kitchen. There is so much to do and see in the area it’s a great place to visit. We appreciated the welcome basket of bread, eggs and apple juice etc it was lovely start to our holiday. We took the opportunity to buy some of Piers award winning sausages and bacon and they were delicious. After spending several years having holidays abroad I can honestly say this was one of our most favourite holidays and we will go back. Thank you for your hospitality Piers and Sue.

We stayed in the Barn at Cotmore Farm for two weeks in July 2017, as a family of 4 including a 13 11 year old. You know this place is good when you open the guest book and find that one guest has been four times! The accommodation was excellent, fitted out to a very good standard and very well cleaned. The farm itself is lovely, accessible without being noisy or dirty, and as other views have said, great fun for the kids who can roam the place at will. The owners live nearby, and are very happy to help with any queries or requests but equally are not intrusive. The area is lovely, with a wonderful coastline to explore (a short drive) as well as Salcombe and Dartmouth too, and some fantastic places to eat too (our favourites - great pub food at Cricket Inn in Beesands, tapas at the Old Bakery in Kinsbridge, Indian at the Maha Bharat and pizza out the box at Stokely Farm). We would be happy to return in the future.

“A great place to stay”

Reviewed 3 Jun 2017

We stayed here on the May Day Bank holiday weekend, my parents stayed in Appletree Cottage with my brother and my families were metres away in The Barn. We had high expectations having booked based on all the positive reviews - happy to say our expectations were met. The farm setting and accommodation are fantastic, with the accommodation well laid out and to a high standard - we've previously stayed at 'At the Beach' in Torcross which is also great, but we preferred Cotmore Farm. Piers and Sue are very accommodating hosts, happy to give you as much or as little of their time as you prefer. The eggs from the farm are the best we've ever tasted and the sunshine on Saturday gave us the opportunity to BBQ some of the farm sausages which were delicious. The farm itself is well maintained, very clean and not a 'smelly farm'. The location is great, it's remote but we enjoyed a walk from the farm to Beesands for lunch at Britannia at the Beach. The Stokeley farm shop is just a short drive away and well stocked. We also had a fantastic Sunday lunch at the Thurlestone hotel.

“Great location and high quality accomodation”

Reviewed 1 May 2017

We had an excellent long weekend in the barn, well equipped and furnished with nice touches like the quality welcome pack. Beautiful coastline where we enjoyed long walks, set up for the day with bacon and eggs from the farm. Very cosy with the wood burning stove after dinner of pork steaks, again from the farm. The farm itself is tucked away down the high-hedged lanes of South Devon and a great location for a get-away-from-it-all break or holiday. Already thinking of doing it all over again next year!

“Peaceful Holiday Location”

Reviewed 9 Jan 2017

We had a great four night break over the New Year in this lovely converted barn. Piers was extremely helpful with any questions we had regarding the property and the local area - especially his recommendations for great restaurants. The barn was very well presented with lots of space for my two teenage daughters and my husband and I.

“The perfect Christmas ❤”

Reviewed 5 Jan 2017

Piers and Sue were wonderful hosts. We spent Christmas in the barn conversion, with six of us sat comfortably around the table for our feast with plenty of elbow room. The photo's are great, but don't do it complete justice. It's bigger than I had imagined; the space is beautifully considered and you don't feel like your on top of each other. We had our 18 month old with us too, who had just started walking and I felt very safe her roaming the house and exploring its nooks and crannies. She loved feeding the pigs and collecting the eggs from the chickens.. a real delight. The meat we bought from Piers was incredible, the whole family said they were the best sausages we'd ever eaten.. well done Piers! I would absolutely recommend this place. It's stone throw to the beach and close to pubs and beauty. As the title says.. it was our perfect Christmas!

“Great holiday in a superb location”

Reviewed 31 Jul 2016

Fantastic week in a lovely barn conversion which was spacious and comfortable. The cottage was quiet and very private even though there were 2 other cottages on site. Super spot with lots of coastal walks nearby and within easy reach of Salcombe and Dartmouth which are well worth a visit. Piers was very friendly but not intrusive and left us to enjoy our holiday. Loved this area and hope to be back!

“Super barn, high spec, ideal for relaxing and getting away from it all.”

Reviewed 9 Jul 2016

Great place, we enjoyed our stay at the barn, it had a very calm feel, which made us slow down and enjoy the quiet. Lovely coastal walks a couple of miles away, plenty of good pubs also. Would be happy to recommend it.

“Fabulous log burner. Warm welcome.”

Reviewed 12 Jan 2016

Travelled as a family with a 5 year old, pre-teen and teenager. Had a lovely stay. Piers gave us a warm welcome. Cottage contained everything we needed. Log burner was fantastic. Enjoyed lots of walks on the coastal paths. Our 5 year old enjoyed collecting eggs from the chickens. Would highly recommend.

“Amazing, child friendly, farm location with great accommodation”

Reviewed 25 Jan 2014

We greatly enjoyed staying at Cotmore Farm with our 3 girls (7,10,12). They loved living on the farm for the week, helping out with the animals and collecting eggs! The owners are on site, but not intrusive in any way, instead very friendly with the children and helpful for advice and info. The accommodation was fantastic. As the cook of the house, I loved the kitchen and open plan living space. Out top tip would be the children's 'pony days' at a local equestrian centre - our girls said that was the highlight of the week. And we enjoyed a day off and lunch in salcombe! Would highly recommend and hope to return.
