Location description from owner

The England region

South Hams

With a strong rural and maritime heritage the South Hams is noted for its quality local food, culture and scenic landscape The South Hams is a region of rural and coastal Devon much of which is designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, stretching as far as the edges of Dartmoor National Park and featuring one of the most beautiful stretches of coastline in the UK which spans between Torbay and Plymouth.

History

The South Hams has a long history stretching back to Anglo Saxon times, when the area was a feudal estate. Since medieval times many of the villages were centred around the production of wool, and the local ports thrived on the export of local products. The strategic position of many coastal towns has meant that the Royal Navy has been a dominant presence throughout the centuries and still plays a major role in the economy and character of the region today.

Things to do

If you love the outdoors, you’ll love The South Hams. It’s a wonderful outdoor environment, with rivers, moor land, coasts and the sea offering visitors a range of activities including canoeing, walking and sailing. Heritage fans will love local attractions such as Totnes Castle and The South Devon Railway and a range of arts and food festivals keeps culture-vultures happy throughout the year. For the nautically inclined the coast has a big tradition of sailing regattas and arts events.

Food and drink

The West Country is one of the most important producers of food and drink in the UK, noted for its quality and traditional methods. Here you’ll be treated to some of the best fine dining using locally made produce. For seafood, towns such as Dartmouth and Salcombe boast award-winning restaurants, while inland gastro pubs serve excellent home cooked fare.

South Hams has many wonderful towns and villages waiting to be explored, below you’ll find a list to help you decided where to start.

Ivybridge

Ivybridge

If you’re looking for something a little more laid back and off the beaten track then the town of Ivybridge gives you a great alternative to the usual seaside holiday destinations. Surrounded by beautiful countryside and moorland, Ivybridge has a magnificent natural setting and a rich heritage of traditional South Devon industries such as milling and cloth making. The town’s name comes from the bridge over the fast flowing River Erme, which powered Ivybridge’s mills.

History

The first recorded reference to Ivybridge was in 1280 as a place to cross the River Erme, and by the 1700s the town was thriving as a coaching station on the Exeter to Plymouth road, with a hotel and other facilities for travellers. The bridge was widened to allow heavier traffic and then in 1819 a new bridge was built.

Things to do

The original Ivy Bridge – the medieval packhorse bridge – still stands and is well worth a visit. You can also follow in the footsteps of famous artists including Turner, who was inspired to immortalise the bridge on canvas. As a gateway to Dartmoor National Park, there are plenty of trails leading you out of Ivybridge and into the surrounding countryside. Once you’ve had enough of exploring, the town centre has some characterful pubs to relax in, and small independent retailers selling quality local produce and arts and crafts.

Food and drink

If supporting local businesses and sustainable farming is important to you, you’ll fit right in here. All the pubs in Ivybridge offer speciality ales from local producers and fresh local produce is promoted extensively both in the restaurants and retail outlets.

Something a little different

For the truly intrepid, Ivybridge is the starting point of the Two Moors Way - a long distance walking route to Lynmouth on the North Coast of Exmoor. The route goes across Dartmoor and Exmoor linking the two National Parks, and much of the 102-mile route is way marked with information boards on places of interest along the way – ideal if you’re looking for a week’s walking holiday.

“Could be Fabulous!”

Reviewed 20 Sep 2016

This property is in a very quiet peaceful location with parking. There are lots of positive things to say but unfortunately a lot of negatives. The downstairs TV/Kitchen and Dining area is really good. Very nice space and good quality fittings. 2 nice comfortable leather sofas, TV with NetFlix, good kitchen and nice dining table and chairs. Small downstairs toilet with snall sink. The only bathroom is upstairs and was really disappointing. The only good thing to say about it was the water pressure was good and there was plenty of hot water. Could not believe there was no toilet in the bathroom. This room not good as where the sink is the ceiling slopes so unable to stand up straight. No plug for the sink and when you come out you are straight onto the stairs. Would not recomnend for people with mobility problems or children. The double bedroom was a really nice room with a beautiful chandelier and nice bedding and curtains. Unfortunately it was let down by cheap furniture - chest of drawers was had horrible drawers that stuck. There was no bin in the bedroom so I moved the bathroom bin into the bedroom as I spent as little time as possible in the bathroom. There are some really nice light fittings and pictures in the cottage. I think this could be a fabulous property if it was given some more attention. It was clean but was let down by the stair carpet, bathroom, battered paintwork outside of the living area. If the rest of the cottage matched the living area it would be great. Apart from this area I felt the rest needed a little TLC. I do not want to put people off staying here but just wanted to point out the negatives as well as the positives. Great in some areas but well worn in others. Great for parking but don't think anyone would be inspired to sit at the table and chairs or use the BBQ in the area provided. There are Alpacas in the field next to the main house which are really lovely to see.
