About: Winner of the Beautiful Farm Award 2009/2010 for the West and South West region of Britain. Two high-spec holiday cottages, forming part of an architect designed barn conversion on the historic Fowlescombe estate, a 470 acre working organic farm within a beautiful hidden valley in the South Hams of Devon, where wildlife and rare breed animals are a priority. Central for visiting South Devon coast, Dartmoor and enchanting local towns – such as Totnes and Kingsbridge.

Enjoy walks over 470 acres of lovely countryside; enjoy the wildlife – owls, hare, skylarks, buzzards and more; enjoy the peace and tranquillity. The cottages are to the highest standard and perfect for all seasons. The three bedroomed cottage is of conventional layout while the two-bedroomed cottage has the bedrooms downstairs, lounge and kitchen above and you can step outside from both levels.

The Fowlescombe estate is in a hidden valley in the South Hams, Devon. It has steep sided valleys with spring-fed streams running through. High hedges, many trees, ponds and small woodlands make it an idyllic spot to holiday, while providing shelter to the livestock and wildlife. The estate is famous for its historic ruins. The old barn dates back to approximately 1800 and the ruins of the 16th century mansion can still be seen down in the valley.

See bluebells, primroses, wild orchids, hares, foxes, deer, buzzards, barn owls, skylarks etc. according to the season. The whole place helps you gain that inner peace. The friendly farm animals include black Angus cattle, Ruby Red Devon cattle, rare breed primitive black brown sheep and rare breed chickens.

Local places of interest include Mothercombe, with its superb sandy beach, Totnes, Dartmouth and Torquay, offering the marina and many good restaurants and pubs on the quayside. Several sandy beaches can be enjoyed and walking is available along the South Devon Coastal Path, much of which lies on NT land.
