Old Coombe, Dittisham, Dartmouth,
England, United Kingdom
Unusual, quirky and fun. Loyal fans return year after year for Fingals' laid-back charm. In a rolling green valley half a mile from the river Dart, all you need is here: the hotel has snooker, grass tennis, croquet and a pool. You can self-cater in the oak-framed barn where your kitchen is simple, or eat convivially in the atmospheric restaurant. Reached from an outside stair, your huge private space has massive beams and floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the gardens. Polished oak floors with faded oriental rugs, well-snuggled-in sofas, a rocking horse, grand piano and books and games will suit families and friends. The main bedroom, with pine bed and Indian throw, sloping roof and skylight windows, hides behind a sliding Japanese screen; the second bedroom is much smaller; the bathroom has a green-footed roll top tub. Children can knock a ball about, swim, make friends, as you order your favourite tipple and loll on a steamer chair. Golfers can golf (ask Richard about discount at the local club), and everyone can head off to the beach, the river, the pub... the area is a treat to discover.
