The Experience

The 16th-century farmhouse and stables, arranged around a neat yard, have been kitted out with ground-source underfloor heating and natural slate floors. Bedrooms are in the stables: all are a good size, newly carpeted, spotless with good lighting. Find the chic summerhouse by the lake, replete with wood-burning stove and comfy chairs. Lynda and Charles give you a great local breakfast in the beamed dining room with views through the kitchen to their much loved garden. Originally four acres of boggy wilderness it now thrives. There’s a pond stocked with rudd, visited by mallards and moorhens, and packed with flag irises and lilies. Then a series of steps and terraces (all built by clever Charles), bubbling fountains, timber decks, a waterfall, and a greenhouse. Lynda is the plantswoman and she goes for big plants! Gunnera, bamboo, echiums and a banana plant all zoom heavenward while yuccas, phormiums and agapanthus add to the exotic feel. In a perennial bed there are more traditional plants like roses and stocks. So peaceful, so much wildlife; pick a bench and delight in it all. Sometimes you can hear the sea.

A very smart and comfortable house with a beautiful garden in a quiet and secluded country setting, and yet in easy reach of Dartmouth, Kingsbridge and Salcombe. Lynda was an attentive host, giving useful local advice on places to see and where to dine, and providing a very tasty breakfast. A relaxing and enjoyable three night stay.

Brian & Joyce, Devizes

The perfect escape from busy life, especially garden lovers and an excellent base for exploring nearby beaches and walking the South West coastal path.

Catharine, Sawday's inspector

This is such a lovely place to stay! Our bedroom and bathroom were huge and very quiet. The garden is literally breathtaking and breakfast was good. Added to this, Lynda gave us fantastic advice and suggestions when we asked her about a range of things, including where to eat, where to walk, and which beach to go to in order to sit in the sun and avoid the wind! We loved it.

H, London

Wonderfully luxurious, comfortable and spacious room (4 poster bed, and jacuzzi style bath!). Gracious host, beautiful gardens, and good breakfast.

Local points of interest from Lynda & Charles Rogers

  • The long stretch of Beesands beach, which is dog friendly, is just a mile away, this unspoilt beach is still a traditional fishing spot. Fisherman can be seen bringing in their crab pots onto the beach.
  • Explore the freshwater ley at Beesands with its own hide to watch the abundance of water fowl
  • The stunning scenery from the coastal path can lead you to Start Point where the lighthouse sits on the peninsula of this magnificent unspoilt bay (guided tours available).
  • Britannia@theBeach, known affectionately as 'The Shack' serves fantastic food in an informal setting.
  • Beesands can boast a worthy pub, the Cricket Inn, who also serve excellent food.
