Pip Farm

Newton Abbot, Devon

An incredibly stylish farmhouse deep in rural South Devon. Open fires, books, games, large living spaces and wonderful outdoor party area


11 beds


7 bedrooms


Sleeps 16


This traditional Devon longhouse and nearby barn have been beautifully restored and modernised to create a harmonious unfussy place for a relaxed break. There’s lots of space inside and out to just hang out or hide away, depending on your mood. 

The big sociable kitchen is open-plan and easy – ideal for cooking for a crowd. Either stock up in Totnes or Ashburton before you get here or ask owner Sanna for her list of local caterers if you want all the hard work done for you. On warm days spill out to the covered outdoor dining/lounging area for fun al fresco feasts – a marvellous space that can seat up to 20. Your nearest neighbour is a sheep farmer with fresh lamb for sale.

The 11 acres include a veg garden and orchard for you to raid. Choose a book and retreat to one of the many sofas and hammocks to read or have a siesta. Rain or shine – you’ll be tempted not to leave this place at all.

The neighbourhood

This is a great base for exploring Dartmoor, whose borders are just five miles west. A two-mile drive gets you to Broadhempston, with two pubs serving good food. If you crave delicious organic produce fresh from the farm, head for the Riverford Field Kitchen, 15 minutes by car. For the morning after the night before, free-spirited Totnes and its 40+ independent coffee shops are 20 minutes away.

Local points of interest from Sanna Garton

  • Pip Farm is in beautiful countryside situated between the wilds of Dartmoor and the dramatic South Devon coastline, while having great access to the antiques hub of Ashburton and the progressive town of Totnes which is a hotspot of alternative therapies.
  • The owner is an extremely keen cook, so the kitchen has absolutely everything you need to make your own banquet, or bring in a caterer to make your holiday truly resplendent. Not to mention the cooking shack with a charcoal Big Green Egg and a wood grill.
  • There's a public footpath going through the property, giving access to some great walks in the area, including woodland and 3 pub walks. For longer hikes, head over to Dartmoor for which we have many maps and books in the house.
  • There's a cinema/games room in the barn, with Sky TV and playstation connected up to a projector and sound system, and a classic-style arcade machine with nearly 2000 games!
  • Pip Farm was originally called Pitt Farm, and noted in the Domesday Book in 1086. We don't know if any of the original house is in place, but at least we do know the barn was converted to accommodation only 2 years ago!
  • Dogs are more than welcome at Pip. The property is down a quiet lane, so with the gate closed it is a safe haven for your pets. We reserve the 4 house bedrooms as doggy-free to plan for any guests with pet allergies.


Sanna Garton

Sanna used to rent rooms on Pip Farm as a B&B, but always felt its true potential lay in something bigger. She’s created a wonderfully relaxed, boho feel here, and the skilful updated with new bathrooms, underfloor heating and WiFi throughout. Sanna knows the area really well and is happy to advise. When she’s not around to greet she’ll e-mail full instructions for getting in.
