You’ll feel your spirits lift here with a double height kitchen to cook in, an upstairs living room with gorgeous views over rolling hills and a wood-burner for rainy days – lovely to watch a film or read a book in here while the weather does its worst at the windows.
There are maps and guidebooks to help you plan walks and you’re near to sweet little Widecombe in the Moor. So pack a picnic and head out for blustery hikes, or get in the car for the coast just half an hour away with sandy and pebble beaches. Hire bikes and cycle (safely) on the Moor, explore Totnes and Ashburton, have a homegrown delicious lunch in the Riverford Field Kitchen or sample a traditional cream tea on the way home.
The river Dart is near for summer swimming, there’s a pub in Holne a mile away and you have a fenced in, hillside garden of your own with a hammock waiting in the shade of a tree and a barbecue for long, light evenings. The star-gazing here is good on cloud-free nights and Fran leaves you a bottle of wine and home baked biscuits.
