The Experience

Deep in the South Hams is a working organic dairy farm with a lovely house for an outdoorsy family. The coastal path is on the doorstep and the sandy beach a short amble. There is another holiday cottage on the farm but you’re well spread out so you’ll feel nicely private. The Lodge has a roomy open-plan living and dining space with a wood-burner, comfy beds and all the basics for cooking left for you – you can order a hamper full of local and organic produce too. Outside is your own private space for al fresco suppers; children will seek out the play area, and all are welcome to come and see the cows being milked. There’s heaps to do nearby or simply stay put and watch the sun set, glass of wine in hand.

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Dawn Farrow

  • All our cottages are just a couple of fields away from the stunning South West Coast and a short walk from nearby coves and beaches - fantastic for explorers of all ages!
  • The closest villages are Newton Ferrers & Noss Mayo. These villages are about two miles away, nestled on each side of the River Yealm where the boats float lazily on the water...
  • Bigbury-on-Sea is a few miles away, but with a cafe open all year round and seasonal life guards. Bigbury also has an amazing sea tractor to take you to Burgh Island when it is cut off by the tide!
  • Carswell Farm is actually made up of three farms - Carswell, Lambside and Caulston. It stretches for nearly 3 miles along the coast and the mild climate means that our cows enjoy fresh sea air and lush green grass all year round!
  • Explore the nearby picturesque towns of Kingsbridge, Dartmouth and Salcombe, visit the historic maritime port of Plymouth to see where the Mayflower set sail to America or enjoy a visit to the famous National Marine Aquarium.
  • The beautiful estuary of the River Erme and Mothecombe beach are only a couple of miles from here. With 130 acres of sand at low tide, many well known productions - like 'Sense and Sensibility' and 'Hornblower' have been filmed in this stunning location.
