The Experience

This luxurious timber barn, an ex-recording studio for Led Zeppelin, is surrounded by farmhouses, cottages and ponies, with views to East Portlemouth and beyond. As for the owners, who also run a B&B and a treehouse on site, they simply couldn’t be nicer.

Walk down the lane to the Crab Shed for lobster and into Salcombe for blustery beachside walks, bobbing boats and boutiques, great fish and chips and ice cream. It’s pure English seaside holiday stuff.

With books, games, highchairs, dogs, ponies and hens, it’s well geared up for families – take The Recording Studio too and bring everybody, together they sleep, and seat, 18. Large windows flood rooms with light, the kitchen is in galley style, and French doors open to a private patio, so let the children tear about safely while you have a sundowner.

Reviews

We hired the Stables together with the recording studio for a hen weekend in July which worked really well as we had a big group. The farm is so picturesque, the setting is stunning. Our hosts were very welcoming and friendly - they live on site but it is very private and we were left to our own devises. The property is beautifully decorated and very well cared for. the beds were clean and comfortable and the kitchen was well stocked with everything we might need. The location is ideal - a short walk into gorgeous Salcombe. I would have no hesitation in recommending for any groups

Location

The neighbourhood

The AONB setting is semi-remote, with valley views. Salcombe, the third largest inland harbour in the world, is a 25-minute walk down pretty lanes, while the Crab Shed restaurant is even closer. Boats, bars and boutiques abound, as do water sports, sandy beaches and tiny coves: seek out Gara Rock.

Introducing

Freya Thompson

It’s a family affair at Salcombe Farm – Felicity and Charles bought it years ago, running B&B and breeding Dartmoor ponies, and now Freya and Freddie have taken over, managing the self-catering barn and treehouse and planning future projects. Freya also manages Dorset House in town – she’s lived in Salcombe most of her life and has a wealth of knowledge about the area.
