DOG FRIENDLY & RURAL

Beautiful Victorian Farmhouse and Converted Barn in a secluded valley in the heart of the stunning South Hams, Devon. A great property for big family holidays and getting away with friends, but with room to breathe!

Traditional / mixed furnishings sit alongside contemporary facilities to make for a comfortable and luxurious stay. The Games Room and hot tub makes for a great hang out too.

Each property has its own private gardens as well as 70 acres of land to explore.

The space
THE GREAT OUTDOORS
As well as walks closer to Fletchers the South Devon Coast offers miles of glorious walking with superb views and plenty to see. To the north and only 10 minutes by car is the Dartmoor National Park with 365 square miles of moor, streams, rivers and forest. High granite tors, prehistoric remains and enchanting hamlets and villages make Dartmoor a very special place.

FOR CHILDREN
Within 20 minutes drive are the Woodlands Adventure park, the Pennywell Farm and adventure park, the River Dart adventure park and numerous smaller attractions for sunny and not so sunny days.

GARDENS
There are half a dozen National Trust properties and gardens within easy reach of Fletchers and a day trip away are the RHS gardens at Rosemoor, the world famous Eden Project and the Lost gardens of Heligan. During the summer months there are many private gardens open as part of the National Gardens Scheme. Look for the yellow signs.

TOWNS
Totnes is the nearest town to Fletchers, famous for it's eclectic and alternative lifestyle but with a great range of independent shops and a refreshing lack of chain stores. Its Norman castle, medieval Guildhall and many Elizabethan buildings stretch down to the River Dart. Lively and different Totnes has a twice weekly market and a great selection of bars, cafes and pubs with regular live music. Nearby at Dartington is the famous hall, gardens and arts centre as well as the Cider Press craft and shopping centre.

Dartmouth at the mouth of the River Dart is the place for boats large and small with a good range of shops, pubs and restaurants. The castle, museum and the famous Britannia Royal Naval College are all worth a visit.

Kingsbridge at the head of its estuary is a good stopping off point on the way to the beaches of the south and west coast of the South Hams while Salcombe is a mecca for sailors. To the north the Dartmoor gateway towns of South Brent, Buckfastleigh (with its famous abbey) and Ashburton are worth a visit before climbing up to the moor itself. The Torbay towns of Torquay, Paignton and Brixham offer everything from shopping and sailing to the bucket and spade beach delights of Paignton and the fishing port of Brixham.

For city life Exeter and Plymouth are both 40 minutes by car.

SPORT
Sailing and Watersports are to the fore in the South Hams with facilities for boat hire and launching at Totnes, Dittisham, Dartmouth, Salcombe and Torbay. Canoeing, kayaking, diving and sea and coarse fishing are all readily available. There are 6 Golf courses within easy reach with tennis at Totnes and Blackawton, horseriding at Broadhempston and on Dartmoor, rock climbing at Buckfastleigh and on Dartmoor, surfing at Bigbury, horse racing at Newton Abbot and Exeter, football at Exeter, Plymouth and Torquay and Rugby at Exeter. Swimming pools are in Totnes, Dartmouth, Kingsbridge and Torquay. Also swimming in the sea of course! Boat trips varying from 12 seater canoe adventures to large pleasure boats and nature watching or fishing trips start from many centres in the area. Steam trains run from Totnes and Kingswear.

Guest access
Guests are able to walk through the nearby fields and streams as it's owned by Fletchers Combe (70 acres). However, please bear in mind that we rear livestock so make sure to close gates behind you and don't harm the animals!

Other things to note
Dog friendly neighbourhood with a pond to swim and fields to run around.
