The Music Room   1 Bedroom   |   1 Bathroom   |   WiFi |   |   Sleeps 2

A mile from Aveton Gifford, 300 yards down a tree-lined hardcore track (unsuitable for low suspension vehicles) off a lane, three very special places to stay within handsome former farm buildings: an airy converted barn, a barn converted into a gallery overlooking meadows and a remarkable Grade II listed former music room. A large, pretty, enclosed suntrap courtyard with fountain and flowers is shared with the friendly owners. Just outside the courtyard, a lawned walled garden (also enclosed) with camellias, fig and walnut trees, leading to another captivating garden with pond (unfenced) and 6 grassy acres with big wildlife pond (fenced), benches (terrific long views) and big trees to sit under, inviting you to rest, read or just enjoy the silence and let your mind wander (children should be supervised). Heating by biomass boiler using wood from local, sustainable woodland. Spring water. A peaceful, curative oasis, good for ‘taking it easy’.

The Music Room is magnificent: detached, huge and incredibly romantic, once home to concerts and recitals, brilliantly converted. Three steps up into open-plan living/dining/kitchen (46' x 19') with vaulted stucco ceiling, four massive arched windows with stained glass border the length of the room generating light and colour, wood floor (rugs), woodburner, TV/DVD/Blu-ray home cinema projector with surround sound, piano, iPod dock; smart fitted kitchen area (dishwasher, microwave, fridge, electric oven/induction hob, espresso coffee maker); step up to bathroom (suite, 4' bath with shower over). The bedroom is the stage (3 steps up) with 5' four-poster bed, stunningly presented and lit.

No children, except pre-crawling babies. A stunning and extraordinary place to escape to, any time.

The South Hams: southernmost Devon; between the river Dart and river Tamar and south of Dartmoor, lush farmland and wooded river valleys turning to beautiful estuaries, its coast very beautiful and remarkably well preserved – sandy beaches and mighty cliffs between those estuaries, amazingly little sprawling modern ugliness. Inland too, away from main roads, it remains surprisingly peaceful.

Among special coastal places are Dartmouth; sheltered Blackpool Sands; Slapton’s long curve of pebble beach and nature reserve lagoon; the cliffs about Start Point and Prawle Point, Bolt Head and Bolt Tail; East Portlemouth’s beach and Salcombe’s location and views; Thurlestone proving that family seaside places don’t need to be brash; Bigbury’s huge sands and the fun of getting to Burgh Island; waterside, oak-wood-sheltered Noss Mayo/Newton Ferrers; many others, less easy of access, are for you to discover.

Kingsbridge and Totnes, both old, attractive and small, are the towns at the area’s heart; Plymouth – the West Country’s biggest town, with Naval base, ferry port, theatre, cinemas, history, Hoe (great views) and Barbican (where the life is) – is on the area’s edge. Dartington Hall is an arts centre (films, plays, music, dance) with lovely gardens. Pleasure cruisers ply the Kingsbridge estuary and Dart and Tamar rivers.

Aveton Gifford: old village (pub, PO/shop) beside the River Avon where it becomes tidal. Within 5 or 6 miles are several villages (Bigbury, Bantham, Thurlestone) on an excellent and varied stretch of coast: two sand/surf beaches, coves, rock pools, cliffs, golf courses, the Avon estuary (fishing, birds), pretty thatched-cottage village centres. Kingsbridge, 4 miles.

No children, except pre-crawling babies
