Lower Widdicombe Farm   7 Bedrooms   |   6 Bathrooms   |   WiFi | Games Room | Beach 800m |   |   Sleeps 14

Lower Widdicombe Farm is a working farm at the end of ½ mile of private drive, surrounded by its own 280 acres of verdant farmland. It’s a mile inland from the sea, between the coastal villages of Torcross and Beesands (2 road miles from each). Footpaths crisscross the land, leading to the Coast Path and the shingle beach at Beesands (½ mile).

The drive sweeps down past old farm buildings to a large courtyard, open garage and this 19th cent. former farmhouse. The house, with sea glimpses from all front-facing windows, has been brought bang-up-to-date with careful and thoughtful renovation and furnished with flair to create a unique, stylish and spacious home.

To the front of the house, a south-facing terrace (picnic tables) with seaward views over rolling farmland, perfect for sundowners. Steps lead to a rough sloping lawn beyond for running free and ball kicking.

Front door to slate-floored hall. Cosy, peaceful living room (woodburner) with seating for 8 and TV/DVD. At the heart of the house, generous farmhouse kitchen/dining room with French windows to the terrace: to one end, a bespoke oak table/benches, woodburner and snuggle chairs and, at the other, a beautiful hand-built kitchen (dishwasher, microwave, electric range oven/induction hob, drinks fridge, double sink).

Behind the kitchen, a large, bright boot room (fridge-freezer, original well) with stable doors and original slate floor, the place to ditch walking boots, coats and soggy dogs. Up 14 stone steps, large games room (table tennis, table football, TV/DVD) with sofas.

Utility room (washing machine, tumble drier); cloakroom (loo). Downstairs smart double bedroom (5’ bed) with en suite shower-room (suite).

Stairs up to first-floor and five more bedrooms (Vispring beds) and four bath or shower-rooms:

- Double (5’ bed) with en suite shower-room (suite) and limited clothes-hanging space
- Double (5' bed) with window seat and en suite shower-room (suite)
- Twin with window seats (limited clothes-hanging space)
- Twin with window seats (limited clothes-hanging space)
- Room with two singles and window seat

Down 3 steps, smart shower-room (suite) and, at the other end of the landing, beautiful bathroom (suite with separate shower).

Second flight of steep stairs (rope rail) down to the kitchen/dining room.

From the landing, more stairs up to a loft double bedroom (5’ bed) under the eaves with Velux windows and views, plus neatly fitted shower-room (suite).

Dogs permitted in kitchen and boot room only. Spring water. A fabulous house in a great spot for exploring the beautiful South Hams coast and kicking back with your nearest and dearest or for get-togethers and celebrations at any time of year.

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.

Beesands: tiny village (good pub, fish restaurant) beside the beach (coarse sand/pebbles) and on the Coast Path, looking straight out to sea and across Start Bay to Start Point and its lighthouse. Locally caught fish for sale; excellent farm shop at Stokenham, 2 miles. Kingsbridge and East Portlemouth (foot ferry to Salcombe), 6 miles. A remarkably unspoilt farming area with beautiful, little built-on, coast.
