Tucked away on the South Devon coast, our six cottages are dotted around our organic dairy farm and yet are only a short walk from the beautiful coast path and many secluded coves and beaches. The wilderness of Dartmoor is only a short drive away whilst the wonderful Erme estuary and Mothecombe beach, with over 130 acres of sand at low tide, is just a couple of miles away.
