Lower Collaton Farm is a traditional old Devon farmhouse, dating back to the Domesday Book, with peaceful views over rolling countryside down the valley of the river Gara. It is only six miles from the sea, Totnes, Dartmouth and Kingsbridge. Dartmoor National Park is only a short drive away, and day trips to Exeter, Plymouth or the Eden Project are easily undertaken.
At the opposite side of the courtyard from the farmhouse is The Byre, converted into a comfortable and spacious two bedroom cottage sleeping four people in two en suite bedrooms (one double, one twin). The twin is a ‘zip and link’ which can be converted to a large double. To take advantage of the beautiful views of the fields and valley, it is an upside down house, with the living area upstairs. There is a child gate at the top of the stairs.
The living and dining area is open plan, with the original ‘scissor’ beams exposed, giving the cottage loads of character. Twelve cows used to be milked here, and the names on their stalls are now on the wall in honour of the previous residents! The main and second bedrooms are downstairs looking out onto the patio. Outside there is a small lawn and a patio area, ideal for a good summer barbeque!
The Byre is a no-smoking cottage and is available from Easter through to the end of September. Linen, towels and heating are included in the rental. No dogs, please, but one is welcome in The Stables.
Prices for a week start at £545, increasing to £895 in peak season.
Lettings are from Saturday to Saturday
