This 70-acre Dorset Sheep farm is set in the glorious countryside of South Hams a uniquely lovely region boasting the mildest year-round climate in Britain.

Superb sandy beaches at Mothecombe and Bigbury-on-Sea and a variety of water sports at the picturesque twin villages of Newton Ferrers and Noss Mayo are all within about half an hour’s drive. The delightful little Georgian town of Modbury with its specialist and antique shops and splendid inns is under 5 miles whilst nearby is Ivybridge known as the southern gateway to Dartmoor offers excellent sports facilities an indoor pool and a renowned garden centre. Dartmoor National Park lies within easy reach – wild ponies the Dartmoor Wildlife Park Widecombe in the Moor and Buckfastleigh Abbey are just some of its attractions.
