Looking for a peaceful self catering holiday cottage on a South Devon farm, nestling in a secluded valley with beautiful views over green and rolling hills?
4 miles to historic Dartmouth, with the spectacular River Dart, the historic towns of Totnes, Kingsbridge and Salcombe, all on your doorstep?
Dartmoor National Park, one of England's last great wildernesses, a short drive
Then Lower Tideford Farm with its 5 holiday cottages converted from traditional stone barns set round a courtyard, may be just what you are looking for.
Lower Tideford Farm used to be a dairy farm with contented cows grazing on 170 acres of lush Devon pasture land. The cottages were the original stone-built barns for the farm and as you can see from the picture on the right, they are set down a long private drive away from the road.
The Dartmouth cottage was the original milking parlour and the kitchen was used for cooling and storing milk. The upper storey of the Salcombe cottage was a threshing barn, some of the machinery, in particular the old wheels, are still there. These can be seen in the kitchen. They were powered from outside by a traction engine.
