LOCATION The barn is the larger one of a pair in the grounds of Higher Ash Farm just two miles from the famous naval town of Dartmouth. The barns (and adjacent owner's farmhouse) sit within 50 acres of delightful grounds including extensive areas of lawned garden, well-stocked orchard and working farmland (with cows, sheep and chickens) - N.B. There is one small pond within the grounds and we recommend that your children should be supervised. The farm produces a wide range of fruit and vegetables for sale to guests when in season, and fresh eggs are available most of the year! The village of Stoke Fleming (with pub and shop/Post office) is 30 minutes walk away, with Blackpool Sands beach just a 10 minute drive along the coast road.
VIEWS Lovely views from most rooms across the farmhouse garden, orchard and country fields beyond.
