Set within the grounds of a listed 17th century manor house on a private estate in Devon, Barberry Brook is a beautiful bright house with original features, contemporary comforts and high eco credentials. It’s a wonderful country retreat with an indoor pool, gym and tennis court all on site.
Sitting in a south-facing position on a mill stream wall, with the old farm courtyard on one side and a babbling brook on the other, Barberry Brook is the perfect place to enjoy beautiful natural surroundings, long walks and a healthy dose of R&R. Inside there are modern amenities and home comforts galore, outside you can listen to the soothing trickle of the stream and the cooing of doves, and nearby there are bucolic villages, picturesque hiking and biking trails, splendid National Trust properties and secluded South Devon beaches. Can you imagine anything more restorative?
Fingals is for lovers of peace and quiet in surroundings which are both romantic and full of character. You can walk to the three neighbouring villages from your door, along green lanes and across fields. Bikes are available to borrow on site. Fingals is a mile away from Dittisham in Devon, a beautiful village sited on the edge of the river Dart. Greenway Quay, which is directly opposite Dittisham, is right by Agatha Christie’s summerhouse and gardens. The National Trust have finished restoring her house and it is now open to the public. Coleton Fishacre is a spectacular house and garden designed by Milne (a disciple of Lutyens) in 1925 for Rupert and Lady Dorothy D'Oyly Carte (of Gilbert and Sullivan fame). The house reflects the Arts and Crafts tradition yet has refreshingly modern interiors. Fingals is within easy reach of Dartmouth, Totnes, Salcombe and Dartmoor. Fingals is ideal for sailing holidays or as a base for exploring the South Devon coast - there are beautiful secluded beaches (we will share our favourite, secret coves with you) and the South West Coast Path offers stunning views. Dartmoor is only a short drive away and is superb for hiking and wild pony spotting.
There is a regular rail service from Paddington to Totnes taking approximately 3 hours on the inter-city express. Be wary of buying a single ticket - it is often the same price as a return. It’s about a 4 hour drive from London. Detailed directions given on booking.
