Tucked away in a small corner of the South Devon countryside, with fresh sea air and stunning scenery on your doorstep, sits The Mews, a detached stone farm building which has been lovingly renovated to offer delightful contemporary accommodation for two. Once home to a domesticated goshawk, the barn is now a boutique and romantic retreat, with a private wood fired hot tub on the patio.
The Mews was originally a barn and home to a domesticated goshawk. Now it is a secluded and luxurious hideaway, complete with an antique roll top bath, a spiral staircase and under floor heating. Situated on a working organic dairy farm with cows, sheep and a few chickens, the cottage is in the heart of gorgeous serene countryside, with the coast just minutes away. This is the perfect tranquil rural retreat.
The cottage is situated on Carswell Farm, which stretches for nearly 3 miles along the coast. Designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, this area boasts an exceptional array of plants and wildlife and if you`re lucky you`ll spot everything from a bat or a badger to a peregrine falcon. Unspoilt countryside and the coastal path are right on your doorstep, so lovely walks and quiet beaches are yours to explore. The nearest large sandy beach is at Mothecombe, about 2 miles away, or try Bigbury-on-Sea a few miles further. The area is very popular for sailing or you could visit the nearby villages of Noss Mayo and Newton Ferrers, charming villages with old fishermen's cottages and creekside pubs that serve good food. There is a local Co-Op, post office, butcher and pharmacy in Newton Ferrers or Holbeton, which has two good pubs, a shop and a post office, is also not far away.
We are situated about 4 miles off the A379 (the main road between Plymouth and Kingsbridge) on the Holbeton to Noss Mayo/Newton Ferrers coast road. Full directions will be sent out with confirmation of your booking.
