One-Off Feature

A three bedroom oak framed barn conversion in the grounds of a 17th century Devon Manor House.  Set in a tranquil valley near the river Dart, yet just a few minutes from the Devon coast, this is a magnificent setting for a holiday.   With an indoor heated pool, sauna, gym, games room, piano, table tennis, grass tennis court and a wood panelled bar with log fire, books and games, you’ll struggle to drag yourself away!

General Info

A handsome listed 17th Century Devon Manor House (mentioned in the Doomsday Book),  Fingals has been family owned and run for 30 years. The main house offers bed and breakfast in four stylish en suite bedrooms and there are five self catering cottage apartments on site each sleeping 2-6 people.  Larger groups, who want to be close but not on top of each other, can rent separate units and share the common areas.  Mingle with other guests in the sociable bar and communal sitting room in the old manor farmhouse and enjoy a delicious dinner (available two evenings a week) in the restaurant.  Fingals is perfect for house parties, wedding receptions, romantic weekends away and family holidays; everyone is welcome.  It is quite simply a very special place to stay.

The Area Surrounding The Property / Accommodation

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.

Accommodation Details

Interior Details

The barn is constructed with oak beams interspersed with glass, giving it a wonderful rustic, warm feeling.  It is set on two levels.  The front door is accessed via a wooden staircase to a private balcony overlooking the tennis court.  There are three bedrooms - two smaller alcove bedrooms (a twin and a double) and a deluxe ensuite bedroom downstairs with access to its own garden.  The living space is open plan.  At one end is a well equipped kitchen / dining area with electric oven and hob, fridge freezer, microwave and dishwasher.  The other end has a spacious sitting area with comfy sofas and chairs, a sofa bed, a grand piano, colour TV, DVD player and hifi.  The upstairs bathroom has a roll top bath.  The downstairs bathroom has a bath and shower.  There is a small separate utility room with WC and washer dryer.

Exterior Details

Fingals is set in a lovingly tended garden with secluded and secret corners where you can read and relax.  If you’re quiet enough, you’ll see and hear a huge variety of birds, and in the evening see bats. The swimming pool is in a conservatory, full of exotic plants, which opens up to the elements in the summer out on to the stream. There is a contraflow pump at one end for those wishing to exercise. The Sauna has a large window looking over the stream.  There is a gym equipped with a rowing machine, exercise bikes, a cross trainer and multi gym where you can watch your favourite TV programme. The Games Room has pool/snooker, table football and an outside ping pong patio. The grass tennis court is the envy of many a club player and is suitable for competitive tennis in the beautiful surroundings of our walled garden. The croquet lawn is in front of the bar.

Further Details

Situated just outside the village of Dittisham, Fingals offers something magical. If you are looking for a special place for your stay in Devon - somewhere different from the run of the mill - then Fingals is for you.  Fingals is child friendly - kind to kids and dogs as well as adults. If you are looking for a family holiday, a weekend break, or a secluded romantic honeymoon venue, then Fingals should be top of your list.  Breakfast is a relaxed affair with fresh squeezed orange juice, freshly baked croissants, organic muesli and a traditional English breakfast. Dinners served 2 nights per week (or by arrangement).  Tea and freshly baked cakes can be taken in the garden or the Orangery.

Conditions of Rental

Restaurant open at least 2 nights per week in summer.  High tea can be provided for children (
