Tucked away on the edge of Tedburn St Mary is Great Huish Farm, a 40 acre sheep farm just a short drive away from the Dartmoor National Park. The original ploughman's quarters have been expertly converted from a 16th century long barn where the heavy horses were stabled, into two superb holiday homes. The Furrow, the larger of the two, retains much of the character of the original barn, with ancient beams and sloping ceilings. The living space is bright, airy and open plan, complete with wood burning stove and oak floors and encompasses a stylish kitchen area. A winding staircase leads to two bedrooms, one of which has glazed doors overlooking the pony field below. To the side of the property is a lovely secluded patio with garden furniture, this leads to a lawned garden which is shared with its neighbour, The Yoke.

South Devon is home to over 20 miles of Torbay coastline which is otherwise known as the 'English Riviera'. Brixton, Paignton and Torquay are the three Riviera towns and are great places to enjoy a day at the seaside. So if you fancy some fresh sea air and picturesque views then visit the 'English Riviera'.
The Dartmoor National Park can be found in Devon and offers visitors a dramatic moorland landscape, ancient woodland, rare wildlife and notable influences, such as the location for Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes case 'The Hound of the Baskervilles'.
We hope you enjoy your break in Devon!
