Garden Cottage at Venn Farm,Ivybridge Information
All on ground floor: Living/dining room/kitchen with tiled floor. 2 twin bedrooms. Shower room with toilet.

This 70-acre Dorset Sheep farm is set in the glorious countryside of South Hams, a uniquely lovely region boasting the mildest year-round climate in Britain. Four very comfortable cottages are scattered around the owners’ farmhouse, varying from a delightful little ‘hideaway’ overlooking the duck pond, to two adjoining cottages, which can be interconnected to accommodate up to 12 people. With its fishing lake stocked with carp, tench and bream (fishing is free of charge for 2 rods (barbless hooks), 3 hours per day) and acres of farmland to which visitors enjoy access, Venn Farm provides a wonderfully relaxing holiday retreat, yet is only two miles from good roads that make it easy to explore further afield. Superb sandy beaches at Mothecombe and Bigbury-on-Sea, and a variety of water sports at the picturesque twin villages of Newton Ferrers and Noss Mayo are all within about half an hour’s drive. The delightful little Georgian town of Modbury, with its specialist and antiqu
e shops and splendid inns, is under 5 miles, whilst nearby is Ivybridge, known as the southern gateway to Dartmoor, offers excellent sports facilities, an indoor pool and a renowned garden centre. Dartmoor National Park lies within easy reach – wild ponies, the Dartmoor Wildlife Park, Widecombe in the Moor and Buckfastleigh Abbey are just some of its attractions. National Trust properties at Saltram House – a magnificent mid-18th century mansion – and Coleton Fishacre are a short drive as is Burgh Island, of Agatha Christie fame. Plymouth and the Eden Project are further afield but afford excellent day trips. Closer to home, good walking, riding and golf can be enjoyed locally, and there are two village pubs within 0.25 miles and shops in Wrangaton, 2 miles. The friendly owners welcome disabled visitors and have ensured that three cottages are suitable for wheelchair access and have flush to floor showers (shared use of a shower chair is available).
