Tenure: Freehold

A Victorian country house with superb range of stone built outbuildings, gardens, paddock and yard, in total extending to over 4 acres, situated on the edge of the village of Holbeton and within 2 miles of the beautiful sandy cove at Mothecombe Beach


Cottage Farm is situated on the fringe of the village of Holbeton, a beautiful and active village in the South Hams. Holbeton is largely protected by the Flete Estate, a privately owned Estate, which has a strong influence on the high standards maintained within the farms and villages of the area. Holbeton has a post office and village store, an active church, a village pub and excellent primary school. The village is close to the wooded banks of the River Erme and within 2 miles of the glorious white sandy cove at Mothecombe. The A38 Devon Expressway just 6 miles distant provides access to Cornwall and the M5 at Exeter.


Cottage Farm is a handsome detached house dating from the Victorian era. The pretty stone built house is in need of updating but offers spacious and traditional accommodation with beautiful garden and country outlooks from most rooms.

The accommodation is arranged over 3 floors, with the ground floor offering a farmhouse kitchen with flagstone floor and walk in pantry, and a further 4 reception rooms, including a vaulted sitting room with full width decked balcony. The first floor offers four bedrooms, a bathroom and a shower room. From the entrance hall, a circular staircase descends to the cellar, a wonderful area with good head height and offers double doors leading to the terrace and garden beyond.

A superb feature of Cottage Farm is the extensive range of outbuildings forming the courtyard that compliments the farmhouse. The yard and stone built barns are very well presented and offer great potential for a variety of uses. The plans show in detail the current configuration, however an area worthy of specific mention is the first floor of the barn, an impressive room of some 60' with a beautiful internal beamed roof and exposed stone walls. In addition to the barns, there is a large car port providing parking for 2/3 cars.

The gardens are well established and offer complete privacy with stone walling and hedgerow boundaries. The garden is largely laid to lawn with a selection of mature trees, shrubs and beds. Just off the yard, is gated access to the paddock, which has over the years been thoughtfully planted with a superb variety of trees, offering natural shelter for horses or livestock.
