Description - At the end of a no through road, Higher Torr Farm is peacefully located in a rural setting in the heart of the South Hams with far reaching rural views towards south Dartmoor. Surrounded by its own land the property includes a period stone farmhouse and a range of converted stone barns providing high quality holiday letting accommodation.

Location - The South Hams is a sought after area for both residents and visitors with its beautiful countryside with lush farmland and wooded river valleys, charming estuaries and dramatic coastline with sandy beaches. On its northernmost boundary is Dartmoor National Park which has many thousands of beautiful unspoilt moorland acres in which to enjoy a wide range of outdoor pursuits including walking, riding, cycling and fishing.

Higher Torr Farm is just 2 miles from the village of East Allington with a church, primary school, village hall, public house and recreation ground and falls within the catchment of Kingsbridge Academy. The ancient market town of Kingsbridge (4 miles) has a wide range of shops, cafes, restaurants and pubs. Salcombe (10 miles) is Devons most southernmost town and has a beautiful harbour, unspoilt estuary with lovely sandy beaches and an excellent range of fine shops, restaurants and inns. Totnes (10 miles) is a bustling market town full of colour and character with a range of independent shops and galleries together with riverside walks and ferry trips along the
River Dart.

In addition to these charming towns, visitors also come to try some of the 30 beaches in the South Hams including Bigbury on Sea, Bantham, Thurlestone, Hope Cove, Salcombe and Blackpool Sands. The hidden paradise of subtropical gardens and quirky collections at the National Trust property Overbecks. History at Dartmouth Castle, Totnes Castle and Berry Pomeroy Castle. Outdoor activities including sailing, surfing, cycling and of course walking the South West Coast Path. Many villages and towns have food festivals, music festivals, carnival and regatta weeks welcoming visitors and residents alike.

The Farmhouse - Set to one side of the cottages, the farmhouse has an established garden to the front with steps down to the stone built porch. A
separate track leads to private parking at the rear. This period family home is not Listed and benefits from thick stone walls and high ceilings. For further information please see the floor plan but in brief it comprises:

The Cottages - Over 10 years ago a number of redundant Victorian stone farm barns were converted into 4 holiday cottages. They provide well thought out accommodation presented to a very high standard and generate good levels of repeat business. Each cottage has an area of outside seating and space to park their car. Guests can use the games facilities in the barn and the playing field.
