Overview

Property

Updated: 28-Nov-2016
Lovely 4 Star cottages in a tranquil valley less than a mile from the beach, SW Coastpath, beachside pub and seafood cafe.

Beeson Farm is a non working farm, less than a mile from the beach in the idyllic south Devon countryside. We are surrounded by stunning coastal scenery, perfect for days on the beach, walking, crabbing, rockpooling, swimming, surfing and kayaking. The countryside around is dissected by beautiful estuaries, rivers, lakes and nature reserves. The South Hams has many picturesque villages and interesting historic towns such as Salcombe and Dartmouth to explore. There are N.T. properties nearby, including the home of Agatha Christie. Day trips will take you further afield to attractions such as The Eden Project and National Marine Aquarium. The wild splendour of Dartmoor is within a 40 minute drive. All cottages are centrally heated and well equipped. For families we have highchairs, travel cots, changing mat, toys and books. We offer a choice of dog welcome (in The Dairy, Shippon and Bull House) or pet and feather free (in The Linhay and Trap House) cottages. The Dairy and Linhay offer disabled access. Some cottages have log burners, four poster beds and private fenced gardens. We have an indoor games room, under 10's play area in the cider orchard, fenced wildlife ponds (with supervised pond dipping in the school holidays). Children are welcome to help feed the chickens and collect eggs. 2 person off season discounts and short breaks are available. Homemade cider from our orchard is available from the farmhouse, and guests are welcome to help with apple pressing in the Autumn. Beeson Farm has 5 cottages in total (sleeping up to 22), and is ideal for a family holiday, romantic retreat or as a base for exploring the glorious South Hams.

About the Owner

We believe we have managed to do what many people dream of doing - our own escape to the country! We escaped from the rat race of crowded suburbia, having fallen in love with Beeson Farm, an historic, disused and derelict Devon farm nestling in a wonderfully tranquil valley less than a mile from a wonderful, unspoilt beach. We are a family run business and are delighted to offer you beautifully restored cottages which have retained their character whilst providing every comfort. We have achieved AA 4 stars rating and recommendations from the Guardian, Express and Woman magazine. Our environmental efforts have resulted in being awarded a Gold Green Tourism Award.

We offer a range of quality accommodation which is child friendly, dog welcome or pet & feather free and wheelchair accessible. We look forward to welcoming you to our corner of Devon.

We can now also offer you our beautiful, fully equipped, architect designed villa in Kastellos near Rethymnon, Crete. It is most wonderfully and privately located with stunning views of the Aegean Sea and White Mountains, has 3 bedrooms, 3 bath/shower rooms, fully equipped kitchen, lounge, entrance vestibule and a large swimming pool with roman steps. There is a very attractive pool area with BBQ and pool house which contains a kitchenette and shower room so you don't need to go into the villa when you are settled next to the pool. The villa is surrounded by extensive grounds containing trees, shrubs and pretty flower beds.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Just wanted to review - we stayed over Easter which was fantastic . We are a city family who just loved the outdoor space where our children were safe . Our children thought the chickens were the best thing ever running over to the cottage with fresh egg each . We hired a cottage and so did my parents which meant they were at hand to help but not on top of us . We could be seen most evening carrying our evening meal across the courtyard . The cottages are gorgeous and set up even if it rains you will be occupied . The children's welcome pack is well received with colour pencils drawing and nature trails which grandpa had to go on . There is so much to do in the area . Amazing thank you all X Definitely visit the farm shop , tor cross for ice cream , the light house , Dartmouth for a ferry , salcombe and our best day hope cove

Want to re-book for next year!

The Trapp House is a beautiful cottage, very clean and well equipped and having three bathrooms was ideal.

The setting is perfect too as the kids loved being able to be in the private garden, scooting up and down the path or playing with the equipment and chickens.

We would definitely recommend Lanacombe Bay, Mill Bay and Kingsbridge to visit but there are so many other awesome places locally we want to go back next year and will be looking to re-book the Trapp House with Robin and Ronnie.

From the Owner

Beeson Farm is in an idyllic, peaceful, sheltered South Devon valley. Less than a mile from Beesands beach (with great pub and seafood cafe) we are an ideal base for those wishing to explore the SW coastpath, with its lovely beaches and coves. The local beaches are perfect for swimming, surfing, kayaking and fishing, or for quiet picnics. Although we are in a quiet village- all you can hear are the birds and the occasional tractor, we are not remote - the villages of Stokenham and Chillington with village shops, farm shop, great pubs, bus service and the A379 Dartmouth to Plymouth road is less than 2 miles away. The interesting historic towns of Kingsbridge (7 miles) and Dartmouth (8 miles) offer banks, supermarkets and lots of independent and boutique shops. Many wonderful NT houses and gardens are nearby including Greenway (Agatha Christie's house & garden on the banks of the river Dart). Dartmoor is within easy reach for day trips. We hope to welcome you to our delightful corner of Devon.

Children (and adults too!) can play in our play area in the orchard and play table tennis in our games room. We have a badminton net on the lawn in the summer and offer supervised pond dipping in our fenced wildlife pond in the school holidays. There are lovely local green lane and coast path walks, bird spotting, diving, surfing, kayaking, sailing and of course, swimming. Popular days out include steam railways, boat trips, Paignton Zoo, Plymouth's National Marine Aquarium, Dartmoor and visitor attractions like Woodlands Adventure Park and Pennywell Farm.
