About the Owner

Flear Farm is family-owned and run by us, Camilla and Barney Fawcett, and assisted by our little boy Reuben. We have always loved the country and after several years chasing our tails in London, we decided that we wanted us and our children to have greater exposure to nature and a more traditional pace of life. Keeping the cottages and the estate looking beautiful has been challenging but very rewarding, and we get a lot of our satisfaction from giving our families a super holiday and seeing them come back again the next year.

We spent several years trudging around with estate agents and looking over properties and saw hundreds of them. Flear Farm, it's period cottages and the surrounding area was so arrestingly beautiful that we stopped our exhaustive search immediately. The estate is in the heart of the South Hams and fabulously situated in the rolling hills of some of England most celebrated countryside virtually surrounded by wonderful beaches and coastline. Flear is a private country estate set away from the holiday hot spots whilst allowing easy access to the regions finest beaches and countryside for those who forage out of the gates and beyond.
