The space
Shepherd’s Cottage is a semi-detached cottage located on a peaceful organic dairy farm near the South Devon coast. The cottage has been tastefully renovated and offers charming accommodation with a comfortable, homely atmosphere and a great character.

Downstairs, the kitchen/living area is open plan with the lounge area at the front. The beautiful chestnut wood flooring originally came from trees on the farm and there is a gorgeous wood-burning stove – perfect for a relaxing winter’s night! The new shaker style kitchen has stone worktops and the original slate floor gives a true farmhouse feel. There is also an extendable table that seats 6 in comfort. At the back of the cottage there is a large shower & utility room with a shower, toilet, sink and a washer/dryer.

Upstairs, the king-sized bedroom has a washbasin and a large sash window with stunning views over the surrounding fields and woodland. There is also a cosy twin room and another slightly smaller room with full size bunk beds. The family bathroom on this floor was totally renovated in 2019 and has a bath with rainfall shower over. Here you can soak away your cares, or just soak your tired and sandy children after a day spent rock pooling on the beach…

The back door leads out into a sunny, secure garden with a large patio and garden furniture. There is a also Weber charcoal barbecue for you to use on sunny summer evenings. There is a gate leading through to our lovely wildflower meadow and children’s play area – complete with tractor!

As well as the woodburner, Shepherd’s Cottage is centrally heated and has all the standard amenities that you would expect. There is a telephone for incoming and emergency calls and free internet (not fast, but fine for browsing and emails). 100% cotton white bed linen and big fluffy towels are all provided, as well as tea-towels, bath mats and environmentally friendly cleaning materials. We put delicious local organic milk in the fridge for your arrival with our compliments, along with enough recycled paper toilet rolls, Fair Trade tea, coffee, sugar and local organic herbal tea to get you started!

Location

Noss Mayo/Newton Ferrers, Nr Plymouth, United Kingdom

A very peaceful, rural location - with just a farm track passing the house. Surrounded by our fields, with the South Devon Coast just a couple of minutes walk away it is a perfect location for a totally get away from it all holiday.

In the heart of the South Hams in Devon, Shepherds Cottage is surrounded by unspoilt countryside and the coastal path is right on the doorstep, providing stunning walks that lead to quiet beaches and picturesque villages.

Shepherds Cottage is in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with an exceptional variety of wildlife and plants, including some extremely rare species that are encouraged because the farm is organic. Carswell Farm is one of the few places in the country where you could spot a cirl bunting and there is a pair of faithful Peregrine Falcons who nest on the cliff here every year. We have an abundance of wildlife – hares, bats and badgers are just a few of the residents you are sure to see, and many more besides. We have barn owls and little owls residing in the old barns behind Lambside House – walk down the farm lane and see if you can see them out hunting.

The remote wilderness of Dartmoor dominates the views to the north and is just a short drive away, while the beautiful estuary of the River Erme and Mothecombe beach are also only a couple of miles from here. With 130 acres of sand at low tide, many well known productions – like ‘Sense and Sensibility’ and ‘Hornblower’ have been filmed in this stunning location.

Explore the nearby picturesque towns of Kingsbridge, Dartmouth and Salcombe, visit the historic maritime city of Plymouth to see where the Mayflower set sail to America or enjoy a visit to the famous National Marine Aquarium.

In a small corner of the stunning South Devon countryside, with fresh sea air and the most beautiful scenery, you will find Carswell Farm. Tucked away on the South Devon coast, our seven holiday cottages are right in the heart of our large working organic dairy farm and yet only a few minutes walk from the coast path and secluded beaches and coves, including our own private cove. As unique in character as they are diverse in style, we have a cottage to suit everybody – offering every accommodation solution from a romantic hideaway for two, to a grand ‘gentleman’s residence’ for fourteen.
