Farthingfield is a handsome reverse level barn conversion looking over the charming creekside village of South Pool. This comfortable property has four good size bedrooms, all with ensuite bath or shower rooms, a lovely kitchen diner, with a balcony to enjoy an al fresco breakfast whilst taking in the views of the surrounding village and countryside, and a large lounge with an open fire and a feature window looking down towards the creek nearby. There is plenty of space outside for children to run and play, along with a play area, and a large built in table and barbecue to savour summer meals. The space and flexibility of this property lends it well to friends or family coming together to celebrate special occasions or just to have a great holiday exploring the beaches, towns, countryside and leisure facilities around the glorious South Hams area, and the proximity to the creek means watersports’ enthusiasts can even walk down to make the most of the high tides. A lovely property for a break whatever the time of year.
The village of South Pool sits on an inlet of the Kingsbridge and Salcombe Estuary, allowing water access for boating and watersports’ enthusiasts. The popular pub The Millbrook Inn sits in the heart of the village, serving delicious food and hosting events such as The Millbrook Nativity along with live music to accompany your Sunday Roast, and barbecues through the summer. There are a number of scenic walks around the village and the beautiful sandy beaches at East Portlemouth and Millbay, along with the foot ferry to Salcombe are just three miles away. Further beaches are within four miles at Beesands and Torcross, and both these villages have good local pubs, and other popular eateries. A fifteen minute drive will take you to the market town of Kingsbridge, with shops, cafes, pubs, restaurants and a cinema. Dartmouth is around thirty minutes away with shops and eateries along with the historic castle and the Royal Naval college. Woodlands leisure park is great for a family day out, and those keen on walking can explore the South West Coast Path nearby and Dartmoor a forty minute drive away. With lots to explore a week may not be long enough.
