Peacefully set in 240 acres of grounds in a wooded valley, this beautiful old manor house and detached cottage, dating back to the 16th century, is full of traditional character and charm. The Manor is very much a family home, with comfortable furnishings and enjoys a terraced natural garden to the front where wisteria, fruit trees and wildlife flourish, with superb views over open countryside beyond. To the rear is a lily pond surrounded by farmland, where Lily Pond Cottage (a cosy cottage for up to four people) is located.
Both the cottage and Crabadon Manor enjoy a splendid position, quite remote in location off the beaten track and tucked away in the heart of the South Hams countryside, the most southerly part of Devon, with a wonderfully mild climate where many flowers still bloom in December. Beautiful sandy beaches are easily reached and the rugged splendour of the Dartmoor National Park is just 4 miles away.
There are towns full of medieval and Tudor buildings and villages of delightful thatched, colour-washed cottages. The ancient market town of Totnes (4 miles) boasts a splendid Guildhall and fine castle, as well as a sports centre, swimming-pool, motor museum, weekly Elizabethan market (in summer) and boat trips down the Dart Estuary to historic Dartmouth.
The nearby coast offers excellent beaches, surfing and sailing plus wonderful walks along the South Devon Coastal Path. Close by is the wild expanse of Dartmoor, with superb riding and walking. There are many National Trust properties to visit and the stunning nearby village of Harbertonford is only 2 miles away. If you are looking for some real ales and tasty local produce, Harbentenford has a choice of wonderful pubs and restaurants.
