Formerly a summer retreat for the monks of Buckfast Abbey, this magnificent manor house dates as far back as the 13th Century and is the perfect choice for those who put country-style living above and beyond modern gadgetry.
It’s a place where you can all step off the tread mill and enjoy the simple pleasures in life. Take time for long leisurely breakfasts in the big farmhouse kitchen or garden; cycling the flower filled country lanes discovering the beauty of the South Hams along the way; put on your wellingtons and enjoy the day exploring the glorious countryside that surrounds; or launching your boat, canoe or kayak from Dittisham for a splash around on the water. There is a television and land phone line (as there is little phone signal) and also WiFi which has just been installed.
Guests can also use the leisure facilities including a fabulous swimming pool by arrangement at the nearby neighbours up the lane.
