Wisteria House is a fantastic property with many facilities to suit adults and children; it’s perfect for a special occasion, and can be booked together with another property to accommodate up to 32 guests.

Set in a superb countryside location, off quiet single track country lanes in the heart of South Devon, this delightful holiday property at Higher Poulston is ideal for all age groups. It provides a quiet rural base, yet within driving distance of the many splendid beaches and interesting towns that the area has to offer. Featuring a fantastic leisure complex, with shared use for all guests staying here on holiday, the facilities are open all year around and offer something for all ages and abilities. There is an indoor heated swimming pool and a separate shallow heated toddlers pool. The badminton and squash courts are purpose built to a very high specification. In addition there is a snooker room, table tennis, skittles and short mat bowls. In the grounds surrounding the cottage, there are large open lawn areas to play and picnic and a tennis court.
Wisteria House offers guests exceptional comfort in a spacious and very contemporary design of the property. The kitchen is sleek and has everything you could need to cater for a large family. The dining area is spacious with a huge table that can seat everyone together. The large living room is fabulous with bright and airy space, with three sets of patio doors leading on to the patio and garden. Each bedroom is decorated with fresh colours and excellent quality comfortable beds.
Higher Poulston is set in a rural farming countryside just on the outskirts of the vibrant town of Totnes, nestling on the River Dart. The friendly owners live on site and are happy to help. Many visitors find themselves revisiting Higher Poulston year after year. This is a very family friendly holiday complex; the ideal place for mums and dads to relax in, children to have fun, and grandparents to join in too. There is plenty of parking for all on site and the property shares the superb purpose built leisure facilities that Higher Poulston offers.
Set within its own 6 acres of private land, tucked away along a quiet country lane and close to a working dairy farm. Away from the farm there are many interesting places to explore. There is a little tourist information room on site and in here you will find plenty of ideas for days out and about. For your local shopping, Harbertonford, 1 mile, has a small village shop, a pub and post office. Also, the village of Morleigh, 1 mile, has a pub serving food. The ancient town of Totnes, just 3 miles away, has a range of quirky independent shops and bistros and is a vibrant and interesting place to visit, especially on Fridays when the market comes to town.
The South Devon coastline is close at hand, has many beautiful beaches and coves, scenic walks and pretty villages including Blackpool Sands and Slapton. Enjoy a day out in the riverside marine town of Dartmouth and take a cruise along the river to Totnes or the ferry across to Kingswear, and the quaint fishing town of Brixham, then ride on the steam train to Paignton or Buckfastleigh. Within easy reach are the English Riviera resorts of Paignton and Torquay, the boating and sailing centre of Salcombe on the estuary and the historic town of Dartmouth, nestling on the banks of the River Dart. Woodlands Fun Park is a great tourist attraction and fun day out for families, as is Dartmoor National Park, with its hundreds of acres of wild rugged moorland, both about 4 miles away. Close to Dartmouth you can play golf on an 18-hole championship course (Higher Poulston visitors receive a discount at Dartmouth golf and country club). Bike and kayak hire are available locally.
This property can be booked together with Poulston House (UKC890) to accommodate up to 32 guests.

    This is the 4th booking , so it must be good. Best place to sleep 20 with access to sports hall with swimming pool and in the heart of Devon. Extremely friendly owners and their dog who is quite passive (I'm not dog friendly and i liked the dog) House was uncomfortably hot for me this time and needed more ventilation. Some fans would be nice but reluctant to swing open all the doors and windows because of the flies / insects.

    This is a great cottage and you cannot fail to enjoy your stay. We booked to celebrate a 50th birthday and it was all we could wish for. The owner lives just behind the cottage but apart from an initial welcome you do not know they are so close. The pool and other facilities are great, particularly if you have a rainy day like we did. I would have no hesitation in recommending this cottage to anyone.

    Wisteria House exceeded my expectations. Despite being the one who booked it and seeing all the photos, I was still overwhelmed when we arrived and saw the place! The house is so well equipped to cater for large groups, with an enormous lounge and dining table and a fully equipped kitchen with everything you could possibly need. (There are 2 dishwashers, 2 ovens, massive fridges, freezer, 2 kettles, 2 toasters, so plenty to cater for all.) The bedrooms are lovely, as are the bathrooms and everything was lovely and clean. The facilities are also amazing, particularly the pool. The owners were there to greet us on arrival and show us around the facilities. All members of our party were really impressed and we've already talked about returning again in the future. I cannot recommend this place enough. AMAZING. (Tip: We used Asda's home delivery service to have the food for the weekend delivered straight to the house. This was fab and saved the hassle of taking food with us, or wasting time going out to the shops once we'd arrived.)

    A fabulous cottage for our large group including 8 young kids. The pool/games building was great and we definitely made the most if it. It is fairly remote but with more than enough to keep you occupied.The owners were lovely to deal with and the cake on arrival was a nice touch.

    House is perfect for a large group. Spacious and well equipped. Everything is high spec and the kitchen equipment has everything that you could possibly want. On site sports facilities excellent and fully equipped and the pool is an amazing size. Owners on site were helpful and very welcoming. What an amazing time we had.
