Dartmouth Holiday Homes

A superb range of unique and characterful holiday properties in the centre of this beautiful Devon harbour town.


Lovage Cottage is the ultimate holiday home for families. Situated on a working farm, guests can get involved and feed the animals.

Just a mile inland from the beach and sea at Man Sands, these five cottages enjoy a gloriously secluded rural situation on a 47-acre working farm, yet are convenient for the delights of picturesque Kingswear (1½ miles) and historic Dartmouth. Imaginatively formed within a charming group of barns, they are set in superb landscaped shared gardens. An indoor heated swimming pool and a sauna have been created in a separate building, and a further barn offers facilities for table tennis, pool table, ‘fun’ netball and badminton. A spacious play area within a walled garden is equipped with swings, a sand pit, adventure playground, large outdoor trampoline (with safety netting), a large lawned area with raised decking, complete with garden furniture and views over the surrounding countryside; and here there is also an indoor playroom with ball pool, climbing frame and a range of children’s ride-on tractors and cars for outdoor use. The gardens are a riot of colour, with flower beds, tubs, hanging baskets and an intriguing network of brick paths, courtyards and paved terraces. Further afield the estate includes a well-stocked one-acre fishing lake (rods not supplied). Children are welcome to help feed the animals; and there are goats, ponies, kune kune pigs, sheep, lambs, rabbits and guinea pigs to make friends with. The taste of rural life at Nethway continues with walks through the fields.
The cottages themselves have been meticulously converted, with careful use of traditional stone and slate. All are tastefully furnished and decorated throughout, and comprehensively equipped. All of the properties have their own patios with furniture (Hyssop and Lovage Cottages have their own lawned garden), and all enjoy shared use of a separate barbecue area. They are ideal for holidays at any time of the year – all properties are cosily heated throughout and this region is especially beautiful in the quieter off-season months. For Christmas and New Year holidays, each cottage has a festively decorated Christmas tree and the roaring log fires in all living rooms are ideal for the Autumn and Winter months. This peninsula is a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is renowned for its coastline, which offers coastal walks and a choice of footpaths leading to secluded beaches. The village of Kingswear itself is set on the Dart estuary opposite Dartmouth – which can be reached via ferry. Here you will find a wealth of things to do, including the Kingswear–Paignton steam railway, Paignton Zoo and Woodlands Leisure Park, to name but a few, and many Blue Flag beaches and hidden coves are within easy reach. Coleton Fishacre (NT) is 1 mile away. Torquay, Brixham and Paignton offer an array of seaside attractions and are within easy driving distance. Dittisham and Totnes make excellent river excursions from Dartmouth, and Dartmoor is only 45 minutes drive. Golf, sailing and riding can all be enjoyed locally and the nearby coastline boasts a choice of surfing beaches. Shops 1½ miles.

Attractive living/dining room with wood-burning stove. Modern fitted kitchen. First floor: Double bedroom. Twin bedroom. Bathroom with over-bath shower and toilet.

    Lovely cottage with excellent facilities. Was very good for our 6 month old daughter as we were able to request a cot and high chair in the cottage. There were also stair gates and other safety features for little ones. The kitchen had pretty much all the equipment you could think of (although it was missing a potato masher!!!) Absolutely beautiful setting. The cottage had its own little garden with a decked area and outside dining set. The surrounding landscape was beautiful and it was lovely being on a farm so we could walk out and see the animals in the evening, including some new born lambs! The swimming pool was warm with very good facilities and the children's play area was a real bonus.

    We had a lovely time at Nethway farm, it was an ideal break with our daughter (15 months), she loved the animals, the swimming pool, the play room and swings. Beautiful surroundings, I only wish we had stayed longer and the weather had been nicer

    Wow, what a lovely week stay in Lovage Cottage, the actual cottage itself is surprisingly spacious, well equipped and furnished and the private garden is a nice perk! Nethway farm is fantastic, so much for kids to do, we were lucky with the weather, but if it was raining, at least there is plenty to keep the kids occupied. The Farm is so peaceful and set in lovely rolling countryside and the owners were very friendly and welcoming The surrounding area, so much to see and do, from Paignton Zoo, Paddle Steamer, Steam Trains, Model Village, a really lovely area of the world to visit We will definitely be returning in the near future! Thank you Nethway Farm for a fab holiday!
