Welcome Cottages

A carefully curated collection of properties that offer high quality, good value accommodation in great locations across the UK, Ireland, France and Italy


This single-storey property, converted from a former barn, is the perfect base for touring Devon and Cornwall.

Sherrill Farm Holiday Cottages is a complex of 13 delightful self catering cottages (refs UKC1427 to UKC1439), converted from the original 300 year old barns and farmhouse set within 16 acres of Devon farmland. Clustered around the central courtyard, the properties retain many original features and are charmingly furnished and decorated, with well-equipped kitchens. (Some properties are adjoining, whilst others occupy either the ground floor or the first floor of the same cottage). Located near Dartmoor and midway between Tavistock and Launceston on the Devon/Cornwall border, in wonderful rolling countryside.

Approached by its own private driveway, Sherrill Farm is a perfect spot to relax and unwind or to use as a base for exploring north and south Devon, and Cornwall.

This farm complex is a superb place for the entire family, and all guests have use of the large indoor heated swimming pool, Jacuzzi, gymnasium, bowling alley and games room. This leisure complex is open daily until 9pm. After an energetic swim you can step out onto the surrounding sun terrace and enjoy the stunning south-facing views, whilst the children keep themselves entertained in their own play area. There is also an all-weather tennis court available and rackets can be hired on site; a picnic area and a summerhouse along the banks of the ponds. This really is a beautiful area offering perfect family accommodation, peace and tranquillity.

There are three ponds within the grounds, one has been especially created to encourage wildlife and is set in beautiful surroundings. The other 2 ponds have been stocked with fish for those wishing to try their hand at this relaxing pastime (rods can be hired on site). Many bird species can be seen in the area as it is so quiet here and foxes and badgers are often seen on a summer’s evening.

A short drive away is the beautiful Tamar Valley dividing Devon and Cornwall, with picturesque and historical riverside villages including Morewellham. Within minutes you can be venturing out onto the Dartmoor National Park with over 250,000 acres of wild rugged open moorland, a haven for hikers or dog walkers. There are many exciting places to visit including Morwellham Quay and the National Trust properties of Cotehele, Buckland Abbey and Lydford Gorge with its White Lady Waterfall.

The historic market town of Tavistock is just 6 miles away and is a popular town with indoor pannier market and local shops selling locally produced foods. Horse riding is also available locally, as is trout fishing. Why not try canoeing on the River Tamar, or perhaps cycling on the Plym Valley track? The north and south coasts of both Devon and Cornwall are within easy reach by car and offer an amazing choice of splendid sandy beaches, a variety of water sports, cliff top walks, swimming, surfing and other seaside activities. The owners can also recommend local caterers, and guests can contact Lifton Farm Shop to organise a hog roast. Beach 20 miles. Shop 4½ miles, pub 1 mile and restaurant 1¼ miles.

    I found Sherrill Farm idyllic. Very peaceful and a lovely sense of freedom. I don't usually want to return to holiday places but I would like to go back there although it is a 6 hour journey from home. The pool and Jacuzzi were great, as were the table tennis and other activities. Ian the owner was very pleasant and helpful. Scruffy the dog was lovely, he mooched around befriending everyone.

    Dill is one of several cottages on a site of 15-20 cottages.The cottage was small but quite suitable for a couple very well equipped and very cosy. The amenities on site were very good,a small games area and an excellent swimming pool. While a lot of the cottages had outside eating or drinking areas Dill did not,although there are public seating areas nearby. The site has wonderful views over the countryside,beware if you walk near the lakes,take insect repellant as you will be eaten alive. One downside,the pub was stated as one mile away,so we envisaged a gentle stroll there and back.The pub is nearer 2 miles and cannot be walked due to being on a busy road with no pathway.(The pub was excellent) All in all we had a lovely week,Ian,was always available if you needed something,and his dog,Scruffy,is adorable. Plenty of easily accessible places to visit from this ideal holiday base.
