Poulston House is perfect for a family gathering or special occasion throughout the year, as there is so much to keep the family entertained on site.

There is an indoor heated swimming pool and a separate shallow heated toddler’s pool. The badminton and squash courts are purpose built to a very high specification and in addition there is a snooker room, table tennis, skittles and short mat bowls. The house has a lovely stone patio with water feature and looks out across a large lawned area, which is great for an evening of relaxing, and truly immersing in this spectacular location.
Higher Poulston is set in rural farming countryside just on the outskirts of the vibrant town of Totnes, nestling on the River Dart, and as well as Poulston House, there are other properties within the vicinity. The friendly owners live on site and are happy to help.
