Set in a superb countryside location, off quiet single track country lanes, in the heart of South Devon, this delightful holiday property 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 round 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 cottages, there are large open lawn areas to play and picnic and a tennis court.
Garden Cottage is a smaller more traditional barn conversion with a lovely conservatory overlooking the garden. The open plan living/dining room has a vaulted ceiling and A-frame beams, and the bedrooms are comfortable and cosy.
It is set in rural farming countryside on Higher Poulston Farm just on the outskirts of the vibrant town of Totnes, nestling on the River Dart. Many visitirs find themselves revisiting Garden Cottage 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 properties share the superb purpose built leisure facilities that Higher Poulston offers. Tucked away along quiet country lanes, and close to a working dairy farm. Away from the farm there are many interesting places to explore. 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.

    We had a lovely time at Garden Cottage. It’s comfortable and well equipped and the onsite facilities of a swimming pool, games room and outdoor play area was a great bonus for our family. The cottage has a large garden (it’s not able to be secured for dogs) which will be lovely to enjoy in the spring and summer. It’s a short drive to the local village or a mile or so walk but there’s not much there and as it’s a single track road, we drove everywhere. I think you’d need a car to appreciate the local area and to get to the beaches. Totnes is a 10 minute drive and there’s a large Morrison’s, lots of pubs and more cafes and restaurants than you could ever visit in one week. Ben’s Tapas and Wine bar comes highly recommended. We would definitely visit and stay again.
