Many visitors find themselves revisiting Higher Poulston year after year.

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 was an amazing holiday accommodation for a very large Christmas party. It catered for all ages and the sports facilities are an excellent addition to keep everyone entertained. The rooms are very comfortable and spacious. We will be returning!

    Great house and location was excellent. Loved the open plan living area which was perfect for celebrating in. Unfortunately the WiFi was very poor and we ran out of loo rolls by day two. We plan on returning next year as the pool and sports facilities more than made up for the WiFi.

    Property really lends itself to a large family celebration. Everything oozes quality. Kitchen has every conceivable piece of equipment you could wish to use. Lounge is enormous and great for any type of party. Not all bedrooms are ensuite but the ones that aren't have adjacent bathrooms. Comfy spacious bedrooms with plenty of storage space. Sorry to have to say but best take your own towels as ones provided weren't great. Overall experience fabulous. Will definitely be returning.

    Family weekend in September 2019 for a group of 20 with mix of adults and kids ranging from 2-16. The cottage was amazing, everyone had sufficient space and we did not feel on top of one another. The kids all really enjoyed themselves, with plenty of space to play both in and out. The sports are and swimming pool are superb! very handy, considering we had one full day of non stop rain so were unable to go anywhere outside the cottage. The owners have really put alot of thought into this place and have provide everything you need for your holiday to cater for the whole party of 20 people. From the 4 toasters, blankets on Sofas, large 20 seat dinning table to large collection of DVD's and large BBQ. They really do think of everything. Definatley will be retirning

    We had a wonderful holiday here- the additional sports facilities were fabulous and kept everyone busy as the pub was not within walking distance!

    This was our second visit to Wisteria. Fantastic large house well set up for large groups. Lovely big open plan kitchen seating area is great for everyone being able to enjoy being together. Best equipped kitchen ever. And swimming pool, squash,tennis Courts, bowls, trampoline and football net were brilliant for all the family to have fun without having to go out. Only 2 builds would be umbrellas for outside tables and improved WiFi (which was intermittent) would be great. Otherwise the best holiday home we’ve stayed in by far!

    Amazing family holiday. The house itself has everything you could possibly need and in all honesty you could have just stayed within the grounds. The children were kept entertained for the duration of our stay. The house is well designed so even with a large party you weren’t in each other’s feet. Would definitely recommend and stay again.
