Nestled down an unmade lane sits Lower Winsford Farm and these four converted barns that once belonged to a nearby stately home, all set within the owner’s grounds. Medley’s Cottage (ref UKC2116) and The Garden House (ref UKC3634) are perfect for couples or families, whilst Ostler’s Cottage (ref UKC3635) and Verbena Cottage (ref UKC3636) offer the perfect couples escape. With central heating, heat-recovery ventilation, solar hot water and electricity, you’ll be warm and cosy in these beautifully-appointed dwellings. All have contemporary, luxurious and well-equipped living spaces, three of which have French doors that open out onto a private patio and garden area, the perfect spot to enjoy a lazy breakfast. From Medley’s Cottage and Verbena Cottage you can soak up the views of the woods and lake. Each property has its own garden and garden furniture, and private, allocated parking, but there are spaces for up to 10 cars on-site.
Beyond the private gardens guests can explore a further 18 acres of gardens and grounds. Why not stroll round the large water lily fringed lake, relax in the summerhouse on the south shore or walk more than a mile of paths alongside the stream and through the woods. A rowing boat is available for guests to use on the lake. You can observe the wildlife from the strategically placed hide and vantage points. Barn owls, kingfishers and herds of deer are regular sights, but you can also see grass snakes, badgers, foxes and no end of bird species, some quite rare. On clear winter nights you’ll be astonished by the dark sky, which provides a fantastic view of stars which can’t be seen in other parts of the UK, due to light pollution.
There are lovely country, woodland and coastal walks and for cycling enthusiasts, the nearby Tarka Trail is not to be missed, and Dartmoor National Park is a must for nature lovers. Golf, surfing, fishing and horse riding are all on offer in this stunning location. For family fun, The Big Sheep and The Milky Way adventure parks are close by and there are numerous National Trust properties in the area. Beach 17 miles. Shop, pub and restaurant 1 mile.
These properties can be booked together to accommodate up to 12 guests.

Medley's cottage is in a beautiful location, overlooking a secluded garden and a small boating lake. We went with friends so there were four adults in total, but there was enough space and privacy for it not to feel crowded. One bedroom is smaller than the other and has a windowless en-suite bathroom, but this bedroom has the advantage of looking out towards the lake. The cottage is well furnished and equipped and has everything you need for a relaxed stay.

A lovely holiday cottage set in a great location. The cottage is very comfortable, well equipped, the beds are very comfortable , lovely bathrooms with good showers, there is really nothing not to like about this property. Set in picturesque grounds with a great view down the garden to the lake. A perfect spot for relaxing and enjoying the peace and quiet and the wildlife. We enjoyed being able to stroll around the ground and the lake, we even caught a glimpse of the resident kingfisher. The local amenities are perfect they are the night sky, the gardens and the wildlife, although there is a pub and shop close buy should you need them. We would definitively wish to return to the property.
