Description

This larger holiday property is set over two levels and has en-suite facilities to each bedroom!

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.

    The cottage is dank and dark and having not been upgraded for at least a decade rather grubby. On arrival the downstairs carpet was covered in white dog hair. The double beds were extremely uncomfortable and the downstairs shower room has a tiny hand basin and an ineffectual extractor fan. The tap water is extremely hot. Fennel also has another dwelling underneath which was unexpected. The exterior is unkempt with a broken trampoline and exposed screws on the swing. There are stinging nettles and brambles everywhere and the car parking is chaotic making it very dangerous for young children. The games room was filthy and the carpet needed replacing.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; We were very disappointed to read your review following your recent stay at Fennel. The property is thoroughly cleaned prior to each guest’s arrival, the carpet in the games room is cleaned on a weekly basis as it doesn’t see as much traffic as the rest of the house. The beds have medium to firm mattresses - as preferences vary from guest to guest we try to cater for as many as possible. The extractor fan in the downstairs shower room is in full working order and I agree it is only a small sink; anything greater in size would not fit. The springs in the trampoline and screws in the swing have now been repaired. There are nettles and brambles in the hedges and down near the ponds as this is great for the local wildlife and encourages the butterflies, hedgehogs, birds etc. to the property as we are in a rural location, however there are clear wide paths for everyone to gain access. With regard to the car parking, Fennel Cottage has its own car parking area available, which will accommodate up to four cars and has never been a problem. Whilst we realise that the cottage will not be for everyone, we are sad there are no positive points in your review and are genuinely disappointed to receive such a low score, which is not consistent with our usual feedback.

    Had a lovely time at Fennel cottage was lovely and plenty of space, really liked the on suite bathrooms they were a great bonus. Swimming pool was lovely and mostly had it to ourselves each day, games room was also a plus, only down side was its location beautiful surroundings just a bit remote and also no secure garden area to allow dogs off their leads. We really did enjoy our stay though x
