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 owner was so helpful. Our seven grandchildren enjoyed all the leisure facilities including the go carts! They were never without something to do. Consequently, the adults had a very relaxing time. The walks on Dartmoor and the tor climbs were amazing as was the Lydford Gorge. We could have stayed another week and still found plenty to do. The house was so well equiped - we lacked for nothing.

    We enjoyed our stay at Sherrill Farm, loads to do with the swimming pool, games room, play area and tennis courts. We stayed in farmhouse and we had separate hot tub and garden which was really enjoyed.

    We were an extended family staying in the farmhouse and it suited our needs to a point but it is in urgent need of a good clean, decoration and update. The carpets are filthy and worn, there were cobwebs in all rooms and some rooms smelled, possibly of mice as we found droppings in the ground floor bedroom. The swimming pool and hot tub were good but the facilities in the games room poor - bald table tennis bats, few balls and broken nets, no white ball for the snooker table and it was a generally grim room.

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you for taking the time to feedback important comments and observations and I am sorry that you feel disappointed with your stay at Sherrill Farmhouse. All of the cottages are cleaned thoroughly before every arrival and no evidence of any mice has been found in the Farmhouse before or after your visit. You will see from previous reviews that the cottage regularly receives high scores for the level of cleanliness but it is the case that the Farmhouse is located in the Devon countryside therefore we do get the occasional spider. The suggestions with regard to the games room have been taken on board and are currently being implemented to ensure the facilities are up to standard. Table tennis bats etc. are replaced regularly as general wear and tear does occur from guest use.

    We had a lovely weekend staying here, 8 adults and 8 children. It was very quiet (until we turned up!) with no other guests staying in the cottages. The Farmhouse was very spacious and comfortable and everything we needed was to hand. The hot tub was a hit with kids and grown ups and there was plenty of fridge and cooking space. Swimming pool was a decent size and the kids all enjoyed it. The cottage itself is a little shabby round the edges but this was fine and in fact made it less stressful when the children were playing endless games of hide and seek :). The owner came by a few times and kept us stocked with fire wood and checked on the hot tub. He was very friendly and helpful but not in an intrusive way. We had one problem with the hot water and heating but he traced this to a leaky pipe and had it fixed within 15 minutes. We would go again
