“Three charming and beamy converted barns, brimming with character, set in a quiet secluded valley with views across rolling countryside. Just six miles from the seaside, The Stables and The Byre both sleep four, and The Old Granary is a cosy treat for two. Short breaks available for most of the year.”

Lower Collaton Farm is a traditional old Devonshire farmhouse, dating back to Domesday, nestled in a peaceful secluded valley just outside Blackawton, only six miles from Dartmouth, Totnes, Kingsbridge and award winning local beaches such as Blackpool Sands. It is an ideal base for coastal and moorland walking, and for visiting the many local gardens such as Agatha Christie’s Greenway and the D’Oyley Carte’s Collaton Fishacre, (both National Trust). Foodies will enjoy the fish at Mitch Tonks’ famous Sea Horse restaurant in Dartmouth. There are many more fine eating places to try close by!

"Gorgeous village, green fields, starry skies!" The village of Blackawton has just been included in the Sunday Times" top 50 best rural places to live in Britain, surprisingly one of only three villages in Devon. "It's like Ambridge without the melodrama: farms ring a village centre that has a pub, a classy restaurant, a pretty church, a primary school and a post office run by volunteers...An everyday story of (genuine) country folk".

Lower Collaton is a small farm, and apart from the hens in the yard and the call ducks on the ponds, Rosie and James have a very small flock of Shetland, Jacob and Zwartble sheep. Several are particularly friendly, and guests are welcome to be introduced at closer quarters. Three of the old barns have been skilfully converted into comfortable and characterful holiday accommodation.

At the opposite side of the courtyard from the farmhouse is The Byre, converted into a comfortable and spacious two bedroom cottage sleeping four people in two en suite bedrooms (one double, one twin). The twin beds are a ‘zip and link’ which can be converted to a large double. To take advantage of the view of the fields and valley, it is an upside down house, with the living area upstairs. There is a child gate at the top of the stairs.

The living and dining area is open plan, with the original old ‘scissor’ beams exposed, giving the cottage loads of character. Twelve cows used to be milked here, and the names on their stalls are now on the wall in honour of the previous residents! The main and second bedrooms are downstairs looking out onto the patio. Outside there is a small lawn and a patio area, ideal for a good summer barbeque!
The Byre is a no-smoking cottage, and is available from now through to the end of September. Linen, towels and heating are included in the rental. Lettings are from Saturday to Saturday, with short breaks available out of peak season.

The Stables, which also sleeps four, has an upside down layout like The Byre, with open plan on the first floor and a king sized double bedroom and a smaller twin bedroom plus bathroom with bath and separate shower below. The ancient beams are exposed, giving the cottage lots of character. There is an outside seating and bbq area and a further guests area to the rear.

A well behaved dog is welcome by arrangement for a weekly charge of £20. Linen, towels and heating are all included, and it is available from Easter to the end of September. Changeover day is Friday, with short breaks available out of peak season.

Tucked into the opposite side of the courtyard is The Old Granary, a delightful and charming cosy cottage for just two. With maple floor and beamed ceiling, the downstairs bedroom has an adjacent wetroom. Up the winding stairs is the kitchen and living area. Outside is a pretty little garden. It’s available throughout the year, and for short breaks out of peak season.

Changeover day for The Old Granary is Friday. Unfortunately due to its size this little cottage is a dog free zone.
