Enjoy a countryside retreat in comfort.  Whether it be a romantic getaway, anniversary or just a space to unwind and relax, The Cartshed won’t disappoint.

Twenty minutes from the A38, the farm itself dates back over one thousand years.  It is now a superb countryside retreat or romantic getaway, for up to four guests to unwind and enjoy.

Enjoy an open-planned layout with comfy sofas, a well-equipped kitchen with portable oven, and dining area.  There is a wood-burning stove that is perfect for the winter months and colder evenings.  The kitchen will be supplied with t-towels and a sundry pack, and the bathroom with both toilet rolls and hand soap.  Gaze out across the valley and enjoy a glass of your favourite tipple.

Upstairs, the mezzanine floor is home to the bedroom with a view of the valley behind and the living area below. There is also a sofa bed that can be made available if required for extra guests.  We ask you to confirm if it is required when booking your countryside retreat.

There is a private and enclosed rear garden area, accessed from the French doors in the kitchen.   Enjoy a morning coffee whilst watching the cows wander by on your countryside retreat.

The pond next to the property is naturally sourced from the stream in the upper woods.  The water levels can fluctuate depending on the rainfall, but be sure to look out for wild herons, ducks and kingfishers that like to visit the pond during their travels. Children MUST be always supervised.

This countryside retreat offers a lot to explore on the doorstep.  There are several local walks to enjoy (don’t forget your wellies).  The local pub is just a couple of miles away along with a convenience shop and local fuel garage. The towns of Dartmouth and Salcombe are a twenty-minute drive away, and the nearest beaches are Slapton Sands and Blackpool Sands, a nine- and ten-mile drive respectively.

If you want to explore more of nature, head up to Dartmoor National Park or onto the South West Coast Path.

At dusk and dawn, keep an eye out for deer in the steep fields and barn owls that occasionally nest in the cider barn. During the summer months, buzzards’ nest in the valley and dozens of swallows that swoop through fields before having a good natter on the telegraph line (we counted sixty-seven on the line last year!)

Originally, The Cartshed was where the horse-drawn carts and machinery were stored. Opposite the countryside retreat is the cider barn, which was used to house a very large apple crusher and press to make cider and stable the farm horses. If you’re here in autumn, you’re welcome to help yourself to the apples and blackberries that fall from the trees!

Please Note: The Farm has an abundance of natural wildlife, which is what makes this countryside retreat so special. The owners’ birds Kath & Kim the peahens, Rex the chicken (sadly, we lost Camilla to Mr Fox), and Effy the black Pollie dog are all very friendly and will like to say hello, but the owners will do their best to minimise their visits. There are also two new additions to the family, Muffin and Sheeba the rescue cats, both are very shy and like to stay in the farmhouse. The animals are not allowed in The Cartshed to avoid any issues with guests with pet allergies.

"Everything about the cart shed was perfect, lovely view, very peaceful just what we needed, I would definitely recommend to anyone wanting peace and quiet, but still within reach of beautiful beaches for days exploring."

Carolle, July 23


"Our first family holiday with our 11 month old son and we couldn’t have asked for a better place to stay. We brought our own travel cot and high chair with us but the space was perfect for him to roam around and lots of outdoor space too. Spotlessly clean when we arrived and a lovely host. We will definitely be back!"

Megan, June 23
