    “Had a great week, cottage was lovely, the views amazing and so peaceful.”

    We found out later that the cottages were fully booked, yet it was so peaceful. The pool was a great plus, definitely want to go back

The property

In a peaceful and secluded setting, a mile from Halwell and 1½ from Harbertonford (PO/shop, pub), two cottages and three superb barn conversions at Bickleigh Farm, all sharing an indoor heated swimming pool (39' x 19' x 3' to 4'6" deep, available 8am to 8pm, occasionally also used by owners' family and friends) with toddlers' splash pool, children's play area (swings, slides, climbing frame), large trampoline and games room (pool table, table tennis, WiFi).

All are on a 300 acre working mixed farm (often lambs, calves and kittens).

Conservation walks with wonderful views to Torbay and Dartmoor have been laid out across the farmland and the properties are positioned to each have their own patio and barbecue area, and share large lawns and garden.

Professional catering available.

These are very special places to stay.

East Bickleigh (976183) and Oak Tree are the two comfortable and very attractive cottages on the same farm, converted from a 17th century farmhouse.

They share the indoor heated swimming pool, children's play area, trampoline and games room with Swallows Reach 976144, The Roundhouse 976196, The Haybarn 976197 and each has its own patio.

If booked together, Oak Tree Cottage and East Bickleigh have interconnecting doors; and the dining area in one cottage can seat 12 people - useful for one large party.

Many original features have been kept: beams, exposed stone, sash windows and large fireplaces.

Oak Tree has living room with TV/DVD, woodburner and beams, leading to conservatory with cane furniture.

Kitchen/dining room (dishwasher, washer-drier, microwave, freezer, larder fridge, gas hob/electric oven).

Upstairs (stairgates), two bedrooms - a double (5' four-poster bed) with exposed stone and woodwork, lovely views down the valley and en suite bathroom (suite plus hand-shower), and a twin.

Shower-room (suite).

Outside, a sitting-out area (table/chairs, barbecue).
