    • “The owners, who live on site, were extremely helpful and quite delightful. The whole thing was a very happy experience.”

    Miss Goldsworthy, BOURNE END, October 2018

    • “Lovely space in a converted barn within a beautiful courtyard. Very comfortable accommodation but there were a few niggles with lights not working properly that a bit more attention to detail would sort out - but nothing major. Lovely area well positioned for the coast and excellent walking.”

    Mrs Galpin, Loughborough, September 2018

    • “High quality accommodation, lovely setting. Fantastic for families as on a farm, kids loved it! Truly lovely hosts. Had a great week.”

    Mr Creek, Warwick, August 2018

    • “This is the third time we have stayed at Averton Gifford and have enjoyed ourselves on every occasion. The last time we stayed at the Gallery where we had another enjoyable experience. greeted by fresh scones, clotted cream a bowl of freshly laid eggs and flowers on the table. The surrounding area is very beautiful with sheep, chickens, goats and a peacock. The approach is by a long winding road. Situated near several costal results. I would highly recommend any of these properties.”

    Mrs Hufton, Nottingham, May 2018

    • “This was our second time at the Gallery and even though the weather wasn't as perfect as last year we had just as good a time. The barn is perfectly set up, spotlessly clean and the upside down design works really well with the view from the lounge out on to the garden and the sheep fields. There's plenty of space in the communal grounds to kick a ball around and it was lovely to wander the fields inspecting the lambs! Jo and Nick have created such a lovely place for visitors to really relax and feel welcome. Aveton Gifford is a friendly little village and a great base for exploring the South Hams. There are so many good coastal and country walks to be done, an abundance of good pubs in the surrounding area and Kingsbridge is nearby with great facilities and restaurants, so you really are spoiled for choice if you don't want to venture too far. We still feel like we've not seen everything, so we will no doubt be back again!”

    Mrs Baker, GUILDFORD, April 2018

The Property

A mile from Aveton Gifford, 300 yards down a tree-lined track off a lane, three very special places to stay within handsome former farm buildings: an airy converted barn (L248), a barn converted into a gallery (L191) overlooking meadows and a remarkable Grade II listed former music room (L249). A large, pretty, enclosed suntrap courtyard is shared with the friendly owners. Just outside the courtyard, a lawned walled garden (also enclosed) with camellias, fig and walnut trees, leading to another garden with pond (unfenced) and 6 grassy acres with big wildlife pond (fenced), vast lawn for picnics and croquet, picnic table, benches (terrific long views) and big trees to sit under, inviting you to rest, read or just enjoy the silence and let your mind wander (children should be supervised). Heating by biomass boiler using wood from local, sustainable woodland. Spring water. Arrival after 4pm. A peaceful, curative oasis, good for ‘taking it easy’ The Gallery is an ‘upside down’ cottage, exceptionally well converted by an award-winning architect, with private enclosed garden (table/chairs) at the back, opening to meadow, with the shared grounds and fields beyond for enjoying birdsong and stars. Two steps up to front door. Inside, designed for simplicity and tranquillity, focusing on long, rural views and original paintings. On the first floor (top stairgate), wonderful living room with the views, woodburner, TV/DVD and iPod dock. Roomy kitchen/dining room (dishwasher, washing machine, microwave, fridge-freezer, electric oven/induction hob); big glazed doors to steps down to garden. On the ground floor, two bedrooms looking to the courtyard - a double (6' bed) with en suite shower-room (suite), and a double (5' bed or 2'6" twin) with en suite bathroom (suite, shower over bath). Bright and airy in the summer or cosy as a winter retreat, with wonderful walks from the door and beaches within easy reach.

Aveton Gifford: old village (pub, PO/shop) beside the River Avon where it becomes tidal. Within 5 or 6 miles are several villages (Bigbury, Bantham, Thurlestone) on an excellent and varied stretch of coast: sandy beaches, coves, cliffs, golf courses, the Avon estuary (fishing, birds), pretty thatched-cottage village centres. Kingsbridge, 4 miles.
