    “Just back from celebrating my husband's 50th at Sandwell Manor.”

    An absolutely outstanding house in a beautiful setting. The bar was a great feature, loved the open fires and the bedrooms were very comfortable and thoughtfully presented.

    An absolutely outstanding house in a beautiful setting. The bar was a great feature, loved the open fires and the bedrooms were very comfortable and thoughtfully presented. Loved the welcoming brownies and every need was only a text message away eg extra firewood! One of the best properties we have ever stayed in, just perfect for a big group, family get together. ❤

The property

Tucked away at the end of a Devonshire lane, Sandwell House is the significant portion of an elegant south-facing Georgian Manor House and offers a well thought out and generous space for families and adults alike to come together.

Within just three miles of the historic South Devon market town of Totnes, and in an idyllic spot, the house sits in its own valley at the end of a 350-metre drive, shared with the handful of neighbouring properties with parking for up to 10 cars.

This beautiful house has unhindered views over a level lawn, perfect for croquet, towards the secluded valley and beyond.

With the River Harbourne flowing to the side, this a fine rural yet accessible location for a celebratory gathering of families and friends or simply a holiday for your extended family.

Inside the accommodation is generous with elegant reception spaces downstairs and seven double or twin bedrooms, and seven bath or shower rooms to choose from upstairs.

From the large elegant hallway with baby grand piano, you will find a quirky bar area, great for those evening get-togethers and for aspiring landlords in the party.

Beyond this an elegant sitting room with open fire, TV/DVD followed by a door to utility room, containing a washing machine/tumble-dryer.

Also downstairs is a snug/TV room with comfy seating and toys/games and a downstairs cloakroom.

On the other side of the hallway a large, modern kitchen is well-equipped to cater for larger parties and has views to the side of the house towards the river.

Through the arch a south facing dining room for everyone to gather with seating for up to 16.

Upstairs, the bedrooms are bright and modern; five have stunning views to the south over the valley and all the beds are zip and link, so that you can alter the sleeping arrangement to suit the needs of your group.

Outside, the front terrace and lawn area for your exclusive use and children can play ball games or ride their bikes along the private driveway, whilst you challenge a loved one to a game on tennis on the shared court.

With easy access to fast roads, this is a great base from which to explore the South Hams or Dartmoor National Park.

The nearest pub is less than three miles via road at Dartington or head to Totnes and take a boat trip to Dartmouth or from Kingswear take the steam train to Torbay.

The sandy beach of Bigbury with its iconic island hotel or the private beach of Blackpool Sands are less than half an hour’s drive and there are several family friendly attractions such as Pennywell Farm and Woodlands Adventure Park to keep the young amused.

With so much to see and do, Sandwell Manor is a superb retreat to enjoy at any time of the year.
