Interaction with guests
We like to welcome guests personally on arrival, show them in, and give a brief introduction to the farm and the area. After that, guests are left to their own devices, but we are never far away when needed, and can be found either in the Farmhouse, or about the place, tending to the livestock and carrying our our duties. We are always happy to recommend a walk to suit your level of adventurousness, a beach appropriate to the prevailing tide or wind direction, or a place to eat commensurate with your appetite and wallet!

I went to Cotmore Farm with my wife, mother and 3-year-old boy for a long weekend. Exeter was frightfully crowded when our train arrived, but over the phone Piers (the farm's owner) went out of his way to help us get find a rental car,...More

About the neighbourhood
Many miles of safe, award-winning beaches offer swimming, rockpooling, and sunbathing opportunities, while watersports - particularly surfing, windsurfing, sailing, waterskiing and parasailing - are popular and widely available. There are facilities for golf, sailing, horseriding, tennis, and river- and sea fishing all within 30 minutes' drive of the property.

Walkers and their dogs will appreciate the attractions of miles of quiet lanes, footpaths, bridleways, and the renowned South Devon Coast Path, while stargazers will glory in the complete absence of artificial light, which makes the Milky Way regularly visible with the naked eye. The area is hugely popular with birdwatchers: Start Point is on a major migration route, Slapton Ley is an overwintering spot for rare overseas visitor...

How to get there
Airport: Exeter: 70.0 km
Railway: Totnes: 25.0 km
Ferry: Plymouth: 48.0 km
From Kingsbridge follow the A379 towards Dartmouth. At Carehouse Cross mini-roundabout in Stokenham take the third exit towards Beesands, Prawle, and East Portlemouth. Follow this road for a mile or so as it bears sharp right. After cresting the hill you will see on the right-hand side Cotmore House, followed by Restcot, and Old Cotmore Farm; ignore them all. Continue for about 200 metres until you reach a small, unsigned lane on the right – take this turning (if you reach Beeson Pool Cross on the left, you’ve missed it). A few hundred metres along this lane, a hanging sign on your right marks the entrance to the farm. At the top of the drive keep straight ahead up the slope for The Barn: the garden entrance is at the end of the car park.
