Two holiday lets sleeping 4 and 4Bluebell and Orchid are two recently renovated, cosy, well-equipped cottages at Stancombe Manor, an estate of 21 acres set in a quiet valley in South Hams, Devon.
South Hams is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty of rolling hills, coastal walks and both quiet and child-friendly beaches, the nearest being ten minutes drive from Stancombe. There is also a huge variety of other local family friendly attractions.
The excellent facilities at Stancombe ensure a great base for a stay at any time of year; a heated indoor swimming pool and sauna, an oak panelled snooker room with full size table, and a children’s playroom including table tennis and lots of toys.
Outside there is newly resurfaced hard tennis court and children’s play area, plus barbecue areas with wooden tables for alfresco dining. In addition to space for children to run around freely, the grounds are large enough for grown ups to discover tranquil spots to enjoy a good book or just absorb the peace and quiet amidst the woodlands and cider orchards.
Being above one another the two apartments are ideal for extended families, groups, celebrations and reunions that allow time together and space apart.
Sherford, with its beautiful 13th century church and thatched cottages is walking distance and the village of Frogmore, five minutes drive, has a shop/bakery for essentials. The charming estuary town of Kingsbridge is ten minutes away and has the full range of shops, eateries, a weekly farmers market and cinema. There is an Information Centre on the town quay with lovely folks who can help you plan trips out to the myriad of local attractions.
