Venn Farm is a 70 acre Dorset Sheep farm lying in the glorious South Hams countryside, a unique region which boasts the mildest year-round climate in Britain. Scattered around the owners' farmhouse, the four very comfortable cottages vary from a delightful little 'hideaway' overlooking the duck pond to two adjoining cottages, which can be interconnected to accommodate up to 12 people. With its fishing lake stocked with carp, tench and bream, and acres of farmland to which visitors enjoy access, Venn Farm provides a wonderfully relaxing holiday retreat, yet is only two miles from good roads that make it easy to explore further afield.
The delightful little Georgian town of Modbury, with its specialist and antique shops and splendid inns, is under 5 miles, whilst nearby is Ivybridge, known as the southern gateway to Dartmoor, offers excellent sports facilities, an indoor pool and a renowned garden centre. Superb sandy beaches at Mothecombe and Bigbury-on-Sea, and a variety of watersports at the picturesque twin villages of Newton Ferrers and Noss Mayo are all within about half an hour's drive. Just 16 miles away, Plymouth's Aquarium and wealth of city amenities, including cinema, theatre and a dry ski slope, are easily accessible, and the Eden Project (about 1¼ hours by car) makes a fascinating day out. Burgh Island, of Agatha Christie fame, and the National Trust properties of Saltram House and Coleton Fishacre are also within easy reach. Dartmoor's scenic beauty and the spectacular coastline afford splendid walking opportunities. Closer to home, good walking, riding and golf can be enjoyed locally, there are two village pubs within ¾ mile and the nearest shop is in Wrangaton 2 miles.
The friendly owners welcome disabled visitors and have ensured that three cottages are suitable for wheelchair access and have level entry showers (a shower chair is available).
