Lower Collaton Farm Holiday Cottages offer three lovely self catering cottages on a traditional old Devonshire farm, nestled in the quiet valley of the River Gara. Set in the heart of peaceful countryside it is a small working sheep farm surrounded by rolling hills where sheep and cattle graze. Perfectly placed in an Area of Great Landscape Value in the heart of the South Hams, Lower Collaton is just six miles from the coast, Dartmouth, Totnes and Kingsbridge. The gardens of Agatha Christie's Greenaway on the River Dart and the D'Oyle Carte's Collaton Fishacre (both National Trust) are close by. Walkers can trek from Collaton or take a short drive to Dartmoor or the South Devon Coastal Path. If you are planning holidays in Devon there's nothing better than a Devon farm holiday!
The Byre is a large, comfortable and spacious self catering cottage, with three en-suite double bedrooms, a fully equipped kitchen, and a large living room with exposed stonework, scissor beams, and an oak dining table with chairs at one end.Up until the 1980's cows were milked here and the upper area was used to store their hay and straw. The names of the cows (Curly I and II, Rosina, Kathy, Bridget etc) were above each manger, and their original plaques now have pride of place on the living room wall.
Like the Stables and Old Granary, this is an 'upside down' house with the living area on the first floor to take advantage of the beautiful south facing Devon views. Outside is a patio with table and chairs, BBQ equipment, a small grassed lawn and parking for two cars.
