Welcome to Hidden Valley Holidays....!
Surrounded by its own 62 acres of farmland, orchards and vineyards, Vineyard Cottage is situated in the tranquil Witchcoombe Valley, close to the picturesque market town of Modbury. The sandy beaches of Bantham, Bigbury-on-Sea and Thurlestone are less than 5 miles away, and the nearby natural harbours of Salcombe and the River Yealm offer sheltered waters for sailing and other watersports. Surfing at Bigbury and Bantham is excellent. Coombe Farm has 2 properties available to let; Coombe Farmhouse for up to 12 guests and Vineyard Cottage, a one-bedroom house for 2 guests. During the peak summer holiday season, (mid-July to early September) Vineyard Cottage is only available for rent with Coombe Farmhouse, to ensure privacy for guests who spend much of their time outside in the Courtyard and in the pool. However, for the remainder of the year when guests tend to spend more of their time indoors, Vineyard Cottage is available separately. The property has a south facing aspect, forming part of a sunny and sheltered courtyard overlooking a small stream in the valley below. Vineyard Cottage is a perfect summer holiday location and is also ideal for autumn, winter and spring breaks, with a log fire and cosy accommodation. The location is truly rural, offering complete peace and serenity. The Cottage is not suitable for wheelchair users due to stair access to the bedroom and bathroom. The Farm includes a series of small pastures at the bottom of the valley, through which 2 shallow, clear trout streams run - fun for children to play in, with some adult supervision - the fields are home to a small flock of friendly Grey Faced Dartmoor sheep and a few young Devon Ruby Red and Galloway cows. Behind the barns, up the hillside, we have planted a 150-tree cider apple orchard - all traditional West Country varieties - and 2 vineyards - the first, 6500 Pinot Noir grape vines; the second, 3500 Bacchus vines). The apples and grapes will become commercially productive in 3-4 years' time.
