Holiday Rental House
Our eight peaceful cottages are dotted around our working organic dairy farm, set in unspoilt countryside on the beautiful South Devon coast. As unique in character as they are diverse in style, we have a cottage to suit everybody - offering every accommodation solution from a romantic hideaway for two, to a grand 'gentleman's residence' for fourteen. All our cottages are just a few minutes walk from the coast path and some lovely remote beaches and coves, whilst the wilderness of Dartmoor is only a short drive away. The wonderful Erme estuary and Mothecombe beach, with over 130 acres of sand at low tide, is just a couple of miles away. Explore the nearby picturesque towns of Kingsbridge, Dartmouth and Salcombe or visit the historic port of Plymouth.

Explore the nearby picturesque towns of Kingsbridge, Dartmouth and Salcombe or visit the historic port of Plymouth. Why not visit out of season and cosy down by a roaring log fire, or come and see the lambs in spring? Short breaks available all year. All the cottages have their own large gardens, perfect for children to play in, while the fresh sea air usually means a good night's sleep is in order! There is a lovely wildflower meadow for children and adults alike to enjoy. Complete with apple trees, a hazel copse, living willow sculpture, grassy areas, Alice The Tractor and some children's play equipment, it also marks the start of the new farm wildlife trail! All the cottages are extremely well equipped with Digital widescreen TVs, DVDs, washing machines, dishwashers etc and all have private gardens with table and BBQ. Cots and high chairs available on request. Dogs very welcome in all the cottages except The Beach Hut and The Mews. We put fresh local organic milk in each cottage for guests on arrival. Carswell is also the birthplace of the Well Hung Meat Company so our visitors can taste award winning local organic lamb and beef. Open all year. 8 cottages sleeping from 2 to 14 people.

We spent our mini-moon at the beach hut and it couldn’t have been more perfect. Having a whole cove to yourself, completely cut off from the outside world. You take out the binoculars and even though you can see for miles - you can’t see...More

We're just back from The Mews, a pretty, cosy cottage for 2. It's such a magical place, extremely well designed and very comfortable indeed. There's everything you could need in the cottage, which is open plan both downstairs and upstairs, so it's delightfully light. Leading...More

About the neighbourhood
The farm is in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with an exceptional variety of wildlife and plants, including some extremely rare species that are encouraged because the farm is organic. Carswell is one of the few places in the country where you could spot a cirl bunting and there is a pair of faithful Peregrine Falcons who nest on the cliff here every year. We have an abundance of wildlife - hares, bats and badgers are just a few of the residents you are sure to see, and many more besides. We have barn owls and little owls residing in the old barns behind Lambside House - walk down the farm lane and see if you can see them out hunting. The closest villages to Carswell are Newton Ferrers, Noss Mayo and Holbeton. Noss Mayo and Newton Ferrers are about two miles away, nestled on eac...
How to get there
We are situated about 4 miles off the A379 (the main road between Plymouth and Kingsbridge) on the Holbeton to Noss Mayo/Newton Ferrers coast road. Full directions will be sent out with confirmation of your booking and are needed! If you have lost these then please let me know and I can email them to you.
