South Devon Cottages

Carswell Cottages on the South Devon Coast

Tucked away on the South Devon coast, our six holiday cottages are dotted around our working organic dairy farm and yet only a few minutes’ walk from the coast path and secluded beaches and coves, including our own private cove. The wilderness of Dartmoor is only a short drive away while the wonderful Erme estuary and Mothecombe beach, with over 130 acres of sand at low tide, is just a couple of miles away.

At Carswell Farm we have a cottage to suit everyone – from a romantic hideaway for two, to a grand ‘gentleman’s residence’ for 11/14, ideal for larger groups or family celebrations! 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.

In the heart of the South Hams in Devon, Carswell Farm is surrounded by unspoilt countryside, providing stunning walks that lead to quiet beaches and charming villages. 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 calves in spring? Short breaks available all year.

Short Breaks

Carswell Farm is open all year round and, with so much to offer, it is the perfect place for a short weekend or mid-week break or out-of-season escape.The mild climate here means that it is always possible to enjoy the lovely walks that surround us; there is wildlife to see all year round and the coast has a different face for every season.

We offer short breaks all year round, so even if you can’t escape for a full week, why not just come down for a few days?

Family Friendly

Carswell Farm is a family owned working organic dairy farm with lots of cows, a few sheep and some domestic chickens! The environment here offers the perfect life for children – fresh air, open space and plenty to see that will fire their imaginations. Kids of all ages love our cottages, not just because they have great days out from them – building sandcastles, exploring secluded coves, rock pooling, hiring bikes, adventures in ruined castles, trips on steam trains and ferry boats or a day out at one of our great visitor attractions – but because after they get “home”, there’s still so much to do!

Dog Friendly

We believe the family dog is just that, a member of the family and deserves a holiday too! More information
