This is a marvellous place for a large family or group of friends to spend an unforgettable holiday. A grand and stylish former farmhouse, set in its own grounds about a mile from Coleton Fishacre, Higher Brownstone is an unusual house in an impressive landscape. Located down a quiet country lane and surrounded by fields, this cottage also has its very own level enclosed and private garden. This is no ordinary farmhouse; as in addition to the fabulous garden and countryside views, Higher Brownstone also boasts a billiard room with full-sized billiard table! For those who can tear themselves away from the sheer pleasure of staying somewhere as special as this, the pubs, shops and restaurants of Kingswear, Dartmouth and Totnes offer something for everyone. If this is not enough, the delights of the Dart Estuary and the glorious South Devon coast are also nearby for all to enjoy.
