Upscale romantic retreat in delightful gardens with rural views
Umber House, Harbourneford is a delightful one bedroom barn conversion surrounded by colourful gardens. All on one level, it's an idyllic couples' retreat. The cosy sitting room with logburner will be a welcome sight in all seasons along with the stylish kitchen with high-top breakfast bar. Sleep well in the king-size bedroom and enjoy the luxury amenities in the bathroom. Enjoy the beautiful gardens and rural scenery surrounding the cottage, either through the French doors or from the sitting area on the paved terrace.
Take a bottle of local bubbly from Sharpham Winery down to the pond. Relax with nothing more demanding to do than watch dragonflies flitting across the water.
Umber House, Harbourneford makes the perfect base for walks on Dartmoor right from the door. Pick up provisions in South Brent (two miles away) and book a table at one of three topnotch restaurants in the area for a treat. Buckfast Abbey, still a working monastery, is a serene place to visit five miles away, just outside the pretty village of Buckfastleigh. From there, hop aboard the steam train to historic Totnes through the breathtaking Dart Valley countryside. Go hiking on Dartmoor, stop for cream teas in a Chagford or spend the day in Plymouth exploring the Barbican with its boat trips and National Marine Aquarium.
