We are joining forces again with the extremely lovely Clare from Her on a Hill, for a brand new holiday, based in the South Hams area of Devon.

With a strong rural and maritime heritage, the South Hams is noted for its beautiful landscape, quality local food, culture and scenic beaches. The South Hams is a region of rural and coastal Devon much of which is designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, stretching as far as the edges of Dartmoor National Park and featuring one of the most beautiful stretches of coastline in the UK.

Based at the gorgeous Dartington Hall, just outside the eclectic market town of Totnes, we are perfectly placed for walks on the Moor, along the River Dart, and on the south coast. The itinerary is still in the planning stages but here are some ideas of places the walks might visit:

Greenaway House, previously the home of Agatha Christie

Historical Dartmouth

The busy fishing port of Brixham

Eclectic Totnes

A steam train journey, or a boat down the River Dart

A climb up to Brent Moor and the Avon Dam Reservoir in the south of Dartmoor

Part of the John Musgrove Heritage Trail

Explore the Grade II listed gardens of Dartington Hall itself

Based on 1,200 acres of beautiful parkland outside Totnes in South Devon, the Dartington Estate is a historic visitor destination, events venue and thriving community of businesses, colleges and more. The group of late 14th century buildings are Grade I listed, and are grouped around a huge courtyard; the west range of the courtyard is regarded nationally as one of the most notable examples of a range of medieval lodgings. We have reserved a mixture of single rooms and double rooms for single occupancy (or sharing of course). All meals will be included in the cost of the holiday, and will be taken on site.
