Sherrill Farm Holiday Cottages is a delightful complex of 13 delightful cottages set within 16 acres of farmland. Converted from the original 300 year old barns and farmhouse the cottages are clustered around the central courtyard. The cottages retain many original features and are charmingly furnished and decorated, with well-equipped kitchens and pretty bedrooms. Located midway between Tavistock and Launceston on the Devon and Cornwall border it is the perfect spot to relax and unwind, or to use as a base for exploring the region.
Approached by its own private driveway, the whole farm is set away from any busy roads, and is surrounded by fields. All the cottages at Sherrill Farm have use of the large indoor heated swimming pool, Jacuzzi, gymnasium, bowling alley and large games room. This large leisure complex is open daily until 9pm. After an energetic swim you can step out onto the surrounding sun terrace and enjoy the stunning south-facing views, whilst the children keep themselves entertained in their own play area. There is also an all-weather tennis court available and rackets can be hired on site (correct tennis shoes must be worn). This really is the perfect holiday accommodation for families and children of all ages.
There are three ponds within the grounds, one has been especially created to encourage wildlife and is set in beautiful surroundings. The other 2 ponds have been stocked with fish for those wishing to try their hand at this relaxing pastime (rods can be hired on site). Many bird species can be seen in the area as it is so quiet here and foxes and badgers are often seen on summer evenings. There is also a picnic area and summerhouse along the banks of the ponds. Sherrill Farm really is a beautiful place offering peace and tranquillity.
A short drive away is the beautiful Tamar Valley dividing Devon and Cornwall, with picturesque and historical riverside villages such as Morewellham. Within minutes you can be venturing out onto the Dartmoor National Park with over 250,000 acres of wild rugged open moorland, this is a haven for hikers or dog walkers. There are many exciting places to visit including Morwellham Quay and the National Trust properties of Cotehele, Buckland Abbey and Lydford George with its White Lady Waterfall. The historic market town of Tavistock is just 6 miles away and is a popular town with indoor pannier market and local shops selling locally produced foods. Horse riding is also available locally, as is trout fishing. Why not try canoeing on the River Tamar, or perhaps cycling on the Plym Valley track. The north and south coasts of both Devon and Cornwall are within easy reach by car and offer an amazing choice of splendid sandy beaches, a variety of water-sports, cliff top walks, swimming, surfing and other seaside activities.
