A pretty first floor apartment set in the stunning South Hams which is close to both the beach and the rugged Dartmoor landscape.

The South Hams offer everything and more on a holiday to Devon. Whether you want to explore rugged Dartmoor or amble along the coast path on the stunning south coast, you are spoilt for choice. Close to the apartment is pretty East Prawle, which has access to small hidden coves down rickety coast paths and famous pub, The Pig’s Nose, which has regular live music events and serves up excellent food in a cosy pub atmosphere. You are also based in an excellent location to explore the town of Totnes and maritime city, Plymouth, where there are a range of independent eateries, good shopping and a range of bars.

This charming and inviting apartment, which is on the first floor of a large country house, has a mixture of slate and wooden floors and offers two bedrooms. One double with a four-poster bed and one single room.  The family bathroom has a shower over bath and WC and the lounge/diner/kitchen has a TV & DVD. The spacious kitchen, which leads off from the lounge and dining areas, has an electric oven and hob for cooking up a storm along with a fridge/freezer and microwave. A shared laundry room is also available for all guests.

Outside, there is an enclosed walled shared garden area which is accessed through a gate and across a quiet and narrow road. There is also a rambling footpath which will lead guests to the seaside at Lannacombe Beach - this is a 30 minute walk away or a 5 minute drive but with limited parking when you get there.  There is ample off-road parking available.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

This is a lovely property set in an idyllic location. The owners couldnt be more welcoming and helpful. The surrounding area is absolutely stunning. The lanes are narrow but other drivers are by and large very courteous.

A good place out in the country for walking. However, no pubs nearby in walking distance so when going out in the evening for a meal we always had to use the car.

Apartment is clean and well equipped, owners are very welcoming and helpful. It is in an isolated location down very narrow lanes, although the area is very lovely. We had good weather so plenty of walking and would happily return.

Lovely apartment, very clean, well set out and comfortable. So impressed with all the extras - hairdryer, iron and ironing board for example and well stocked with necessities - toilet paper, kitchen towel, cling film, foil, bin bags, kitchen cloths, tea towels etc. And a small jug of pretty freshly cut sweet peas from the garden. The garden was lovRead moreely, enjoy a glass of wine under the apple tree. Gorgeous views. A quiet and isolated spot so not for everyone - we loved it. Hide

For the second time we had a lovely stay at Ferndale House, and will be going again. Its great for my needs as a small family (1 child) and Clare and Johnnie are the most friendly and welcoming couple.

Lovely, comfortable place with friendly hosts and some gorgeous coastline not far away.

Reviewed by Graham, 17th May 2019

Very good for walking, but if driving the narrow roads take a bit of getting used to. Might be a bit too isolated for some.

Reviewed by Tom, 10th April 2019

The hosts, Johnie and Clare, are two of the most lovely people you could ever hope to meet. Nothing is ever too much for them and we would go back to this lovely house just to see them again! The location and house are beautiful. Only thing I would say is not to try and push a buggy up the nearby hill walk....possibly the biggest mistake of my lifeRead more! Go to the beach instead! Would thoroughly recommend staying at this fantastic place! Hide
