Do give us a call if you fancy a last minute holiday. 01803 722398.

Little jewels appearing in our garden!

Our first brave daffodils

"I wonder what spendthrift chose to spill
Such a bright gold under my windowsill?
Is it fair gold, does it glitter still?
Bless me! It's a daffodil!"

Isn't this lovely - Richard was in the right spot to capture the Folly under a double rainbow (you have to squint a bit!).

She asked for a broomstick - is this really the best we could do? Pumpkin looks great though!

Hiding from the real world!

Reading at the Folly

The Folly is full of books and where better to retreat for a peaceful moment or two, a little quiet contemplation and some quality Me Time?

Beach Picnic Last year

Digging for treasure

This time last year Richard and our lovely guests were digging for treasure on the beach - today there is as much water in the garden as out at sea!

A holy tennis net!

Anchorstone at Sharpham

Sharpham Vineyard Cafe

We're thrilled that our friends Clare, Jasmine and Will have taken over at Sharpham Vineyard Cafe and will be taking our boat up there on the tide for Sunday lunch. Looking forward to the fresh fish, mussels, crab or lobster with maybe just a little Sharpham cheese and wine on the side!

Book now!

Balcony Suite

Welcome to the new Fingals cottages website. Our apartments are quirky, very comfotable, unique. Built round the central attraction of a beautiful grass tennis court and lush garden in a sheltered, valley close to the Dart river.

Each is highly individualistic and completely different and can accommodate anything from 2 - 6 people but also larger groups who want to be close but not on top of each other, who can then share the communal space.

Included in the price are a conservatory housed swimming pool, sauna and gym. Also on site is a sociable bar and communal sitting room in the old manor farmhouse, where there is a pop-up restaurant twice a week.

For booking dates please call us on 01803 722398.
