This unique and romantic home-from-home is a real gem. Located in one of the most peaceful and tranquil environments, The Folly is a charming all year round holiday retreat and truly unique. Its style and eccentricity will enhance your holiday experience, making The Folly the perfect place for relaxing, unwinding and really spoiling yourself. The bedroom certainly echoes a feeling of wow! With a large sumptuous bed, a roll-top bath and separate shower-room, and the real treat being the balcony doors which lead out onto the decking overhanging the stream. Sit back on the carefully positioned boat seat, and relax listening to the brook babble by, perfect! Or perhaps take a seat on the first floor balcony which leads out from the living-room; with a glass of something tasty in hand, sit back and watch the evening close in whilst watching a game of tennis on the grass tennis court. The Folly is one of five self-catering properties within this complex; all of which are very individual and sit within the most lovingly maintained shared grounds and gardens. For your extra entertainment, there is an indoor swimming pool with sauna room, a games-room with a snooker table, table football and a table-tennis table on the patio. There is certainly plenty to keep you entertained amongst these shared facilities. However, you are only a short walk from the very pretty villages nearby; Dittisham and Cornworthy are both worth a visit on a sunny day. Or hop in the car and head to the famous naval town of Dartmouth which boasts spectacular views, a hive of activity and a fantastic collection of cafes, restaurants and bars.
Perhaps you fancy a day on the beach? If so, only eight miles away you will find the very popular Blue Flag beach of Blackpool Sands – a fantastic day out for all the family offering kayaking, body boarding and paddle boarding with all the equipment supplied at a small charge. There’s also a cafe and beach shop, so why don’t you have a bite to eat before heading home – a great way to finish a fabulous family day. The location of The Folly gives you an endless range of activities and sights to see and enjoy.

This stunning area is a joy to journey through, even by car! Travelling by bus, boat and steam train is even more of a pleasure. With endless tours running throughout this beautiful countryside, take a day trip by one or all of these methods of travel and you will be treated to sights and views which will remain treasured until you return again.
