Firwood is one of the most wonderful holiday homes. It boasts a very sought-after and unique location and the house itself has everything you need to ensure the perfect holiday for all occasions. This exceptionally grand property has been designed and equipped with great thought and vision to ensure that your stay here is full of fun, games, music and laughter. This beautiful semi-detached house is complemented by its amazing vantage point and the views from your patio are second to none.
Watching the popular steam train from the South Devon Railway chug by is a fabulous spectacle, which makes dining al fresco a real treat. As if the above is not enough to make this the ideal holiday destination, Firwood is centrally located offering you several famous attractions and towns within striking distance (some within walking distance). Ideas and recommendations of what to see and do in the area are listed in the 'read more' section. As there's so much to do in the area the Owners took the decision not to install a television in the house, which has proven to be very popular – give it a try! However, the broadband will stream videos if the children need some entertaining or you need to catch that match! And should you wish to host a 'night at the movies', there is a large projector supplied for your extra enjoyment. This house is truly amazing!
Firwood is located in Maypool, which is such a charming spot, located perfectly to offer both amazing countryside views and easy walkable links to attractions and places such as Agatha Christie's Greenway House and the Greenway Quay, which is where you can take a ferry boat to several equally sought-after locations such as Dittisham, Dartmouth and Totnes. Or take a short car drive to the famous fishing town of Brixham to visit the Golden Hind and enjoy a fabulous helping of cafes, bistros, pubs and delightful restaurants. However, you can't take a trip to Brixham without testing your crabbing skills against the most cunning crabs in the South West – good luck!
Family fun can be found in abundance in all directions. You are within striking distance of several sandy beaches – Broadsands beach offers endless golden sand and a charming cafe, making this a great day out in the sun. So, sit back and relax whilst the younger members of the group paddle, rockpool and play safely in this fabulous spot. Or perhaps a little more action is required for the adrenalin junkies of the group, if so, Blackpool Sands beach is just the ticket. You can try your hand at a spot of kayaking, or maybe even paddle boarding. With all equipment supplied on the beach (for a small charge) it makes for a fun day out for the whole group. Why not finish the perfect day with a spot of food in the licensed Venus Beach Cafe – sounds great doesn't it?
The nearby villages and towns offer the very best in amusements and attractions, complemented by some extremely delectable and award-winning pubs, cafes and restaurants. For seafood lovers the Anchorstone Cafe is the place to go or perhaps a more traditional fish and chips dish from Mitch Tonks Rockfish restaurant is on your to do list. Whichever direction you choose to head in, you will be truly spoilt.
This fabulously friendly house, located in one of the most incredible spots, provides the perfect venue for any special occasion. You and your party cannot fail to have a magical time at Firwood, you won't want to leave!
