Boasting such an ideal location, only six miles from the breathtaking south Devon coastline, its hilltop location is surrounded by glorious rolling countryside and your very own private outdoor heated swimming pool, what more could you want for that special family getaway!
However you chose to spend your days, whether it be on a nearby sandy beach, enjoying the local hot spots and attractions, or simply spending the day lazing in the sun making the most of your private heated pool, your holiday in Moor-Tang will prove to be exceptionally special.
Dining, playing and relaxing in this beautiful house is such a treat. Moor-Tang has been lovingly furnished to ensure that you enjoy all the style and splendour you should expect from such a grand holiday home. The space and design of this house ensures privacy and space for all. Boasting five spacious bedrooms, two sitting-rooms, and a splendid open plan kitchen and dining area. Dining and playing together is such a treat and retreating to a quiet space is also so easy to do.
After a day of adventure or exploration, returning to this stunning home-from-home is the ideal way to end any day. Perhaps a dip in the heated swimming pool (heated between 14 May and 24 September 2022) before sparking up the barbecue sounds like the perfect plan, or maybe a game of five-a-side on the lawn is the way to go, or maybe just a simple stroll to the local pub is more like it. Whatever you choose to do, this fabulous house and location makes it all so easy and accessible.
South Devon is a fabulous place for a getaway, offering gorgeous beaches, hidden coves, breathtaking views and miles of trails and footpaths just waiting to be discovered. Pull on your walking boots and walk to Denbury Hill Fort, with stunning views and ancient hedges, peace and tranquillity abounds here. Ipplen village has a fascinating history where Roman artifacts have been discovered, or perhaps you'd prefer exploring Orley Woods, with wildlife aplenty and panoramic views across Dartmoor. Golfers will be delighted to hear Dainton Golf Club is just a five minute walk from the house, offering daily membership and a stunning parkland course set in 125 acres of beautiful countryside. Guests at Moor-Tang have the privilege of booking early with the golf club, especially useful during spring and summer when demand is high.
There is simply so much to do and see in this fantastic part of south Devon. The magnificent south Devon coast is under six miles away, boasting beautiful trails and walking paths, sandy and pebble beaches, and numerous hot spots and attractions along the way. Moving away from the sand and sea, perhaps a day trip to the renowned moors of Dartmoor National Park. Witnessing the wild ponies, cows and sheep go about their daily routine is rather magical, which is why a day out on the moors proves such a special and sought-after experience.
Right on your doorstep you have the very popular Fermoy's Garden Centre. An afternoon mooching around this fabulous centre is highly recommended. The farm shop is the perfect spot to collect those treats for tea, finishing your trip off with a traditional cream tea in the delightful cafe.
If you jump in the car and venture slightly further afield, you are within striking distance of many south Devon hotspots, such as the bustling 'fish town' of Brixham, super charming naval town of Dartmouth, or the historic and rather eclectic town of Totnes. All wonderful days out, offering something special for young and old.
A holiday in Devon is not complete without a day or three on one of the many superb south Devon beaches, especially as you have so many to choose from. Beaches nearby include Torquay (known as the English Riviera), the Blue Flag beach of Brixham or the golden sands at Broadsands Beach.
Further afield are the magnificent beaches of Blackpool Sands, Bigbury-on-Sea and Bantham. Water enthusiasts can turn their hand to almost any water sports from these fabulous beaches. From kayaking, surfing and water-skiing to perhaps the more subdued crabbing and rock pooling.
If you enjoy your scenery and history combined, step back in time with a visit to Slapton Sands beach. Famous for its role in the Allied preparations for the D-Day landings, this historic and rather enchanting place has a very moving story to tell, one dating back to 1943 when the allied forces used the area for D-Day landing rehearsals, which sadly saw many lives lost. Gloriously restored and sitting proudly on the edge of the beach, you can still visit and marvel at a Sherman tank which played its own personal part in 'Operation Tiger'.
Moor-Tang and its magical location offers you and your family the most superb holiday combination. From style, grandeur and relaxation, to adventure and action, what are you waiting for!
