About Higher Brownstone Farm

With six spacious bedrooms and lots of garden space, this is the perfect place to hold your large group get-together. Set down a quiet country lane and surrounded by fields, its rooms offer countryside views from large Georgian windows. The house even hosts a billiard room with a full-sized billiard table.

Higher Brownstone farm is about a mile from Coleton Fishacre, a 1920s house surrounded by luxuriant gardens. As a guest, you’ll have free access to the estate as well as other National Trust properties along the English Riviera. 

Head to Brixham, Paignton or Torquay for some of the most picturesque seaside settings on the South Devon coast. The Dart Estuary is also nearby, where you can take a ferry ride up to the bustling town of Dartmouth.
