Holiday Cottages

holiday for your family


What a wonderful place, Little Fingerling and gardens are lovely. Startpoint beach was quiet and unspoilt, East Portlemouth gives lovely views over Salcombe with beautiful beaches and hidden coves round the costal path. It’s a lovely walk into Dartmouth too, this has been a welcome break from home.

Came to have quality family time before my brother has a serious operation. What a beautiful place, so quiet and peaceful place just what the doctor ordered. We had a brilliant time a briefly forgot our problems, we will always remember Valley Springs.

"We returned home last night after a very enjoyable stay in Fingerling Barn - the accommodation is very good quality, clean, spacious and well-maintained having being recently refurbished.

The setting of the barn is very tranquil, with a nearby pond containing ducks and moorhen. We enjoyed eating out on the patio and here our children enjoyed daily visits by a nearby resident's friendly Spaniel called Megan!

The owners of Fingerling Barn have provided a very useful and comprehensive guide to the local area which includes photos and descriptions of the local beaches, walks, activities etc.

One of the walks described in the house guide was a coastal walk at East Prawle and we'd recommend this walk for the fine views.

We are beginner surfers and we tried our hand at surfing at Bantham with a two hour lesson with Bantham Surfing Academy. We thought that the instructor, Dave, was excellent and very encouraging to us novices!

We also played golf at the 9 hole courses at Thurlestone Hotel and at Dartmouth. The afternoon rates during the week at Dartmouth were good value for money - £20 for the the 18 hole course and £12 for the 9 hole which includes a couple of par 5s.

All in all, we'd recommend Fingerling Barn as a holiday destination in a very attractive area of Devon."

"Our stay at Fingerling Barn was wonderful. The setting in which the Barn sits is breathtaking and the accommodation is to a very high standard and everything that you required in the kitchen was there, even down to a lemon squeezer. It was great being able to sit down as a family and enjoy our meals at the huge table in the dining room, there was so much space for all of us. We were greeted by the owners on our arrival who were down doing some gardening. They were very helpful and ensured that we were ok before they left. We would recommend this holiday to everyone and wished that we had booked 2 weeks instead of 1.
