Auton Court is a magnificent stone farmhouse set in 3 acres of glorious private grounds. The property nestles in a peaceful valley, just a few minutes’ drive from Kingsbridge with the popular seaside destinations of Salcombe, Hope Cove and Thurlestone all within 5 miles. The house exudes an ambience of relaxation and welcome with comfortable entertaining spaces, a cosy woodburner, a sunny patio overlooking a fully enclosed garden and grounds, large bedrooms with plenty of bathrooms and ample parking. A lovely welcome pack of local goodies and thoughtful touches all combine to ensure that this beautifully presented and well-equipped property is a perfect venue for a large family or friends looking for something a bit special.

Such a beautiful house and grounds, it was so welcoming and had everything for our stay. Rosemary the owner could not do anymore we shall definitely return to her beautiful home.

February 2018

We had a wonderful stay at Auton Court. It’s the perfect location: quiet and peaceful but within easy reach of the main town and surrounding villages. The house is comfortable, well equipped and spacious, and the grounds are lovely and very well kept. Rosemary, the owner, is friendly and super helpful. Highly recommended.

December 2017

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Auton Court. An unexpected bonus was that our grandchildren were able to feed the horses. The barn is set in a beautiful location and full of character.
