Charford Manor is a spacious, light and airy detached house located to the outskirts of the South Hams village of Avonwick that nestles on the banks of the River Avon.  Surrounded by wooded hills and stunning rolling Devon countryside, this charming period property boasts impressive long distance views and is a short drive or leisurely stroll to the village pub and shop. Perfectly designed for gatherings of friends and family, Charford Manor boasts two spacious reception rooms both with wood burning stoves as well as generous sized bedrooms, three bathrooms and a sizeable garden with a terrace which is perfect for al fresco dining.  It is a naturally light property where sunlight streams through the south facing windows, and having recently undergone sympathetic refurbishment, it is assured that the property won’t fail to delight.  The welcoming but discreet owners live within the rear wing of the house with a separate entrance and garden which assures guests their privacy.

Avonwick is most conveniently located for exploring Devon’s countryside, coastline as well as being a stone’s throw from the majestic Dartmoor National Park with unsurpassed walking opportunities. Popular sandy and surfing beaches across the South Hams and English Riviera are easily accessible as is the bohemian market town of Totnes which is only 5 miles away and offers boutique shopping as well as boat trips down the River Dart to Dartmouth.  Being just two miles from the A38 which is the main artery for exploring the whole of Devon and Cornwall, guests will be spoilt for choice of days out if they can be persuaded to the leave Charford Manor.

A beautiful cottage and would definitely be looking at returning.

September 2018

Absolutely gorgeous huge garden and outlook. Lovely big house with everything you need.

July 2018

We really enjoyed the property and the location. The countryside and the views were spectacular and we were treated to various sightings of the local barn owl! The property was gorgeous with room for our extended family and we spent a good deal of time in the lovely private garden. Simone and Dave were super hosts and the house had everything we could have wanted. It was useful to be in striking distance of Totnes as some of our party arrived and departed by the train. All in all a splendid holiday. Thank you Toad Hall for our (we reckon) 14th year of super summer holidays in the South Hams.

July 2018

Simone and David were great hosts, always personable and nothing was too much trouble. It was great being Lord and Lady of the Manor, if only briefly! We had wonderful views, great weather and were away from the crowds, I know, I can be anti social! I'll be ringing Monday 16-07-18 to see if we can sort out next year!

May 2018

Dave and Simone run a fantastic house, very clean and tidy, fully equipped with lovely well appointed rooms and well manicured grounds. They gave advice when sought and told us when the wild deer were about the fields.

May 2018

Yes thoroughly enjoyed our holiday at this property, we find the location very central for exploring different areas, beach, moor, towns even into Cornwall. It is so peaceful there and we feel relaxed as soon as we arrive. So much space for all the family. It was our third year & we intend returning next year. Simone & Dave are perfect hosts, always on hand for any advice.

April 2018

We loved rural location but would not suit most, as limited walking opportunities and you had to use cars all the time.

August 2017

The cottage was fine - just found it a little isolated

April 2017

Beautiful place and lovely location. The booking was made quickly and Toad Hall were very helpful with the booking process.

February 2017

Charford Manor is in a gorgeous rural setting. When you step out into the garden it feels as though you are in the middle of the countryside.

June 2016
