The Annexe adjoining the owners’ farmhouse is set in the grounds of Higher Norton Farm which is located in the stunning South Hams countryside yet still only 4 miles from the famous beach and nature reserve at Slapton Sands. The 12 acres of grounds provide plentiful entertainment for adults, kids and dogs alike. For days you wish to leave the peaceful retreat, the beautiful towns of Kingsbridge and Dartmouth are both within 15 minutes drive, with Salcombe and Totnes just a little further. The property is south facing so catches the sun for most of the day and has far reaching views over the countryside towards the sea. It is perfectly suited for couples and small families especially those with lots of dogs or who enjoy exploring the countryside or going on walks. The very friendly and helpful owners on site also provide a welcome pack including a bottle of wine and a selection of goodies.

Property is quite remote and that suited us. The silence was fantastic and the owners were very helpful. Furniture etc is dated but in good order and being dog friendly, it was nice that it didn't smell of dogs.
Rural location many single track roads with passing places but view worth it. Great accommodation well equipped
The hosts were very welcoming and the cottage is situated in a beautiful area. Breeze, the owners dog, was a delight and we enjoyed seeing her each evening when we came home! The cottage is clean, tidy & comfortable and the bottle of wine & bread/jams on arrival were a lovely touch! The only 'complaint' would be that the lane forming the entrance to the farm was very overgrown and could have done with a cut. The owners were cutting it back on our last day so it will be fine for future guests but it would have been nice if it wasn't so overgrown during our stay. All in all though a lovely venue, very welcoming and friendly hosts and a beautiful setting. We would stay again!
The Annexe at Higher Norton is certainly under estimated in all accounts. The location is superb, hospitality is excellent, and although basic in needs of accommodation once you've stayed here you don't realise how fortunate your are to experience the tranquil silence and pollution light free sky at night for star gazing. This is just some of the many advantages.
We have all had a fantastic time. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would love to return next year! We love the South Hams.
Had a fantastic week at The Annexe. It was great to be able to walk the grounds.
Silence is truly golden here! Wonderful weeks holiday with good weather too. Annexe is a relaxing and homely place to stay.
A nice relaxing week. The Annexe was perfect for us with beautiful views. Isla loved Breeze the dog!
The Annexe at Higher Norton is a perfect location to stay. You are at the centre of a hub and everything around you is not to far away (Seriously). Forget flashy seaside holiday lets, if you want something different this is the place to stay. How many places do you go to and open the curtains in the morning and pheasants are there starring at you not to mention all the other birds and wildlife some of which I've never seen before. Brilliant location and scenery with the basics, just what you need for anybody young or old.
