Youngcombe is a unique and completely tranquil spot, tucked deep in the countryside, only a mile from the main Kingsbridge/Salcombe road with easy access to Kingsbridge (2 miles), Salcombe (5 miles) and the glorious South Devon beaches at Thurlestone (3 miles).  This early Victorian farmhouse is very much a home from home property with every comfort provided and has a welcoming family atmosphere with good sized rooms, all extremely comfortably and attractively furnished including some lovely furniture and pictures. A charming, quiet and very rural retreat with spacious gardens and a local footpath close by that leads to Woolston and Salcombe. Originally the farmhouse of the land surrounding the property, the house, now owned separately, still feels very much part of the farm with the stables and courtyard just opposite. The farmland is grazed by dairy, beef cattle and sheep.

Attractive, newly fitted farmhouse kitchen with large pine table seating 8, pretty painted shelves and cupboards, superb Rangemanster cooker with double oven, grill and hob, fridge, microwave, dishwasher and TV. Central hall with glazed door into the garden.

Youngcombe is so special. This was the second time we'd stayed there. It is completely remote and very quiet. We love the long drive down the track and the house is beautiful. Ticked all our boxes and we even got perfect sunshine!
