Access Statement

I would like to introduce you to our award winning Non-Smoking Establishment. We are delighted that we are a 5 Star visit England Establishment, with a Breakfast Award, and we were fortunate to be awarded a Rose of Excellence award in 2016.

We are situated on the edge of the beautiful market Town of Tavistock, which has recently been awarded as one of the most popular places in the country to live , as well as the top market town in 2015. , also winning numerous food awards. Being only a 15 minute drive to the wonderful scenic Dartmoor National Park.

We are a 16th Century Farmhouse, full of character, with many original features retained, with pieces of memorabilia, previously belonging to Tavistock abbey, and connections to Sir Francis Drake.

We are a working beef and sheep farm of approx. 400 acres, rearing 300 cattle, mainly the pedigree South Devon Breed, and approx. 500 sheep. Lambing and calving in the springtime!

Colcharton Farmhouse has been renovated to a high standard, to offer real farmhouse accommodation, specialising in using local produce from Tavistock and local toiletries from Kitts Herbery.

There are 3 ensuite rooms. The Drake room is a very large room, with a super King size bed of 6ft 6ins, ensuite of roll top Bath, shower and all the luxuries to enjoy, whilst this room has lovely views up the garden, and to the countryside beyond.
