Introduction

Near the end of an ancient Devon lane, on the edge of the tiny hamlet of Lower Broadaford, in the beautiful South Hams (an Area of Great Landscape Value), lies this very attractive converted barn. Arranged as an ‘upside down’ house to take advantage of its setting and retaining some delightful quirkiness, Quither affords peace and tranquility whilst being perfectly placed for the wide variety of activities in the area. The superb South Devon beaches and coastline are close by (Mothecombe at the mouth of the Erme is 6 miles), and Bigbury Bay, with adjoining Bantham Beach, provides one of the finest kitesurfing venues in the country. Lower Broadaford is also right on the southern edge of Dartmoor with Western Beacon just a mile away.

The region is also a cyclist’s paradise; the National Cycling Network affords substantial trails avoiding all main roads, with routes suitable for all abilities. The owners are keen cyclists and the house contains a wealth of information on this and other activities. The area is rich in wonderful walks, rides, and all types of fishing. Nature lovers need look no further than the grounds of the owners’ adjacent farm, a County Wildlife site: follow their footpath by the Ludbrook into Stidston’s Copse, an ancient wood at the end of the wildflower meadows fields or sit and relax by their large wildlife pond.

With its spacious, well-equipped interior and pleasant, private courtyard with “Arctic Spa” hot tub, Quither provides a very relaxing base at the end of a strenuous day’s activity.

Location

What our guests say

Human and pet friendly in fab location with excellent facilities

Beautiful location close to excellent Dartmoor walks and other attractions. Booking was easy and advertising materials very accurate. Owners friendly and helpful. Accommodation clean, comfortable and well laid out. Super pet friendly and safe garden for 3 dogs. Loved the layout of the stepping stones and close proximity to country life, including the Alpacas and cows!! We loved spending time in the hot tub although we did have to clean some 'scum marks' from around the inside surface. The cream tea on arrival was lovely with home-made scones too!! Lovely modern decor in a stone built building. Our stay was amazing and we will always remember it with fondest thoughts. Parking for 3 cars was a bonus. I even remembered some musical notes from many years ago and had a little tinkle on the piano's ivory keys!! Have already shown lots of friends photographs and recommended that they visit!!

A fantastic property

This is a fantastic property that is equipped with absolutely everything you could need including its quirky features. The garden was completely secure for our small dog and bigger than it looks on the photos and the hot tub was a bonus. This is such a picturesque area and Quither makes the most of it. Although you feel like you're in the middle of nowhere you are only a couple of miles from civilisation. It was a pleasure to sit in the main room upstairs and just lose yourself looking out of the windows at the scenery and the Alpacas! Definitely a property I want to return to. The Ship Inn at Ugborough is well worth a visit and the staff are very welcoming. A beautiful little village.

Despite the rain, we had a fabulous week here. We all loved the hot tub and watching the alpacas in the field. We had many days out. The model village in Babbacombe was superb and well worth a visit. We can highly recommend 'The Ivy Fish Bar' in town!

Hatty Owen and family, October 2014

Beautiful house and gorgeous surroundings! The weather was very nice and sunny all week and the hot tub was a lovely surprise. Love the Alpacas! Thank you so much Graham and Sylvia!

The Ball family, July 2014.

Friendly and generous hosts, lovely property in a lovely setting

A perfect place for a family get together and a very practical environment, especially with two dogs. The hot tub was particularly welcome and set a lovely secure garden. Perhaps not ideal for very small children but not a problem for us.

Guest's review on TripAdvisor, July 1 2014. 5 of 5 stars.

Thoroughly enjoyed our weekend in this lovely house. Hot tub fabulous. Everything we wanted. We even played the piano. Great idea having the Bluetooth player
