Sandwell Manor is an elegant Georgian property in the heart of the South Hams, catering for 7-16 guests. Perfect for groups of family or friends to relax and create lasting memories
Sandwell Manor offers a rare opportunity for self-catering groups of family and friends of 7-16 to 'get away from it all' in a gorgeous Devon country setting. An elegant south-facing Georgian manor house, it offers large, comfortable living spaces and accommodation by way of 6 double bedrooms with 1 twin bedroom with stunning views over the secluded valley and the use of extensive grounds.
We are very child-friendly and welcome up to 3 dogs per group; after all, they are part of the family! The large hallway invites you into the bar, dining room and kitchen. The newly installed kitchen offers beautiful views over the West lawn and the River Harbourne. Just a walk through the adjoining arch, the dining room seats 14-16 comfortably. The bar is a quirky addition for you to enjoy that 'pre and post-dinner drink'. The living room offers plenty of space for everyone to relax together. Meanwhile, the kids/ big kids can enjoy our games room with table football and darts.
The front terrace and lawn are for your exclusive use where children can play safely and also ride their bikes along the private driveway. Adults can try their hand at croquet or boules on the terrace. We also offer tennis on site.
There is so much to see and do! The historic town of Totnes is less than 10 minutes away and beaches and the Dartmoor National Park is only 30 minutes from the house. It takes less than 10 minutes to get to us from the A38 motorway.
Sandwell is a great location and launchpad to enjoy a multitude of leisure pursuits that the South Hams has to offer. We're only 25 minutes from the English Riviera and 30 minutes from Dartmouth and Salcombe. One can enjoy long country walks from the manor without going near the main road and possibly end up at the local 13th century Inn 30 minutes' walk away.
This elegant setting attracts couples planning their quintessential Devon marquee wedding. For wedding inquiries, please contact Kizzy, who will be happy to help, along with any questions about bookings for accommodation.
