Escape to a simpler life with Edward

Fountain Violet Farm is located outside the quaint village of Kingswear in quintessential Devon countryside, the ideal base for a family holiday in South Hams. You will be staying with the Jones family, who specialise in beef livestock. Your canvas hideaways are surrounded by stunning sea views of the coastline, the perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of daily life.

The south Devon coast-line and all its charms

If you’re looking for a variety of watersports to do, this is the right place for you. You will be just 15 minutes walk from the tranquility of Mill Bay Cove, where you can swim or take in the sun’s rays. You can also kayak, paddleboard, surf and sail in the nearby River Dart. Just a little further, you absolutely must try the Dartmouth Steam Railway to grab the passenger ferry across to Dartmouth. For a slice of history, head over to the Greenway House and Garden, a 1950’s summer home of the much-loved author Agatha Christie and her family.

What to do at Fountain Violet Farm

Wake up every morning from the cocoon of your comfy beds to the farm’s breathtaking views of the River Dart. Children and adults alike will love wandering through this landscape and taking in the sea air to build up an appetite for a sunset campfire and cook up before retiring to the comfort of your Feather Down beds. Where could you be better placed to enjoy a family holiday in South Hams?

Going without electricity is our greatest luxury

Pizza Night

The farmer will usually fire up the pizza oven during your stay. Everyone gathers round to tell their stories of the day’s adventures and invent pizza toppings you’ll never find on the high street

Ask the farmer

The farm tour is a must if it’s on offer. But you don’t wait till then. The farmer will be delighted to tell you more about what goes on at the farm at any time.

The farm shop

It’s great for the basics and usually even better for local produce and low food miles. And every Feather Down farm shop operates on an honesty basis.

Edward was simply fabulous! His communication, help and friendliness added to our trip. As always, the accommodation was top notch but with the added bonus of the outstanding view and hospitality, we couldn’t have asked for more - ok, maybe less rain!! We travelled with two other families who hadn’t experienced Featherdown before and they are converts! Edward pulled out all the stops to give us access to watching the European Cup final too, and although the result didn’t go England’s way, we will have a memory that will stay with us forever. Thank you Edward, and all at Fountain Violet Farm. We would love to come back!

First class. Fantastic hosts, jaw-dropping view and high quality accommodation. This is one of the prettiest spots I've ever stayed in. The location is great - loads of great day trips nearby and Kingswear is easily accessible on foot. Loads of local beaches too - our toddler particularly liked Broad Sands.

Our 7th Feather Down Farm holiday. A wonderful, relaxing week away with the most incredible unspoilt views. We would love to come back.

This was our 8th Featherdown trip (yes we're fans) and definitely the best view ever and most things to do within walking distance. Dartmouth and Kingswear are picture perfect, the SW coast path is minutes away and the scenery breathtaking. Our welcome on the farm was great and tents brand new, clean and well equipped. All loved visits from farm dogs Willow and Buffy and the few escapologist sheep who agreed this was the field to hang out in.
