Request to Book
In a lush Devonshire valley you will find Fingals – comprising luxury self catering apartments set around a Queen Anne Manor House, with swimming pool, manicured gardens to enjoy outdoor games, and an indoor games room should there be a drop of rain. The babbling brook running nearby and the grass tennis court secure this as one of the most quintessentially English holidays you'll have.

About this place

Best bits

  • The best thing about Fingals is that you can do your own thing – no-one will tell you off!!
  • End each day exhausted by fresh air adventures – and wake up wanting to carry on exploring and having fun.
  • The gardens provide plenty of outdoor space for kids (and their parents) to let off steam, whether with a game of croquet or tennis, or just a spot of hide and seek.

Top tips

  • Bring your wellies if you want to explore the green lanes and streams close by.
  • Don't forget your beach and swimming towels because there are so many places to go for a swim or a surf (plus the on-site swimming pool, open all year round).
  • Tennis rackets are available to borrow - or bring your own if you’ve already been working on your shots.

Fingals is relaxed, unique, refined and most importantly (for us) child, family and dog-friendly.

About the owners

Richard and Sheila Johnston

Listed since April 2009

We are situated far from the madding crowd; this is the place to come for a good old-fashioned family holiday.

Owner recommendations

  • The River Dart is just one mile away and you can take sailing lessons, hire paddle boards or get in a canoe with the whole family and paddle up the river to toast marshmallows over a fire.

  • Crabbing from the pontoon is very satisfying (lots of greedy crabs lurking on the river bed waiting to be fed) and a perfect activity with kids.

  • There are gorgeous beaches aplenty to discover – find secret coves where you might swim with the seals, or go rock pooling.

  • Combine theme-park thrills with animal encounters at Woodlands Family Theme Park, just a 12-minute drive away.

  • Take a ferry across the river to Greenway, where you can visit Agatha Christie's summer house and beautiful gardens.
