It is reputed that in days gone by, a light was placed in the window of Lower Manor Farm as a signal to the waiting smugglers in the cove that all was well and the booty could come ashore! The owners of Lower Manor still carry on the tradition but without the expectation of barrels of brandy! Guests to Lower Manor Farm will enjoy the benefits of staying in a large, rambling family house with its origins in the 13th Century whilst appreciating that this is a rustic 3 star property providing a practical venue for larger groups with the emphasis on relaxing and having fun. Idyllically located in a peaceful valley on the edge of the village of Ringmore the farmhouse is just 10 minutes’ walk through National Trust land to Ayrmer Cove. The beach can only be reached by footpaths or boats, so is never crowded, and for enthusiastic walkers there are miles of fantastic coastal paths directly accessible from the property. This unusual house has a large garden with views to the sea and benefits from a huge games barn, a great spot for some competitive games whatever the weather.
