BFB's Overview

The 45-acre Flear Estate is a picture-perfect country idyll with the added benefits of a host of the region's best beaches on the doorstep, a magnificent indoor pool & Spa complex, and a giant indoor Playbarn that has mini guests grinning from ear to ear come rain or shine. An acclaimed, and child-friendly, gastro-pub within a pleasant mile or so's walk.


Flear does family rejuvenation to a tee. Whether rambling through the woods, splashing about in the pool, messing about in the Playbarn or down by the stream, or even soaking in the views from the luxurious outdoor hot tub, the hectic pace of 'normal' daily life seems to melt away within a day or two of arrival, and that's before sampling the beauty and massage therapies in The treatment Room, or taking advantage of the local chef-made meal deliveries.


Owners Barney and Camilla are a young couple who have injected fresh energy and investment into Flear and, thanks to first-hand experiences with their own young boys ‘Roo and Percy, they have real insight into what it takes to make a successful break with tots in tow, plus handy tips and advice on exploring the area with little ones.

Accommodation Overview:

Linhay at Flear is a charming and spacious lodge, which sleeps 4 + infants in 1 king and 1 twin bedroom. Set in acres of beautiful country side it benefits from stunning country views along with an endless list of child friendly facilities, including an indoor play area, swimming pool and playground on its surrounding grounds. The lodge's high beamed ceilings and under floor heated stoned floors offer a sense of luxury and space. The lounge is made cosy with its warming log burner and comfy soft furnishings whilst it adjoining kitchen is contemporary finished with granite worktops and a large American style fridge/freezer. At the opposite end of the lounge is a doorway to the master suitewith king sized bed and a family bathroom complete with luxurious double ended bath- the perfect place for frazzled parents to relax!. From the gallery that runs the full length of the cottage is the twin bedroom with its own en-suite showerroom. Outside there is a lovely private garden and terrace which with its pretty views over the meadows beyond is a great spot for alfresco dining during the summer months.

Location Information

Although there's little but tranquil rolling countryside and a family-friendly good food pub within walking distance, Flear is actually pretty well connected, as the pretty market town of Kingsbridge is within 10 minutes drive and has a great range of pubs, shops and bistros.

Highly recommended are the Old Bakery for its rustic chic, family friendly interiors excellent brunch and fabulous Paella nights (Weds) with fine dining on Fri and Sat. Also, the Treehouse for pizza. For a baby-sitting worthy night out try the art deco glamour of the Burgh Island hotel, the Oyster Shack in Salcombe, the Whitehouse in Chillington, Mitch Tonks' (of Fishworks fame) Seahorse or Michelin-star winner John Burton-Race's New Angel in Dartmouth. For chic cocktails and contemporary bistro-fayre try the waterside Wildfire Bistro at Dart Marina, or try its neighbour the Floating Bridge Pub for, reportedly, the best beer-battered fish and chips in Devon!

Kingsbridge is centrally located for exploring South Devon and ideal for those watching their carbon footprint since there's an excellent bus service and a ferry from the quay to the bustling yachting town of Salcombe which, along with some good restaurants (Captain Flint's is recommended for families) and boutiques, has a good beach.

For a spot of true indulgence try a half-day spa session at the small but very luxurious Dart Marina Spa and don't miss Pennywell Farm Park or Paignton Zoological Park, both of which appear to be very well run and have dedicated play areas for pre-schoolers. Blackpool Sands, Conde Nast Traveller readers’ top rated UK family beach, is also nearby and boasts a toddler sandpit area and a quality licensed beach cafe serving healthy organic kids meals, along with local wines and snacks for adults.

Who owns this place?

Flear Farm is family-owned and run by us, Camilla and Barney Fawcett, and assisted by our little boy, Reuben and baby Percy. We have always loved the country and after several years chasing our tails in London, we decided that we wanted us and our children to have greater exposure to nature and a more traditional pace of life.

Barney and Camilla with our boys Roo and Percy

What do they love about it?

Keeping the cottages and the estate looking beautiful has been challenging but very rewarding, and we get a lot of our satisfaction from giving our families a super holiday and seeing them come back again the next year!

What do the kids love about it?

From the moment kids arrive they are enchanted by Flear Farm, most are splashing about in the indoor pool within minutes of arriving!! There is a large indoor play barn equipped with large trampoline, wooden swing set, soft play area and toys galore - perfect for a rainy day! There are acres of outdoor space for children to enjoy together with a Davis cup tennis court, picnic area and pitch and putt and a great BBQUE area which is perfect for balmy summer evening sausage sizzles following a day of building sandcastles on one of the local blue flag beaches! The resident Flear Dartmoor ponies - Yara and Abbie are always more than happy to be fed a tasty tit-bit, and our duck's love attention (and bread) down at the Duck Pond. Swimming lessons can be arranged in advance with the Flear office. A selection of childrens DVD's are also available to borrow when little legs just need some time to relax!
