Activities available locally include canoeing, fishing, walking and the unusual activity of ’letter boxing’ which is ideal for walkers, and just down the lane carriage driving courses. There are many exciting spots for birdwatchers (including our own resident owls!) and deer watchers. Dartmoor ponies can be found close to the property. The extensive coastline of the south west peninsula offers endless opportunities to enjoy water sports, surfing or just a day at the seaside - all very close by.

From the A38 at Ashburton PEAR TREE junction follow the signs to Princetown and Two Bridges, after 3 miles take a Left turn signed to HOLNE, after a further mile approx. turn Left (Signed) into the village and pass through the village, with the Church House Inn and Church on your right. At the top of a short hill turn right and in approx.150 yards turn left, sign Michelcombe. Ashton Court is 150 yards on the left. There are automatic black wrought iron gates, operated by a switch on the right hand wall; they are self opening and closing.
