Located less than a mile from the town of Modbury with its lovely independent shops and eateries, Chatwell Farm is nestled amidst 5 acres of the most beautiful meadows with babbling stream, private freshwater supply, and surrounding fields tended to by the owners next door, which are harvested for hay when the sun shines each July.
