A couple of years ago we rented Lincombe farm. It's not actually a working farm any more as they've sold off the land, but it is a wonderful house in a beautiful, tranquil setting.
Lincombe is on the left, just before Salcombe as you come in from Marlborough and there is a boatyard down in Lincombe creek. There is a pontoon which dries out to extensive mud and a slipway but the access lanes are very narrow. These should be OK for a 5m rib as long as you don't have to reverse !
The house is beautifully furnished and has an extensive library of military & naval history (The owner is ex-RN) Huge rustic type kitchen with an Aga and at least 4 bedrooms, maybe 5 (Can't remember, ain't that sad)
From memory, (again very poor) rent was around £ 1,400 per week and imho the house is big enough to comfortably accommodate two families.
Used to cycle up the steep hill and out onto Snapes Point early in the morning with the dog for fabulous views down the estuary, while the fishermen were just setting out for their day's endeavours from Batson. The dog had the time of his life and would love to go back !
Don't know if the owners are planning to rent in 2005, but I do have contact details if anybody is seriously interested.
