Thank you for your question.
I have found 13 properties that are available for that week and I must
say that it was very difficult. This is not a week of great
availability. I have emailed many others and included ones that are
of unknown availability that I have not received reply from at the end
of my answer. Many others have gotten back to me with unavailability,
but I do not include those here. I'm fully convinced that you will
not find any accommodation meeting your requirements that I have not
Here are properties that are available:
-- A cottage with a garden that sleeps 10
--A farmhouse with a garden that sleeps 10
Buntshill Barns available for all of August

available for all of August.

--This property may be more rustic than posh, but it has its charm.
The Old Bakery
6 Bedroom Rental
Grange Farm Haybarn
Seacrest in Seaview
--Two cottages next to each other that are both available and when
combined, would sleep you and the rest of your guests. I include this
because as you can see, the options are limited for this particular
week. Both have a garden.

any week in August.

every day in August but the week that you would like it.

I'm sorry about the email notifications not working. Hopefully, this
is a temporary issue, but I'm not sure when it will be fixed.
It does seem like nine months is a lot of time in advance, but I guess
most European workers all take holiday in August, so it's not too
surprising that it's booked up. I saw many properties taking
reservations for August 2008 as well!
Here are some more properties that have gotten back to me with whether
they have openings.
Daisy-- Brockley Farms
Daisy does not have its own garden, but it has lots of outside space
for sitting, playing and relaxing.
Nettlecombe Farm-- the Swallow
fully booked for all of August and September
Thank you for the five stars and good luck with your holiday!
