Property code: WARRE

This lovingly converted hayloft has been transformed into a cosy cottage, which sets guests in a beautiful part of Devon. Less than a mile from the property is Cockwood Village, where several charming pubs sit right on the harbour and serve local seafood. Keen birdwatchers should head to Dawlish Warren where many rare species can be seen darting through sand dunes, in the estuary and out to sea. A great way to experience the local area is by heading along the Exe Estuary Footpath to Dawlish Warren, Starcross, Exeter and all around the Exe Estuary to Exmouth via Topsham. If you'd like to explore further afield, leave the car and travel by train; the station is only a mile from the property.  Other highlights include Teignmouth, Newton Abbot, Dartmoor, nearby Powderham Castle, Starcross ferry, or local boat trips and estuary cruises.

You will access the first floor open-plan accommodation via external steps and enter into the lounge/kitchen/diner/sleeping area. This has been arranged in a self-contained studio style, benefitting from distant estuary views. The large L shaped room has retained much of its original charm with features such as original beams and exposed stonework. The lounge area offers reclining sofa and armchair, 43" TV/DVD while the kitchen area is well-equipped to make your stay as comfortable as possible. There is an electric oven, hob, fridge with ice-compartment, microwave/combi grill, Nescafe Dolce Gusto coffee machine and a dining table and chairs. A comfortable double bed also features for when you’re ready to relax after a long day of exploring, with an electric heater to warm the room. Just off from this area, there is a separate shower room with WC.

Outside you will have access to a raised decked area with garden furniture and use of the extensive grounds with stunning views over the surrounding countryside and the Exe estuary.

On arrival we were made very welcom with scones, jam and clotted cream. We had to keep our dog on a lead as the farm was not secure and they had cows there, to be aware of. Please note this is not a criticism!! Mainly if visitors have young dogs it is something to be aware of.
