A rural retreat with spectacular views over rolling hills and Devonshire fields with views stretching far beyond and reaching Dartmoor.
If you’re planning your next family adventure or perhaps a special celebration with friends, have a look at this beautiful cottage located 8 miles out of Exeter. Adjoining the owner’s Grade II listed thatched farmhouse, it offers a taste of traditional country life while providing everything you need for a trip away. Drink in the sublime views of the nearby village of Stockleigh Pomeroy while enjoying an al fresco lunch on the patio or get the sun loungers out on sunny days and relax in the garden, surrounded by pretty open meadows and fields.
Wherever you are in this house, you will get a taste of country living. Whether rustling up a warming meal in the open-plan kitchen/lounge/diner, spending a relaxed afternoon next to the wood burner or gazing through the French doors out to the countryside beyond, you’ll feel relaxed. Guests can explore much of the 9 acres, walking around the farm and meeting the animals, and children have a play area, doll’s house and sandpit to keep them busy.
The local farm shop and coffee shop are only 1 mile away, a tempting treat on mornings when a lie-in demands a quick brunch. Slightly further at 4 miles is the historic market town of Crediton which offers more shops and places to eat and Exeter (8 miles) is a must-see, with its stunning Gothic cathedral, theatres and museums. Walkers should head to the vast moorland of Dartmoor National Park (15 miles), one of the last remaining wildernesses in the UK.
