This pretty property nestles next to the owners’ home in a lovely rural setting punctuated by farms and country lanes, has been decorated in a country style, and provides a perfect couples retreat.

Experience true country life from the comfort of this beautiful chocolate-box cottage, nestled in a perfect rural location. Conveniently situated for exploring the heart of Devon, venture to the market town of Tiverton (9 miles away), or stroll through the picturesque villages studded throughout the stunning landscape. Weary from your adventures, pour yourself a glass of something special at the dining table while reminiscing about your day. Later, retreat outside for an evening of stargazing by candlelight, toasting marshmallows on the BBQ.

Adjoining the owner’s home, this homely property is decorated throughout in a rustic style complete with exposed beams. The open-plan living space is brought to life by cosy decor and soft furnishings, featuring a country cottage-style kitchen that is well-equipped for preparing delicious dinners. Perch at the table for tea and cake, or stretch out on the sofa in front of the television. Upstairs, choose from an invigorating shower in the en-suite or a bubble bath in the stylish bathroom. Settle for an early night snuggled in the double bed, or head outside via a set of stairs for a nightcap on the private patio overlooking the shared lawn.

With excellent transport links at your disposal, fill your itinerary with adventures near and far, from exploring the 15th-century chapel in nearby Ayshford (3.5 miles away), to the cathedral city of Exeter (24 miles away). There are plenty of National Trust properties too, take in the history of Killerton (13.5 miles away), or gothic Knightshayes (10.5 miles away). Steeped in history and heritage, Tiverton is worthy of a day trip at 9 miles, set on the banks of the Great Western Canal.

We have just spent 3 weeks at the Apple Shed Cottage and have had wonderful time. I would certainly recommend it if you want a peaceful time in the country with beautiful views surrounded by farming land and yet easy access to the motorway. The building is a traditional Devon white washed long house and the inside was very roomy, modern, comfortablRead moree and spotless. It was hard to leave. I will miss your cakes and smiles Lucy and of course the three dogs. Thank you. Hide
