Welcome to Apple Blossom Coombe. This one-time small holding is a tranquil, sleepy getaway nestled in the heart of the rolling Devonshire countryside. With gorgeous landscapes ranging from woodland, and grassy meadows to fruit trees and even a stream, this is a wonderful spot to really escape it all – a true rural retreat. Comprising of Apple Blossom House, which sleeps six, and an attached cottage, the Gallery, for two, this is fabulous retreat for multi-generational holidays or a group of friends, or a family with accompanying nanny – and it’s also super dog friendly too, with up to three most welcome. Inside each property, the interior designer has thoughtfully created peaceful and luxurious havens filled with charming, original features such as exposed beams, wooden floors, and cosy wood burners. Just three hours from London, Apple Blossom Coombe is perfectly situated to explore the sites of mid Devon such as Dartmoor, Exmoor, the north and south coasts and of course the historic city of Exeter.


Super-snug and relaxed, the pretty living room in the main house has a cosy wood burning stove that will make you want to curl up with a blanket and a mug of hot chocolate, and gaze at the flickering flames all night. Traditional blends effortlessly with deep, uber-comfy Loaf sofas and chairs that are made for relaxing, whilst there's a surround sound cinematic system when you want to listen to your favourite music. In addition, there's a cute Loaf desk and chair for those who just must catch up on some work.

In the cottage, the open-plan living space has bags of cottagey character, with a large four-seater sofa for curling up on, a large, cosy wood burning stove and a gorgeous window seat overlooking the garden.

Both properties boast a 4K HD Smart TV for film nights or catching up with your favourite boxsets.


The country-style kitchen in the main house is fabulously spacious and has everything you'll need to create fantastic feasts. There's a Stoves seven-ring gas range with double oven and a cast iron griddle plate, oak-topped work surfaces, double Belfast sink and cream cupboards contain all the other essential kitchen equipment including the all-important Nespresso coffee machine. There's also a utility room which handily stores the washing machine and tumble dryer. In addition, there's a characterful farm-kitchen style dining table and chairs for mealtimes.

The kitchen in the cottage lies to the back of the open-plan living area and is also fully equipped with everything you need to rustle up feasts (including another Nespresso coffee machine) plus there’s a breakfast bar for meals on the go. There's a lovely round dining table to the side of the kitchen.


In the main house, there are three superb bedrooms to choose from.

The stunning en-suite master bedroom is as pretty as a picture in shades of grey and white, the warm original wooden floor and beams add tons of character whilst you can lie in the super-king-sized bed and gaze out the window to the garden and trees beyond. The second bedroom is just as gorgeous with a French-inspired king-size bed, spacious double wardrobe, and eye-catching finishing touches. The third bedroom is a handy zip-and-link meaning it can either be twin beds (perfect for little ones) or zipped together to make another king-size bed.

The oh-so-romantic bedroom in the cottage is a total dream with vaulted, beamed ceiling, large windows overlooking the grounds and skylights making it a beautifully light, bright, and airy room. The sumptuous super-king bed is extremely comfortable, perfect for long lie-ins.

All beds come swathed in gorgeous bedding and luxurious cushions and throws to ensure a blissful nights' sleep.


In the main house, the master bedroom has an en-suite Fired Earth shower room whilst there's a separate bathroom with a gorgeous, free-standing, rolltop bath and hand-held shower.

In the cottage, the en-suite is a gorgeous wet room with underfloor heating that boasts a double shower with two huge rainfall shower heads. In addition, there's a stunning freestanding bath for two up the wooden stairs on the mezzanine level for long, languorous soaks - blissful!

All bath and shower rooms have a heated rail to keep towels warm and fluffy.

Outdoor space

Lucky, lucky you! The immense grounds reaching 15 acres are yours to explore with wild meadows, a stream and pond, grassy paths and woodland walks. The woods are pungent with wild garlic in spring. As are het fruit trees, pink-tinged in clouds of blossom and laden with fruit in autumn. Little ones and dogs will love exploring this natural playground, whilst it's just perfect for a picnic under the shady boughs of the trees in high summer. In addition, there are barbeques and picnic benches for a spot of alfresco dining. Totally idyllic!


There is plenty of off road, private parking.
