Nestled in gorgeous gardens complete with woodland, grassy meadows, fruit trees and even a stream and pond, this lovely cottage for six lucky people is the perfect country retreat for those wanting lots of outdoor space.

This is the perfect getaway whatever the season, with lots to do on your doorstep when you can bear to leave this stunning home stay which is just 3 hours from London.
Living

Super-snug and relaxed, the pretty living room has a cosy wood burning stove that will make you want to curl up with a blanket with 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 and a 4k HD TV for film nights or when you want to listen to your favourite music. In addition, there's a cute Loaf desk and chair for those who just have to catch up on some work (though we don't recommend it!).

Eating

The country-style kitchen 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 an 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.

Sleeping

There are three superb bedrooms to choose from. The stunning en suite master bedroom is as pretty as a picture in shades of grey, blush pink 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. All beds come swathed in gorgeous bedding and luxurious cushions and throws to ensure a blissful nights' sleep.

Bathing

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. Both have heated rails to keep towels warm and fluffy.

Outdoor space

Lucky, lucky you! The immense grounds are yours to explore with wild meadows, a stream and pond, grassy paths and woodland walks. The woods are pungent with wild garlic in early summer. whilst fruit trees are pink-tinged clouds of blossom in spring 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's a barbeque and a picnic bench for a spot of alfresco dining. Totally idyllic!

Close to the cottage you'll find the fabulous Thorne's Farm Shop for all your essential goodies, and it's also a pick-your-own fruit farm - kids will love choosing their own tasty treats. Additionally, there are two great local pubs with the Ring O Bells particularly being renowned as a Gastropub. You're not far from Exeter - a bustling city with lots to see and do. You're also not far from the National Parks of Dartmoor and Exmoor which are a must for walkers and cyclists with plenty of paths and trails to explore.

Reviews

'Thank you to our lovely hosts for a wonderful long weekend. We very much appreciated the provisions and local cider provided for our arrival. The property is immaculate and very well equipped. Our dog had a wonderful time chasing birds and squirrels along the mown paths and around the property. The local farm shop sells the best smoked bacon and makes wonderful cake (gluten free too). We look forward to returning soon' - September 2018
