Set in the courtyard of an ancient manor house, Wildflower Cottage is a beautifully converted former hayloft barn offering a characterful getaway for lucky couples looking to hide away from it all. With an upside-down approach, meaning the bedroom and bathroom are downstairs and the kitchen and living space upstairs, accessed by exterior stone steps, it's a quirky, charming bolt hole with bags of colour, original artwork, vintage ceramics and lots of space and an idyllic apple orchard to relax in. The owners make cider vinegar from their orchards and grow their own fruit and vegetables, so you may be greeted with some of their home-grown bounty!
Living and eating

With one large, open-plan living space made for relaxing, you'll find a stunning Danish wood burning stove at the heart of the room. A large, super-comfy Loaf sofa offers plenty of snuggle room amongst the cushions, where you can curl up on winter nights with the fire lit or with the stable doors open during the summer, letting the sounds of nature waft through on a warm summer's breeze. Additionally, there's a T.V for when you want to watch your favourite film or series - after all, holidays are made for relaxing!

The kitchen is to one side and just made for rustling up a romantic meal, with a butler's sink and all the equipment you'll need nicely tucked away inside white cupboards. In front of the kitchen area is a table made for two for on-the-go breakfasts before a day out exploring, or long lazy dinners, savouring local produce you've bought whilst out and about. Make sure to open the stable door on sunny days to let the golden rays warm you as you eat.

Sleeping

Descend the stairs and you'll find a romantic, colourful en suite boudoir in soul-lifting shades of yellows, blues and crisp whites. The stunning Feather & Black king-sized bed, swathed in goose-down bedding and linens, guarantee deep sleeps and long languorous lie-ins, whilst the gorgeous roll-top bath is just lovely - all you need is a glass of bubbles with your bubble bath to complete things! The lively artwork, velvet cushions and throws complete the room, making it a tranquil, idyllic hideaway to retreat to at the end of the day.

Bathing

Next to the bedroom is a fab shower room, complete with a huge walk-in shower with Lefroy Brooks fixtures and the most gorgeous mustard-yellow tiles and luxurious rainforest shower.

Outside space

Take a short stroll through the flower-filled courtyard to the peaceful orchard where you'll find a rustic picnic table and pretty benches just for you, with beautiful views over the village and countryside - a perfect spot to enjoy a sundowner.

Parking

There is parking outside the cottage.

WiFi

Wildflower Cottage has WiFi so if you need to stay in contact with the outside world you can, although due to its rural location the signal can sometimes be patchy.

Dogs

One well-behaved, small to medium-sized dog is very welcome at Wildflower Cottage. We charge £30 per dog, per week or short break.

Baby friendly

Wildflower Cottage is for adults only.

In the Area

Wildflower Cottage can be reached from London for a last-minute getaway by taking the fast train from Paddington to Newton Abbot which takes just 2 hours 20 minutes and hiring a car at the station. Or it's just 3 and a half hours from London by car.

Within a five-minute stroll of your front door are two atmospheric ancient pubs serving excellent food, and an award-winning community shop and café stocking locally grown fruit, veg, artisan breads, organic products and even Berry Brothers wine!

Just up the road is the lovely town of Totnes with its alternative vibe, independent shops and sense of real history (it boasts more listed buildings than any other town in Britain). Devon's largest Good Food market takes place on the third Sunday of every month with over 50 stalls whilst a regular market occurs every Friday and Saturday. It's also lovely to take a boat trip on the River Dart from here.

If you enjoy walking, Dartmoor is just a short drive away and offers miles of paths, tracks and bridleways for you to explore.

Drive to the coast to enjoy the beautiful beaches of the South Hams and also Torbay, all within a 30 - 40-minute drive.
