About the property
SET ON THE DEVON BORDER WITH SUPERB COUNTRYSIDE VIEWS
FRESHLY REFURBISHED FOR THE 2015 SEASON
This bright and welcoming cottage is well equipped and boasts spacious accommodation and superb views. Converted from the original cider barn and approached through attractive grounds it stands alongside the owners' 16th century thatched farmhouse and benefits from its own secluded, enclosed garden with an elevated patio from which to enjoy views over traditional farmland & forests on the slopes of the Blackdown Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
Located only 1 mile from the Devon/Somerset border and 5 minutes from J25 of M5 it is conveniently accessible to all the attractions of both counties such as Exmoor, Dartmoor, North & South coasts, National Trust properties and theme parks. Walkers can enjoy the many opportunities to explore the area on foot with footpaths and lanes leading from the cottage linking into nearby farmland, forests & wildlife reserves. Situated idyllically yet aptly described by one visitor as being 'in the middle of everywhere' it provides a restful haven to which you can return after days out; if you can tear yourself away in the first place!
