Upon entering the beautiful accommodation, you are greeted with a light and airy open-plan lounge/diner with apex ceilings and exposed beams. In the summer you can open the front door to let the outside in, or in the cooler months snuggle up on the comfy sofa in front of the gas effect wood burner while watching your favourite programme on the Smart TV. The well-equipped kitchen has an electric oven, gas hob, fridge, coffee machine, microwave, dishwasher and washing machine, perfect for trying out new recipes or old family favourites. The bathroom has been thoughtfully upgraded with a shower over bath, his and her sinks and a WC.

Sleep tight with your faces glowing from a day exploring the wonderful countryside and enjoy the unparalleled Devon night skies from the comfort of your bed.

Outside there is a large enclosed private garden with far reaching countryside views, great for both you and your four-legged friends to relax in. There is also a secluded patio area with far reaching countryside views where guests will find a table and chairs and a wood fired hot tub, which is particularly inviting at night, when guests can enjoy the warm water under the star-filled skies.

Lovely well equipped cottage looking out over open fields. We were made to feel very welcome by the owners. The cottage was warm and comfortable. We made use of the hot tub. Looking up at the stars was an experience we dont normally enjoy. Very dog friendly too. Having alpacas for neighbours was a novelty. Overall a great place to stay.
