Farmhouse property located on a 120-acre organic farm with resident turkeys, chickens, cows and sheep, just a short drive from the city of Exeter and the South Devon coast

This characterful property enjoys a tranquil farmland location, just outside the village of Kenn. There are three pubs within walking distance of the property, making it ideal for those who want to take a break from cooking on their holiday. Despite its rural location, the property is actually close to many attractions and interesting towns, including the city of Exeter, which is just six miles north of the property, and the traditional seaside resort of Dawlish, which lies nine miles to the south. Dawlish makes a fantastic place for a day trip, with its sandy beach, shops, restaurants, and the South Devon Railway Line which runs along the Devonshire coast. Also within easy access of the property are the family-friendly attractions of Crealy Adventure Park and Diggerland.

This semi-detached farmhouse property offers comfortable accommodation and sits within the grounds of a working organic farm. On entering the property, guests will find the open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner with its cosy open fire, ornate fireplace, feature wall, comfortable sofa and armchairs, dining table, TV and DVD. The adjacent kitchen area is equipped with everything that guests will need to make themselves at home, including a gas oven, hob, microwave, fridge/freezer and washing machine. If guests require the use of a tumble dryer, this can be arranged with the property’s owners who live just next door. Upstairs there are two bedrooms, both of which enjoy lovely views of the surrounding countryside. The first of these is a double room, whilst the other is a family room with a double bed and a single bed, perfect for younger children to share with their parents. The double room benefits from an en-suite shower room with WC, whilst there is also a bathroom with bath and a separate WC.

Outside, guests can enjoy the use of the private garden with outdoor furniture. In the evenings guests can enjoy a guided tour around the farm, to get a real taste of farming life and to meet the resident animals including turkeys, chickens, cows and sheep. There is ample parking available.

Lovely cottage in fantastic location. Friendly owners who were very helpful and able to offer advice. Would highly recommend to a couple or family of 4. Ideal location to explore Devon and Cornwall.

If you like a cottage on a farm, this is a must for you, the owners live next door and are always willing to help or advise if asked. Situated less than a mile from the A38, so convenient if you wish to explore Dartmoor or the rest of Devon. Also an easy one mile walk to the excellent village pub 'The Ley Arms'. We certainly enjoyed our week there.

The cottage at Bickham Farm was more spacious than we had expected, warm and cosy with both central heating and a log fire - generous provision of lots of logs! Ruth and Rod made us very welcome, we loved our week there. We would highly recommend the cottage to others who like some peace and quiet, lots of walks, local pub with excellent food, and Read moreeasy access to get out and about. Hide

A lovely spacious cottage in beautiful countryside. Great to be free to walk around the farm and owners were helpful and very nice.

Reviewed by Joan, 13th July 2018

Lovely welcome from the owners., and their two little dogs. We were quite disappointed at the size of the only room downstairs. Great upstairs with the 2 very large bedrooms. , toilet and bathroom on a slightly different level . Furniture very tatty-in lounge. Bed in largest room could do with being replaced. It has been well used.. There is a massRead moreive garden at the back of the cottage. Although we only had a week there was no offer of a towel /bedding change.Steep lane to walk up to car! Hide
