The cottages are nestled close to the owners' farmhouse yet offer guests a peaceful and private stay.

The surroundings have been classified as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The views from the grounds of woodland and fields are superb at any time of year – there are sheep, chickens, horses, domestic pets and, depending on the time of year, deer, pheasants and birds of prey to be seen. Long and short walks direct from your doorstep and with so much to see and do in and around for all ages. Crealy Adventure Park, Escot Gardens and Bicton Park offer great days out with indoor and outdoor activities. Fossil hunting along Lyme Bay and Charmouth offer great fun for all the family. There are many National Trust properties but especially the historic manor of Cadhay House, east of Exeter and built in the 1550's, is worth a look. Food fanatics will not be disappointed either with a wide range of establishments offering a variety of styles from quality pub lunches, to traditional afternoon tea as well as gourmet dining.

Games room: both cottages can enjoy the use of a separate shared games room with air hockey, pool table and darts board for adults.

A place to go if you want to be away from the hussle and bussle of everyday living. A beautiful location and a lovely cottage to take in and enjoy the peace and quiet. Another gteat advantage is that within minutes you are linked to a good road system that enables you to explore and experience the wonders of the fantastic coast line.

We enjoyed it here and we had no problems. It is very remote and we had difficulty finding it in the dark but that just added to our children's excitement. The cottage was extremely clean and well equipped. We did have a cold snap that weekend so we did find the cottage a bit chilly in the evening (we were out all day) but our beds were extremely cRead moreomfortable and toasty. I would recommend this cottage to others. Hide
