We have just spent 3 weeks at the Apple Shed Cottage and have had wonderful time. I would certainly recommend it if you want a peaceful time in the country with beautiful views surrounded by farming land and yet easy access to the motorway. The building is a traditional Devon white washed long house and the inside was very roomy, modern, comfortablRead moree and spotless. It was hard to leave. I will miss your cakes and smiles Lucy and of course the three dogs. Thank you. Hide

The apple shed is a wonderful cottage. We had a very warm welcome by Lucy, het family and the dogs. Lucy also provided lots of toys for our toddler, who loved the tricycle. Thanks!

The apple shed was just perfect, perfect location, perfect home from home situation and stunning countryside views and very quiet. The pictures of the cottage did not do it justice as it was far better than any picture can portray. If 11 out of 10 was available then this would be my vote.

Lovely cottage in a great location ideal for exploring Devon and visiting the National Trust houses which is why we chose it. The North and South coast are easily reached by car.
