A rural cottage, with friendly owners who are close by but not intrusive, and good for (well-behaved) dogs. We enjoyed our week and would go again.

If you're looking for a rural retreat, this is it, right on the edge of the village of Kenn, tucked away enough to give you peace, but within easy striking distance of Exeter and all that South Devon offers. Great shower pressure. Fully equipped with all you'll need for a holiday. Owners are very relaxed, so if you don't want to see them you don't Read morehave to, but they're very friendly if you do.

The Warren was an exceedingly pleasant place to live in. The furniture and fittings are first class and one could not ask for better. Ms Pitts was extremely helpful and always pleasant and friendly. It was a pleasure to be greeted every morning with a visit from the resident peacock.

Reviewed by Heidi, 17th October 2015

Very comfortable cottage for 2 people, within a lovely setting. Owner's garden and beyond very pleasing, along with the dogs, peacocks and horses. Extremely suitable for walkers and cyclists; cycling along local lanes and around river Exe, using ferry crossing at Starcross, very easy and satisfying. Son at Exeter University which is only a few mileRead mores away, so cottage an excellent base. Hide
