Walkers can enjoy opportunities to explore the area on foot with footpaths and lanes leading from the cottage linking into nearby farmland, forests & wildlife reserves. Idyllically situated yet aptly described by one visitor as being 'in the middle of everywhere' it provides a restful haven to return to after a day out.

My family and I spent 5 nights at the Cider House at the end of May. The Cider House is home from home with everything that you could possibly want and was very clean with lovely views across the fields, the owners are very friendly and helpful. The outside patio / small garden area is a bonus and our children loved being able to walk through the gRead moreate to feed the ducks and geese. The house is centrally located to many places of interest and we found some lovely local pubs to eat in. Hide

Nicely furnished and well equipped property in a quiet location, yet close to the motorway for days out. The patio area has a great view across the hills- good for bird spotting- and we enjoyed watching the sheep in the field beyond the garden. A nice relaxing break.

Very comfortable, well presented and clean cottage. In a very good location to travel to many National Trusts and, of course, RHS Rosemoor.
