This bright and welcoming cottage is well equipped and boasts spacious accommodation and superb views. Converted from the original cider barn and approached through attractive grounds it stands alongside the owners' 16th century thatched farmhouse and benefits from its own secluded, enclosed garden with an elevated patio from which to enjoy views over traditional farmland & forests on the slopes of the Blackdown Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Located only 1 mile from the Devon/Somerset border and 5 minutes from J25 of M5 it is conveniently accessible to all the attractions of both counties such as Exmoor, Dartmoor, North & South coasts, National Trust properties and theme parks. Walkers can enjoy the many opportunities to explore the area on foot with footpaths and lanes leading from the cottage linking into nearby farmland, forests & wildlife reserves. Situated idyllically yet aptly described by one visitor as being 'in the middle of everywhere' it provides a restful haven to which you can return after days out; if you can tear yourself away in the first place!

The characterful accommodation with some low beams offers TWO bedrooms on the first floor, both with flatscreen TVs: 1 double with en-suite shower over bath, WC and second door onto landing and 1 twin bedroom with cot. Shower room: with WC on the ground floor, reached from the entrance hall. Lounge: situated downstairs with woodburner effect electric fire, flatscreen TV with Freeview, DVD, various books, toys and games. Kitchen/diner: farmhouse style with washer/dryer, fridge/freezer, double oven, ceramic hob, microwave, dishwasher and DAB radio. Outside: French doors onto a secluded, elevated patio with patio furniture and BBQ, steps lead down to the enclosed garden with gate leading to duck and geese enclosure with pond. Amenities: covered parking for one car and outside space available or a second car. Bed linen and electric included. Wi-Fi available. Towels for hire. Central heating an extra £25 per week. Stairgates available. Regret no pets and no smoking inside the property. Location: shop 1 mile, pub 3 miles, beaches 45 minutes’ drive, swimming pool/leisure centre and supermarkets 4 miles.

This was a lovely cottage, very cosy, comfortable and well equipped. The owners were charming and we had a warm welcome. The location is amazing, so peaceful with beautiful views. It is the perfect place for relaxing or as a base for exploring Somerset and Devon.

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.

We visited Somerset for a week to try to find a holiday property to buy. We weren't sightseeing or needing to entertain children and for us, the Cider House was perfect. Full of character, plenty of space for the two of us, but would have been equally comfortable for a family of four or perhaps two couples.

Lovely cottage in a magnificent setting. Nice welcome from owners. Good location for visiting many areas. Lyme Regis, Sidmouth, west Somerset railway. Plenty of places to eat quite close. Would recommend to all.
