You'll love preparing your best home-cooked meals here, with an electric rangemaster cooker, fridge/freezer, and ample counter space to cook with your loved ones. Grab a bottle from the wine cooler and head to the formal dining room with a large table for 12; ideal for celebrating those special occasions, where a bay window overlooks the farmland for a lovely backdrop. Just next door is the spacious sitting room with plush sofas, armchairs, and elegant furnishings to relax by the warmth of the crackling woodburning stove. Whether you've spent the day by the sea or exploring Dartmoor, make use of the private utility with a washer, dryer, and space to hang your walking gear and wetsuits. Completing the ground floor is a double bedroom with en-suite shower room, ideal for those with limited mobility, whilst upstairs a further five bedrooms await, each elegantly furnished for a unique staycation overlooking the farmland.

Three bedrooms are super king-size, along with a zip/link super king-size for flexibility, and a twin; all served by two fabulous bathrooms, both with roll-top baths, whilst the larger family bathroom boasts a walk-in shower and double basin. You'll also find two cloakrooms on the ground floor for added convenience! In the mornings, why not make a coffee fresh from the cafetiere and sit out in your private gardens? You'll find lawn space, patios, and plenty of outdoor seating to enjoy a moment's peace what better way to celebrate with your loved ones!

If you can tear yourself away, the heart of Exminster is a short journey away to dine out at the Royal Oak Inn or the Swans Nest, which sits on the edge of the RSPB Exminster and Powderham Marshes, a spot wildlife lovers will surely relish. The picturesque village offers walks along the river Exe, whilst the town of Topsham is just across the way; discover maritime displays at Topsham Museum, enjoy dinner with riverside views at The Passage House Inn, and admire the birdlife of RSPB Bowling Green Marsh. For the historians of the group, Powderham is close by to Powderham Castle, a lavish landmark dating back to the 14th-century, filled with antiques and tapestries.

Carry on to Dawlish Warren for a day out by the sea along a sandy beach, but if you're looking for an outdoor adventure, Dartmoor National Park is a must! Hiking, climbing, cycling and horse riding are all on offer in this incredible landscape of hills and woodland, all scattered with historic sites.
