The garden is west-facing and during the summer months the sunsets are breath-taking. Even in peak summertime this part of Mid Devon is tranquil and quiet. A walk up the lane reveals a different, but equally stunning, view from every gateway. Just one mile down the lane from the cottage, is Bickleigh Mill, a historic water mill, café and gift shop, where you can spend the day dining alfresco by the River Exe.
