Set in 38 acres of beautiful riverside meadows and woodland, attached to the owner’s 15th Century thatched cottage, privacy is assured throughout your stay and is a great base from which to explore the beauty of Devon. As soon as you arrive you begin to relax and experience a slower pace of life. Visit the nearby pretty villages such as Bickleigh, which has the River Exe meandering through it, or the popular Mill that offers boutique shopping and artisan foods. The distinctive dark red soil, typical in this area, makes it a scenic setting ideal for walking and exploring. Nearby is the town of Tiverton, which has a pretty canal offering boats for hire. Further afield is the city of Exeter, with its huge variety of shops and restaurants. Devon is fortunate to have many National trust properties which can be visited during your stay.

Step inside and find yourself in the entrance hall, a perfect place to store shoes and hang coats after a brisk walk. First, you’ll find the open-plan lounge/diner with a comfy sofa. You can sit and relax after a busy day and watch your favourite film on the Smart TV in front of the warming wood burner along with a dining table to seat everyone. The kitchen is well-equipped with everything you need to whip up a family meal with an electric oven and hob, microwave, American style fridge/freezer, dishwasher, washing machine and tumble dryer along with a DAB raido to listen to your favourite tunes. Also, on the ground floor is the first of the two bedrooms a super-king-size zip-and-link (which can be made into a twin on request) along with a bathroom with shower over bath and WC. Head up to the first floor where you will find the second bedroom, a super-king-size zip-and-link (which can be made into a twin on request) with an en-suite WC and sink. This is a character property with original features with some low beams and sloping ceilings.

Heading outside, your children and four-legged friends will be in their element, with a large enclosed lawn area with garden furniture for you to sit and relax with a glass of wine or dine alfresco on the charcoal BBQ. Just 100 yards from the garden are the banks of the River Exe, the perfect place to walk the dogs or let the children build dens in the wood. There is private off-road parking for two cars available. Please take care by the river as the water is deep and can be fast flowing.
