Encircled by gorgeous views of rural Devon and offering accommodation that boasts character, this dwelling is perfect for a family of four's countryside getaway. After arriving at the quaint abode, park in one of two off-road spaces before heading inside.
The kitchen/diner enjoys a farmhouse style and offers you all the essentials to fix up nourishing meals with, including a microwave and electric cooker; these meals can be savoured at the charming dining table. Continue down the corridor to the sitting room, a quirky space featuring pops of colour, along with table football and a wall-mounted TV for entertainment; switch on the electric fire for some added warmth! When night falls, climb the stairs to find a fabulous bedroom with a king-size bed with a rustic, exposed beam adorning the ceiling, or stay downstairs and rest in the well-presented twin. Further along from the twin is the bathroom, where you can soak the evening away in the bath with a shower over.
To the front of the property, there is an attractive, private garden, where you can catch the sun's rays on the patio whilst you tuck into an alfresco treat.

The glorious landscaped gardens of Killerton House make a truly lovely setting to enjoy a leisurely stroll, with over 6000 acres to be explored, whilst the Gothic Revival architecture of Knightshayes Court is well worth a visit; marvel at the period interior or get your steps in with a wander through the trees of this remarkable National Trust property.
