The property also welcomes up to 2 well-behaved dogs, there are some fabulous countryside walks to be had nearby and the friendly owners are also happy for you to explore their surrounding fields or climb the hill to watch the sunset.

Smithincott is nestled in the beautiful Devon countryside on the edge of the Blackdown Hills, the location is peaceful and quiet, yet only 5 minutes from the M5 and within easy reach of Exeter, Exmoor, Dartmoor and the South Coast making this an ideal base to explore the area.
