Set in the heart of the rolling Devonshire countryside, not far from the bustling city of Exeter and within striking distance of the North and South Coast, Apple Cottage offers a blissful retreat from the rigours of daily life. Designed for four but equally perfect as a romantic retreat for two, Apple Cottage is one of two beautiful character cottages, positioned within the owner's grounds just outside the sleepy village of Colebrooke. A perfect choice for lovers of peace and tranquility and for exploring the rolling Devon countryside whether on foot, by bike or by using the train, where you can jump aboard at Yeoford just 15 minutes walk, and take the Rail Ale Trail along the Tarka line.

Newly refubished in 2011 and boasting many green credentials, Apple Cottage combines charm and character with a modern twist. Immaculately presented and furnished and equipped with everything you could wish for. A cottage for all seasons, the pretty courtyard area to the front is the perfect setting for an alfresco breakfast or evening aperatif, a bistro table and chairs are provided for your use. In the Autumn and Winter cozy up in front of the woodburner, there is no better place to unwind and relax.

The West Country region

Experience the flavour of true country life with a relaxing holiday in the tranquil heartland of Devon. With glorious rolling hills, picturesque villages, bustling market towns and stunning countryside, Mid Devon has something for everyone. A walker's paradise, the extensive network of public footpaths and bridleways traverse the rich mix of farmland and woodland. Other activities including cycling, golf, horse riding and fishing are widely available for the energetic and, for those seeking a less active break, picturesque country villages provide a plethora of cream tea shops, real ale pubs, excellent quality family restaurants and traditional regular farmers markets.

Crediton

The location is perfect for exploring on foot or by bike and with the nearest train station at Yeoford just a 15 minute walk. Here you can take The Rail Ale Trail along the Tarka line enjoying some of the most breathtaking countryside following the Yeo and Taw valleys, that run the 39 miles between the Cathedral City of Exeter up towards the North Coast and the historic market town of Barnstable. Join the Two Moors Way just 15 minutes walk from the cottage where you can follow the route that spans from Ivybridge on the south edge of Dartmoor to Lynmouth on the North Coast of Exmoor. The lovely golden sands of Exmouth can also be easily reached by train or by car if you yearn for a day on the coast. There are two good pubs in the area one in Yeoford just a 15 minute walk along a footpath and the New Inn at Coleford a very popular dining pub and just 20 minute walk.
