Sorry, that home is no longer available

House | 6 bedrooms | sleeps 14

Homecroft is a traditional property located in the beautiful Mid-Devon area of Cheriton Fitzpaine. The property enjoys breathtaking views over the surrounding countryside and boasts a large heated swimming pool that is available between June and August, making Homecroft the ideal base for a relaxing holiday.

The gardens are spectacular, particularly at night when tastefully located outside lighting adds to the ambience. There is also a large “fire-pit” for outside parties and barbecues. The house is designed for outdoor family summer living with a very large wisteria covered patio/ deck overlooking the swimming pool and gardens, which is accessed through the equally large convivial farm house style kitchen. There is good quality, comfortable, outdoor garden furniture both on the patio and at the fire pit for easy, stress-free, outdoor use.

The two acres of gardens contain two different styles; one country cottage plantsman’s garden and the other a fenced off field /orchard area which contains geese and hens. If guests wish they can collect the eggs for their own use. There are a wide variety of fruit trees and bushes: figs: apples; cherries; walnuts; quinces; greengage as well as more traditional supplies of strawberries, gooseberries and raspberries. Guests are welcome to pick the fruit for their own use when in season.

Internally the property boasts a large games cellar room (40 feet by 20 feet) complete with bar, pool table, air hockey table and a selection of more than 40 rainy day or family games. The cellar is accessed down stairs from the kitchen but also has its own external door to the garden.

Homecroft overlooks the doomsday-book village of Cheriton Fitzpaine which is full of eleventh to fifteenth century houses. The village has two pubs-one of which hails from the thirteenth century- along with the longest thatched house in England. The village has a post office and there is an excellent farm shop nearby full of locally sourced high quality produce.

A short drive away is the historic market town of Crediton, ideally positioned for Exmoor and Dartmoor and only seven miles from the Cathedral city of Exeter. Crediton hosts a monthly farmers market where you can find an array of local products and gifts.

In the summer it is not unusual to have a wide range of wild life passing through the grounds; badgers, foxes, deer, hares and squirrels. There are numerous excellent dog walks around the property of varying distances, both cross-country on designated footpaths and on beautifully scenic, quiet country lanes. Maps of walks with a pub en-route can be supplied by the owners on request.

Please note: Homecroft has more than 3 acres of land in a very rural location. The owners will occasionally visit the grounds and are happy to deal with any additional requests guests may have. Homecroft is a welcoming home for animals.
