Set within 30 acres of farmland and on the edge of the Blackdown Hills, Apple Cottage at Halsbeer farm is the ideal place from which to explore Devon's picturesque countryside. Either on foot in the neighbouring Blackdown Hills, or by car with historic Honiton and the majestic Jurassic coast but a short drive away. We also have a heated indoor swimming pool to keep the kids entertained closer to home and ample space to kick a ball around in or take the dogs for a well deserved walk.
Apple cottage used to be an integral part of the working farm and date back to the Doomsday book, although a lots changed since then!
Sleeping three people, the cottage has been carefully restored with flagstone floors, oak beams and furnished with beautiful beds and ample furniture. Relax in-front of the tv, get online on your laptop or cook up a storm in our well equipped kitchen or simply relax with a book in our conservatory overlooking the duckpond.
Our lovingly restored thatch barns will make a wonderful home from home for your family in the heart of Devon's beautiful, rural countryside. Whether it's a cosy getaway for two or the extended family and the dogs that need to be accommodated we have the right space for you.
The downstairs of Apple cottage consists of a large flagstone-floored living area with kitchen and dining facilities and plenty of space to sit back and relax in the peaceful surroundings. The well stocked kitchen is equipped with a washing machine and microwave along with a wide selection of cooking utensils to make you feel at home.
Adjoining the property is a private gravelled patio area with a gas barbecue and ample outdoor seating making dining al fresco an enjoyable experience for the whole family.
The first floor of Apple cottage has a double and a single bedroom both furnished to a high standard with stripped pine floors and views across the farm. There is also a bathroom with a shower suite.
This lovely two bedroom oak beamed cottage would have been the apple store here at Halsbeer farm. Nowadays it's the perfect place for a couple or small family to get a break from the hustle and bustle of daily life.
