Further details outdoors

The house appears to be on 2 levels from the front, but is on 3 at the back .The decking area is on the first floor and is accessed through the patio doors in the kitchen diner. This area is a real sun trap in the mornings. Nothing nicer than taking in the sun, drinking freshly-brewed coffee and reading the paper, whilst sitting in the swinging hammock. The ground floor at the rear has been converted to an independent, 1 bedroom self- contained flat, lived in part-time by the owner and friendly Spaniel. Through the back door, or via the side gates and down 6 steps, there is a large patio area furnished with table and chairs leading onto the 100ft garden, with trampoline, garden furniture and sun loungers in the warm weather. The garden is ideal for both children and pets.

This is a copy of an email received from guests who stayed in April 2014.

"Thank you for everything you contributed to making our stay at Treetops so enjoyable.

Home from home - so many little touches too numerous to mention but here's 3 we've never found anywhere else:

1. slippers waiting at the door,

2. every possible kitchen utensil

3. as well as the home made carrot cake and lemon curd

absolutely fabulous.

On our next trip to Devon – we know where we'll be staying".

The West Country region

Devon's climate has cool wet winters, and warm changeable summers. We cater for all eventualities, so

whilst visiting the South West its worth making the 24 mile trip to Dartmoor or Exmoor, walking the Tors, rock climbing and hiking. Cream Tea's at Widdicombe in the Moor. The children will love the River Dart Country Park or just playing / picnicking in the vast open spaces.

Beaches are never far away, 11 miles to Dawlish Warren, 9 miles to Exmouth with cycle routes to both.


Exeter is an up and coming City, with a population of approx 119600. It has increased in popularity with the new shopping centre in Princesshay and the weekly farmers market. The Car boot sale on Sunday mornings at Exeter cattle market is very popular whilst Rougemont gardens often hold the vintage fair throughout the year. The Devon County Show is held on the 17th, 18th and 19th of May this year.

If you are into music then Aeon Festival is a must go, held in Credition during August. Other music venues in town include The Lemongrove, Mama Stones and The Phoenix catering for all tastes.
