Further details indoors

A traditional cottage with a log burner set into an inglenook fireplace. It's clean and decorated to a really high standard creating a 'home from home' feel. Ideal for couples or families alike - a perfect rural hideway!!

Further details outdoors

Words can't describe the wonderful views from the cottage. The large expanse of garden creates a sense of freedom and peace.

The West Country region

This is a very beautiful part of the country. This enchanting spot is within easy reach of the Jurassic coast (for fossil hunting and sandy beaches), Dartmoor, Exmoor and many National Trust Properties (including Wellington Monument, Killerton House and Knightshayes).

For sports enthusiasts there is plenty to do with horse riding, golf and fishing offered locally.


The property is also within easy reach of the cathedral city of Exeter and Somerset’s County town, Taunton, which offer farmers markets, high street shopping, theatres, restaurants, leisure facilities, museums and much more. Family attractions locally include Crealy Adventure Park, Bicton Gardens, Quad World and Diggerland.

Alternatively learn to fly with Devon and Somerset Flight Training or attend the parachute school with Sky Dive UK both based at Dunkeswell Aerodrome (3 miles), try off-roading at the Landrover Experience (7 miles) or explore the ruins of Dunkeswell Abbey (½ mile). Cook up something special at home or dine out at one of the many pubs and restaurants nearby which offer a range of good food and real ales.
