The house is a partially thatched 17c semi-detached cottage with an exceptionally pretty garden. Our little hamlet is a short walk from the village where there is a good shop, a Post Office and two pubs - one of which serves food. We are fifteen minutes by car from Exeter.
The double bedroom (with private bathroom) costs £85 per night, including breakfast. If you would like to book both the double bedroom and the twin bedroom, the cost is £135 per night for all 4 people. (And after 2 nights, the cost reduces by 10%.)
We would like to welcome you to our 17th century thatched cottage, which is in a quiet country lane just fifteen minutes from Exeter. It's an ideal peaceful retreat from the city; the traffic along the lane is just as likely to be walkers, cyclists or horses as it is to be cars. Recently renovated, the cottage is warm and comfortable and we promise an excellent breakfast.
Breakfast consists of:
cereals, granola, Greek yoghurt and fresh fruit compote,
'full English' sausages, bacon, mushrooms, tomatoes and eggs (from next door's hens),
homemade toasted bread, homemade jams and marmalade,
orange juice and tea or coffee
- or any combination of the above that you'd like, eaten in peace and quiet in the dining room.
We are within walking distance of Thorverton, a pretty village with two lively pubs, and less than two miles from Brampford Speke where there is a very good gastro pub. Exeter is a small and accessible city of historic interest and charm, with plenty to see and do. There are endless lovely country walks from our front door and Exmoor and Dartmoor are both within easy reach by car. The market towns of Tiverton and Crediton are nearby, as is the interesting old town of Topsham on the Exe estuary.
There is ample off-road parking at the back of the house.
Guests are welcome to make themselves at home in the garden: it's big enough for children to run around, and peaceful enough to sit and read a book. Feel free to do either (or both).
As this is our home of course we'll be around but we appreciate it's your holiday and will give you as much privacy as you want. If you need it, we'll give you all the help we can with recommendations of what to see and do in the area.
No smoking in the house please.
