Description of Garden Cottage

A wood burning stove, beams and exposed stonework enhance this pretty cottage making it ideal for a romatic break or simply as a haven to relax and unwind.

Tucked away in the Blackdown Hills, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, that have been practically untouched by time and discovered by few. Being only 5 minutes to the A303/A30 it is ideally placed to explore the Jurassic Coast, many National Trust properties, gardens, shops, pubs, restaurants and a huge choice of attractions not only in Devon but in nearby Dorset and Somerset.

This cottage has one large bedroom with stunning views across the Blackdown Hills. Downstairs there is a very comfortable and cosy room with seating around the wood burning stove and a fully equipped kitchen. The private patio is the ideal place for an alfresco meal or simply a quiet spot to read a book and enjoy the peacefulness of the surroundings.

Prices range from 285 to 525 per week, and short breaks are available all year. A bed suitable for a child can be added for an additional cost.

Please take a moment to visit our website where you will find full details of all our cottages. Twistgates Farm Cottages have been designed to give maximum privacy but are close enough to one another if you wish to come away with family or friends, and for extra flexibility, the ground floor, self contained twin bedded ORCHARD BEDROOM can be rented on a nightly basis.

Local Information

Very good walking in the area with many walks possible straight from the front door. Local pub in Upottery (children and dogs welcome, good food)is approximately 5 minutes by car but a very pleasant walk (about 40 minutes)along the quiet lanes, over the fields and by the river. Honiton is our nearest town and is a great place for shopping - plenty of individual shops as well as supermarkets, restaurants and cafes. Once renowned for lace making, examples can now be seen in the museum as well as in the many antique shops. Locally there are plenty of opportunities to enjoy bird watching, fishing, golf and riding. Sidmouth and Lyme Regis, on the Jurassic Coast, are a short drive away. The historic city of Exeter, with it's cathedral, underground caves, quay and many shops is worthy of a day trip. The national parks of Dartmoor and Exmoor are easily accessible as are many National Trust properties and gardens.

Accessibility Details

Unfortunately the property is not suitable for wheelchair users. Our other cottage (Weathervane Cottage) is single storey with two small steps and may be of interest to anyone who doesn't want to climb stairs.
