About this cottage

The cottage is situated next to the family home surrounded by private fields to the front and countryside to the rear. It is an ideal location for a countryside retreat but with easy access to Exeter city centre only 7 miles away. There are many beautiful beaches nearby, several of which are within 30 minutes drive, including Beer, Branscombe, Exmouth, Sidmouth and Lyme Regis. There are also plenty of stunning countryside walks including Dartmoor and Exmoor nearby and many attractions including the Eden Project in Cornwall within 2 hours drive.

The cottage comes with a fully equipped kitchen with microwave, oven, hob and fridge. The bedroom has a beautiful comfy double bed. The bathroom is equipped with a shower, heated towel rail and plenty of soft towels are provided.
