Contemporary cottage with a view - The Hutch Devon

Located in: Longdown, Exeter
Contemporary, comfortable and luxurious 1-bedroom cottage - close to Exeter, Dartmoor and beaches. Wonderful views, king size bed, stunning bathroom, open plan kitchen, living and dining room, with deck/terrace to take in the views. Nespresso machine and bathrobes provided. Travel cot, highchair etc also provided.

The Hutch is a new build holiday cottage within the grounds of our own house. We have built it over this summer based on what we look for in holiday accommodation (style and substance), and therefore hope you won't be lacking in anything.

Parking for up to two cars is off road just outside the cottage, where you can then access The Hutch through your own gated entrance.

On entering The Hutch step into the light, bright hallway. On your immediate left is your fully tiled, luxury bathroom with full length bath, overhead power shower, fluffy towels, posh handwash and handcream. Bath robes are provided.

Opposite the bathroom is the bedroom. Again, we have tried to finish the room to a high standard. There is a king size bed with deep mattress, high thread count Egyptian cotton bedding, plump pillows, cushions, stylish bedside lamps for night or day time reading. A wardrobe with hanging space, drawers and shelves is tucked in the corner, where there is also space for a travel cot if required (which we provide). The bedroom is also dual aspect but private. **Please note the garden area needs some work over the winter so excuse the temporary unkempt outlook.**

Out of the hallway you enter the open plan living, dining and kitchen room. The over riding feature is the wonderful views over the surrounding farmland - deer, sheep, cows and horses can often be seen. There is also a comfy 3 seater sofa, coffee table with travel and interior books to browse, flat screen TV, electric fireplace, cupboard with more books, board games and baby/toddler toys and books. Positioned in front of the floor to ceiling windows, is a small dining table and comfy dining chairs for two people (high chair can also be provided). The kitchen is a stylish, modern light grey with washer/dryer, fridge (with small freezer box), oven, induction hob, kettle, toaster, microwave and Nespresso coffee machine. The kitchen sink looks straight onto trees where you might see wild birds hopping around. Owls are also a common nocturnal noise here.

Finally, French doors lead out of the living area onto a purpose built wooden deck terrace. From this elevated position you look over our garden onto the surrounding fields. A Weber BBQ and bistro set are there to be enjoyed day or evening.

In terms of provisions, for those staying 3 nights or more we will make sure you have a bottle of wine to sip, some homemade cake, eggs, milk, bread, cereal, butter, jam and museli. Tea, coffee, sugar, olive oil, salt and pepper etc are always available regardless of length of stay. Within 5-10 drive is a small McColls shop and Tesco Express can be found in St Thomas, or a large Sainsburys in Alphington.

A welcome pack will be in The Hutch providing local information, but if you are new to the area and are looking for restaurant recommendations or a taxi to be booked before you arrive, then please let me know.
