Charming 2 bedroom cottage in tranquil valley, perfect for families or couples

Located in: Tiverton »
Stay a bit longer! We offer a 12 noon check-out on Sundays, where no new guest is arriving on that day. Please let us know if you would like to do this and we'll confirm whether it's OK.

Cowslip Cottage is nestled at the end of a mile-long track that winds its way through rolling hills and a deciduous wood, opening out onto a grassed valley with a meandering stream, before rising to the entrance to the property. Between April and November, you may well pass bullocks that enter the valley to graze, or deer, pheasants, foxes and the other wildlife that make their homes here.

The holiday home is a converted, detached, granite and beam barn (or 'byre') that sits in a tranquil, bowl-shaped valley, approximately 3 miles West of Tiverton, in the heart of the mid-Devon countryside. It shares a courtyard with the main house (Brookham), both being part of a secluded, early Victorian, stone-built smallholding.

The cottage is accessed via its own private patio and lawn, where you can prepare an outdoor feast on the granite barbeque, sit and relax in the sunshine, break out the binoculars or play games on the lawn, all in close contact with fresh air, beautiful scenery and the abundant wildlife of the Devon countryside.

Entering the tiled Hallway, via the timber porch, the wooden stairs lead up to the oak-floored upstairs, housing a well-appointed Kitchen/Diner and welcoming Lounge.

The Kitchen's oak doors hide a wide selection of cooking utensils and tableware, and the solid slate worktop incorporates a double oven and extractor hood, should you decide to 'cook at home', together with a stainless steel sink and drainer. The integrated fridge and washer/drier are housed below the worktop, along with numerous cupboards and drawers. A long, timber table and benches provide ample seating for wining and dining, games or just drinking in the view outside.

The oak-mantled fireplace and stove in the Lounge are set against an old, granite stone wall that reaches up into the vaulted ceiling. The stove is surrounded by comfy furniture and a 32" flat screen TV, where you can watch normal programming, one of the many DVDs provided or any films you have on your hdmi-equipped devices. Or, again, you can sit and watch the countyside scene that is right outside the Lounge windows, as you plan what to do next in glorious Devon.

Downstairs, the Main Bedroom has a very comfortable double bed, with wardrobe, clothes shelves, bedside cupboards, and an adjoining en-suite. The En-suite has a tiled floor, WC, basin, shelving unit, towel rail and deluge shower for freshening-up after that long, scenic walk or fun day at the beach.

The Double Bedroom has cleverly designed beds that can be used as normal twins or slotted together to form a Super Kingsize berth. The room has a built-in wardrobe, dressing table and a comfy chair for those precious moments where there is nothing else you'd rather do than just sit in peace and quiet.

The Bathroom, adjacent to the Double Bedroom, has a tiled floor, toiletries trolley, WC, basin, towel rail and a large, deluge shower.

All rooms are centrally heated, making for a cozy home, even without lighting the stove. Hot water is on demand, and clean fresh bedding, linen and towels are provided. Electricity and oil is included, as well as a small supply of eco logs for the stove.

The cottage has direct access to the 1km footpath that leads to Buzzards, the National Trust woodland, which is home to otters, doormice, rare bat species, deer, fox, owls and, of course, buzzards.

A five minute drive takes you into the historic market town of Tiverton, offering supermarkets, many dining and takeaway outlets, recreation facilities and a refreshing, hassle-free shopping experience.

Given its central location and good road access, Withleigh is a great place from which to base expeditions to any part of Devon, including Exmoor, the North and South Devon coastlines, Diggerland, Dartmoor, the ancient city of Exeter, Exmouth, Halden Forest Park, Torbay and the many other attractions and destinations the county has to offer.

Devon is home to many National Trust venues, including the Knightshayes Court and Estate, Killerton, and the Wellington Monument, which are all close by, as is the opportunity to take a ride on the 'Tivertonian', one of the last remaining horse-drawn barges in the country.

Please be advised that internet bandwidth is limited, and mobile signal poor or absent within the valley. Also, the lane to the cottage is narrow, so please drive carefully. There are a couple of passing places, but these can be difficult to see at night.
