Apple Tree Cottage is one of three holiday cottages recently converted by the owners of this working livestock farm. The farm, which has been in the same family for over 100 years, is located along a private lane in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, on the outskirts of the village of Awliscombe, East Devon. The village is about 3 miles north of the busy market town of Honiton, famous for its antique shops and lace making and offering a good selection of cafes, pubs and restaurants.This attractive stone cottage has been transformed from a farm building into very high quality holiday accommodation. Set in an absolutely wonderful rural location on the edge of the Blackdown Hills, the cottage has been sympathetically restored, retaining much of the character of the original building. The recent conversion means that the cottage benefits from the added comforts of a pristine new bathroom and a convenient shower/wet room as well as a modern fitted kitchen including a dishwasher. The cottage has one kingsize, one double and two single bedrooms allowing for plenty of flexibility. The double bedroom is on the ground floor with a shower/wet room adjacent, making this property a very good option for parties that include someone with limited mobility. The provision of a cosy wood burner and an environmentally-friendly under floor heating system make this a great choice for out-of-season breaks too. Outside there is a large, enclosed private garden area backing onto a small orchard leading to open farmland and woods. This property has recently received a prestigious VisitEngland 4 Star Gold Award for quality of accommodation and customer service. Also see property references WFSTA and WFPEAR in this location.

The beautiful Jurassic coast of East Devon and West Dorset is easily accessible by car; the popular coastal resorts of Sidmouth and Lyme Regis are both within 30 minutes drive. A wide range of local attractions will appeal to those of all ages including the gardens and maze at Escot, the Donkey Sanctuary at Sidmouth and the Playdome (a children's all-weather play centre) in nearby Honiton. The Otter Inn and the Honiton Inn at Awliscombe, both serving food and real ale are also within a mile and half of the farm. 

Semi-detached cottage on two floors. Ground floor: Entrance hall leading to open plan living area including lounge with TV/DVD and wood burner. Dining area, fitted kitchen with electric oven & hob, fridge/freezer, microwave and dishwasher. Bedroom 1: with double bed. Shower/wet room with W.C.  First floor: Bedroom 2: with 5ft bed. Bedroom 3: with a single bed. Bedroom 4: with single bed. Bathroom with shower over bath and W.C.

Perfect for the grandchildren. Safe spacious outdoor space.

Very quiet and beautiful environment on a farm. Owners very friendly. Pleasant welcome with coffee scones and so on. Our granddaughter loved the bike and other toys very much especially the toy that played several tunes on which she was daily dancing. We had on Sunday a nice carvery at the hare and hounds inn and also a pleasant meal at close by inn at Broadhembury after a nice walk.
