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.

Lovely views as well and the owner was very welcoming and helpful. The cream tea on arrival was very nice as well.
Very welcoming cottage and owners. Extremely well equipped, clean and comfortable especially as a dog friendly cottage. The new games room is a great addition.
We had a delightful stay. Lovely owners and pastoral surroundings, yet near to town and places of interest. Hope very much to return.
We had a lovely stay in a well equipped cottage. The fresh flowers, doggy treats and cream tea on arrival added a lovely welcoming touch. We would definitely stay here again if visiting Devon.
Yes we enjoyed our stay very much. Checked bookings for September but no 7 day available. Will have to try next year
A wonderful welcome awaited us and it was clear that they had gone that extra mile to make our stay perfect. I would have no hesitation in recommending Apple Tree Cottage and Toad Hall to any of our friends, colleagues and neighbours.
