The Bull Pen is an attractive property with lovely rural views, perfect for couples, a small family or two single friends holidaying together and looking for a peaceful location.  This traditionally furnished cottage has a relaxing ambience and enjoys a beautiful location in the Devon countryside.  There’s plenty of living space and the cosy lounge area has the addition of a wood burner which makes this a great choice for out-of-season breaks too.  The well equipped accommodation has everything required for a really enjoyable holiday. Outside there is plenty of seating on the patio and courtyard along with access to the garden and pond area, where you will find additional seating in a relaxing and peaceful setting.  The property is perfectly located in a beautiful part of Devon, and situated near the quiet and picturesque village of Colyton. The position makes it an ideal holiday base for exploring both Devon, Dorset and the famous Jurassic Coast.  You will also find plenty of delightful local walks and bridleways on the doorstep too.  The Bull Pen is part of a group of properties all with their own individual character and design - please also see TFLOFTTFCALFTFDAIR, TFBARN

The whole of the Jurassic Coast (including Seaton, Beer and Sidmouth), now a World Heritage site, is within easy reach and the lovely West Dorset seaside town of Lyme Regis is only about 15 minutes away by car.  The popular Seaton Tramway, running along the Axe estuary, stops nearby offering a relaxing way to discover the local area.  For those that enjoy a culinary treat, celebrity chef Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall's River Cottage shop and restaurant is a short drive away in the East Devon market town of Axminster.

Very enjoyable stay - Jane Urquhart was a very pleasant and helpful host.

July 2017

We had a wonderful 11 nights stay. Jane was a wonderful host and couldn't do enough for us to ensure we enjoyed our stay. Having said that she was only there if we wanted her to be there and wasn't intrusive at all. The gardens/grounds were immaculate and you were free to take advantage of all the cosy seating areas. The cottage itself was fresh and spotless with everything you needed and for the two of as and the dog very spacious. Regarding the dog - the cottage and gardens extremely dog friendly and he was made to feel as welcome as us.The location is also perfect for exploring the East coast of Devon as well as Dorest, some beautiful villages inland as well. Great walks as well directly from the cottage door and an easy walk into Colyton. I would strongly recommend staying in any of Jane's cottages and would gladly go back again.

Lovely welcome from Jane, really useful welcome pack, our Cottage was extremely comfortable, well equipped, and the attention to detail is fabulous. Really impressed with the landscaped grounds & gardens which all guests were welcome to enjoy, something that is often overlooked with holiday accommodation. The Bull Pen is a wonderful homely & comfortable cottage, just hope we can return again soon!

Fantastic property surrounded with equally superb others. I felt that your brochure and online description of the properties was underselling these delightful, luxurious and romantic getaways. This was by far the most luxuriant of the cottages we have stayed in and the attention to detail and the friendliness of the owner was outstanding. After our disappointing experience at Aveton Gifford last year we nearly didn`t book with you again. However we thought we would try one more time, and we are extremely glad we did. The difference was amazing, totally romantic and luxuriant time we have just had is poles apart. It is a pity that more is not made of the walking and wildlife on its doorstep and also the unique position of being so close to so many beaches and seaside towns. The owner is more like a host at a country house week away and through her friendly advice, we were able to experience great eateries, hidden country houses and shopping destinations. We had contact with the owner from the time of booking with you and her attention to detail was incredible, down to enquiring which wine my wife liked. We arrived to find the best welcome pack we have ever had (from you or others) including a bottle of rose wine. Fantastic. Peter from the Isle of White

We are delighted you enjoyed your stay at The Bull Pen and your confidence has been restored with a fabulous experience in East Devon. The cottage has been recently improved to enhance its comfort and romantic appeal, which has proven a great success. The owner works very hard to ensure guests have a wonderful experience in all the properties and the feedback we receive for Tritchayne Farm Cottages is always excellent and the facilities and gardens are improving constantly. We hope you will return and enjoy the location again.

I haven't been able to select from the above but confirm that all were excellent! Tritchayne, as a holiday venue, has been and continues to be very sympathetically developed by Jane Urquhart, and if a quiet, countryside, dog friendly retreat is required one need not look further. Jane was always on hand and was a first class 'hostess'!

February 2017

Jane was a wonderful and accommodating host. Spotlessly clean, and beautifully appointed The Bull Pen was very peaceful and perfectly sited for easy dog walking for us. All in all a lovely place to be and we will be back.
