New for Spring 2018
This wonderful cottage is quietly tucked away in the English countryside in one of the finest areas of Britain known as the Blackdown Hills, an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Offering all the modern comforts of home, this fabulous cottage is welcoming and furnished to a high standard with everything you would need for a memorable holiday. This delightful property has a well equipped kitchen which leads through to a comfortable and inviting lounge with a wood burner and unlimited logs and fuel to make for a cosy retreat in the country. With such close proximity to nature it is most likely that you will see Red Deer on the doorstep and in the evening hear a chorus of Owls, along with bats on the wing and enjoy amazingly clear views of the night sky.
Burrow Hill Cottage enjoys a peaceful 'hidden away' location but is only a short walk from the rural village of Hemyock with its convenient amenities. Idyllic, unspoilt and enjoying privacy and its own garden. The area is perfect for dog lovers and the property allows the freedom to roam in the owners fields immediatley adjacent. The location offers miles of footpaths and bridleways and has a feel of adventure and exploration with the addition of two pubs, easily reached by foot. For the keen hiker and dog lover there is Wellington Monument and Beacon to be reached, a very enjoyable trip. In addition there is a small castle and the local amenities at Hemyock village means you can stock up without travellling too far. There are centuries of history to discover from Iron Age hillforts to World War II sites and famous Landmarks in between. If peace and quiet, along with stunning countryside is your thing, Burrow Hill Cottage will not dissapoint you.

The cottage was beautifully presented and the hosts were very friendly and helpful. The location is delightful - we all slept so well because of the comfy beds and peace. We were lucky to have fantastic weather and so enjoyed exploring the Jurassic Coast. Thanks for the afternoon tea which we enjoyed in the lovely garden. We also enjoyed the cosy log fire in the evening.
Mr and Mrs McCowen were wonderful hosts and we very much enjoyed out stay.
Really helpful and friendly owners. We very much enjoyed our stay, and it was a lovely peaceful property and great location for the dogs with huge safe enclosed garden and loads of walks on the doorstep.
We loved our stay; thank you Caroline and Christopher. It is a gorgeous little cottage set in a beautiful spot. It had everything you could need and felt like a home from home.
Lovely cottage in a quiet location. Cream tea on arrival was a lovely!
Yes, we thought the cottage and that part of Devon were fantastic.
Had a really enjoyable stay. Owners friendly and helpful. It was very hot during our stay and a thinner duvet and a fan would have been good but did not spoil our visit. Cottage was spotlessly clean and furnishings very comfortable.
Excellent cottage. So relaxing and peaceful. Walking from the door. Great place for the dog. We had a wonderful holiday. Owners very welcoming.
Burrow cottage is gorgeous & the owners are wonderful hosts. They made up a delicious cream tea on arrival was a lovely start to the holiday. I messaged the owners before we arrived to ask if they had storage for a motorbike which they were more than happy to help with.
Anchor Inn, Beer, for an excellent lunch
