Nestled in the glorious East Devon countryside, on the edge of the Blackdown Hills, this property offers first-class holiday accommodation in a truly idyllic rural setting. Situated in 17 acres of farm land leading down to the small river Luv - a delightful setting where guests are free to wander and enjoy the beautiful meadows and riverbank (and make use of the riverside campfire and barbecue).

The house includes two ground floor bedrooms, these can be made up as either twins or king size doubles, and a walk-in shower room. On the first floor there is a spacious double bedroom with en-suite bathroom. As well as access to open fields and the small river beyond, the property has its own patio/garden area with barbecue, furniture and sweeping rural views. A delicious welcoming pack of homemade and local produce is provided for all guests. This property is also a great choice for familes with babies and pre-school children.

Excellent QUALITY accommodation, furniture, electrical appliances, Crockery, Beds, Games room, Kids toys. Farmyard activities and Kids play area. We didn't see them while we we in the cottage. Very safe environment for children. Even the riverside fire to roast our marshmallows was first class. Better than home from home. Excellent hosts with Les and Lesley. We would hope to visit again
