"Do you dream of your own picturesque cottage in the country, well here it is. Yours to stay in for just a few days or longer."

Our detached thatched holiday cottage is known as White Witches, so named by the previous long term tenants in the 50's as they were so happy there after escaping the big city. When the garden is in full bloom it is the epitomy of the chocolate box cottage. The large lawned area is great for children to play or just relaxing in. It has been updated to give accommodation for modern 4 star living but still retains its character. Ideal for couples or a family. Self-catering but we can offer you a traditional farmhouse breakfast as an extra.

Situated in a little valley on traditional family farm in the heart of Mid-Devon.

The enclosed lawned garden has a picnic table and chairs with plenty of space for children to play and adults to relax. We have a 10ft trampoline with enclosure (use of which is entirely at your own risk). Also an 8x6 garden shed for storage of bikes etc.

A gate leads to open fields sometimes with our sheep wandering by and the river (bring your wellies) where you can wander along its banks and watch the wildlife, ducks, herons or you may be lucky to catch the flashing blue of a kingfisher or an otter. Count the number of different birds you can see or different wild flowers.

There are a wide variety of birds to spot , plenty of buzzards, even little owls and a barn owl. There are breakfast size trout in the river should you bring your fishing rod with you.

We will accept one well behaved dog in this property for a small extra charge.
