    “We had a great stay at Pipkin Cottage, the owners have thought of everything and we were greeted with some lovely cakes and scones.”

    The place was spotless, comfortable and had everything we could have wanted. We met a few of the neighbours who were lovely and really friendly. A great base to explore Devon.

    We're so glad that you enjoyed your stay at Pipkin Cottage and we hope to see you again. Alison and Dave Property Owner

The property

Set within a pretty courtyard of cottages arranged around a thatched pump house, once part of an estate farm serving Bridwell Park, is the charming Pipkin Cottage, offering five guests a lovely base from which to enjoy the Devonshire countryside.

Being just under a mile from the village of Uffculme, Pipkin Cottage has all you need for a self-catered stay full of country walks and the beautiful scenery of Devon.

Make your way in through the porch after an afternoon ramble and settle down in the homely sitting room, in the winter months lighting up the woodburning stove before cosying up on the sofa and armchairs to watch a favourite show on the Smart TV.

Gather for family meals in the country-style kitchen/diner, with traditional table and chairs for enjoying pre-dinner drinks as the chef of the group makes use of all the appliances at your fingertips, with a washing machine and a dishwasher for further holiday ease!

Spend time outside watching the local wildlife and birds dropping in to the enclosed courtyard, with seating out here to perch on with your morning coffee.

Discover a cloakroom on the ground floor too, whilst up on the first floor lies the family bathroom, with a walk-in shower and a separate bath too, perfect for a relaxing moment to yourself with a hot soak in the tub.

Head to sleep in one of the three delightful bedrooms with a double, a twin and a single to choose from, all with plenty of storage and well-chosen interiors.

The village of Uffculme has all you need for a self-catered stay, from a handy takeaway, local shop and a pub, with the surrounding area being perfect for walking and cycling too.

Not far from the village is the popular attraction of Diggerland Devon, where full-size construction machinery has been transformed to provide unique fun for all ages.

Head into the Blackdown Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty to experience beautiful scenery and fantastic walking and cycling routes, as well as riding routes and bridleways, coming across ancient hill forts, woodland settings and lakes rich with wildlife as well as charming little villages.

The National Trust properties of Knightshayes Court and Killerton House are lovely ideas for a day out exploring the large landscaped grounds of each and learning of the history that lies within.

Discover a world of amenities and attractions in the city of Exeter, with its cathedral and castle to marvel at, as well as Underground Passages, St Catherine's Almshouses, and The Medieval Exe Bridge to stop at for a photo, there's plenty to do here before enjoying some delicious food at one of the many restaurants.

For a rural retreat with your family friends, enjoy a stay in Devon at Pipkin Cottage.
