    “This our second stay at the Pumphouse Cottage and we are already booked to stay a third time.”

    It is a wonderful cottage. It is spotlessly clean, with modern, high quality furnishings. It is spacious and light. The bed is so comfy and the kitchen is a delight to cook in. It is set in a quiet location, yet it has easy access to the M5 and some wonderful places to walk. It is very dog friendly and the back garden is fully enclosed. An absolute gem and one which we hope to stay in many more times.

The property

Nestled amongst a cluster of idyllic countryside cottages within the village of Uffculme, Pumphouse Cottage is a beautifully-appointed dwelling surrounded by the magnificent green landscapes of Devon.

Decorated with stylish interiors throughout whilst retaining a certain industrial charm through its exposed brick walls and characterful beams, this inviting abode provides a gorgeous setting for any self-catering holiday for a family or group of five travelling with their canine companion.

Make yourself at home in the warm and welcoming sitting room as you allow yourself to fall deep into the chic leather sofas, enjoy the ambience of the electric woodburner-style stove, and enjoy the view of the central thatched roundhouse and an entertaining movie on the Smart TV.

Continue through to the attractive kitchen/dining room, home to a plethora of appliances such as an electric oven with gas hob, fridge/freezer and a dishwasher, helping you to prepare mouth-watering meals throughout your stay.

The kitchen/dining room also boasts a large and rustic dining table, perfect for indulging in some fabulous family feasts as you enjoy quality time with your loved ones.

When you begin to feel yourself tire, retreat to one of the lovely bedrooms consisting of a double, a twin which can be transformed into a king-size upon request, and a single.

Each of the bedrooms can be found hosting ample storage space and an inviting armchair, ideal for a moment of peace and quiet as you lose yourself in the captivating narrative of a new and exciting book.
