  • “Good location for exploring the Devonshire countryside and the house itself is in a beautiful setting.”

    Although the house was large enough for all the family one of the double beds was a little on the small side and shower screens were needed over the baths of two of the bathrooms. Other than that we had a fabulous holiday.

The property

This wonderful semi-detached cottage is located in the 50 acre grounds of the owners’ farmland in the village of Doddiscombsleigh near Exeter.

With breath-taking views overlooking the Teign Valley and an elevated position, this property is perfect for a family seeking some peace and quiet in the tranquil Devon countryside.

As you enter you will be amazed at how beautiful the rooms are presented, with a charming seating area in the entrance hallway and an all-white, neutral colour scheme creating a calming, tranquil atmosphere throughout.

The sitting room has plush red sofas and wooden floors, a luxurious, quality standard which is mirrored in the dining room and the kitchen.

Wonderfully appointed, the kitchen has a modern, chic finish and is perfectly laid out for cooking up a scrumptious family meal.

Step into the charming dining room set for eight and enjoy the social aspect it has to offer, perhaps in the warmer seasons you may want to dine alfresco and make use of the barbecue on the patio.

The bedrooms all comprise lovely bedding, are thoughtfully decorated and accompanied by contemporary en-suite facilities for your comfort.

Outside you can enjoy the beautiful tranquil atmosphere in the secluded rear garden just off from the king-size bedroom, or better still, enjoy the spectacular vistas overlooking the front terrace.

There are plenty of opportunities for those seeking walking or cycling routes with many outdoors activities or the doorstep.

The lovely city of Exeter offers paddling and kayaking along the river and admire the stunning cathedral.

The shops and restaurants will satisfy your taste for the vibrant city and the nearby Haldon Forest will fulfil your thirst for adventure.

Willhayes is a superb cottage in an idyllic holiday setting.

About the location


Shillingford Abbot 2.4 miles; Exminster 4 miles; Topsham 4.4 miles.

Exeter is a lively city in south Devon with a magnificent cathedral, historic quayside area with artisan shops and cafes, guided tours of the maze of underground passages and a wealth of bars, shops and restaurants. There is a good choice of excellent museums tracing the city’s lengthy history including an interesting medieval building The Tucker’s Hall, built for the Company of Weavers, Tuckers and Shearman which houses exceptional carved panelling, rare silver and a 4 feet long pair of fulling shears. Nearby Parliament Street claims to be the world’s narrowest street – less than 25 inches at its narrowest. The gatehouse and tower of Rougemont castle still stand in the city, surrounded by Rougemont gardens with a backdrop of Roman wall ruins - a tranquil haven. Exeter’s one time importance as a port is reflected in the Custom House, now the centrepiece of the Quayside, a fascinating complex of antique shops and cafes. Within a 15 minute drive of the city, there are some fabulous beaches at Sidmouth and Exmouth, and the start of the 95 mile stretch of Jurassic Coast, all of which provide ample opportunities for relaxation, sport and exploration. Exeter is an ideal south Devon base from which to explore pretty countryside and Heritage Coast.
