    “Nice cottage...not the best area though.”

    Just stayed here for three nights after our daughters wedding, needed a bit of r & r! The cottage is lovely, filled with all amenities you would need, lots of little extra homely touches too, toiletries in bathroom, poo bags and treats for your dog, all lovely and appreciated ...

    Just stayed here for three nights after our daughters wedding, needed a bit of r & r! The cottage is lovely, filled with all amenities you would need, lots of little extra homely touches too, toiletries in bathroom, poo bags and treats for your dog, all lovely and appreciated. Winkleigh itself was a bit of a let down though, one pub was just for drinking and very rowdy with the locals, the other pub was nice but if you had a dog with you, you could only access the bar area for snacks. There is another tea room in the village but it wasn’t open at all while we were there. There is a small shop and a post office too. The shop wasn’t stocked that good and shut at 5pm. Due to these issues, we had to drive out of the area to find places to eat, one thing we really didn’t want to do! Would I go back to higher primrose cottage.....hell yes I would! Would I go back or Winkleigh....not a chance!

Winkleigh is a small rural village in the heart of Devon's rolling countryside and offers a shop, post office, butcher and a cafe, plus two pubs, one which offers food and the chance to sample traditional ciders and scrumpy from the Winkleigh Cider Company. A van which serves delicious fish and chips also comes to the village twice a week. Winding lanes, high hedgerows and a more gentle pace of life characterise the area.
