  • “We have just returned from a wonderful week at this delightfully welcoming and cosy cottage.”

    It has been thoughtfully furnished with just about everything you could possibly need. Plenty of cutlery, cooking utensils and a cooker you are not afraid to use. By that I mean a regular cooker, not a new combined oven/grill/microwave with complicated settings. It is secluded and tranquil, without being overlooked, but not isolated. It is within easy reach of local villages and the seaside resort of Sidmouth and other local beaches. The garden invites sunbathing (sun is that side all day) ...

    It has been thoughtfully furnished with just about everything you could possibly need. Plenty of cutlery, cooking utensils and a cooker you are not afraid to use. By that I mean a regular cooker, not a new combined oven/grill/microwave with complicated settings. It is secluded and tranquil, without being overlooked, but not isolated. It is within easy reach of local villages and the seaside resort of Sidmouth and other local beaches. The garden invites sunbathing (sun is that side all day) and we saw lizards and enjoyed the sound of owls at night. Internet and wifi connections were excellent. We were concerned, having read about the headroom upstairs being 5'6", but that is only related to a sloping part of the wall, not all the head room. We had no problems with water, heating or anything else. Being a converted barn, it kept heat in really well. There were a few harvest flies, (lazy flies) but not more than if you leave your doors open at home, after all, this cottage is slap bang in the middle of the countryside and in no way detracted from our stay or reflected on the cleanliness of the cottage. There is fly spray, if they bother you. Based on our week, we would definitely recommend this cottage. It was very clean and very well presented. We were welcomed with flowers and biscuits and fresh milk in the fridge. The flowers had the most delightful scent. It is definitely a property that invites you to relax, the second you arrive. Carol, the caretaker, was wonderful too. She checked that we arrived safely and welcomed us and checked to make sure we were happy and had everything we needed. She invited us to contact her immediately, if we experienced any problems, which we didn't and she contacted us prior to departure, to check that everything had been okay for us. The privacy at this cottage is excellent. The beds and sofas are very comfy. It is set at the junction of lanes, but we only saw one or two cars a day. It really is not a busy place! R and J

The property

Along a country lane on the edge of the tranquil hamlet of Dunkeswell Abbey, half a barn converted into an interesting, rustic-looking, wood-clad cottage, light and airy inside.

Good-sized garden (table/chairs, barbecue) overlooking the owner's apple orchard and small field.

Inside, little glass-panelled lobby; pine-floored, L-shaped living/dining room with TV/DVD, iPod dock and French windows to terrace and garden; well-equipped modern kitchen (slimline dishwasher, microwave, freezer, larder fridge, electric cooker) with stable doors to terrace; bathroom (suite with separate shower).

Stairs up to small landing (5'6" headroom), off which two bedrooms under the eaves, both overlooking the garden and with limited clothes-hanging space - a double with low sloping ceilings and Velux window, and a twin with dormer window; loo (5'8" lintel, sloping ceiling).

Outside is a utility room with washing machine, tumble drier, sink and space for your bicycles.

Spring water.

A beautiful, peaceful place in which to relax. Dunkeswell Abbey: sheltered valley hamlet of a few cottages and the ruins of 13th cent.
