    • “What a wonderful property to have as a base for our Summer holiday! Thank-you Rupert & Jayne for your attention & advice. Every comfort provided for; we had the best sleep I can remember, on any family holiday. Easy to walk from property to local attractions, & within half an hour of a number of great Devon beaches! We would love to return next year. Best wishes, Helen, Richie, Maddy, Joseph & Suzanne.”

    Mrs Orwat, Ashton-under-Lyne, August 2018

    • “The Stables and the Cadhay estate are a little slice of heaven! It was much better than we expected it to be. The owner and caretaker were extremely helpful and made us feel welcome and we were treated to a tour of the main house and stunning garden on Open afternoon where we met more of the staff and helpers. The cottage was very spacious and well-equipped and we felt very comfortable. Everyone was so friendly. The estate is quite close to Ottery St Mary, a lovely old town with all that we could possibly need and it was not far from some lovely places and the beautiful coast. We shall certainly go back!”

    Mrs Fearon, Hook, June 2018

The Property

In a corner of the original walled kitchen garden of magnificent Cadhay (G100, tours on Fridays), 50 yards away, are the former Stables and Coach House. They have been beautifully converted with flair into two good cottages, each with its own small patio and grassy area (table/chairs) overlooking the walled garden. Inside the walled garden are beautifully kept allotments, fruit trees and a fascinating greenhouse, tended by the resident gardener, one of the friendliest and most knowledgeable you can meet. Over Whitsun Bank Holiday week in May, a church fête and other charity events and the Nat. Garden Scheme are held at Cadhay and the walled garden is open over August Bank Holiday, when a section of the garden is roped off for your privacy. The original farm buildings are close by. Spring water. Professional catering available. Good walking from the front door. Exceptional for garden and country lovers. The Stables have been converted just as carefully and well as The Coach House, perhaps slightly smaller, but equally comfortable and to the same high standard, with Persian rugs, antiques, paintings.
