    Stables is a lovely, bright, comfortable cottage with great views of the manor house, gardens and walled garden where there are allotments. Everyone is so friendly and considerate, and a great bonus if you are staying for more than a week is a free tour of the magnificent Tudor house and beautiful garden. Tea and cakes can be purchased in the old apple store and either consumed inside or outside on the terrace. Cadhay is close to Ottery St Mary which is very convenient for shopping and within half an hour you can be on the Jurassic coast.

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.
