    “This is a fine thatched inn, ...”
    This is a fine thatched inn, located in a lovely setting. It is a rare survival of an old country pub, with a genuine interior and log fire. Very good atmosphere and excellent food. It is delightfully out of step with modern times. No howling music or horrific digital interference of any kind to spoil your comfort by the fireside, but, yes, this sixteenth century building has very good WiFi!

Exeter Inn Cottages

Situated in the remote Devon village of Chittlehamholt are these four self-contained units. In the courtyard of the picturesque, 16th century Exeter Inn, three of these Devon self-contained units sit just a few yards from the inn, whilst the fourth is a first floor wing of the inn with its own private entrance. Each of these Devon self-contained units provide terrific accommodation, and also have the added benefit of a choice of bar/restaurant food at The Exeter Inn. These Devon self-contained units are ideally located between the Taw and Mole valleys, known locally as Tarka country, named after the classic novel by Henry Williamson. The Tarka Trail is within easy reach of these Devon self-contained units, providing over 30 miles of traffic-free cycling or walking through largely unspoilt countryside. There are a large number of golf courses near to these Devon self-contained units and the owners can help organise golfing breaks, which can be tailored to your requirements. Just along the road from these Devon self-contained units is the Highbullen Golf and Country Club, which offers a range of sporting activities and a beauty spa. There are beautiful landscapes and seascapes to explore from these Devon self-contained units; from the wildness of Dartmoor to the soft hills of Exmoor, which roll gently towards the dramatic North Devon coastline, which boasts pretty villages including Clovelly, Appledore, Lynton and Lynmouth.
