The property

This attractive, homely barn conversion is situated within its own enclosed gardens, on the owners' 19-acre working arable farm on the outskirts of Bow, a small village near Crediton, in the heart of Devon.

Nestled amidst superb farmland, with feature beams and wooden flooring, this cosy cottage near Crediton provides the perfect country getaway for families and small groups of friends exploring Devon.

This Devon cottage offers a delightful king-size double room, a pretty twin room and a shower room.

Prepare delicious home-cooked meals in the spacious, well-equipped kitchen before sitting down around the dining table to discuss tomorrow’s adventures.

Retire to the cosy sitting room, housing a warming woodburning stove and unwind with a film or a family game night.

Outside, an enclosed garden boasts beautiful rural views of the surrounding countryside, while acres of fields make a wonderful playground for children and dogs to run around freely and safely.

Ask the friendly farm owners about on-site fly fishing, pick your own home-grown vegetables and collect fresh eggs from the farm gardens.

There are plenty of walking opportunities along pretty Devon lanes spanning this luscious region, while the Dartmoor National Park provides fun-filled activities, such as pony riding, tor bagging, letterboxing and exploring miles of rugged, open space.

Guest Reviews


    • “The Cottage is lovely and the dog walking on the land is great. The property is in a quiet location and there are stunning views.”

    Ms Laugher, Swindon, September 2015

    • “This is the second jaunt to Bow to stay in this cottage, I and my travelling pal adore the place. We like to be self sufficient and this suits our needs perfectly. The owner is a very nice lady and although we do not always see each other I know she is at hand if I need her. You always feel safe as the cottage is situated right in the middle of the farm next to the farm house. I cannot fault it, it is a real gem and would recommend it to all my friends and family. The cottage has a great kitchen with all mod cons, a lovely shower upstairs, comfy beds, satellite TV and a wood burning fire - basically home from home - in fact its better! Looking to come down in May again with my Mum.”

    Mrs Scarbrow, Hemel Hempstead, April 2015

    • “The cottage was beautiful, very well equipped and welcoming. The owner was incredibly helpful.”

    Miss Johnson, Dorchester, March 2015

    • “This cottage is amazing and so cosy. I am planning to move down to Devon, it has been a life long ambition, I could have easily have moved into this cottage forever - it was so nice, ideal. I cannot fault it at all. I met the owner briefly, she was very nice. Nobody is on your case here, the environment and people are very laid back and unobtrusive, I cannot praise it highly enough and I shall be coming back very soon.”

    Mrs Scarbrow, Hemel Hempstead, February 2015

About the location


Exeter 8.5 miles.

A busy market town 8.5 miles north west of the cathedral city of Exeter, and situated in an area of Devon known as “Red Devon” so called because of the distinctive red soil which is of prime agricultural quality, and excellent for growing swedes. This is a rural area of Devon which is tranquil, unspoilt and where ruby cattle are seen grazing amongst the rolling green meadows. There are many scattered villages with welcoming inns, well stocked farm shops and friendly locals. Crediton has a wide range of shops selling gifts and groceries, a fabulous farmers’ market, modern leisure centre and plenty of family friendly pubs. Crediton is less than 10 miles from Dartmoor National Park which provides excellent walking and horse riding opportunities and a half hour drive from the beautiful city of Exeter where there are theatres, stunning cathedral, shopping malls, and historic quay with waterfront cafes, antique shops and bars.
