  • "What a delightful cottage in a wonderful location."

    Nobody could ask for more. I could not recommended this place any stronger, deserves 10 out of 10 every day of the week. The wife and I spent the Xmas week here with our grandson and we all had a fab time. The facilities are top notch and attention to detail is superb. We will definitely be looking to book again.

    Thank you so much David! We’re so glad you enjoyed your stay and look forward to welcoming you back in the future. Amanda and Steve Property Owner

    Great, quiet location with easy access to surrounding districts. We would place it on our 'return to' list, should we decide to re-visit the area. Geoff & Sheila

    We're so very glad you enjoyed your stay at our cottage! All the best, Amanda & Steve Property Owner

  • "Pumphouse Cottage is gorgeous, and is a credit to the owner’s attention to detail."

    The cottage is welcoming, clean & cared for and the beds were so comfy! The welcome basket was appreciated and our dog wasn’t forgotten with treats left for her too. The neighbours were friendly. It is located in a quiet rural location so lots of nice walks but the M5 is easily accessible should you wish to venture further. Saying that the cottage is so comfortable I’d happily spend my time there, relaxing & reading as the cottage is perfect.

  • "Pumphouse cottage was perfect for us."

    We chose the location because we were attending a wedding nearby. The area is excellent for walking and there are plenty of places to visit. The cottage is well equipped with all you could need . The most notable thing is that it is immaculate. It is in a very quiet setting but easily accessible from the M5 I would recommend this cottage to friends as a lovely property for a relaxing stay.

    Thanks so much Viv. It means a lot to us, to know that you enjoyed your stay. All the best, Amanda & Steve Property Owner

  • "This cottage is exceptional!"

    Huge, clean and so comfortable. It must be the most comfortable "holiday " bed I've ever slept in. Thank you for the welcome pack, cream tea and Dog treats. Loved the industrial theme throughout. Even my Husband said "shall we change our radiators for ones like these" until we saw the price in Screwfix, Gulp!!!! The kitchen had everything you could possibly need and plenty of it. I could do with another holiday just to lounge around and read all the books that were in every room. We took our dog on regular walks to Knightshayes which a National Trust property near Tiverton. For those who enjoy knitting like me, there's a lovely wool shop in Cullompton. Sorry I forgot to leave a review in the Guest book. Thank you for letting us stay, we'd love to return. Tracy and Paul

    Thank you so much Tracy! It’s so lovely to hear when guests have had such a lovely time. My husband will be glad to hear you loved the radiators - his idea while I gulped!! Look forward to welcoming you back sometime. Amanda Property Owner

  • "Superb cottage."

    The moment we walked in, we felt at home. The cottage was beautiful, spotlessly clean, exceptionally well equipped and, the touch of a Christmas tree and decorations, was a lovely surprise. It's lovely location and the quietness was a welcome treat, from the bustle of Christmas. The proximity to the M5, means all parts of Devon are accessible. The kindness of dog treats, was a huge success with Reggie, as was the enclosed garden area at the back of the cottage. We would love to come back.

    They couldn't fault the cottage. My sister loves baking and found everything to hand in the kitchen, and instructions for every appliance. It was cosy and comfortable and the Christmas tree and personal greeting set the seal on what was a thoroughly enjoyable stay.

    We think it should be rated 5 star! As soon as we walked in it felt comfortable and clean. We loved the attention to detail in the decor and extra things provided for our dog such as the bowls (handy if forgotten!) and the treats and ball for her. Very quiet location with friendly neighbours. Loved sitting in the garden with a glass of wine enjoying the peace.

    On arrival we were greated to afternoon cream tea and even the pooch had a bowl of treats. The garden was private and safe for our 12 month old pup. I could go on and on about how amazing this place is but I still would not be doing it justice. Ideal for a relaxing family break or as a base to get to some amazing places in the area.

  • "We had a wonderful stay at Pumphouse Cottage, it’s beautiful picturesque surroundings were perfect but also not a far drive away from places to visit like Exmouth Beach, Topsham, Tiverton etc, this was great for us as we love quiet tranquil settings but also like to get out and about with the children and our dog."

    There were all the facilities we could possibly have needed within the cottage plus more, the little extra touches like some tea bags, coffee and milk were a wonderful welcome so that we had a nice warm drink upon arrival, not to mention some beautiful scones with jam and cream, that was just a perfect start to our holiday. The cottage itself is beautiful, (love the kitchen, it’s given us ideas for our own), spotlessly clean and rests within a private dwelling, absolute heaven for us! We would definately love to come back again.

The property

Set back within a sleepy cluster of cottages in the picturesque village of Uffculme, Pumphouse Cottage is a fabulous dwelling at the heart of the Devon countryside, offering a wonderful home-away-from-home for a family or group of five.

Exuding character and charm through many rustic features such as exposed brick walls and rustic wood beams, this pleasant abode adds a touch of luxury to any self-catering stay.

Be welcomed into an attractive sitting room hosting two plush leather sofas, a welcoming electric woodburner-style stove and an impressive Smart TV with Blu-ray and DVD player, perfect for those relaxing evenings spent snuggled up indoors.

A few steps away lies a chic navy kitchen featuring a striking Belfast sink and sleek appliances such as a double electric oven with gas hob, a spacious fridge/freezer and a dishwasher, which, along with the stylish dining area providing the ultimate space to cook and enjoy delicious meals throughout your stay.

The back door can be found leading out into a gorgeous courtyard with a large rustic style dining set, able to seat up to ten people, and steps up to an additional seating area, where you can bask in the sunshine on a warm summer's day and indulge in a lovingly prepared lunch alfresco.

A lovely herb garden is present as well and the wonderful addition of a warm-water dog shower will let you pamper your pet after the walks in the countryside.

Back inside, a well-designed cloakroom (with washing machine) completes the ground floor, whilst up on the first floor, a contemporary tiled bathroom with muted grey hues provides ample opportunity to relax and unwind with a soak in the large tub or take your time to get ready for the day with a refreshing rinse with the overhead shower.

The first floor also boasts three restful bedrooms made up of a king sized double bed, a twin and a single, each complete with plenty of storage space and an inviting armchair, where you can escape the excitement for an hour or two as you delight in your favourite book.

The twin bedroom also benefits from zip/link, giving the option of a superking-size instead!

See the very best that the area has to offer with tours of the local museum of Coldharbour Mill, or an afternoon spent exploring the Gothic Victorian dwelling of Knightshayes Court, now owned by the National Trust.

Set about on a scenic journey through the countryside on the traditional steam trains of the Devon Railway Centre, or see the sights by foot with an exhilarating hike through Buzzard's Woodlands.

Meet the exotic residents of Yarak Birds of Prey on an animal encounter like never before, or venture into the Blackdown Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and spot Culmstock Beacon and the pretty chapel that rests just below.

Escape to the ancient city of Exeter and admire the incredible architecture of the medieval cathedral, before wandering alongside the River Exe to the captivating Royal Albert Memorial Museum and Art Gallery.

Grab a bite to eat in one of the many cafés and restaurants that line the city and be sure to check out some of your favourite high-street stores with an afternoon spent shopping.

There's so much to be enjoyed in the area, with Pumphouse Cottage making an excellent base from which to see it all!
