The property

Lying in the magnificent landscapes of the Blackdown Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, The Cosy Cowshed is an idyllic cottage providing the ultimate base from which a family or group of four can discover the true delights of Devon.

Set over the ground floor, this attractive abode has been beautifully renovated with stylish and contemporary interiors throughout, retaining its countryside charm through eye-catching rustic features, such as the traditional woodburning stove and high-vaulted ceilings.

Be welcomed into the commodious open-plan living space, brightly decorated with a plush yellow sofa and a striking blue feature wall, where you can rest and recuperate following an action-packed day exploring the local area.

Wander across to the chic grey kitchen and utilise the plethora of sleek electrical appliances that lie within, as you begin to prepare a heart-warming meal for the whole group to enjoy as you gather at the pretty oak dining table.

Open up the large patio doors and continue the evening out on the patio, indulging in a refreshing glass of fizz on the inviting outdoor sofa or indulging in dessert alfresco at the outdoor dining table, whilst watching as the sun sets on another incredible day with your loved ones.

When you begin to feel yourself tire, retreat to one of the two gorgeous bedrooms including a double and a twin, each complete with fresh and colourful linens and both served by a sophisticated shower room with tasteful wall-to-floor tiling.

Surrounded by luscious open fields the cottage is perfect for avid ramblers and outdoor enthusiasts, with an abundance of exhilarating hiking routes to be explored throughout your stay.

Climb the imposing Staple Hill or see the beautiful bluebells that line the scenic trail at Combe Wood, before venturing into the breath-taking nature preserve of the East Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty for a day on the vast stretch of Jurassic Coast with unrivalled views of the English Channel.

See the picturesque stone dwelling of the National Trust owned Loughwood Meeting House or make your way over to Axminister, stopping off at the Axe Valley Wildlife Park for a fun-filled day spotting exotic animals with the family.

A pleasant drive away lies the vibrant seaside town of Seaton Down, home to a soft sandy beach and arresting cliff tops that make a great setting for an adventure along the coast.

Tour the ancient Beer Quarry Caves or spend the afternoon in the National Trust owned Branscombe, before heading off to Weston Plats and indulging in a tasty bite to eat in one of the many cafés in Sidmouth.

Take the kids along to Diggerland Devon, or ride thrilling roller coasters over at Crealy Theme Park & Resort.

With so much to offer, The Cosy Cowshed is an excellent choice for your next getaway to Devon.
