The property

Clyst St Mary 1 mile.

This attractive, upside down duplex cottage is part of a converted mill house, situated within 12 acres of grounds beside a successful Bed and Breakfast, one mile from the village of Clyst St Mary in a rural setting near Exeter.

This lovely Devon cottage is an ideal quiet getaway for two, being surrounded by beautifully kept gardens and green meadows, with the mill stream meandering close by.

The entrance of this Devon cottage is approached from an external stairway, draped with hops and roses in the summer, which opens into a bright and airy open plan living area overlooking the gardens.

Stairs lead down to the bedroom and shower room on the ground floor.

The owners have paid careful attention to detail, resulting in a cottage with a luxurious feel offering a huge warm welcome, and the advantage of being able to nip next door for a full English breakfast!

The cottage is handy for visiting Exeter and the Westpoint Exhibition Centre, and is near some fabulous birdwatching locations on the Exe estuary near Exmouth.

With its quaint narrow streets, old cottages, antique shops, and tea rooms, a visit to the lovely old port of Topsham is an absolute must.

A host of traditional pubs serving local produce can be found tucked away in picturesque villages across Devon, with many local National Trust properties and beaches just a short drive away.

This idyllic Devon cottage provides a warm welcome, all year round.

About the location


Topsham 3 miles; Exmouth 7 miles; Exeter 7 miles.

Clyst St Mary is one of the six Clyst Parishes in the Valley of the River Clyst and takes its name from the church in the village. Adjacent to the church are pubs, a Post Office, local stores and a bus service that operates between Exeter, Exmouth and Sidmouth. Less than three miles away from Clyst St Mary is the popular town of Topsham. This charming town is set on the River Exe estuary and has been declared a conservation area due to the wealth of 17th and 18th century merchants' houses, many built in the Dutch style with carved gable ends. Housed in a fine 17th century building is Topsham Museum offering visitors lovely period rooms, an estuary garden, a courtyard, and a chance to read about local history that portrays Topsham’s maritime and ship building past. Topsham also boasts specialist antique shops and some stunning views over the River Exe. The river has become a haven for wildlife with extensive reed beds, salt marshes and mud banks, which attract birds from around the world, including the largest flock of avocets in the UK. There are also some fabulous walks along the banks of the river, including one from Exeter to the coast at Exmouth. A short drive from Topsham takes you to Exeter; a lively city with a magnificent cathedral, historic quayside area with artisan shops and cafes, guided tours of the maze of underground passages and a wealth of bars, shops and restaurants. Within a 15 minute drive of Clyst St Mary there are some fabulous beaches at Sidmouth and Exmouth, and the start of the 95 mile stretch of Jurassic Coast, all of which provide ample opportunities for relaxation, sport and exploration. Clyst St Mary is an ideal South Devon base due to its proximity to the city of Exeter, pretty countryside and Heritage Coast.
