  • "The cottage is comfortable especially the sofa and bed."

    The kitchen is well equipped. The rating is five stars and four ticks which is disappointing as the property smells musty. The humidity is 70% in the lounge and 80% in the bedroom so it is not surprising that there is mildew in four places in the lounge and in one corner of the bedroom. The wall is very damp by the dining table. The parking was fine. There is still no instruction booklet in the cottage so it was necessary to message the owner for instructions about the heating. It is a lovely little property but there are dampness issues.

  • "It would have been really helpful if there were instructions for the appliances, especially how to turn on the heating."

    Also details of where to park the car. Other than that, a comfortable cosy cottage that I would recommend to others and would stay there again myself.

    Thank you for your feedback. There is on street parking to the front and a designated parking space to the rear of the property sorry you were unable to find this. Im glad you enjoyed your stay despite this issue. Property Owner

The property

Located in Uffculme, a Devonshire village, is Oscar's Retreat, a fabulous, single-storey cottage.

Enjoying a convenient location near a host of amenities, whilst within driving distance to the Blackdown Hills AONB, Oscar's Retreat features an open-plan layout, a designated parking space, and an enclosed garden, making it the ideal abode for a romantic escape.

Park up to the rear, before heading through the front door, reaching the homely sitting room, where you can unwind upon the plush seating with a Smart TV for entertainment.

Continue through to the well-equipped kitchen, compact but complete with a host of appliances, including a gas hob, electric oven, and a washer/dryer.

Prepare meals for two before venturing outdoors and down the steps to the private patio, made for alfresco dining, bathing in the sunshine, and star gazing.

When sleep calls, head to the double bedroom, before awakening to a refreshing shower in the bathroom, home to both a bath and shower.

In the local area you'll find a Nisa supermarket, a post office, Bridwell Estate Orangery Café and The Ostler Inn for traditional fare, along with Bridwell Park and River Culm, both ideal for strolling alongside.

Travelling south, discover the Yarak Birds of Prey for an immersive afternoon, or Wildwood Devon, brimming with a variety of animals, a zip line, and a pretty maze.

Complete your romantic getaway with a tour of Exeter, its magnificent cathedral, and the Royal Albert Memorial Museum and Art Gallery, before strolling alongside the River Exe, or hiking through Barley Valley Nature Reserve, before traversing the East Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

For a memorable getaway, book Oscar's Retreat.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.
