  • "Wonderful place, perfectly presented and very comfortable."

    Love the house. It was conveniently located between the range of places we wanted to visit, although we found the local narrow lanes challenging (we are Australian).

  • "Booking was easy."

    The cottage was excellent. As described and we had everything we needed. The owners were available if required and friendly but we didn’t need their help because they had left clear instructions on how all appliances and tv etc worked. Lovely underfloor heating in the bathroom. The heating was always exactly the right temperature. The eco friendly measures in place inspired us to buy a book on how to make small changes in our daily life to help the planet. So this was much more than just another cottage. Thank you for the best holiday in years! We might even write to the owners to ask the make of their mattresses because they were so comfortable.

    Cakes, tea & coffee waiting for us on arrival. Beautifully renovated cottage with all necessary facilities (from bottle opener to underfloor heating!) and set in peaceful, very rural location. Would definitely consider going back when we next holiday in Devon.

The property

This gorgeous country cottage has been renovated from a cob and stone barn and transformed into a wonderful eco-friendly holiday retreat.

Attached to its sister cottage, Plum Cottage, they both overlook an old cider orchard that stands within the owners’ grounds, surrounded by rolling green countryside, just outside the tiny village of Colebrooke close to Crediton in Mid Devon.

A perfect retreat for walkers and those wishing to explore the region on foot or two wheels.

Apple Cottage is open plan with a warm and inviting interior, beautifully appointed and well equipped.

A comfortable seating area is arranged around a wood burning stove for cosy evenings in during cooler months, and a farmhouse table allows comfortable dining next to the country style modern kitchen.

On the first floor a spacious double bedroom looks out over the orchard, whilst the twin room offers versatile sleeping with zip and link beds that can be a super-king double on request.

A modern shower room completes the interior.

There is an outdoor seating directly in-front of the cottage screened to offer privacy from your neighbours.

The village of Coleford has a great pub the New Inn and can be reached on foot, just over a mile.

There is also a good pub at Yeoford a 15 mins walk where you can also hop aboard the Ale Train along the Tarka line that winds its way through the beautiful countryside from Exeter to north coast and Barnstaple, North Devon’s premier town.

Join the two moors way from the cottage, where you can follow the route that spans from Ivybridge on the south edge of Dartmoor to Lynmouth on the North coast of Exmoor.

For beach days, head south to Exmouth that can be reached by car or by train, and the wild moors and high tors of Dartmoor can be reached in less than half an hour.

The nearest town is Crediton where you will find a good selection of shops, a weekly farmers market and a large supermarket.

Apple Cottage is a perfect base for those who want to explore the best this beautiful region has to offer, from woodland walks, country pubs, farmers markets and wonderful green rolling countryside.

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.
