About the property

The Old Smithy is a heart-warming thatched cottage, nestled in the heart of the Blackdown Hills AONB, in the pretty village of Luppitt.

Set all on the ground floor and having been lovingly converted from a smithy building, this is a wonderful retreat for a romantic getaway, for a couple seeking to explore the delights of this countryside location.

Set on the owner's farm, enter this alluring wooden clad cottage and be drawn i0n by a well-presented open-plan living area, enhanced by an uplifting vaulted ceiling with attractive exposed beams.

The comfortable chaise three-seater sofa allows for relaxation in front of the electric fire, kick back and enjoy the TV with SkyQ at the end of an adventure-filled day.

A delightful dining area sits at the far end, while two steps up lead you into a modern and well-equipped kitchen which is dominated by the smithy's fabulous original fireplace.

Before a day of exploring this part of Devon, recharge your batteries in the tasteful bedroom boasting a super king-size zip/link bed and lying adjacent is a large, luxurious wet room allowing you to get ready for each day in exquisite style.

To the front of this charming cottage is a sunny patio which is an ideal spot to sit and enjoy your morning coffee, or perhaps an evening glass of wine or two.

Just four miles away is the delightful town of Honiton, a market town which displays a wealth of amenities along with a series of historical landmarks to wander around and admire.

Avid walkers will relish the engulfing Blackdown Hills AONB, as a multitude of paths and trails are available just steps from the doorstep of this home-from-home.

The world-famous Jurassic Coast is within easy reach and is most certainly worth a visit as it abounds in glorious beaches, astounding vistas and a selection of popular towns waiting to be explored.

A unique, homely base from which to explore this remarkable part of Devon.
