About the property

Tucked away within a quiet rural setting is this charming Grade II listed cottage, 2 Hillview Cottage.

Nestled in the Devonshire village of Dalwood, it is an ideal base for a small family or couple wanting to explore the Blackdown Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Upon entering the property, admire the encompassing views of idyllic countryside as you're welcomed into a homely sitting room, where a warming electric fire takes centre stage, perfect for chilly winter nights in front of the TV after a day of exploration.

Rustle up an evening meal in the delightful kitchen space, equipped with a host of amenities to cater to your culinary needs, as well as a modest dining table where you can enjoy your delicious home-cooking.

Enjoy a spot of alfresco dining in the tranquil enclosed garden, a lush lawn space where you can savour an evening glass of wine as you relish in the peaceful surroundings.

Once the sun has set, retreat to the first floor where two inviting bedrooms await, featuring a double and a twin room resting underneath exposed beams and with pretty low windows and antique furnishings, served by a fantastic bathroom which houses a bath with a shower over, and there's also a separate first-floor cloakroom to avoid the morning queues.

2 Hillview Cottage is perfectly placed for exploring the Devonshire countryside and coast.

Surrounded by luscious fields and a babbling brook, the cottage sits near to the Village Hall, once the old school, the charming 15th century church of St Peter and a number of attractive old thatched properties so typical of East Devon.

The Village shop and the pub, the Tucker's Arms right on your doorstep are ideal for stocking up on necessities and enjoying an afternoon pint.

Delve deeper into the Blackdown Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, exploring a wealth of thrilling hiking trails, walking routes, and cycling opportunities, as well as discovering the dramatic Staple Hill, and enchanting Combe Wood.

Venture over to the vibrant market town of Axminster, offering a wider selection of shopping facilities, dining options, and pubs, alongside fascinating attractions such as the Axe Valley Wildlife Park and Axminster Heritage Centre.

Further afield, you'll find some of Devon's glorious seaside resorts including Seaton Down with its expansive golden sands and rugged clifftop, and the sensational Lyme Bay with the striking Jurassic coastline nearby, a World Heritage Site with a wealth of National Trust properties to visit.

Other destinations worth a visit during your stay include Honiton, Branscombe, Sidmouth, and Sidford, all boasting unique experiences throughout Devon.

Return year after year to 2 Hillview Cottage.
