About the property

West Hill 3.4 miles.

Olive Tree Cottage is a cheerful detached cottage resting in the pretty village of Aylesbeare and surrounded by breath-taking countryside from National Parks and nature reserves to Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the Jurassic Coast.

The cottage is a short distance from the seaside towns of Sidmouth, Exmouth, Budleigh Salterton and also the famous Jurassic Coast around Lyme Regis.

These coastal towns offer a unique shopping experience with individual independent shops and cafes and are perfect for coastal walks and just lazing on the beach.

The cottage is tastefully furnished with a modern kitchen and everything you need to take advantage of a self-catering holiday.

Enjoy a meal around the oak dining table or alternatively visit the Nightjar Bistro Pub next door which serves locally sourced foods and a fine selection of wines and real ale.

There are plenty of other options nearby with the Diggers Rest at Woodbury Salterton, the Jack in the Green at Rockbeare and the Golden Lion at Tipton St John.

Moving through the property you are welcomed by a cosy sitting room with an attractive light grey and ochre theme being complimented by the woodburning stove at centre stage, making for an agreeable place to relax after a long day.

From the sitting room the patio doors open to a colourful courtyard garden where you can enjoy an alfresco supper on the Webber gas BBQ or just sit and enjoy a glass of wine under the shade of the Mediterranean olive tree.

Climbing upstairs there are three bedrooms, all with wooden furnishings and beautiful views of the surrounding countryside; There is a king-size bedroom, a double bedroom with a contemporary en-suite shower room so guests can have a little extra privacy and a single bedroom.

To complete the property, there is a bathroom where guests can get ready in style with a quick shower or take a long soak in the bath after an adventurous day.

There are several good golf courses nearby including Sidmouth and Honiton and Woodbury Park which also offers Aura Spa and Health Club facilities.

Go to the lovely village of Lympstone or the town of Topsham, where there is a host of good restaurants.

From here you can walk or hire a bicycle and ride alongside the Exe River all the way from Exeter to Exmouth.

Nearby are Bicton Park Botanical Gardens, Escot Animal Park, Killerton House National Trust property and Ashclyst Forest, which is one of the largest forests in Devon, which are a must for all who are garden lovers and are popular with walkers.

Visit the nearby RSPB bird sanctuary on Aylesbeare Common and the many walks around the area of outstanding natural beauty.

For the young, at heart, there is Go-Karting at nearby Woodbury Salterton, Crealy Theme Park, Diggerland Theme Park, and the Escot Animal Park.

Take a short drive to the Exmoor & Dartmoor National Parks and to the Cathedral City of Exeter.
