  • "We have just returned from our holiday at the Old Cider Cellar and we have had a fantastic 2 week break."

    The cottage is well kitted out with everything you would need (except for an iron and ironing board but we managed without these). The mattress in the en suite bedroom was a bit soft for us but you can’t please all of the people all of the time and even this didn’t spoil the holiday. Our dog absolutely loved the enclosed garden and Mum enjoyed sitting in the conservatory looking at the views. Thank you for our wonderful stay and we would definitely recommend this place.

  • "The property was excellent in terms of location, welcome, facilities and comfort."

    Only criticism would be the very soft mattress of the second double bed, so we used the twin room instead. Of course, if you like a soft mattress, then perfect!!

  • "Lovely cottage in a quiet but not too rural setting."

    Very secure garden for our dog. Fully equipped for our needs and a great welcome basket, lovely comfortable beds. Looking forward to staying again.

  • "We had a lovely, peaceful stay at The Old Cider Cellar, which was a safe, well-equipped and tranquil place for our party of three plus one infant and one dog."

    The hosts were very helpful and friendly, and we would definitely recommend this property as being accurately listed, well located, equipped and maintained plus good value.

  • "We really enjoyed our stay."

    The house was lovely and perfect for what we needed, with well stocked kitchen and very nice and clean, the advert given was and accurate description and the house felt very big. Little boy loved seeing the horses just opposite coming in and out of their stables. A shame the grass was so long in the garden though when we arrived as it would have been nice to sit out on the grass for our son to play in the suddenly warm weather.

  • "This is a lovely little cottage on a working farm."

    The views across the fields are just beautiful and with the fruit trees in blossom in the garden and the sound of birds, it was so peaceful and restful. We were there to see family nearby and it was a perfect home from home. The place was well equipped, comfy sofas and beds and whilst clearly a lovely old cottage, had all that we needed for a comfortable stay. The hosts were also kind and friendly which made us feel very welcome.

  • "Very comfortable clean well equipped cottage."

    Quiet location but roads are good. A lot of thought has gone into creating the homely atmosphere.

The property

Honiton 2.9 miles.

Escape to the country to this comfortable quiet cottage with outstanding views across the Blackdown Hills and East Devon Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Situated on a working farm in Awliscombe near Honiton, Devon, is this characterful farmhouse, The Old Cider Cellar.

Part of an original Devon longhouse, and in the same family for more than eight generations, this cosy cottage has both original features and modern facilities.

The cottage welcomes six guests and two well-behaved dogs.

There is plenty of living space and flexibility in sleeping arrangements, making this an ideal base for friends or family.

The cosy sitting room has plenty of comfortable seating, a smart TV and - for those cooler days - a wood burner․ The kitchen/diner is well-equipped, making it a breeze to whip up delicious meals.

Enjoy views across the farm and countryside beyond from the dining room / conservatory, which overlooks the enclosed private garden and patio area․ The garden is both child and pet-friendly, idyllic for an afternoon relax or alfresco dining.

The downstairs also features a toilet and washing machine in the utility room.

Upstairs you will find three spacious bedrooms․ The main bedroom includes a king-size bed and an en-suite with walk-in shower․ Each of the other two bedrooms have double beds, one of which can be converted to two singles on request․ There is also the main bathroom.

If you can tear yourself away from The Old Cider Cellar and its charming backdrop, head into Honiton, a historic market town with a range of engaging independent shops․ There are many places for lunch in the town including Boston Tea Party, Coffee 1 and Toast․ In the evening, you may choose to visit the Railway, the Holt or The Star, or head out into local villages, many of which offer excellent pub grub.

For great views across the countryside, head just up the hill to Hembury Fort.

Beaches within a short drive include Sidmouth and Budleigh Salterton, while a little further afield are Lyme Regis and Beer on the world-famous Jurassic coast․ We recommend you visit the 2000 year old Beer Quarry Caves, Seaton is also worth a visit for its historic tramway.

Nearby family-friendly outings include Wildwood Escot, home to a zip-line, diverse wildlife and a maze, and Crealy Theme Park and Resort․ For those interested in animals, we recommend Axe Valley Wildlife Park and the Donkey Sanctuary.

The Old Cider Cellar is also well-placed for visiting fascinating National Trust properties such as Killerton, Knightshayes and A La Ronde.

For a taste of city life in Devon, head to Exeter with its magnificent cathedral and walks by the river at Exeter Quayside․ The city centre has a great range of both independent and ‘big brand’ shopping.

Escape to rural Devon by staying at The Old Cider Cellar.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £350.
