The property

Wooden beams, rustic flagstone floor, traditional stove - Orchard Cottage has everything you could wish for in a country cottage.

Natural materials have been carefully used to create a warm and cosy holiday home.

On the ground floor, the light and spacious living area has a wood burning stove and glazed doors which open onto the private patio area and garden.

On the first floor, two pretty bedrooms; a double and a twin bedded room, have original beams and wonderful views over the gardens and countryside.

The owners' Shetland sheep graze in the adjacent field and the rural location makes a tranquil retreat or ideal base from which to explore the historic cathedral city of Exeter and the surrounding area.

The city is famous for its magnificent cathedral, unique network of underground passages, and historic quay.

From here you can take a boat trip along the River Exe or hire a canoe or bike and paddle/ride along the canal path to the Double Locks Inn.

For the more adventurous, Haven Banks Outdoor Activity Centre offers plenty of water sports and an indoor climbing centre.

About the location


Shillingford Abbot 2.4 miles; Exminster 4 miles; Topsham 4.4 miles.

Exeter is a lively city in south Devon with a magnificent cathedral, historic quayside area with artisan shops and cafes, guided tours of the maze of underground passages and a wealth of bars, shops and restaurants. There is a good choice of excellent museums tracing the city’s lengthy history including an interesting medieval building The Tucker’s Hall, built for the Company of Weavers, Tuckers and Shearman which houses exceptional carved panelling, rare silver and a 4 feet long pair of fulling shears. Nearby Parliament Street claims to be the world’s narrowest street – less than 25 inches at its narrowest. The gatehouse and tower of Rougemont castle still stand in the city, surrounded by Rougemont gardens with a backdrop of Roman wall ruins - a tranquil haven. Exeter’s one time importance as a port is reflected in the Custom House, now the centrepiece of the Quayside, a fascinating complex of antique shops and cafes. Within a 15 minute drive of the city, there are some fabulous beaches at Sidmouth and Exmouth, and the start of the 95 mile stretch of Jurassic Coast, all of which provide ample opportunities for relaxation, sport and exploration. Exeter is an ideal south Devon base from which to explore pretty countryside and Heritage Coast.
