    It was just like the pictures on sykes. The owners had left us 4 pints of milk some t bags and nice biscuits. Thanks. We had a lovely stay there. Had all the home comforts and we were able to use it as a good base for sightseeing. We were in exeter when the tour of britain cycling race came in. We visited a couple of beaches around the area. Went to killerton a national trust place. Worth a visit. We ate at the twisted oak on our last night. Meal was nice we shouldve eaten there more but the facilities in the cottage were good we cooked for ourselves quite a bit. The Alphington sainsburys was good to stock up on our food. In Exeter we parked in the quay which is free after 6. Loved the Quay.

The property

Ash Cottage is an adorable detached barn conversion in the quiet village of Longdown, just four miles from the bustling city of Exeter and on the edge of the Dartmoor National Park.

Here you're within easy reach of numerous sandy beaches and many tourist attractions; this bright, welcoming and comfortable cottage is well placed for exploring the area.

On the ground floor the open plan living/kitchen/diner has a lofty full height ceiling, smart wooden floors and an attractive living flame fire.

Above, reached via a handsome wooden staircase, sits the first floor mezzanine where you'll find twin beds tucked neatly under the eaves.

The stylish master bedroom and family bathroom are situated downstairs.

Outside you can take in the sunset from your own private patio garden, and maybe spot some of the local wildlife, including deer and birds of prey, which can often be seen in the adjacent fields.

On a clear day, the rural views towards Exeter and beyond are spectacular.

Don't feel like cooking?

Just a short walk away, The Lamb Inn, offers excellent home cooked food and a large child-friendly beer garden.

About the location

EXETER

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.
