    “Needs updating more.”

    As the drive way to the cottage is more or less unsuitable for cars as this damaged the underneath of my car. Also there were no deers at the farm as advertised.

The property

Witheridge 4 miles.

This is a delightful rural retreat off the beaten track in the heart of Devon, but easily accessible.

Set on a 42-acre deer farm with woodland, rolling meadows and a fishing lake, this detached cottage will appeal to countryside lovers.

The light, bright open plan living area has oak floors, a comfy leather suite and a woodburner for that little extra bit of comfort on cooler evenings.

There is an oak door opening to the staircase from the living room, leading to two attractive bedrooms offering lovely countryside views, both sharing a bathroom.

Guests have their own private patio area adjacent to the cottage and are free to wander through the owners superb garden towards the meadows and down to the lake, where there is fishing, birdwatching or simply space for peace and quiet.

Take a couple of chairs and spend some time watching the herd of deer and stags.

This lovely cottage is only four miles from attractive Witheridge, five miles from the village of Kings Nympton or ten minutes drive from the market town of South Molton, known as the gateway to Exmoor and famous for its Pannier Market, quaint tea rooms and antiques shops.

This area of Devon is an excellent touring base with easy access to many places of interest, including RHS Rosemoor, Dartington Crystal and Exmoor National Park, not forgetting the spectacular coastline and sandy beaches along the North Devon coast.

We are sure that this is a cottage that you will want to return to.
