  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay!"

    We needed a break badly and staying in your cottage was the rest and peace we needed. The thoughtfulness you put into making the cottage a home from home is so welcoming and comforting. It’s a real peace haven. Thank you for the eggs, freshly baked goodies and stunning garden flowers, you’re the perfect host. I’ve recommended this cottage to all my friends and family.

  • "Had a lovely stay, the cottage is very rural so very quiet & peaceful."

    Getting to the cottage is not for the fainthearted, it's down a 1.5 mile long single track road. Once you do get to the end of the road though there are lots of beaches to visit & some beautiful villages with good pubs to eat out. I would definitely recommend it if you are looking for a peaceful break. Anna the host is lovely & very welcoming.

  • "The welcome to the property was above and beyond with lots of nice little touches."

    We were excited to try the eggs she had left for us from her chickens. She had also set us up with tea, coffee, sugar and a few other bits. She came and said hello on arrival the came back the following day with a baked cake for us, which taste amazing. She has also created a lovely welcome book with lots of information on the local area with recommendations. The bed was very comfortable and the shower room was great. We loved using the hot tub was a Nice treat. Was just Shame the music wasn’t working. Really pleased and looking to come back again in the future.

  • "Thank you for a wonderful stay ."

    We loved our time at Nuthatch. The cottage is so cosy and comfortable . Anna is a wonderful host - other sykes cottages have been very nice but didn’t have personal touches. We were left delicious brownies , eggs from the hens next door, and used the comprehensive welcome book of information. We were very sad to leave !

    She really did go the extra mile to make our stay really enjoyable. It was our first trip away with our e-bikes using the car bike rack.

    We felt so at home, such a cosy homely cottage in a wonderful setting. It was lovely to arrive to find fresh eggs from Anna's hens a bottle of wine and the most delicious chocolate brownies baked by our host . All the little touches such as soaps provided was so thoughtful, and the cottage was so well equipped. The location was perfect for our stay. We loved the peace and quiet of our surroundings and the hot tub was amazing especially after a days sight-seeing! We will definitely go back again !

  • "Nuthatch cottage is a lovely place to stay!"

    Anna was a lovely host and welcomed us with beautiful baking. There was an amazing welcome book with all the info you could possibly need to stay in the area (restaurants, pubs, grocery, hospitals, if you needed anything it was in the book!). The setting is beautiful surrounded by the countryside and beautiful valley, footpaths every direction you looked. The hot tub was perfect as well! Would 100% return to this beautiful little cottage!

Nestled between the Blackdown Hills AONB and the East Devon AONB in the quaint Devonshire village of Stockland near Honiton is Nuthatch, a fabulous, single-storey abode.

Enveloped by countryside walks and landscapes, Nuthatch makes a delightful home for a romantic break, complete with a stylish open-plan living space, an enclosed courtyard and the use of an indulgent hot tub.

Make yourself at home in the living space, where you can relax with a good book in hand, prepare delicious meals in the sleek kitchen, and dine as a two, followed by a competitive board game and a bottle of wine.

As the night unfolds, head into the courtyard to start the hot tub and enjoy a bubbling soak, before heading to bed in the well-appointed king-size bedroom.

Honiton is a delightful market town in East Devon, with plenty to offer visitors. It lies in the valley of the River Otter and is surrounded by rolling Devon hills, green wooded valleys and plenty of scattered farming villages. Honiton has an attractive High Street stretching almost 2 miles, and lined with individually owned shops, pubs and restaurants. Honiton has been famous for lacemaking since the reign of Elizabeth I and still has a few lacemakers in work today - visitors can see some fine examples of antique lace in the town’s Allhallows Museum. Honiton boasts the only public art gallery in East Devon; the Thelma Hulbert Gallery occupies an attractive Grade I listed Victorian house, and has links with the Hayward Gallery, London. Honiton is only a short drive from the dramatic 20 mile stretch of Jurassic Coast, England’s first natural World Heritage Site. Resorts such as Seaton, Budleigh Salterton and Sidmouth are found along this stretch of coastline, and all have much to occupy the visitor. Near to Honiton is the cathedral city of Exeter with plenty of large shops, a wealth of museums, a theatre and fabulous restaurants.
