  • "Fabulous property, lovely finishes, great owners."

    Only note we would have it to make the guests aware of the close proximity to the owner as courtyard is shared and owners property does look onto the outside space and at night, owners can also see into the properties bathroom space. We may have missed it initially but to if not, to list there is only a microwave oven In the property.

    Thank you for your feedback, it’s always appreciated. We’re a new venture and still tweaking bits and pieces to make things better:) The small, ground level window at the far end of the courtyard is waiting for it’s privacy glass, it’s been on back order but I’ve had confirmation that it’ll be with us this week.. thank goodness. The courtyard is exclusively for the use of guests, as a family we use our garden located on the other side of our property which does not have access to the courtyard. The only time we access the yard is during this hot weather to water the plants which we aim to do whilst our guests are out exploring and enjoying their holiday. We are doggie friendly here, and hopefully you’re lovely dog enjoyed his stay too! In our advertisement it does state that we have a microwave oven, we’re sorry you missed this…it’s so much more than just a microwave, it roast’s cook’s, bakes and can do pretty much everything you might need. We’ve left the instruction manual out for our guests to refer to should they need it. Once again we’d like to thank you for your valued feedback, guest satisfaction is highly important to us. Best wishes Kev and Emily Property Owner

The property

Tucked away on the outskirts of Burlescombe near Uffculme in Devon, is this lovely one-bedroom cottage, Hillfarrow Hideaway.

Enjoying a peaceful location and offering easy access to the stunning surroundings of the Blackdown Hills AONB, where you can enjoy hikes along scenic trails, a visit to The Upottery Airfield Nissen Hut Heritage Centre, Woldford Chapel and the forts of Dumpdon Hill and Hembury.

Hillfarrow Hideaway is a fabulous family-friendly dwelling for a couple, plus their canine companion.

Leave your vehicle in the off-road parking space, before making your way into your new home from home.

Be welcomed into the open-plan living space, where you can look forward to whipping up tasty meals in the small, yet well-equipped kitchen, ready to enjoy at the breakfast bar for two.

After dinner, why not savour the last of the day’s rays out on the rear enclosed patio, where your little one and pooch can safely play.

As the evening grows darker, retire to the sitting room where you can curl up on the plush sofa and select a family favourite from the TV, as your four-legged friend curls up in front of the electric fire.

After a day of exploring, wash away the day in the well-appointed shower room, before climbing into the sumptuous suspended king-size bed where you can snuggle up and gaze to the vista of stars outside with all the luxuries inside, before catching your rest ahead of another adventure filled day.

For your local amenities, head over to Uffculme, where you can treat your loved ones to a well-deserved meal at The Ostler Inn or a light bite at Bridwell Park, perfect for when you fancy a break from the kitchen.

Other eateries include the traditional pub, The Globe Inn in Stamford and Hickory's Smokehouse for your barbecued favourites.

Within the village, you can also explore the museum set within the historic Coldharbour Mill, well-known for being one of the oldest woollen mills in the UK.

Continue onto Tiverton, home to the esteemed manor house of Tiverton Castle, the Grand Western Canal Country Park with boating, walking, fishing and cycling opportunities, as well as rides aboard a horse-drawn barge.

There is also the Tiverton Museum of Mid Devon Life, where you can delve into the local history, and the stunning National Trust site of Knightshayes Gardens, where you can enjoy leisurely strolls.

Continue onto Taunton, where you can wander the Museum of Somerset, test out your swing at the Vivary Golf Course or picnic in the idyllic picturesque park.

Further afield, you will find the bustling city of Exeter, well-known for its remarkable cathedral, Barley Valley Nature Reserve and Royal Albert Memorial Museum and Art Gallery.

All this and more awaits at Hillfarrow Hideaway.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.
