  • "Lovely spacious property gardens are beautiful really enjoyed the views and our stay could only have been better by the weather So much character an charm throughout great place."

    Only down side was limited walking due to busy roads next to property. But shobrooke Park a short drive was beautiful to take the dogs to. Enjoyed local area thought 3 little pigs pub at Crediton was great and new inn was stunning. Quay side and Cathedral at Exeter was also well worth a visit and not too far.

Tucked away amidst the rolling hills of Devon's expansive countryside, on the outskirts of Crediton is this charming, detached property called The Thatched Cottage.

Enjoying glorious views and original features peppered throughout, along with access to some of Devon's best sights, including the cathedral city of Exeter, The Thatched Cottage is a fabulous base for a family of eight's getaway.

As you arrive at the property, you will be welcomed by plenty of off-road parking spaces, where you can safely leave your vehicles before wandering inside to be welcomed by this delightsome abode.

Head to the well-equipped, charming kitchen to whip up a hearty meal for the family with the ample appliances available.

Tuck into these meals at the enticing dining room, a space with exposed beams adorning the ceiling and plenty of character dining furniture.

After dinner, kick back and relax in the sitting room, where leather sofas offer you a seat in front of the TV.

End the day by freshening up any old clothing in the utility room, before moving across the ground floor to find one of the four fabulous bedrooms inhabiting the cottage; this one comprising a double with a basin and access to an en-suite shower room with shower and WC.

Ascend one of the two flights of stairs to find the remaining three bedrooms, with one of these offering a studio-style layout with a double bed, day bed and sitting area with basin as well as a shower cubicle and separate WC just outside the room; ideal for those seeking a little more privacy during their stay.

The latter staircase on the first-floor, leads to the remaining bedrooms consisting of a king-size, which is zip/linked for extra flexibility and a double with a basin; all the rooms boasting views of the far-reaching fields beyond.

Concluding the property's first floor is a fantastic family bathroom, where metro tiling embellishes the walls and relaxing soaks can be savoured in the bath with shower over.

The cottage additionally hosts a cloakroom, for added convenience.

Make your way outside to find a beautifully landscaped garden which houses ample seating areas for you to take advantage of, before dipping your toes in the bubbling hot tub, or treating yourself to a drink at the outdoor bar; all the while being surrounded by an unbeatable panorama!

Travel a short way into Crediton to access your amenities, which the town has an abundance of, from an array of eateries, including the popular Three Little Pigs pub, along with a range of well-stocked shops; the town additionally backs onto the esteemed Downes Crediton Golf Club and Shobrooke Park, so there's no need to venture far to find things to do.

Travel a little further afield to come across the bustling city of Exeter, where a plethora of activities await, such as touring the stunning cathedral, hiking through Barley Valley Nature Reserve, and visiting Crealy Theme Park, to name a few!

Spend some time on the coast and visit Exmouth, a port town with a stunning harbour, Blue Flag beach and access to the Devon Cliffs trails, along with the fantastic attractions of A la Ronde, Exmouth Museum and boat trips to Starcross.

Make the most of your location and visit the vast Dartmoor National Park with its astounding sights and outdoor activities or embark on a hike along the South West Coastal Path to discover more beautiful beaches and coastal resorts.

About the location


Exeter 8.5 miles.

A busy market town 8.5 miles north west of the cathedral city of Exeter, and situated in an area of Devon known as “Red Devon” so called because of the distinctive red soil which is of prime agricultural quality, and excellent for growing swedes. This is a rural area of Devon which is tranquil, unspoilt and where ruby cattle are seen grazing amongst the rolling green meadows. There are many scattered villages with welcoming inns, well stocked farm shops and friendly locals. Crediton has a wide range of shops selling gifts and groceries, a fabulous farmers’ market, modern leisure centre and plenty of family friendly pubs. Crediton is less than 10 miles from Dartmoor National Park which provides excellent walking and horse riding opportunities and a half hour drive from the beautiful city of Exeter where there are theatres, stunning cathedral, shopping malls, and historic quay with waterfront cafes, antique shops and bars.
