  • “The cottage is absolutely fabulous, very well equipped, lovely furnishings and very clean.”

    The cottage had so much character but with a modern twist. WiFi and phone signal is not great. The only downside would be how isolated it is, roads are very small leading to the cottage but you definitely get the peace and quiet. All in all a very comfortable, clean, homely place to stay.

The property

This thatched detached house is located in countryside 2½ miles from Sandford.

Dating from the 16th century and Grade II listed, it is a beautiful retreat for relaxation and enjoying the lovely rural surroundings.

From the moment you step inside, you will be struck by the history and charm of original features such as panelling, knobbly walls, beams and low doorways.

The kitchen is in good country style with a table for dining and glass doors which can be opened to the garden.

The sitting room is snug and cosy with its wood burning stove in an ancient inglenook.

Head on upstairs to find four bedrooms, all comfortable places to rest.

The sunny patio is ideal for alfresco supper with its lighting, furniture and barbecue, or head up steps to sunbathe on the enclosed lawn.

At the front, the children can run wild and play football in the field.

This is excellent country for the great outdoors, with a path for walking and cycling to the town of Crediton and Dartmoor and the coast at Exmouth within easy reach.

For city lights, head to Exeter where you can admire the cathedral, shop to your heart's’ content and eat like kings.

West Henstill House is a peaceful hideaway for enjoying beautiful countryside and Devon’s delights.
