    “We recently had the pleasure of staying for a week at Figtree Cottage, Devon during December 2020.”

    From the outset, the communication from Ali & Dave was on point. It was especially reassuring to receive a courtesy call from Ali prior to our stay which alleviated any queries or concerns we may have had around travelling to the property, or during our stay. ...

    From the outset, the communication from Ali & Dave was on point. It was especially reassuring to receive a courtesy call from Ali prior to our stay which alleviated any queries or concerns we may have had around travelling to the property, or during our stay. The property was easily found with the directions provided by both Sykes and Ali. Upon arrival we were able to let ourselves in and get settled before Dave popped over to introduce himself and see if we needed anything. Ali & Dave reside in the premises just a stones throw away from the cottage which meant they were on hand for all our requests but far enough to ensure privacy and serenity. The cottage itself is situated away from the main road which means it's peaceful and quiet. The kitchen was already very well equipped however we did make a few requests that Ali & Dave we happy to oblige; notably the sharpening of the kitchen knives - thanks Dave! All bedrooms and bathrooms were very clean and furnished with quality fittings; the towels in the bathrooms were lush and the shower pressure is superb. The beds themselves were also very comfy. The loungeroom has an abundance of couches which ensured we weren't sitting on top of each other, as well as a fantastic fireplace which was lovely to start in the early evening and keep on until late. That said, the property is well heated anyway should we have preferred that form of heating. Without a doubt one of the main highlights was that hot tub - which we made use of everyday - and Dave ensured that the chemicals were just right throughout our entire stay; Dave would pop over in the morning to top-up and we hardly noticed he'd been and gone. We had an amazing stay at the cottage and really enjoyed what the surrounding area had to offer. Both Ali & Dave are really lovely people which just adds to making the whole experience perfect from start to finish. By the end of our stay we really didn't want to leave, however it's nice to know that we have something to look forward to upon returning again in the hopefully not too distant future.

The property

Bickleigh 1 mile.

Figtree Cottage is situated on the steep slopes overlooking the stunning Exe Valley in Mid Devon.

A wooden construction by Swedish experts, this detached Devon cottage sits on the site of an old sheep shearing shed.

The cottage is in a peaceful rural location, a mile from the noted beauty spot of Bickleigh.

On the grounds of the owners' farmhouse, Fig Tree Cottage has its own private driveway, with far-reaching, stunning, countryside views and spacious rooms, ideal for a family looking to enjoy a cottage holiday in Devon.

There is a sitting room with lovely oak floor, warming wood-burning stove and large TV with surround sound.

The kitchen/dining room is a bright, sunny room overlooking the picturesque garden.

In this Devon cottage, there are also four large, beautifully furnished bedrooms, one en-suite, with two further bathrooms situated over the ground and first floors, for convenience.

The large, private garden at your Devon cottage is a perfect place to enjoy the panoramic views on a summer's day.

The garden is west-facing and during the summer months the sunsets are breath-taking.

Even in peak summertime this part of Mid Devon is tranquil and quiet.

A walk up the lane reveals a different, but equally stunning, view from every gateway.

Just one mile down the lane from the cottage, is Bickleigh Mill, a historic water mill, café and gift shop, where you can spend the day dining alfresco by the River Exe.

The cottage is situated within easy driving distance of both Dartmoor and Exmoor National Parks.

Visit one of the many National Trust houses in the area surrounding your Devon cottage, or visit the small market town of Tiverton nearby.

Explore the historic city of Exeter with its impressive cathedral, excellent shopping malls, galleries, bars and restaurants.

The cottage is midway between Devon’s two coastlines, convenient for a day out to either.

A stay at this well-appointed Bickleigh cottage will certainly be a Devon family holiday to remember.

About the location


Tiverton 4 miles; Exeter 12 miles.

One of Devon’s most photographed villages with its thatched cottages and lovingly tended gardens, Bickleigh is in a beautiful riverside setting in the rich agricultural area of the Exe Valley. Bickleigh’s unique five-arched bridge has spanned the River Exe since 1630 and is reputedly the inspiration for Simon & Garfunkel’s “Bridge over Troubled Water”. Bickleigh Mill is an historic 18th century working mill now developed into a popular and exciting rural shopping, eating and recreational destination where visitors can relax by the river. Railway enthusiasts will enjoy the Devon Railway Centre and Model World housed in the Victorian station buildings, with fifteen different working model layouts and train rides on a narrow gauge line. The town of Tiverton is just 4 miles away while a little further is the historic, cathedral city of Exeter.
