This cottage has been converted from the end of the owner's’ oak-framed barn at the end of a no through lane on the edge of Upton Pyne.
With lovely views over the Exe Valley as far as the Killerton estate, this is a great base for anyone in need of some rest and relaxation in beautiful surroundings.
Take a couple of steps up into the spacious kitchen, well equipped with a dining area, then head on upstairs to your fabulous airy sitting room under the eaves with its elm floor and cosy wood burning stove.
On a sunny day, open the French windows to the balcony where you can admire those views over Devon countryside.
A couple of steps take you down to the two bedrooms sharing a smart family shower room.
Wander down the gravel path to your outdoor seating area where you can eat alfresco, or you are welcome to enjoy the owners’ garden where hens and cats roam free.
For a refreshing drink or delicious meal, a footpath will lead you to a good pub in less than a mile.
The National Trust house and garden at Killerton are spectacular, or head to Dartmoor to admire some natural beauty.

The Woodshed is in a brilliant central location for coast, countryside and city or for simply chilling out.

About the location
Exeter is a lively city in south Devon with a magnificent cathedral, historic quayside area with artisan shops and cafes, guided tours of the maze of underground passages and a wealth of bars, shops and restaurants. There is a good choice of excellent museums tracing the city’s lengthy history including an interesting medieval building The Tucker’s Hall, built for the Company of Weavers, Tuckers and Shearman which houses exceptional carved panelling, rare silver and a 4 feet long pair of fulling shears. Nearby Parliament Street claims to be the world’s narrowest street – less than 25 inches at its narrowest. The gatehouse and tower of Rougemont castle still stand in the city, surrounded by Rougemont gardens with a backdrop of Roman wall ruins - a tranquil haven. Exeter’s one time importance as a port is reflected in the Custom House, now the centrepiece of the Quayside, a fascinating complex of antique shops and cafes. Within a 15 minute drive of the city, there are some fabulous beaches at Sidmouth and Exmouth, and the start of the 95 mile stretch of Jurassic Coast, all of which provide ample opportunities for relaxation, sport and exploration. Exeter is an ideal south Devon base from which to explore pretty countryside and Heritage Coast.
