About & Contact

Sleeps 6 in 3 ensuite bedrooms with stunning views

Thatched comfortably sleeps six in three en suite bedrooms and features a stunning large open plan kitchen/living /dining room with a woodburning stove (logs, eco firelighters, kindling and matches provided) and far reaching views of the East Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

*With our Master Cancel policy, you can cancel for any reason at any time from 60 days up to 2 days prior to the start of your booking and receive a full refund of all monies paid. Higher Wiscombe extends this cancellation policy to apply to from the date of booking to to 61 days prior to your arrival. This does not cover you for the two days prior to arrival, so we still recommend Travel Insurance, to cover that period just in case.

There is underfloor heating and double-glazing throughout, making it warm in winter with the slate floors keeping it cool in summer. It has a private garden with hardwood garden furniture, and in the summer months a Weber gas barbecue, (clean and ready for use, with tools and gas provided). The oak and granite farmhouse-style kitchen area is extremely well equipped, with a range cooker with gas hob and electric oven, large fridge/freezer, dishwasher, Dualit Toaster, microwave, and washing machine. The sitting area and kitchen have slate floors and large squashy sofas to relax into. There is a games room and in the summer an outdoor heated pool. EV Charging is available onsite and is included in the price. The cottage is part thatched in the traditional manner, and part slate roofed. The bedrooms are carpeted, and are furnished to a very high standard, all having underfloor heating. The living/dining room and bedrooms all feature vaulted ceilings with exposed beams. One bedroom has a four-poster 5ft double bed, with an en suite bathroom with luxurious roll-top bath. Both the other bedrooms can either be a 6ft wide double or 3ft twins, both having en suite shower rooms. There is also a separate cloakroom adjacent to the main living area and a tumble dryer in the boiler room. We can provide cots (not bed linen), high chairs (two types) and stairgates. We are within easy reach of Waitrose, Sainsbury’s and Tesco and many good local food shops, and can also accept Waitrose, Tesco and Sainsbury’s deliveries if required. Both on our website and upon arrival you are provided with a guide on local restaurants, where to buy local food, local takeaways and a full local information pack.
