This cottage is an absolute celebration of its setting at Backswood, a working farm where the Owners have a truly special conservation vision for this rural haven in mid-Devon's unspoilt countryside. From its hilltop position, the panoramic views from the deck and the balcony will take your breath away. This semi-detached cottage has a perfect balance of warmth, style and luxury. The sitting-room has deep comfortable sofas and a wood-burning stove (all the wood is provided) and the kitchen has a suitably characterful farmhouse dining-table. One of the two spacious bedrooms is on the ground floor, with a fabulous en suite and glass doors to the decking; the other bedroom, also with a gorgeous en suite, opens onto the balcony.
Quite apart from being a beautiful property, Backswood Cottage makes the most of the sweeping valley in front of it with the large ground floor deck and the stunning first floor balcony. Whatever the time of day or time of year, the views and the unique glimpses of wildlife from your own vantage point will delight you. The cottage is at the far end of the farmstead and so you will feel very private but of course you are invited to discover more about the farm and its conservation plans and to explore this amazing place. The River Exe winds along at the bottom of the valley, tracks will take you through untouched ancient woodland and the top fields will give you views for miles. The Owners are creating a unique resource here and plan to offer bespoke conservation courses and you too will have every opportunity to take on board all that this wonderful farm is about.
