This is an exceptional bolthole in a farmstead setting, shared with the friendly Owners, high up above the River Exe as it winds through the beautiful hills and woodland between Tiverton and Exeter in unspoilt rural Devon. The Pottery is one special part of a wonderful wider vision that the Owners of Backswood Farm have been working towards, making this a unique place to stay. This semi-detached cottage has an open plan ground floor which has been lovingly designed and furnished as a place to truly relax. There is a wood-burning stove (all the wood is provided for you), a deep sofa and comfortable armchair. Upstairs a truly luxurious bedroom is equipped with a king-size bed and a superb shower-room, and outside a garden bench provides the ideal place from which to take in the stunning views of the surrounding countryside.
There is an incredible vision at Backswood Farm where the Owners manage several hundred acres with a great commitment to promoting land and wildlife conservation alongside best practice in farming. From this secluded hilltop setting you are invited to explore the land that spreads out before you. There are large untouched areas of ancient woodland, riverside meadows and footpaths with panoramic views. There is even a dedicated field sown with meadow flowers to complement the work that is planned for the little education centre that the Owners have created. Whatever you wish to do during your holiday, you have a gorgeous cottage to return to after a day out exploring – it is a stylish but very welcoming base where every attention to detail has been considered.
