The Old Dairy is a beautiful detached barn conversion in an utterly tranquil setting on the edge of an orchard.
Inside this cottage is a delight. Beautifully presented to the highest standard, light and airy, very comfortable and equipped as a home-from-home.
Little paths are cut through the orchard in the summertime leading you to wonderful places to sit and take in the surroundings. In the Spring the trees are thick with blossom.
This is the perfect place to simply sit back and feel the calmness all around.
This is a view from the top of the orchard, looking back at the cottage to the right, and the Owner's historic house to the left.
The cottage is single-storey and has accessible access to the front and the rear.
The living area has two lovely deep sofas and French windows out to the patio and garden beyond.
The dining-table is set in one corner of this spacious, high ceilinged open plan room.
You can take your time over lovely holiday suppers with none of life's usual rush.
Cooking up a treat in this extremely well-equipped kitchen with a view across the back of the original farmstead is a treat too.
Perhaps you will be inspired by the Owner's prize winning homemade cream tea - a fabulous treat when you arrive.
This is the master bedroom at one end of the cottage.
You can lie in bed and look out into the orchard and have the French windows wide open to listen to the morning bird song.
Another view of this lovely bedroom.
The en suite for the master bedroom has a bath and a fitted shower. There is also a door to the living room giving extra flexibility for a family.
Another view of the bathroom to show how spacious it is.
At the other end of the cottage is the twin bedroom.  This also has French windows out to the garden.
The twin bedroom has a walk-in shower with just a small lip to the tray.
Stay in the spring and early summer and you will be treated to an amazing display of blossom.
In the late summer and autumn the orchard bears fruit and you will see all the apples!
With the patio at the back of the cottage you will have complete privacy.
The orchard area is just above the cottage and you have some lovely views right over the property to the countryside beyond.
Killerton House and gardens is one of the nearest National Trust properties.
The amazing coastline at Sidmouth, a lovely Regency seaside town.
The long stretch of pebbled beach at Budleigh Salterton.

Lovely owners, the cottage was furnished to a very high standard with everything thought about and provided and excellent attention to detail.

All cleaning products and loo rolls were there and there were lots of tea towels, something that a lot of places forget.

It was the best and most comfortable cottage we have stayed in. The cream tea that was left for us was such a lovely touch as was the milk in the fridge and the biscuits.

We couldn't have been more comfortable. The gardens were a delight to sit in and for the 2 year old to run around in.

This was one of the best Cottages we rent the last years. The Equipment was extraordinary, everything worked fine. It is a very calm Location, and the sound of nature ist gorgious. The owners are very friendly, they are very helpfully. We would recommend this property to all our friends.

Very clean, light and airy cottage. If your looking for a guilt and relaxing Holiday. Lots to do around the area. However you do need your own transport.


February 2016

Although only there for a short stay David and Judith were very welcoming and helpful.


August 2015

Top class accommodation, hidden away in the most peaceful and pretty corner of countryside.


September 2014

We were made to feel very special from the minute we arrived until we left - the premises are very comfortable, clean and well looked after. The location is so peaceful - starting with the morning visits from the pheasants, grouse, bunnies and numerous birds to the evening visits from Honey.

Very good service. Our 5th stay, and always excellent. In all respects an excellent place for a quiet break.


September 2013

A very high standard of accommodation. Peaceful area with very enjoyable walks. Short drives from many places in Devon. The hosts are excellent.
