Step out of the kitchen-area, straight onto the beautiful patio, and prepare to be greeted by the most stunning surroundings.
The perfect area for sitting back and enjoying the beautiful surroundings.

How about relocating the patio furniture around this spectacular fire-pit to make the most of the sun going down, and stars coming out.
The fully enclosed garden.
Spacious and well-equipped kitchen. Perfect for catering for those special occasions.
The sitting-room has a very inviting wood-burner for those colder evenings.

The cottage was great, very clean and comfortable. My children loved the place.

Lovely well equipped cottage in nice surroundings. We had a relaxing family holiday in a safe environment for 3 year old and dog.The garden and patio area are just right for a stroll and enjoying views of the orchard. Having a pony and sheep to see was an added bonus.

Superb cottage! Spacious, comfortable and clean and in a pretty, quiet village. We loved it here and didn’t want to leave. Would definitely recommend!

February 2019

We absolutely loved staying at this property. The house was well equipped and comfortable and plenty of space for two families. The boys loved the little playroom and running around the garden. They were also amused by the guinea fowl who loved pecking at the windows each morning! Location was perfect to explore North and South Devon. We would love to stay there again.

The Orchard is in an ideal location for us visiting family. It is a spacious, well equipped house in a quiet area with a lovely open outlook at the back and large patio & garden area. Exbourne is a nice quiet, friendly village and The Burrow, which is an easy walk from The Orchard, stocks a good range of foodstuffs, which means you don't always have to travel to a bigger town to get supplies.

Highly recommend. Superb property. Well equipped. Nice location. Would certainly return.

October 2017

A beautiful and modern property well located on the edge of a quiet village. The owners/managers are nearby and on hand if needed, but in no way intrusive. A third or bigger sofas would benefit any larger groups staying at the property although this wasn't a problem for us as couple. We would be more than happy to return and to recommend to friends/family.

Very spacious and well equipped house in a lovely part of Devon. The garden is enclosed but not completely dog secure. There is a lot of early morning noise from a cockerel and some guinea fowl.

Thanks for your review of The Orchard and we're so pleased you enjoyed your time in this part of Devon. The garden is enclosed on all sides, but we think it's best not to claim any garden as completely dog proof as there are some mischievous characters out there that can get in or out of anything! The owners do keep some poultry and a little pony in a neighbouring paddock as shown in our photos - unfortunately cockerels can be early risers but this is part of the charm of rural life.

Beautiful spacious home with a large garden, very comfortable and in a sweet little village. The village shop is friendly and welcoming. The owner Jocelyn was really nice.

The owners should be proud of this property which was ideal for our large family of 7. Everybody enjoyed their stay here.
