This beautiful 300 year old detached, thatched, cob cottage is so characterful and charming you won't want to leave. Nestled in the glorious Devon countryside, this gorgeous cottage and its grounds make for a peaceful and restful holiday. Perfect for recharging those batteries and enjoying some quality family time.

The location is very special, not many properties can boast being surrounded by 25 acres of organic 'farm', which is home to a whole host of friendly farmyard animals including chickens, ducks, pigs, cattle and alpacas. The younger members of the party will be in their element and will certainly make some new friends.

Situated only half a mile from Exminster village you have all the amenities, including three welcoming pubs and eateries, within walking distance. However, venturing further afield is a must as this charming cottage is situated perfectly for exploring the West Country and all its hot spots.

Returning to this cottage with its cosy wood-burning stove, thick original cob walls and many other beautifully restored features is the perfect way to end the day.

Getting out and about in this wonderful part of the world is easy. You have Dartmoor within a short car ride, along with the glorious sandy beaches of Exmouth and Dawlish also a short drive away. Or perhaps you fancy sampling city life which the beautiful Cathedral City of Exeter offers in abundance, you can enjoy a spot of shopping followed by fine dining, right on your doorstep.

For the more adventurous, 10 to 15 minutes in the car will find you at Haldon Forest Park which you can cycle or walk through, or should you wish to really go for it, the 'Go Ape' course awaits!

Following any day out, your private garden and summer-house awaits back at Lower Towsington. Spark up the gas barbecue and relax, reflecting on your action-packed day whilst planning tomorrow's adventure.

This beautiful cottage, nestled in this fabulously unspoilt spot, is a wonderful holiday retreat for all; even your four-legged friends will not want to return home.
