This beautiful luxury hideaway is perfect for that long-awaited escape to the country. The Old Stables is a charming rural retreat, offering everything you could wish for from a romantic or relaxing break. With the icing on the cake being the close proximity to the spectacular east Devon coast; Sidmouth, Exmouth and the glorious Cathedral City of Exeter being just a few of the rather special 'must visit' places, and all just a short car journey away.
The cottage itself is styled with the ultimate comfort in mind, each room offering a vast amount of space and grandeur and finished to exceptional standards, offering comfort and style at every turn.
The comfy sofas and glowing wood-burning stove make snuggling up of an evening so easy to do, or perhaps popping out onto your enclosed patio-area with a glass of something tasty to watch the sun go down sounds more like it!
Start the day in a lazy way, a touch of TV in bed, complemented by a cup of coffee, sounds perfect! Then head out in any direction, whichever way you venture, you're guaranteed to quickly arrive at one of east Devon's much-loved hot spots.
This beautifully converted cottage is attached to the owners' main house which is set neatly and thoughtfully on the border of their working farm. The super-friendly owners live on site and are happy to be on hand at anytime to help you plan that 'perfect day out'. However, if peace and privacy is what you seek, let yourself into this beautiful cottage and prepare to be wowed, rejuvenated, and relaxed within hours.
If you can tear yourselves away from this most relaxing of holiday homes, a short drive will take you to the unspoilt pebble beach at Budleigh Salterton - a real favourite that is never too crowded.
Exploring along the coast offers you wide sandy beaches at Exmouth, the Regency town of Sidmouth and the historic fishing villages of Branscombe and Beer. Beyond that but a very easy drive away is Lyme Regis with its famous harbour wall - The Cobb.
Head towards the Roman city of Exeter and you will find the delightful riverside town of Topsham with gorgeous shops, cafes and restaurants - as well as a ferry across the Exe to the lovely walks alongside the Exeter canal - ending at the much-loved Turf Hotel for a lunch with a view!
Not forgetting that you have the especially popular Dart Farm within 30 minutes from your doorstep - voted the UK's best farm shop and packed with treats to take home for a real feast to celebrate your holiday.
Or finish your holiday off with a visit to National Trust Killerton House, this beautiful house is within a seven mile drive and offers stunning gardens, cafe and a restaurant, just the ticket for a relaxing and tranquil day out in this stunning part of the world.
All this and much more awaits, enjoy!
