Overview

Photos and Description of this Exeter holiday cottage

Fully equipped 17c barn conversions - family and pet friendly

Nestled in the middle of rolling Devon countryside and on the edge of Dartmoor National Park, East Underdown is the perfect place for a family holiday or a quiet romantic getaway. The three cottages were converted from 17c barns. Walkers enjoy a choice of trails within minutes of the cottages. For families, there is much to do within a short drive. While we enjoy the peacefulness of the countryside, we are three miles from the A30 and very accessible to the rest of the South West. All guests have unlimited access (8a-10p) to our indoor, heated pool with current machine and sauna. There is a fenced, green play space for children, and even big kids enjoy our games room with a snooker table, darts, table tennis, table football. The cottages have their own private patios with picnic tables and barbecues.

Great Cleave (4 bedrooms) sleeps 8

Little Cleave (2 bedrooms) sleeps 4

Old Orchard (2 bedrooms) sleeps 4

Old Orchard is a home away from home for a couple looking for a romantic getaway or a family. It sleeps four.

All of the modern conveniences have been added to make this the ideal place to relax in the serenity of the Devon countryside.

Dartmoor National Park is one of the last wilderness areas of Britain -- moorland landscape, wild ponies, ancient settlements -- great walks. Also easy access to Exmoor, and either the rugged seascapes of North Devon and Cornwall or the milder Channel shores of South Devon. 3 miles from Chagford (old town known for its shopping and nearby walks), 10 from Exeter, 8 from Okehampton. We are within 10 miles of three 18 hole golf courses including Bovey Castle. Only an hour from the Eden Project. Children love the Miniature Pony Centre at Moretonhampstead (5 miles) and the House of Marbles at Bovey Tracey (12 miles). Five minutes from the last castle built in England -- Castle Drogo. 13 miles from Exeter and Exeter University.

On a typical day at East Underdown you could talk a short walk up the road to the ancient stones of Spinster's Rock, lunch at one of the many local pubs, relax with a swim and sauna before cuddling up by the wood burner (or hanging out on the private patio).
