Farmhouse property located on a 120-acre organic farm with resident turkeys, chickens, cows and sheep, just a short drive from the city of Exeter and the South Devon coast

This characterful property enjoys a tranquil farmland location, just outside the village of Kenn. There are three pubs within walking distance of the property, making it ideal for those who want to take a break from cooking on their holiday. Despite its rural location, the property is actually close to many attractions and interesting towns, including the city of Exeter, which is just six miles north of the property, and the traditional seaside resort of Dawlish, which lies nine miles to the south. Dawlish makes a fantastic place for a day trip, with its sandy beach, shops, restaurants, and the South Devon Railway Line which runs along the Devonshire coast. Also within easy access of the property are the family-friendly attractions of Crealy Adventure Park and Diggerland.

This semi-detached farmhouse property offers comfortable accommodation and sits within the grounds of a working organic farm. On entering the property, guests will find the open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner with its cosy open fire, ornate fireplace, feature wall, comfortable sofa and armchairs, dining table, TV and DVD. The adjacent kitchen area is equipped with everything that guests will need to make themselves at home, including a gas oven, hob, microwave, fridge/freezer and washing machine. If guests require the use of a tumble dryer, this can be arranged with the property’s owners who live just next door. Upstairs there are two bedrooms, both of which enjoy lovely views of the surrounding countryside. The first of these is a double room, whilst the other is a family room with a double bed and a single bed, perfect for younger children to share with their parents. The double room benefits from an en-suite shower room with WC, whilst there is also a bathroom with bath and a separate WC.

Outside, guests can enjoy the use of the private garden with outdoor furniture. In the evenings guests can enjoy a guided tour around the farm, to get a real taste of farming life and to meet the resident animals including turkeys, chickens, cows and sheep. There is ample parking available.

The cottage was beautiful, homely and welcoming, very clean with everything needed for a comfortable and relaxed stay. Our kids & the dog loved our daily walks around the farm (it was good training for the puppy not to bark at the horses, the cows, turkeys and pigs!) and up into the woods. The kids loved feeding the chickens our scraps and we got yRead moreummy, fresh eggs in return. Ruth and Roddy were really welcoming. If you want a lovely, Devonshire escape, this is a great place.

If you like a cottage on a farm, this is a must for you, the owners live next door and are always willing to help or advise if asked. Situated less than a mile from the A38, so convenient if you wish to explore Dartmoor or the rest of Devon. Also an easy one mile walk to the excellent village pub 'The Ley Arms'. We certainly enjoyed our week there.
