Property Description

Daisy Cottage is a 2 bedroom barn conversion. It is extremely well insulated keeping it cool in summer and warm in winter. The cottage faces south-west and so is in the sun for most of the day.

The ground floor provides a light and airy open-plan living area with a fitted kitchen, dining table and a lounge area with cosy wood burner. Full height windows extend the living space, opening out onto a south-facing patio and graveled courtyard that provide the perfect suntrap from which to enjoy a morning cup of tea or al-fresco dining. The modern bathroom includes a shower over the bath and under floor heating.

Upstairs there are two comfortable bedrooms with exposed beams and stripped wood floors, reflecting the character of the original building. The master bedroom is equipped with a comfortable double divan bed, chest of drawers and wardrobe with space for a travel cot or standard cot which can be supplied on request. There are far reaching views over the surrounding Devon countryside from the master bedroom. The second bedroom is equipped with two full size single divan beds, chest of drawers and wardrobe.

Bed linen and towels included. Electric heating and logs for wood burner included. Space for a cot for additional infant in the double bedroom - please request when booking if required. Highchair and Stair Gate also available on request.

Fantastic getaway

By Evelien L. on 05-Sep-2022

Great getaway for our family, our young boys enjoyed themselves immensely - they loved having swing, slide & trampoline and the views ‘treehouse’ views, as well as having the chickens around in the morning. Daisy Cottage was everything we needed for a wonderful short break to decompress from the city Tony was amazingly responsive and a superb host. I highly recommend it!

Lovely, quaint cottage

By Nikki G on 29-Aug-2022

Quaint little cottage in the beautiful Devonshire countryside. Perfect base for exploring the the surrounding areas, our children loved the outdoor play area and the very friendly chickens! The cottage was clean and comfortable with a nice little welcome pack of treats. Milk in the fridge was a nice touch for a much needed cuppa upon arrival!

Quiet country retreat

By Jennifer P on 14-Aug-2022

The stay at Daisy Cottage was easy and relaxing from the start. In the middle of Devon countryside, it is a quiet spot to use as a base. It is well provided for, with soft towels and milk on arrival for a needed cuppa. WiFi provided, a necessity with older children. Clothes washing facilities in adjacent barn with BBQ also. Owner helpful but not intrusive. A very relaxing time had.
