Property Description

Buttercup 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 (4ft 6in) pine bed, chest of drawers and wardrobe with space for a travel cot or standard cot which can be supplied on request.

The second bedroom is equipped with a full size single (3ft 6in) pine bed, a small double (4ft) pine bed and chest of drawers.

Cozy cottage

By Shan P on 19-Oct-2021

A lovely cozy cottage in the countryside, very peaceful and a relaxing stay, home from home everything that you needed was there.

A comfortable stay in beautiful surroundings

By Rosemary H on 16-Oct-2021

This is a cosy, well equipped cottage which was very clean on arrival. The outdoor space is just enough for parking and a table, and the view includes a rather unsightly old barn. However, the surrounding countryside is really beautiful and there are walks from the door. Large scale maps are provided, too. Once the lanes have been negotiated, it's easy to reach local attractions by car, and, indeed, by the excellent local bus service ( the 4 and the 20 run along the nearby A35, with links to other buses or the Seaton Tramway.)

Comfy stay

Lovely comfy stay. Good amenities. Lots to read and games to play indoors if weather is bad to go out.
