About Flint at Higher Wiscombe

Flint at Higher Wiscombe is perfect for families and friends. The luxurious barn conversion is in a spectacular location within the beautiful East Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). It sleeps six people in three ensuite bedrooms, with guests also having access to the heated outdoor swimming pool during warmer months, indoor games room and 52-acres of grounds. Flint is one of four superb properties at Higher Wiscombe. Each cottage is completely private and self-contained and can be booked independently or with other properties to sleep up to 32 people. Guests have used the venue for family celebrations, to host guests for a wedding, corporate events, retreats and workshops. Please see the owner's website for details.

Higher Wiscombe is remote and rural, yet only a short drive from the charming town of Honiton. Famed in the past for its high-quality lace, Honiton has an excellent variety of places to eat, drink and shop, including a choice of supermarkets and a regular market three times a week. If you need a wider choice, the cathedral city of Exeter is around half an hour's drive from the cottage. East Devon is famous for the quality of its local produce. You'll find it on the menu at superb restaurants like River Cottage, The Rusty Pig, and the Pig at Combe.

Walking is a favourite way to explore the coast and the countryside. The East Devon Way long-distance footpath goes past Higher Wiscombe, while the South West Coast Path is just a few miles from the cottage as are beaches like Beer, Sidmouth and Biscombe. Surfing, sailing, golf, horse riding and mountain biking are easily accessible within a short drive, as are RSPB reserves, National Trust sites, and Dartmoor National Park. Spend a day exploring the incredible Jurassic Coast, protected as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Lyme Regis and Charmouth are two of the best sites in the UK to find fossils, with both towns having excellent museums dedicated to palaeontology.

You don't have to leave the cottage to have a fantastic holiday. Guests can use the heated outdoor pool in summer, and they have use of the indoor games room all year long. The cottage has a private garden with a lawn, sun terrace, barbecue and garden furniture.
