Kintyre Cottage sleeps six guests and sits within the extensive grounds of the owners racing stables, amongst the beautiful rolling Blackdown Hills in Devon. With racehorses being trained on-site, Kintyre Cottage offers guests a unique experience where they can enjoy a yard tour and watch the racehorses being trained on the gallops.
The cottage affords its own private position and has been well designed to sensitively fit amongst its country and stable yard setting. It offers a high degree of comfort and provides stylish pet-friendly self-catering accommodation - you can even take your dog for a run on the fenced gallops once the horses have finished their exercise. The open plan kitchen/diner offers an impressive range of appliances nicely finished with granite work tops and the lounge provides a relaxed setting with its soft leather sofas and French doors letting the outside in. Upstairs there are three bedrooms, each with their own unique character offering quality mattresses to ensure a good night sleep.
You don't have to be a horse or racing enthusiast to gain a great deal of pleasure from watching the stable hands attend to their daily chores and the horses head off for their morning gallop - a fantastic experience that the whole family will enjoy.
