Meadow Cottage has views across the fields towards the village of Upottery. Formerly the dairy it is now a very comfortable and well-appointed beamed holiday cottage with some exposed stonework. It’s a good self-catering choice for holidaying with family or friends as it has en-suite facilities and a separate bathroom.
Within just minutes of leaving one of the main routes into the South West, you swap the pressures of everyday life for a gentler more relaxed pace found in the little known beautiful Blackdown Hills, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty located in East Devon - a place where tranquil countryside, superb walking and locally produced foods are plentiful.
From here it is easy to discover the many attractions on offer in Devon, nearby Dorset and also Somerset which include beachcombing at Sidmouth, fossil hunting on the Jurassic coast at Lyme Regis, many National Trust properties and beautiful gardens in the area and the historic cathedral city of Exeter to name just a few. For those who enjoy walking the area offers plenty of choices from gentle strolls directly from the front door to more challenging all day hikes - why not explore the South Coastal Path, Dartmoor or Exmoor - all within easy reach by car.
Twistgates Farm offers three pretty beamed self-catering cottages (Meadow Cottage is featured in this advert) each with a wood burner for extra cosiness all year round. Apple Loft is a one bed stylish apartment just for couples and the twin bedded ground floor bedroom in Orchard Bedroom Annex can be rented on a nightly basis (please see the owner's website) for visitors or guests who do not want to share a cottage.
