Help and Advice:

There is a welcome book filled with useful local information.

If you would like a supermarket delivery Sainbury's, and Tesco delivery to the cottage. 


Our country cottage is located mid way between the cathedral city of Exeter and Cullompton and therefore a mere 10 minutes drive from M5 junction 28.  Our location makes us popular with business guests and also holiday makers who are looking to explore our diverse county.  The sandy beaches of the south coast such as Exmouth are a short drive alternatively head to the north coast beaches such as Woolacombe which are always popular with surfers.  The National Trust's Killerton House is only a couple of miles away in Broadclyst.  Families are spoilt for choice but tend to love exploring Diggerland, Quad World and Crealy Adventure Park.
