Rustic games barn (table tennis, table football, snooker table). 4 miles down river from Drewsteignton and great riverside pub. Short walk to Dunsford Nature Reserve at Steps Bridge, spring daffodils, riverside walks to Castle Drogo, birdwatching. Three golf courses within 5 miles. Exeter, 8 miles. Inside, the cottage is Beautifully decorated with all handmade soft furnishings giving the cottage a very homely and welcoming feel. Door into open-plan living/dining room with woodburner, TV/DVD and iPod dock. The kItchen is very well appointed (Nespresso coffee machine, dishwasher, oven, microwave, fridge freezer) with a great range of utensils. Downstairs there is also a smart shower-room (suite). Upstairs, two bedrooms – a pretty double, and another double plus single bed and steep ladder stairs (stairgate) to mezzanine kids play area. Upstairs there is also a stylish family bathroom with bath. Outside there is a large area of communal grass and the cottage also has its own enclosed, fenced lawned, South- facing garden with table and chairs. There is a stocked, well used bird feeder in the garden which you can enjoy the wide range of birds that come to it from the sofa in the lounge or from the garden. In the evenings you can hear the Owls and watch the bats, deer, badgers, and watch the stars in the dark sky. The Teign Valley is one of the best places to watch the stars are there is very little light pollution. We are also lucky enough to have the best wild swimming spot in the south west within walking distance from the cottage. A relaxed, peaceful place to stay and wonderful for anyone with a passion for wildlife. Clifford Barton is a great place for kids who will love all the space and the games room which also has a stage for any budding actors. We are also happy to take dogs (max 2) by prior agreement.More

We stayed in Bridesmere which sleeps 8 and the cottage was fantastic. It was kitted out with all the mod-cons you need, but mixed in with the peace and quiet you so long for. Each room was beautiful with handmade curtains and the beds were...More
