Description

In 6-acres of woodland, ideal for nature lovers, with badgers, deer and birds regularly seen, and a network of footpaths through the woods.

Slowpool is a detached period property which has been extended to provide spacious accommodation for a large family or friends - who want to holiday together or have a special occasion to celebrate. It occupies a very rural setting at the end of a track in a 6-acre wood, 3 miles south of Honiton. The wood is a haven for wildlife with regular sighting of badgers, deer and an abundance of birds. There is a network of footpaths in the woods for guests to use at their leisure. The coast of Sidmouth is a mere 20-minute drive.
This is a superb house with total privacy; it has been decorated and furnished to a very high standard and boasts two wood burners, together with many original features and even a hot tub. The ground floor bedroom and the kitchen/breakfast room both have a window seat looking out to the grounds. The kitchen also features granite worktops and a large island with stools.
For walkers and bird-watchers, this really is the most suitable accommodation. There are so many walks to enjoy from the front door.
Many activities are available in the area including golf, fishing, horse riding and sailing. There are also numerous NT properties - all within a short drive. Exmouth is close by and has a lovely 2-mile stretch of beach and was once home to the wives of Nelson and Byron respectively, whilst a bit further on lies the genteel town of Budleigh Salterton with its white-washed and thatched cottages which attracted such visitors as Noel Coward and PG Wodehouse. At Exeter, the South West Coastal Path Park is an ideal family day out. Exmoor National Park is also worth a visit, with its rugged landscape and ponies. Shops and pubs 3 miles.

    Access to the cottage is along some of Devons worst lanes, steep, narrow, no passing bays and have not been repaired in years. Slowpool is delightful, suggest 4x4 to combat Devons lanes (farm track to cottage is fine).

    Have experienced better value for money elsewhere. Not much in terms of swing for children and the hot tub is unavailable for some periods.
