What we love

I chose this property for its hilltop position and the panoramic views from the balcony will take your breath away. I can imagine sitting here with a glass of wine and watching the sun set.

These two stunning properties, The Pottery (ref UK12456) Backswood Cottage (ref UK12457), are situated in an exceptional bolthole on the owners’ working farm. Backswood Farm Cottages are set high up above the River Exe as it winds through the beautiful hills and woodland between Tiverton and Exeter in unspoilt rural Devon. Discover more about the farm and its conservation plans and explore this amazing place.

The Pottery (ref UK12456) is one special part of a wonderful wider vision that the owners of Backswood Farm have been working towards, making this a unique place to stay. This semi-detached cottage has been lovingly designed and furnished as a place to truly relax in. There is a wood burner (all the wood is provided for you), a deep sofa and comfortable armchair. Upstairs, a truly luxurious bedroom is equipped with a kingsize bed and a superb shower room, and outside a garden bench provides the ideal place from which to take in the stunning views of the surrounding countryside.

Backswood Cottage (ref UK12457) is an absolute celebration of its setting at Backswood, and enjoys panoramic views from the deck and the balcony which will take your breath away. The cottage has a perfect balance of warmth, style and luxury. The living room has deep comfortable sofas and a wood burner, and the kitchen has a suitably characterful, farmhouse dining table. Quite apart from being a beautiful property, Backswood Cottage makes the most of the stunning views from the sweeping valley in front of it with the large ground floor patio and the stunning first floor balcony. Whatever the time of day or time of year, the views and the unique glimpses of wildlife from your own vantage point will delight you. The cottage is as at the far end of the farmstead so you will feel very private.

The River Exe winds along at the bottom of the valley and tracks will take you through untouched ancient woodland, and the top fields will give you views for miles. You can walk to Tiverton along the river. There is a new conservation area underway (working progress) which you are welcome to explore. See the wildflower meadow or try to catch a dragonfly over the pond, this is the perfect for wildlife photographers, walkers, cyclists and many other hobbies. There is also a shared shepherd’s hut/summerhouse, overlooking the pond, which can be used by both properties. Beach 25 miles. Shop 2½ miles, pub and restaurant 2 miles.
These properties can be booked together to accommodate up to 6 guests.
