There is fun for all the family to enjoy with a well-equipped games room and indoor swimming pool.

Ideal for larger groups, with Crealy Adventure Park close by, and beaches and coastline a short drive away. Long Range is the perfect choice for a family holiday, big reunion, a special celebration, a fun business get-together, a group trip, or a relaxing weekend to recharge your batteries, whatever the reason, the facilities are designed to be perfect for winter and summer holidays. Located in an area of great interest, this delightful house sits on the edge of the quiet rural hamlet of Whimple, yet is just a short drive from the historic town of Ottery St Mary and the cathedral city of Exeter.
The property has a well-equipped kitchen with plenty of cooking facilities, as well as its own bar area with optics. There is a private, indoor, heated swimming pool and a games room with air hockey, table tennis and pool table, which are both accessed from inside the property, ideal if the weather lets you down. Or, relax in the sun room, which has a Xbox, Wii, a children’s play area and doors opening on to the large, private, enclosed garden. Each bedroom has its own TV and most of the rooms are en-suite. The property is attached to the owner’s home (who have their own access) but still remains private. Everything and more has been thought of to offer the perfect location for a fantastic holiday.
There are many places to visit close by, including the amazing Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site, Beer, Sidmouth, Seaton and many National Trust properties. Activities within easy reach include cycling, horse riding and birdwatching. Exeter’s 2000 year old history is reflected in its heritage attractions, such as the Gothic cathedral and the Roman city wall. Explore beneath the city’s streets at Exeter’s underground passages. Go Ape at Haldon is a great day out, as well as the many walks and cycle paths in the area. Dartmoor with it ponies and small villages, tors and shops makes for a fantastic day for the outdoor enthusiast. For those wishing to enjoy a more adrenaline-charged holiday, the brilliant Ashcombe Adventure Centre offers quad bike safaris, clay pigeon shooting, archery, paintballing and much more. Devon has so much to offer, 1 week is never enough. Beach 9 miles. Shop, pub and restaurant 1½ miles.

    Our family have holidayed together over many years and believe Long Range to be by far the best house we have stayed in. The facilities both inside and out are exceptional and of very high standard, particularly the swimming pool and games area. The accommodation is clean and comfortable. Whether you are young or old ( our ages ranged from 9 - 85 yrs ) and irrespective of the weather, Long Range is an outstanding holiday home. Our one complaint, seven days are not long enough!

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; We really appreciate your lovely comments and hope to see you again in the future.

    Loved the concept of the house. The swimming pool, the games room and the play kitchen for my 3 yr old grandson were all amazing, however the house still needs work .

    We were a family of 15, 8 adults and 7children. Our age rangewas70 to 3. There was everything there to accommodate everyone. The house is spacious, has lots of different rooms to choose to sit and relax in. Outside different sitting areas so you can have a quiet moment and be amongst the throng. We are hoping to return next year as there were lots of places in the area we didn’t get to see as we just relaxed a lot of the time around the house.

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thank you for your kind comments, we look forward to seeing you again soon.

    This Cottage was perfect for our family of 13 holiday. We had a nice welcome of scones and clotted cream, chocolate cake, fruit and milk. The swimming pool was amazing and the games room was also put to good use. There was easy access to Exeter and Honiton but we were happy to be at Long Range most of the holiday. There was plenty of space for all young and old.

    Our family holiday, spanning three generations, was very enjoyable and our week was too short to include all the things we wanted to do in the area and using the facilities of the property which the young generation loved. We loved the space the accommodation provided and especially the pool and games room. We all found the beds and bedrooms very comfortable. The owner was extremely helpful and friendly, we would definitely consider returning in the future. Everything was great and there are only two things that would make the property better still. The first was the limitation of not being able to use the pool after 7.00 pm, unless prearranged with the owner, because on holiday we don't pre-plan what we want to do , we like to decide as we go. The second is we did find the dining area a long way from the kitchen, especially when catering for a large number.
