What we love

I chose this property because along with its neighbour, The Dairy, it offers a truly unique holiday setting with stunning views but just a short drive into the bustling city of Exeter.


A luxurious holiday retreat with stunning far-reaching views, ideally located for days at the beach and exploring Dartmoor and the surrounding areas.

All on the ground floor.
Open plan living space.
Living area:
With wood burner, Freeview TV, DVD player and patio doors leading to garden.
Dining area: With patio doors leading to garden.
Kitchen area: With electric oven, gas hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and washer/dryer.
Bedroom 1: With double bed, Freeview TV and en-suite with walk-in shower and toilet.
Bedroom 2: With twin beds and Freeview TV.
Bathroom: With shower over bath, toilet and heated towel rail.

Private parking for 2 cars.

Both properties: Underfloor gas central heating, gas, electricity, bed linen, towels and Wi-Fi included. Initial logs for wood burner included. Travel cot and highchair available on request. Welcome pack. Lawned garden with decked sitting-out area and garden furniture. 50-acres of unspoilt natural grounds and woodland with 2 gas BBQs (shared with the owners). Bike store. No smoking. Please note: There are 4 steps with ramp access to the garden.

A luxurious holiday retreat at any time of year, The Dairy (UKC2093 and a Visit England ROSE award winner in 2018) and Piglet Cottage (UKC3481) are the perfect choice for family, friends and couples wanting to relax and enjoy the peace and tranquillity in this stunning location. Converted to a very high standard, with floor-to-ceiling windows that maximise the breathtaking views over Exeter, surrounding countryside and down as far as the coast. The owners’, who live on site, have thought of everything to make your stay a memorable one, with underfloor heating, a cosy wood burner to relax beside on a chilly evening, Egyptian cotton bed linen and sliding doors that lead to a decked area where you can enjoy an al fresco supper and take in the views. These two detached, single-storey properties really will take some beating when it comes to the perfect holiday property.
Dartmoor and the popular south coast is within easy reach, and the rural countryside of East Devon is on the doorstep, making The Dairy and Piglet Cottage an ideal base from which to explore some of Devon’s finest scenery. The city of Exeter is just 2 miles away, with its university and famous 13th-century cathedral. Killerton House has a glorious landscaped garden which is surrounded by parkland, a fine 18th-century house with renowned historical fashion collections, and wide open parkland with a garden full of trees from around the globe.
There are many lovely walks and bridle paths to enjoy through the owners’ 50-acres of pasture and woodland. One walk will take you to the pretty village of Newton St Cyres with its cosy gastro pub and brewery with a covered balcony, tiered garden and a menu of global food. Golf, fishing and riding are available locally, and for family fun, Crealy Great Adventure Park and Go Ape Forest Adventure are close by. From sleepy market towns to miles and miles of coastline, which is much loved by surfers, swimmers, families and walkers, this stunning location has something for everyone. Beach 17 miles. Shop, pub and restaurant 2 miles.
These properties can be booked together to accommodate up to 10 guests.

    The cottage was lovely but mention should be made in the description of the 3 mile single track road leading to it. We did visit in winter and the track was very muddy, unfortunately there was an ambulance visiting a house on one day and absolutely no way to pass (possibly a different route for instances like this could be entered in the details) we were on holiday so sitting, waiting was really not too much of a problem. Mention should also be made of the two steps up to the barn where rubbish was left. This proved difficult as the steps were steep and didn’t feel too secure - no hand rail. Possibly the switch in the hall that turns on the outside lights should be marked. There was no way to see if the outside light was on and although it was kind of the owner to text me to tell me it wouldn’t have happened if I’d known which switch was which. The front door was also very difficult to lock so, again, possibly repair. The views were outstanding and the owners pleasant.

    We had a fantastic week in piglet cottage. From the warm welcome, the spectacular views and every home from home comfort you could ask for it was just ideal! Everything was catered for from soap, towels, salt & pepper, tea, sugar, coffee machine and coffee, hair dryer wood for the fire etc. We had mixed weather which meant we enjoyed everything the cottage had to offer as it really is somewhere you’d be happy not to leave, especially with the wood burning fire crackling away. This cottage is off the beaten track and a true little hideaway hidden up a country lane, yet easily accessible. The welcome pack was greatly appreciated, with scones, clotted cream, milk & jam, elderflower presse, plus fresh flowers. Just what you needed after a long journey and a perfect offering from the area.
