  • About the property

    One of three holiday cottages at the site, White Cross Cottage is a 300-year-old property adjoining the owners’ home with entirely private access. Enjoy a cosy living room with a wood-burning stove, a delightful garden room with exceptional countryside views and a private hot tub to soak in after a day of exploring the many picturesque walking routes nearby. Should you wish to venture further afield, day trips to the cathedral city of Exeter and the famous Jurassic Coast are only a short drive away.

  • The space

    This beautiful, 300-year-old cottage is adorned with period-style features, ancient wooden beams and vaulted ceilings. Step inside the hallway that features original flagstone floors, while the ceilings are low (at some points giving 5ft 7” of headroom).

    Continue into the country-style kitchen/dining room, where you will find all you need to prepare delicious feasts or snacks. The four-seater dining table is the perfect place to gather for a continental breakfast and a cup of coffee to start the morning right.

    Venture into the living room where you will find a comfortable space to relax and unwind. Nestle into the plush L-shaped sofa, wiggle your toes beside the log-burning stove or enjoy a movie marathon on the Smart TV, complete with a full Sky package including movies, sports and children’s programmes.

    Through the living room is a stunning garden room, complete with additional space to wine and dine and a two-seater sofa. When the sun is shining, open the patio doors and immerse yourself in your favourite book or simply admire the delightful views of the garden and beyond.

    The first floor is complete with a beautifully decorated single bedroom with the option of an additional single bed if required.

    Upstairs you will find the master bedroom. This characterful room features a king-size bed and far-reaching views across the garden. Meanwhile, a 4ft 5” high doorway leads to the modern en-suite shower room.

    Head outside to the private courtyard garden, fully enclosed so your four-legged can roam freely. Enjoy soaking in the bubbling hot tub or tucking into an alfresco feast, courtesy of the charcoal BBQ.
