Weathervane Cottage is a former milking parlour that has been converted to provide a lovely holiday cottage whilst retaining character features such as exposed beans and stonework.

The cottage is single storey, with just a small step between the living and sleeping areas. There is a large open-plan reception room with fully-equipped fitted kitchen, a dining area and a lovely seating area set around a wood burning stove. A door leads out from the reception room onto the enclosed patio with garden furniture. Back inside the property, there is a double bedroom with en-suite toilet and basin, a twin bedroom and a single bedroom as well as a shared bathroom with shower over a bath. Weathervane cottage boasts some wonderful views of the private meadow to the front of the property.

Weathervane Cottage is found in a quiet location amongst the Blackdown Hills, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, offering some truly wonderful, unspoilt scenery. The cottage is located just under 5 minutes drive from the A30/A303, one of the main routes into the West Country. Weathervane Cottage offers an idyllic base for exploring Devon as well as the neighbouring counties of Dorset and Somerset; there is some stunning surrounding countryside and the Jurassic Coast is on our doorstep.

We have 2 other cottages (sleeping 2 and 4) and full details can be found on our website.
