About Apple Loft at Twistgates Farm CottagesRomantic Retreat in the Blackdown Hills with lovely country views
Apple Loft is a very chic romantic bolthole with lovely tree top views over the surrounding Devonshire hills. Surrounded by an area of outstanding natural beauty, where the sense of peace and tranquillity is a far cry from the pace of modern living, Apple Loft is easily reached by one of the main routes into the West Country and is perfect for short breaks or longer holidays all year round.
The apartment is entered via a ground floor lobby with plenty of storage space and an attractive Victorian washstand. A flight of stairs leads to the open plan apartment above. At one end French windows open onto the glass fronted balcony and the comfy sofa has been positioned to make the most of this stunning view. Space has been set aside for a dining table with ladder back chairs and the contemporary galley kitchen is very well equipped. A fine antique iron bedstead dressed with crisp white linen and a pretty quilt dominate the romantic sleeping area where quirky touches have been included with the boat steps doubling for storage, a vintage leather suitcase holding hangers and, screened for privacy and for the sheer fun of it, a slipper bath to luxuriate in. There is an en-suite bathroom with relaxing rain shower, toilet and basin.
Located in the beautiful Blackdown Hills, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the Jurassic Coast is also within easy reach, just half an hour’s drive away.
At Christmas, New Year and Easter we like to spoil our guests with a few extra treats!

The market town of Honiton is approximately 7 miles west of Upottery. It is dominated by a long straight road built by the Romans and has a history that goes back to medieval times with the Hot Pennies ceremony and Charter Day still being celebrated every July. The town is famous for its lace and pottery and good examples can be found at Allhallows Museum. There are many independently owned shops, restaurants and cafes and the town is especially noted for its antique shops. The former home of the late painter, Thelma Hulbert, is now a public art gallery with exhibitions of contemporary art and craft on show.
