The historic estate of Cadhay lies within the parish of Ottery St Mary, in the county of Devon. The rivers Otter and Tale both run past holiday cottages in Cadhay, and into the surrounding countryside. With the wild wooded valleys, rugged heathland and the stunning coast of the East Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty on the village’s doorstep, it is the perfect destination for a holiday in the Southwest. At the heart of the estate, Cadhay House is a listed Elizabethan mansion house, set around a central courtyard, with magnificent grounds. Just south of your holiday cottage in Cadhay, Ottery St Mary is a pretty East Devon village, best known as the birthplace of the Romantic poet, Samuel Taylor Coleridge. The village is famous for its abundance of historic architecture, with more than 100 listed buildings. Look out for St Mary’s Church, which features one of England’s oldest surviving mechanical clocks, and wander along the riverbank, where otters are often spotted. The majestic cliffs and sandy beaches of the Jurassic Coast, and the windswept moorland and river valleys of Dartmoor, are a short drive from Cadhay.
Cadhay is an exquisitely-appointed Tudor manor set on acres of beautiful grounds in Ottey St Mary, Devon. The grand, pet-friendly manor invites celebration and boasts a lake, multiple outdoor areas, period furnishings, numerous sitting rooms with wood burner, a games room and unique rural character.
