Dear Clive & Paula Thank you for having us back for a second visit. It was even better than the last time. We will hopefully see you in the summer. Mark

Enjoy a romantic rural retreat in the beautiful Blackdown Hills of East Devon at Apple Cottage. This charming holiday cottage for couples (with room for an infant) in the peaceful hamlet of Moorhayne near the tranquil village of Yarcombe lies in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, making it popular with those looking for a walking holiday in any season. In spring wander through ancient woods carpeted with bluebells – or return in the autumn when the green leaves of spring have turned to shades of gold.
Before being tastefully restored as a holiday cottage, Apple Cottage was once a cider barn. The old apple press may be long gone, but in its place is a welcoming, warm and cosy cottage suitable for holidays and short breaks in all seasons. The cottage is available for week-long holidays of 3-night short breaks. There are plenty of historic buildings, gardens, pubs and restaurants within easy reach. Off-road parking for two cars.
Relax in the double aspect lounge which is warmed by a log burner and provides direct access to a private rear patio garden. The kitchen is very well equipped with everything a couple should need. Facilities include:
• Hob with extractor hood
• Washing machine
• Plenty of utensils, crockery Etc.
Sleeping accommodation comprises a triple aspect master bedroom with a four-poster bed and a smaller room for an infant, making this a perfect cottage for a young family with pre-school children able to book summer holidays during school term time. This second room can also be used as a study with a desk and fast fibre broadband connection. There is a family bathroom with WC, bath and shower adjacent to the main bedroom.
Deep in the heart of the Devon countryside, Apple Cottage maybe, but it lies within easy travelling reach of little fishing villages, beaches and resorts lining Devon and Dorset’s Jurassic Coast including Charmouth, Lyme Regis, Beer, Budleigh Salterton, Sidmouth, Seaton and Exmouth.
Yarcombe village is very much a peaceful rural affair, with plenty of countryside walks down the deep Devon lanes and fields. Try your hand at trout fishing in the village too and bring some home to barbecue.
The historic market town of Honiton bursts with antique shops, traditional dairies, bakers and tea rooms. A little further afield, explore Exeter and its magnificent cathedral, or hire bikes to cycle the Ship Canal towpath down to the coast at Dawlish. There’s first-class cricket at the County Ground in Taunton for sports lovers, or a chance to see Premiership Rugby at Exeter Chiefs.
Apple Cottage is a smoke-free and pet-free holiday cottage. It is usually available on a weekly basis but can be let for short breaks, (minimum of 3-nights).
For further information or to enquire about a booking, please contact Clive or Paula by email or phone (alternative number: 01404 861174). We look forward to hearing from you.

We wanted to say thank you. We felt very welcomed in this lovely country cottage. It provided us with everything we needed for our stay. Well appointed with a lovely log burner, comfortable bed and peaceful surroundings, it made it difficult for us to leave
