Clifford Barton is set in a wonderfully peaceful 50 acre woodland wildlife haven in the beautiful Teign Valley on the northern edge of a Dartmoor, yet just 10 miles west of Exeter, and 5 minutes off the A30.
Butterdon is accessed via a stable door into a lounge with woodburning stove and dining area, a separate well equipped kitchen and a cloakroom with shower and toilet on the ground level. There is a TV and DVD player with a selection of DVDs. A DAB radio which connects via bluetooth to your ipad/iphone enables you to bring your own music on holiday with you. There is an OS map in the bookcase so you can plan your walks in the local area and not get lost in the 45km of recently opened paths in Fingle Woods.
Upstairs there is one double bedroom and one triple bedroom, and a family bathroom with a bath. The triple bedroom has stairs up to a mezanine level. This is an ideal play area for older children or younger children under supervision, since it is accessed up steep stairs (there is a stair gate at the bottom). All beds have pocket sprung mattresses as we know from experience how an uncomfortable mattress can spoil your holiday.
The well equipped kitchen includes electric cooker, fridge freezer, dishwasher, microwave, kettle, toaster and Nespresso Machine with complimentary coffee pods. There is access from the kitchen via a stable door to a south-facing private fenced garden with paved area and garden furniture. A bird feeder (additional seed provided) just outside the lounge window attracts a wide range of birds to the garden.
A new district biomass central heating and hot water system, alongside double glazing throughout and a woodburner make the cottage extremely cozy.
A communal washing machine is also available for use.
The cottages are located at the southern end of a 50-acre wooded valley, around which there are lovely scenic walks, including around a c.2 acre lake, which guests are welcome to explore and enjoy.
To the north of the cottages is a large, historic double-Linhay barn, in which there is a stage for any budding actors, a table tennis table, snooker table, table football and an old piano, which again guests are welcome to make use of.
