BEAUTIFUL THATCHED COTTAGE, DATING BACK TO THE 17TH CENTURY,IN SECLUDED LOCATION

Honiton Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Four-bedroom property with one-bedroom annexe, sleeping 9 in total

Millhayes has two good-sized living rooms - the family room has large sofas and flat screen TV and the sitting room has a wood burning stove, large sofa and armchairs, sound system and has a more traditional feel. The kitchen is spacious and well-equipped and opens onto a stunning conservatory dining area with full-length windows on three sides giving spectacular views across the garden and valley beyond. The four bedrooms in the house are beautifully furnished and have lovely views. The bathroom and shower room are luxuriously fitted out. The thatched annexe is ideal for anyone who would like a little extra privacy or seclusion. It has a spacious bedroom with a vaulted ceiling, TV, DVD and tea and coffee making facilities. An en suite shower room completes this self-contained eerie!

The garden is about an acre in size with terraces and lawned areas near the house; plenty of secluded spots to sit and read, admire the views, or just do nothing!

Fabulous countryside for walking and we are also happy to accept well-behaved dogs!

INCREDIBLY GORGEOUS COTTAGE

  • 5 of 5
This is literally the most gorgeous cottage I have ever stayed in. It is done up to an incredibly high standard and we loved our week there. We were 6 adults, a toddler and a baby. The kitchen was really well equipped and had everything we needed. Beautiful flowers and cupboard essentials whn we arrived. The dining room/conservatory is absolutely stunning with views for miles and the two lounges are really comfy. And there is sky which was great and lots of tv boxsets. We would have been set for rainy weather but we had glorious sunshine.
The bedrooms were really comfortable but the main bathroom deserves a special mention. It has the deepest comfiest bathtub. I could have lived in there.
The garden is huge and on loads of different levels so the toddler loved it. It is beautiful and there was a lovely patio where we barbecued with views for miles.
Locally we found loads of great places. There is a cream tea place about a mile away that was incredible (royal oak farm I think) and honiton has loads of lovely cafes. Beaches nearby and escot and the miniature railway place were great to visit.
I know I've gone slightly over effusive but it really was a gorgeous house and location. Judy was really accommodating with emails, questions and requests. Can't wait to book again.

PERFECT!

  • 5 of 5
We were a party of 10 aging from 65 to 9 months and the property worked well for all of us! we were hoping for a beautiful location and a specious home to enjoy some quality family time together. Inside the cottage was finished to a high standard and the bathrooms were fantastic! (there should be more pics of the bathrooms! everything we needed was there but the most special feature for us was the gardens surrounding the cottage. There was so much to explore for the children and us adults! We would love to visit again xxx

BEAUTIFUL AND SPACIOUS COTTAGE WITH GARDENS

  • 5 of 5
This cottage, which is situated well for the beaches and other points of interest, is beautiful! My extended family of nine visited recently and the cottage was plenty big enough. It was spotlessly clean, very well maintained and had extensive, lovely gardens. We couldn't have wished for more. Truly fantastic and I would not hesitate in recommending to others.

JUST MARVELOUS

  • 5 of 5
I went for an Easter holiday with my family: Grandparent, parents, Aunt & Uncle and three young teenagers. It was perfect and suited all of our needs. There's much to see in the area, but stay at home days are enjoyable too. We spent one rainy day in and it gave us all the chance to hang out and relax together in a homey and cosy environment. It was idyllic. The cottage was lovely, comfortable, clean and so well kitted out! We had everything we could possibly need there and more.

LOVELY QUIT RETREAT IN THE COUNTRY

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay at Millhayes.Both the cottage and the surrounding countryside were excellent. The cottage had a lovely cosy feel to it and had every modern feature provided.
The surrounding countryside was really great for cycling on quiet roads. The garden at Millhayes has loads of space and separate parts for children's games or quiet sitting.

Beautiful cottage with a surplus amount of everything you could need and more. Lovely gardens, very spacious inside the cottage, gorgeous views and in particular for us we loved the big table in the conservatory. Nothing to fault at all, hope to be back soon.
