About the property

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!

Fabulous luxury home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

Upon arrival the cottage is even more stunning than the photos. There were fresh flowers and a welcome hamper which was a lovely touch especially after a long haul flight to Heathrow. The cottage was very well equipped, spotlessly clean and well looked after. There was more than enough space for our 3 generations of family, we made use of the annexe which was also of a very high standard. The garden was stunning with lots of hiding places for the kids to play in and lots of space to run around. The flowers and trees were beautiful, the lawns were well maintained, we spent a whole day in the garden playing and then having a BBQ in the early evening on the terrace. The location is very convenient for shops in Honiton and access to Exeter and the Jurassic Coast, but it was also very quiet and tranquil and we felt like we were away from it all. The restaurants in Honiton were really good, most accepted our Westie terrier inside too. All in all we had a 5 star holiday in a stunning house I would thoroughly recommend it and I have no doubt that we would visit again.

As soon as we arrived at the property I could see that it was beautiful and the inside matched the outside. Great sized bedrooms throughout with a beautiful mix of traditional and modern decor. The property was very clean throughout on arrival and the owners extremely helpful with the booking process before and after the stay. 9 of us stayed as an extended break for a wedding, but will definitely look to book again for a holiday/short break.

Very high quality in a beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

Spacious kitchen and dining room. Kitchen had all the equipment you could want. Bedrooms and beds comfortable. Cottage set in attractive grounds in beautiful surroundings. Very peaceful. Only issue we had is that for a full house of 8 people in 4 rooms (excl annex with ensuite) 2 bathrooms isn't enough.

The house and surrounding area is absolutely beautiful. As a group of 8 adults celebrating New Year's Eve, it was plenty big enough- with 2 living rooms NYE was even more special with the log fire! All the essentials were provided for our stay and we were plenty warm and cosy with lots of board games to keep us occupied. The only negative thing I would say is the 10am checkout as this is quite early (11am would be much better) and the 4pm check-in quite late. I completely understand this is to allow for cleaning- and it is spotlessly clean!).

It was such a WONDERFUL holiday, and we will definitely be returning.

Owner's Response: Delighted that you enjoyed your stay at Millhayes. I am sorry though that you found the check-in/check-out times slightly tight - we are sometimes able to be more flexible but if we have guests staying immediately before and after, we do need to stick to these to ensure that the property is cleaned and serviced to the highest level. Do hope you come and see us again.
