Dowland Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Bright, ground floor apartment off the beaten track in rural Devon

The Old Stable is a recently renovated cottage in the grounds of the owners property, The Old Vicarage, in rural mid Devon, about 3/4 of an hour’s drive from Exeter and offers two beautiful and individual apartments for 2 - 3 guests, one ground floor and one first floor apartment (The Hayloft is advertised separately).

The front door is accessed over cobbles and there are two steps up to the door. The door opens into the main living area of the apartment. To the right is the kitchen, which is well equipped and offers a four ring electric hob, electric oven, fridge and dishwasher, microwave oven and plenty of kitchen cupboards. You will find a supply of tea, coffee, hot chocolate and sugar and milk in the fridge on your arrival. There are also essential herbs, spices and oil.

The Shippon is a self catering apartment, but we do offer breakfast hampers, which can be ordered and delivered to your apartment in the evening for you to prepare and enjoy in your own time the next morning. There is a choice of a continental style hamper or a traditional English hamper. Breakfast Hampers are an additional cost @ £8.00 per person per night. Please ask us if you would like this option and we will ask for the additional payment prior to your stay. Breakfast hampers must be ordered upon booking.

There is a sofa bed in the sitting area (which can be used for one adult or two small children), TV with Freeview, DVD player and a dining table, which will seat four.

Children over the age of 10 years are welcome.

Leading off to the right of the main living area is a separate double bedroom, with double bed. A hairdryer is provided.

To the left of the main area is a shower room, separate toilet and utility area with washing machine and tumble dryer. Soap and shower wash are provided for your arrival.

The apartment is centrally heated during the chillier months and bed linen and towels are included.

Free WiFi.

Outside the front door is a shared garden for both apartments to enjoy, although The Hayloft does have its own first floor patio area.

The Greenhouse Spa offers a cedar hot tub and sauna for 2 people and the services of a beautician. This is a shared facility for all guests, with private times for each apartment.

No pets in this apartment.

No smoking.

Dustbin and recycling boxes can be found by the garden gate into the owners' back garden.

There is internal access to the apartment above, so both apartments can be let together. Both apartments can lock access to the other apartment. There is a cupboard at the top of the stairs where you can access ironing and cleaning facilities should you need them and board games at the bottom of the stairs.

Parking adjacent to the Old Stable.

About Jill

My husband, Paul, and I live in rural Devon in the South West of England. At the end of 2013 we bought an old vicarage and have been renovating ever since! We have recently completed a renovation on the cottage in the grounds of the house and are now letting this out for bed and breakfast and self catering holidays. Paul, a retired GP, has done much of the renovation work, while I run a small holiday company with a business partner and friend.

We have three children, two of whom are at university at present and our youngest is currently still at home and working as a carpentry apprentice. We share the house with two cats and two dogs and love this beautiful, unspoilt part of the country and its people.

Jill purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Jill chose Torridge

We love a challenge and this property has certainly been that! We have spent the time renovating the main Old Vicarage and the cottage and are now looking forward to sharing this special place with our visitors. When here you feel miles from anywhere; it's very peaceful but within easy reach of the beautiful North Devon and Cornwall coastlines and Dartmoor to the south.
