Enfield House Holiday cottage is located in the scenic rural hamlet of Nymet Rowland in Mid-Devon. Its geographic position gives exceptional and easy access via A377 to the Cathedral city of Exeter and its many cultural and shopping possibilities, with easy reach coastlines just a 15 minute drive on. Or, head in the opposite direction to the amazing long sandy beaches of North Devon. Giving you the option to explore two very different but equally beautiful coastlines. RHS Rosemoor, wild and stunning Dartmoor, and various National Trust/ Heritage sites are all located close by. Our cottage has numerous leaflet and maps to help you explore.
Our self-catering holiday cottage has its own parking area, steps up to the front porch and secure double-glazed front door. The well-equipped kitchen-diner downstairs has a washing machine, dishwasher, built in cooker, extractor and under counter fridge and freezer, smoked glass table with four chairs, cupboards, shelves, boot rack and coat hooks; with plenty of space left for luggage and shopping. Totally practical for every eventuality of self-catering, yet carpeted dining area and colour changing ceiling light makes for intimate dining.
Upstairs the airy carpeted bedroom has a memory foam mattress on a king size bed, insulated curtain to allow you to sleep in, bedside drawers with lamps (also fairy lights in a glass vase), double wardrobe, handy chair and a full-length mirror. Next door the shower room has a venetian blind, sturdy grab rail handles in the shower – which is bigger inside than it looks, basin, toilet and charger outlet. At the end of the landing is the super cosy snug. A friendly room located at the back of the property, it overlooks the garden and fields. It has a large well sprung two-seater sofa decorated with plump cushions, an armchair and matching footstall and wooden cupboard on which there is a smart TV (suitable for streaming). Inside the cupboard you’ll find a DVD player (will take blue ray) with a few DVD’s for an assortment of easy reading books. As well as the main ceiling light there are two modern led lamps at each end of the sofa and fairy lights draped over the tree branch, hopefully giving you viewing, reading and romantic lighting.
Outside your holiday cottage has easy access grassed area and a private patio that catches the sun during the summer, with bistro table and chairs plus two sun loungers (if there not out please ask). The area has a well planted hedge between the holiday cottage patio and owners garden, with a low trellis fence around the other secluded sides so you don’t lose the remarkable views of the garden, pond, fields and wildlife. During the day you will see a variety of different birds, maybe a shy snake and cheeky squirrels. By night you will hear owls and see bats, larger nocturnal animals do wander the gardens but are harder to catch sight of. Clouds permitting the stars are stunning we never tire of looking up.
If you walk the local lanes you may see the dairy herd, sheep, horses, cats from the local farm and possibly a fox or deer. We do recommend bringing some sturdy boots if you wish to follow the many footpaths across the local fields (the views are stunning) or walk in the nearby woods and forests; they’re also quite useful if you plan to visit Dartmoor or Clovelly with its hard-cobbled streets that descend to the seafront. The lane walk to the local Spa shop is approximately 1.1 miles.
