About the property

Sleeps 4. 2 Bedrooms. 1 Bathroom.

Whitley Farm Dairy is a detached stone cottage, full of charm and character. Its spacious accommodation sleeps 4 people. This 17th century converted dairy nestles amongst the rolling Devon fields in an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It is an idyllic rural retreat, offering total privacy in a quiet and secluded position, having its own driveway, yard, patio and grassed garden. It is equipped with dog proof fencing and has views of open countryside. This is the ideal holiday cottage for those wanting peace and quiet, birdsong and stargazing.

Whitley Farm Dairy is part of Whitley Farm and neighbors the farmhouse and cottage, while remaining private and secluded. Whitley Farm is a smallholding of 10 acres, with chickens, sheep and a small herd of Dexter beef cattle. You are welcome to join us for chicken feeding, egg collection and lamb petting.

The Dairy has easy access to Honiton golf Course, Devenish Pitt riding stables and many footpaths, and is yet only a 15 minute drive from the Jurassic coast's seaside towns of Beer, Branscombe, and Sidmouth. Lyme Regis is a little further, about 25 minutes drive.

The closest town for all amenities is Honiton, 8 minutes drive, which has a Tesco and Lidl supermarket. There is a Waitrose in Sidmouth, 15 minutes drive, and a Sainsburies in Ottery St Mary, 10 minutes drive. Or you could arrange to have your groceries delivered.

There are several pubs and restaurants within a 10 minute drive.

Inside the cottage there is a spacious open plan living area with exposed beams and French doors to the patio entertaining area. The kitchen is very well equipped and has a dining area. Ground floor double bedroom with kind size bed, exposed beams and views of the fields. Shower room with hand basin, WC and heated towel rail. Stairs from the living rom lead to an open plan galleried second bedroom with twin beds. Stair gate provided.

Presented to a high standard thoughout, with comfortable furnishings, lovely beds and high quality White Company towels and bedlinen.

Fantastic property in an idyllic location!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect for our Christmas getaway. Immaculately clean and cosy furnishings, with everything we needed for a 3 day retreat. Lovely hospitality as we arrived to find prosecco in the fridge and fresh eggs from the farm. Would be back in a heartbeat!

5 star with comfort

  • 5 of 5

Such a beautiful and well equipped cottage. The added extras of eggs, milk, biscuits and bits for the dog gave such a welcome. The underfloor heating kept us warm, and the tiled floor was ideal for the dog, especially in the wet/muddy conditions of being away in winter. One of the best places we have stayed and would be even better in the summer months. Definately recommend others to stay there.
