About the property

Character Cottage with beautiful private garden,nr Sidmouth 2 Bedrms. 1 Bathroom

Whitley Farm Dairy, near Sidmouth, 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, just a stone's throw from the coast.

Whitley Farm Dairy is part of Whitley Farm and neighbours 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.

Lovely and quiet, beautiful cottage and perfect escape

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay and had a really restful holiday. The place was beautiful, really lovely decor and everything you could need. Lots of fantastic places and things to do in the area, coastal walks, country pubs, fossil hunting, climbing etc. We loved it and will recommend to everyone heading that way.

Private, secluded well equipped cottage

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a perfect weeks stay at the Dairy. The cottage is ideally placed for touring the south Devon coast. The cottage is well furnished and equipped with a private outside eating area and ample parking.

Simply stunning

  • 5 of 5

If you want to get away from it all this is the perfect place. Lovely welcome card and eggs, milk and fresh strawberries plus scrummy cookies. The cottage is spotless and probably one of the best nights sleep I've ever had away. If you have a dog this is the place for you as our dog loved it. It's all enclosed with a lovely garden plus when you arrive there's a dog treat, bags, water bowl and towels which was lovely as I always worry how people are with dogs. Our children loved it as they could play around and the owner said they could go exploring in the fields and in the morning the cows were in the field so that made their day. We had a BBQ in the evening as the cottage has one and it was a perfect finish to a hot summers day. Thank you Vicky, Nick and family for a welcoming fabulous weekend break.

Such a super relaxing break!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed here for Easter but we really wished we could have stayed longer as the area is so beautiful and peaceful.

The cottage itself is of high quality with a very well equipped kitchen, good range of entertainment and extremely clean. Reading through all the positive reviews in the guest book most guests who have stayed here are families or couples with dogs but you would never have known as the cottage is pristine! The garden is fenced so very safe to let your dogs run lose.

A fantastic welcome treat was waiting for us which we all appreciated after a long journey! There is plenty of information about the area and ideas for days out. The sea is approximately 10-15 minutes away with stunning coastal paths and pretty villages to explore.

We will definitely be back and next time for a week and in the summer so we can make use of the garden!

Excellent visit - what else can I say except a huge thank you. You really know how to make your guests feel at home.
