Overview

About the property

2 bedrooms (sleeps 3), idyllic village location with shop & pub, near Exeter

Cherry Tree Cottage is a charming cob cottage in a village setting, in the heart of the Kenn Valley, and only 5 miles from the city of Exeter. The convenient location, just off the A38/A380 "Crossroads to Devon", gives easy access in any direction - the coast within (15 minutes), the Exe Estuary Cycling and Walking trails (which runs from Dawlish up to Exeter and Topsham and onto Exmouth), the East for the Jurassic Coast (15 minutes), the stunning Dartmoor National Park (20 minutes), the stunning Teign Valley (15 minutes), The English Riviera, Torquay and Paignton (25 minutes), Plymouth (25 Minutes) and North Devon (1 hour), etc.

The property has 2 bedrooms - 1 double and 1 single (sleeps 3). It has an Inglenook fireplace and Woodburning stove , a Rangemaster cooker to complete the beautiful homely country kitchen/diner, dishwasher and washer/dryer. There is underfloor heating in the stylish travertine wet room. The hand-made oak staircase is a particular feature of the property. There is a peaceful and pretty cottage garden where you can sit out and enjoy a glass of wine!

The village boasts a friendly and well stocked shop and a village bar (both 100 metres from the door), and just a mile away is the Ley Arms, a 12th Century thatched pub.

About Jacqui Warrender

Paul and I have been lucky enough to live in Devon for most of our lives. I have lived in Kennford for 9 years now - we live together now - just up the road! I most recently worked as a PA and Paul is our sound Accountant! We love being outdoors exploring the countryside, either on foot or on our bikes, and know that we have the very best on our doorstep. The Kenn Valley is stunning and we regularly enjoy a bike ride along the Exe Estuary trail or escaping to Dartmoor National Park for a walk and a picnic (just 20 minutes away). The city of Exeter has a lovely feel and there is of course lots to see and do. We also love to pop down to Topsham (the old Port). We hope you will feel free to enjoy the many walks and cycle rides we have left in the comprehensive welcome/visitor information pack so that you make the very best of your stay (we have done your homework for you!)

Jacqui Warrender purchased this cottage in 2016

Why Jacqui Warrender chose Kennford

We do love the village. It has everything we need - with a great local shop, some great pubs and a village bar, but at the same time we are just a 10 miles from the coast and 15 miles from Dartmoor. We will never tire of this area, so we have decided to stay put and buy a holiday home so that you can get a taste of the good life!

What makes this cottage unique

When we saw the cottage we fell in love with it as it is just so characterful, but immaculate. It has the most beautiful handmade staircase and we love the exposed beams. It is a perfect combination of old meets new - with the stylish shower room, inglenook fireplace and beautiful oak staircase.

Lovely cottage with excellent facilities

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at Jacqui's cottage. Cosy & comfortable Jacqui provided us with everything we needed for a lovely week in this wonderful part of Devon. Excellent information about the area & things to do, recommendations for some great pubs & places to eat. Very friendly local in the Seven Stars Pub. We were not lucky with the weather, arrived in a hurricane & left in a storm! But it was great non the less & we got out & about every day. Thanks Jacqui for making it a lovely break for us, oh, & that wonderful cream tea that was waiting for us on our arrival!

Property was excellent with everything need for a lovely holiday.

  • 4 of 5

Overall we had a great time in a lovely cottage with plenty to do in the area. Our only issue was the unexpected busyness of the village and the issue of hardly being able to park outside the cottage when we needed to.

Lovely comfortable cottage in a nice location

  • 5 of 5

Cherry Tree cottage has been renovated with great care and was a lovely place to stay. Jacqui was very welcoming and provided clear instructions before arrival and there was plenty of useful information in the cottage as well. Kennford is ideally located near the A38 and we found it easy to get to lots of interesting places.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Cherry Tree cottage. The location is brilliant for travelling up and down the coast and plenty of lovely places to visit nearby. The cottage itself is very well equipped and is a real home from home. The owners have given real attention to detail and provided lots of information on things to see and do during your stay. The garden is small but would have been lovely to sit out in if the weather had been kinder to us!

Kennford is nestled in the beautiful Kenn Valley, just minutes from the A38, giving easy access to explore Historic Exeter, the old Port of Topsham and the surrounding area, including the Exe Estuary cycle/walking trail, Haldon Forest for mountain biking and walking, beaches such as Dawlish Warren, Shaldon and Exmouth and the Regency seaside towns of Budleigh Salterton and Sidmouth. The stunning Dartmoor National Park is a 20 minute drive where you can enjoy walking, cycling, climbing or a stunning drive with a picnic. In Devon we are spoilt for choice with so many pretty villages and welcoming pubs, restaurants and cream tea spots. Our favourites include Topsham and Lympstone on the River Exe, Chagford, Shaldon and Dartmouth. Exeter offers plenty to do including free sightseeing tours, Exeter Quay where you can go canoeing or kayaking, visit the Cathedral and the medieval underground passages. National Trust properties to visit include A la Ronde at Exmouth, Killerton House & Gardens, Knightshayes at Tiverton, Castle Drogo and Greenway House on the River Dart (home to Agatha Christie).
