Part of the west wing of this historic farmhouse, Rook is a quirky Cottage sleeping 4. Downstairs there is a lime washed sitting room with large woodburner and two comfortable sofas on a wooden floor. The adjoining dining room has natural slate floors and a table seating four. A well fitted kitchen offers views out onto the back lawn and pond which is home to ducks and moorhens.
Upstairs is a lovely comfortable double bedroom and a twin room. The twin has a raised cabin style bed which is fitted above the main stairwell and more often than not children take great delight in abandoning the raised bed and sleeping in the "den" below!. The shower room next to the bedrooms has a wash basin, WC and shower. Outside Rook has its own slate patio with table, chairs and barbecue facilities. There is free Wifi, towels and bed linen is provided and well behaved dogs are allowed in Rook Cottage.
Great Gutton offers you a chance to escape, relax and unwind. About 40 minutes from both the North and South coast and with Exmoor and Dartmoor nearby it's a great place to start exploring from. The busy market town of Crediton is nearby and Exeter is only 20 minutes away with its historic quayside and superb shopping facilities. All the five properties have well equipped kitchens and there is free Wifi in all cottages. Offering 3, 4 and 7 night stays throughout the year, we look forward to welcoming you to our charming 16th Century Devonshire farmhouse.
The Morgan family moved into Great Gutton in 2009, slightly nervous of what we had taken on, but excited at the thought of what we could do. Since then we have finished the bulk of the renovation work & now seem to be starting again! With 4 kids, assorted dogs, chickens & sheep, life is never dull & we love to see folk enjoying their stays here as much as we love living here. There's all sorts to do & all sorts of ways to spend your time; Beaches, Moors, Culture, Traffic pubs, lovely walks, old stuff/new stuff and everything in between. Great Gutton is also a great place to just chill & relax. In recent years we have seen more & more folk come to us as part of a celebration, a gathering or just to be together. Our indoor heated pool open all year round is the icing on the cake!
