The Orchard Retreat is perfectly placed for rural break in the heart of Devon, surrounded by fantastic countryside with many wonderful things to do just on the doorstep. The two cottages (The Cider Barn which sleeps 6 and Apple Tree Cottage which sleeps 4) are within the main courtyard and both have a private garden with outdoor seating and a charcoal BBQ. Each cottage comes fully equipped with all you need for the perfect holiday - a home away from home, with all the mod cons including Wi-Fi, satellite television, DVD player and a dishwasher in the kitchen. Towels and linen are also provided as part of the price. Set apart from the cottages, the yurts are nestled within a four acre orchard with just a short stroll over the stream to the Facilities Lodge, which houses a private bathroom for each yurt and further communal kitchen facilities. Both cottages and yurt guests are free to wander the 15 acres of land with its treehouse / play area (2 swings, slide, climbing rope & tree house) streams, meadows and wood. Play pooh sticks in the streams, hide and seek in the woods and have a picnic in the meadow or just relax and enjoy the peace - The Orchard Retreat really does enable you to get back to nature in ultimate comfort. At night the stars are just amazing - take time to look up and take them in, you may even see a shooting star or two! As well as exploring the region by car, Mid Devon is ideal for cycling and walking, so bring a bike or enjoy many of the public footpaths available. For days out, Exeter is just a 20 minute drive; where you will find many restaurants, bars, great shopping and the award winning Royal Albert Memorial Museum & Art Gallery (museum of the year 2012). Within an hours drive you can be at the North or South coast - take your pick of a variety of beautiful beaches, retuning to the countryside for a little rest and relaxation time. Both Dartmoor and Exmoor are also a short distance away and full of adventure. Whatever you choose to do, The Orchard Retreat is an ideal place to start.

About the Owner

Having spent many years being lucky enough to live & travel abroad, my husband & I realised we wanted to base ourselves in the UK. Devon became a favourite of ours, with its rolling countryside & proximity to the coast plus having family here meant it was the perfect place to move & begin our dream of running holiday cottages & setting up yurt camp. We fell in love with 'glamping' after staying a yurt in the Lake District - there is something really wonderful about sleeping under canvas whilst in a real bed. As soon as we saw it, we realised East Forde Farm was the place to do this and to share it with guests, who we are confident will love it as much as we do, is just perfect. You really can get back to nature here, relax & unwind & we can't wait to see you here soon. Vicky, Nick, Maddy & Moon the dog

Location

From the Owner

East Forde Farm worked for us in so many ways - with a family home, two cottages and land in a peaceful location just outside a village. Plus many amenities within an easy drive, set East Forde Farm apart from other properties we had viewed in Devon. It's a beautiful drive just 20 minutes from the M5 and even though the town of Exeter is twenty minutes away, it feels so rural. It all fell into place and we decided this was the place for us and our guests.

Facilities

From the Owner

We have stayed in many holiday cottages, but to stay where you not only have a private garden but access to 15 acres of varied land is something really special. With a wood with honey bees, a mature apple orchard, meadows and pathways joining them all together The Orchard Retreat here at East Forde Farm really is a destination in itself.

Notes:

  • Notes on accommodation: All of our accommodations have been furnished to a high standard with everything you need for a rural break. A lovely mix of the old & new, up-cycled and recycled – something to suit all tastes. Both cottages & all yurts come with a fully equipped kitchen area so that all you need to bring is food and drink & your loved ones. Each has a further information manual, fire safety equipment & we have leaflets for many local attractions available. We also have a communal barn, The Gallery, for the yurts (available to cottage guests in during the yurt season) with sofas, games & books - it has a laundry room available all year round for cottage guests. Introduced from March 2015 is a small shop selling some locally sourced & made items including charcoal, coffee & soap along with a few other bits. Please note this is not a fully equipped shop so all essentials should be brought with you. We do provide washing up liquid and dishwasher powder, torches and candles where applicable. Outside: Both cottages have their own private garden with picnic table and charcoal BBQ. The yurts also have a picnic table and charcoal BBQ each. The Orchard Retreat is set in 15 acres of private land and all guests have free reign to enjoy the meadows, wood and streams. There is a pretty pond in the orchard which is also accessed by the meadow. For guest safety, this currently is out of bounds as the bridge is unsafe and needs some maintenance. Lovely bridges span the stream which runs throughout the property and the wood has a wide variety of trees as well as housing our resident honey bees. Please do take a walk to see the bees, but be mindful of their setting so they can carry on their good work making delicious honey. There are lovely picnic spots - so enjoy a relaxing picnic and take in the countryside, just perfect.
