Able to sleep four people across a double room and a twin room, this property boasts a cosy sitting room with dining area, a well-quipped fitted kitchen, and a lovely enclosed garden.

Just four miles for picturesque Honiton lies the beautifully renovated barn conversion called ‘Stargazer’. This charming, end-terrace property is set over two floors and has been furnished to a very high standard. With a wonderful decked terrace, looking out over the beautiful Blackdown Hills this property has plenty to offer its visitors, not least al fresco dining. With the cathedral city of Exeter, the Devon and Dorset Heritage Coast and the wilds of Exmoor National Park all within easy reach, there is plenty to see and do in the local area during your visit.


The cottage was warm and cosy with stunning views and it was peaceful.

Very comfortable accommodation. This property has 2 single beds downstairs, Upstairs there is a double bed. There is a walk in shower downstairs and a bath upstairs. Towels and linen is provided. There is limited storage in the kitchen. Be prepared to work out how the oven works. The hot tap was also loose. On letting the owners son know of these 2 problems - oven and taps we were informed they would be fixed on our departure. Be prepared to travel on narrow roads approaching the property. Decking is directly outside. To access the greenery of the lawn and garden need to open gating on the decking. Very dog friendly, but ensure that your dog is kept under control as there are nearby poultry and sheep farms. Farmers are prepared to shoot dogs who worry their livestock I was informed by another tourist.

Stargazer is a great place to stay. For less able folk there is a ramp upto the front door from the car park area and one from the french windows to the deck. Steps from deck to garden. This is a set of four cottages and the only one with its own garden. There is plenty of walking from the door for the dogs. The lane leading up to the farm is narrow, but only goes to a few local houses, other lets, the farm and the local Buddhist Temple - so is reasonably quiet. Close enough to the A30 to get to local attractions. And around 7 miles to Honiton with a couple of supermarkets. The cottage itself is lovely, uncluttered and cosy. I am not a fan of underfloor heating as it takes a while to warm up. But once it gets going the place stays lovely. Mobile phone reception is fine here. Owners very pleasant and farm eggs tasty.

An excellent property in a lovely location which was well equipped. An ideal base for trips around Devon and Dorset, would recommend to anyone as a holiday spot. Thanks for a great holiday, we'll be back for sure!

The cottage was excellent, views were beautiful and it was a very peaceful location. The lake area was excellent and a nice addition.
