This charming cottage set in the heart of the Blackdown Hills is a fantastic location for everything from a family vacation to a romantic trip for two.

Made from stone with wonderful character beamed ceilings and a hand-made wooden staircase, this charming cottage is surrounded by picture-perfect rolling farmland. Able to sleep up to four people, across one double and one twin room, this lovely cottage makes a great family home-from-home. With use of a hard surface tennis court, and close to the village of Dunkeswell, this property provides a great base for people looking to visit the area.


The quiet location was just what we needed to unwind and relax. The area was stunning and there was lots to see and do. The cottage had everything we needed and more and we would definitely recommend this property to friends and family.

I have stayed at many holiday cottages but I have to say that Beech cottage was one of the best. It actually felt as though you could live there full time! It had everything necessary, was peaceful and although the owners lived across the way, they were not intrusive at all.
Mrs Boughen

The cottage was immaculate. The setting was peaceful and very relaxing, which is exactly what we wanted. The owners were also extremely helpful and very pleasant. I cannot think of any faults whatsoever. A very enjoyable stay.

Just returned from a fantastic two weeks in this cottage for Christmas and New Year. We had a wonderful time - fantastic kitchen diner - living room is cozy and warm - great double doors leading onto your own patio - great in the summer. Beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean. Two large bedrooms (1 kingsize bed and two singles) and lovely bathroom with separate shower cubicle. There is also a separate toilet and utility area downstairs (off the lounge) so have gone home with all clean clothes - fantastic !!! I cannot recommend this cottage enough - there is also a cute little hotel about a 5 minute walk away - so if you fancy a drink in the bar or a meal out - it's very nice. The kitchen in the cottage is beautifully equipped - The owners Roz and David made us feel very welcome. They have horses and a lovely black laborador called Lass who is always pleased to see you. Table Tennis and a tennis court are also at your disposal. Had such a relaxing time - mobile reception is not good here but you have full WIFI in the cottage so can make calls on your phone via what's app or TuGo if you are with 02 like me and need to keep in touch. I was also able to watch the odd movie on my kindle fire too - no buffering or interference !!!! Loved this cottage very much - home from home x

Beech Cottage was quiet and peaceful. The owners were lovely, very helpful and yet unobtrusive. The Cottage itself was beautiful, very well appointed and everything was thought of. It was clean, tidy and very welcoming.
