Property Description

Buttercup Cottage is a 2 bedroom barn conversion. It is extremely well insulated keeping it cool in summer and warm in winter. The cottage faces south-west and so is in the sun for most of the day.

The ground floor provides a light and airy open-plan living area with a fitted kitchen, dining table and a lounge area with cosy wood burner. Full height windows extend the living space, opening out onto a south-facing patio and graveled courtyard that provide the perfect suntrap from which to enjoy a morning cup of tea or al-fresco dining. The modern bathroom includes a shower over the bath and under floor heating

Upstairs there are two comfortable bedrooms with exposed beams and stripped wood floors, reflecting the character of the original building. The master bedroom is equipped with a comfortable double (4ft 6in) pine bed, chest of drawers and wardrobe with space for a travel cot or standard cot which can be supplied on request.

The second bedroom is equipped with a full size single (3ft 6in) pine bed, a small double (4ft) pine bed and chest of drawers.

A lovely rural barn conversion with parking and play area for children.

By Natasha C. on 15-Nov-2022

Cottage had everything you could possibly need including access to washing machine and tumble dryer. Kids enjoyed the outside space and it was well situated for Seaton, Sidmouth, Lyme Regis, all 20-30 mins away and local town on Honiton.

Good experience

Would recommend if not too concerned about being away from village amenities

Quiet retreat in East Devon

By Angela R. on 19-Sep-2022

Enjoyed a break away in Northleigh East Devon, at Buttercup Cottage. The overall accommodation was adequate with all the essential needs accommodated for. Its a lovely location if your looking for a holiday to get away from the hustle and bustle of life. Located in a very rural area with large towns 20/30 mins away.
