The cottage is full of character, restored with oak grown on the farm.
The kitchen is fully fitted with granite worktops, a range cooker and granite floor. The living room is open plan with slate flooring and a wood burner. There is underfloor heating on the ground floor. The solid oak staircase leads up to the 2 bedrooms which both have an en- suite shower room. All the rooms in the house have views of the beautiful surrounding Devon countryside and the large pond with our tame ducks.

The space
Pond Cottage is in the grounds of our 150 acre, 500 year old, stone built traditional farm. We keep sheep and a lot of free ranging poultry. There are 3 orchards, a magnificent arboretum, now maturing nicely and established by John many years ago. He also planted, a grove of 350 Giant Redwoods, grown from seeds and there is a beautiful, secluded outdoor swimming pool.

Guest access
Our guests are welcome to walk all areas of the farm and use the pool.

Other things to note
Our farm lies in a very quiet part of mid Devon, with very little light pollution.
On a clear night the stars are impressive. Our nearest village is Witheridge, 2.2 miles away with 2 shops and a pub with good food. In the opposite direction is Rackenford, 3 miles away with 1 shop and a very 'old' gastro pub.

Location

Devon, United Kingdom

The countryside around us is wooded and beautiful with hardly any traffic. You can hear owls at night and on clear nights see the stars. We have no near neighbours and a car is a necessity. We are in the middle of Devon, very useful for excursions in any direction.

During your stay
We enjoy having guests in our cottage and as it is a working farm, we are usually on hand to greet our guests and then most days are available to answer questions, make suggestions or even, when there is time, show them our arboretum and giant Redwood plantation. Guests are free to walk about on our farm and surrounding fields and orchards and say 'hello' to our friendly sheep. In the Guest Information Book you will find a map of the farm.
