About this listing

The cottage at the Old Hare and Hounds is half of an old coaching inn in a mid Devon village, it is cosy, characterful and very rural. There are two bedrooms and a bath with a power shower, downstairs there is an open fire and a Rayburn.

The space

This is a lovely cottage its entrance is through double doors in a yard which leads to a walled garden so it is a safe space for children. Its bedrooms are both doubles but the main one is quite large enough for a travel cot or a couple of put up beds if needed. There is a hose and a washing line for wetsuits! and there is ample safe space to store precious surf boards.

Guest access

You will be welcome to access the yard and the garden but I do use it too and the garden is a great joy to me so I am not too keen on kids with footballs or dogs with bones. There is a big barbeque and an outside table where you can enjoy al fresco dining when it is warm enough.

Interaction with guests

I live in the other half of the property so I will be able to help you whenever you need it. For example if you would like to come for Christmas I could get you a Christmas tree and order you a turkey.

Other things to note

This property is on the road so great care should be taken with small children and they should not be allowed to leave without an adult with them.

Clare was really friendly and communication was good. We absolutely loved her garden, especially the tree rope swing! Very old cottage, proper creaky, low ceilings, thick walls, stable door, thatched roof and all. A lovely small village to stay at.

We had a lovely stay in Clare's cottage. The cottage itself was great, comfy and had everything we needed. Clare was helpful and the stay was totally stress free.

Rustic cottage, full of character and charm in pretty rural Devonshire village. Excellent value for money! Claire was a warm and welcoming host. Stayed three nights with three young children visiting family locally and had a lovely time.

The Old Hare and Hounds is a beautiful old coaching Inn with a thatched roof situated in a village that I can only describe as heavenly. Quiet and secluded yet a convenience store that sells everything from pork chops to Benadryl . A cosy pub a minutes walk away where the food was very good. The Old Hare and Hounds was soo comfortable, great bathroom, well equipped kitchen wifi that worked , sky tv, an open fire. Clare really is a super host, she couldn't do more to help . I would recommend this airbnb unreservedly. Don't hesitate
