EXMOOR COTTAGE HOLIDAYS
The stone and slate Wisteria Cottage is the smallest cottage at Exmoor Cottage Holidays and is all on one level, ideal for those who have difficulty with stairs (although there are two steps up to the front and back doors). It has a spacious sitting room with log stove, and a separate living room with well equipped kitchen and dining area. There is a comfortable bedroom for two people (+ cot) which can be arranged either as a king-size double or twin, and a large enclosed private garden. Wisteria Cottage is perfect for your holiday on Exmoor and in North Devon.
Wisteria Cottage, a stone built barn with a stone extension, was completed in 2012. The cottage is extremely well-insulated and double-glazed and is very warm and comfortable. The furnishings and decorations are all in a traditional style and there are polished wooden doors and several charming exposed beams.
The sitting room has a log stove (with a back boiler) and large double glazed folding doors leading out to a private garden. There is a large sofa and upright chair and digital Freeview TV with DVD/CD player.
The separate living room faces east and west. There is a dining area with dining table and chairs and a well-equipped kitchen with everything you need (electric oven, hob, hood, fridge with large freezer compartment, toaster, kettle, crockery and cutlery, etc.) and many extras such as washer/dryer, dishwasher, microwave and cafetiere.
Heating is from electric night storage radiators; an instant heater in the shower room; and optionally, a log stove in the living room (with a back boiler that heats a radiator/towel rail in the shower room). Hot water is provided by an immersion heater (and optionally, by the back boiler).
The bedroom has a ziplink bed that can be arranged as a king sized double, or as a twin. There are bedside wall-lights and cabinets, a chest of drawers with a mirror above, and a wardrobe. The beds are made for your arrival with duvets, pillows and fresh linen (blankets are also provided). The shower room has an airing cupboard, WC, hand basin (shaver point over) and a shower in a large cubicle.
Outside the cottage is a private decked area and (two steps down) a large enclosed garden with a picnic table. The garden is surrounded by charming hedges and has a willow tree and a Victoria plum. There are gates on either side; to the shared grounds and to a quiet country lane. There is plenty of parking on site nearby (and you are welcome to drive up to the front door in the courtyard to load and unload).
Wisteria Cottage is provided with a full basket of logs and kindling; cleaning materials and cloths; a vacuum cleaner; a Welcome Pack with a few essentials – tea, coffee, sugar, fresh milk, shampoo, conditioner, toilet roll, bin liner, laundry liquid and dishwasher tablets; and tea towels, dishcloths and hand-soap. There is free WiFi in the cottage, with sufficient broadband to watch films (the site has 100mbs fibre-optic connection), a comprehensive information book (with details of the cottage and surrounding area) and a selection of books, games and attraction leaflets.
In the delightful grounds is a lovely walk around Humphrey’s Hill, a children’s playground, and a wild-flower meadow ideal for exercising dogs. There is a bird-feeder outside each cottage (filled regularly), tame ducks on the pond, and you may help yourself to any of the fruits and herbs growing in the grounds (not everything is edible, please ask if unsure).
We try to keep our impact on the environment to a minimum and have recently installed photo-voltaic solar panels on the roofs. We recycle everything we can, and compost food waste and ashes on our own compost heap. Firewood for logs and kindling is sustainably sourced from our grounds or a local forest. We use the minimum of bleach and anti-bacterial cleaners, and provide eco-friendly hand-soap in Wisteria Cottage that is hypo-allergenic and kind to the environment.
We know North Devon and Exmoor well and are always happy to show you the best walks and places to visit on an Ordnance Survey map (which you may borrow) and recommend attractions and services (e.g. fine dining, scenic drives, National Trust properties, best cream teas, day trips, etc.). We often have special deals arranged just for our guests; and usually offer (charged extra) more logs and kindling, towel hire, service wash and dry and cottage cleaning.
