|Gallery - Click to Enlarge|
Overview & Online Booking
Our detached thatched holiday farm cottage in Devon is the epitomy of the chocolate box cottage, none more so than when the garden is in full bloom. As we are often told photos don’t do this property justice, you have to see it to appreciate all it has to offer. The large lawned area is great for active children or just relaxing in. The age of the cottage is unknown but likely to be around 300 yrs. It has been upgraded to give accommodation for modern living whilst still retaining its charm & character. It is ideal for either couples or a family and as this is a dog friendly cottage there is no need to leave your pet at home.
In the heart of Mid-Devon, White Witches is situated in a little valley of Hele Lane on our traditional family working farm. A gate from the garden leads to open fields, where our sheep wander by, and to the Little Dalch river (bring your wellies) where you can stroll along its banks and look out for the wildlife – fish, ducks, herons or even be lucky enough to catch the flashing blue of a kingfisher or an otter. Maybe count the number of different birds and wild flowers that you can see. A great place to stay if you enjoy wildlife and all the countryside has to offer.
The accommodation in this period cottage is beautifully cool in summer and warm in winter. A porch and boot area leads you into the dining room, which boasts a small ornamental inglenook fireplace and seats 6 people at a pine table. Please note the ceiling in this room is only 6ft 1in.
