Property code: 82433

A fabulous farmhouse with countryside views offering exceptional style and outside space, with no attention to detail forgotten. Situated on the edge of the favoured village of Witheridge with shops and pubs.

Tucked away amid the market towns and scenic spots of Mid Devon, this characterful farmhouse on a working farm is perfect for family reunions or getaways with friends. After day trips to the rugged North Devon coastline or adventures on the moors, you are welcomed home by two wood burners to get cosy and snug. Energetic guests can get competitive in the games barn or take to the skate ramp for a fun-filled evening.

Bursting with rustic features and traditional charm, find inglenook fireplaces, exposed beams and a piano dotted throughout this home. Pour tipples and enjoy sociable drinks nights in the gorgeous kitchen/diner which oozes light and tranquillity, or fire up both wood burners and curl up with your dogs for a snug evening in one of two lounges. Perfect for adventures in the Great British weather, make use of the handy boot room before challenging guests in the games barn or spending time outside if the sun makes an appearance. Take care of internal steps and the step between the patio and lawn.

Enjoy your rural location on the outskirts of Witheridge where the village pub is perfect for hearty meals should you fancy a night off from the kitchen. If you’re after fresh, local produce and ingredients for homemade dinners, make the 11-mile journey to South Molton where you can peruse the shops and the twice-weekly pannier market. A trip to Devon wouldn’t be complete with a trip to the seaside, the 31-mile trip to dog-friendly Saunton Sands is well worth the journey and 3.5 miles of golden sands await.

The cottage is beautiful and so well equipped, couldn't think of a thing we needed and didn't have. Although on a working farm it is set back in a peaceful and private part, you forget anyone else is around. We benefited from games barn, football in the garden, lovely walks across fields to shop/pub and ended days with a soak in the hot tub. With aRead moren age range of young ones, teenagers, oldies and dogs we all loved our time at Lower Cannington Cottage, a place to enjoy whatever the weather! Hide

Fabulous find in rural Devon. The kids loved the games barn and we loved the warm, sociable kitchen and large corner sofa for family movies. Incredibly peaceful and quiet - the only noise was from the friendly cows who came almost to the front door, which our children loved!

This is a fantastic cottage in a wonderful location that we couldn't recommend enough. This was a 60th birthday holiday (2 years late!) with 3 households coming together and the house accommodated everyone's needs really well and a great garden for kids and adults It is warm and welcoming and we felt at home in no time (there were actual tears thatRead more we had to leave!).
