Follow the tree-lined drive to this smart Georgian house and be warmly greeted by Charlie and Julia, homemade cake and tea at the ready.
There’s a peaceful air with the grandfather clock ticking away the hours. You’ll sleep like a bear under goose down duvets; there’s a suite for a small family and rooms to bring friends or grandparents along. Charlie, Savoy-trained, and Julia are fun and give you Aga breakfasts with heaps of choice: organic porridge, fresh and poached fruit (lots from the orchards), homemade bread, jams and yogurt, local bacon, slow-roasted sausages, smoked salmon and scrambled eggs, veggie options too.
There’s a holiday barn (self-cater if you have a dog in tow), acres to explore, dark skies and Exeter a short drive. Walk to The Thirsty Farmer to work up an appetite for supper.
