Overview

Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday cottage in Honiton - Millhayes

Four-bedroom property with one-bedroom annexe, sleeping 9 in total

Millhayes has two good-sized living rooms - the family room has large sofas and flat screen TV and the sitting room has a wood burning stove, large sofa and armchairs, sound system and has a more traditional feel. The kitchen is spacious and well-equipped and opens onto a stunning conservatory dining area with full-length windows on three sides giving spectacular views across the garden and valley beyond. The four bedrooms in the house are beautifully furnished and have lovely views. The bathroom and shower room are luxuriously fitted out. The thatched annexe is ideal for anyone who would like a little extra privacy or seclusion. It has a spacious bedroom with a vaulted ceiling, TV, DVD and tea and coffee making facilities. An en suite shower room completes this self-contained eerie!

The garden is about an acre in size with terraces and lawned areas near the house; plenty of secluded spots to sit and read, admire the views, or just do nothing!

Fabulous countryside for walking and we are also happy to accept well-behaved dogs!

Beautiful place inside and out

  • 5 out of 5
The house is beautifully maintained with a large, pretty garden. The rooms have been restored to a very high standard whilst keeping period features. The kitchen will cope with a large party and is extremely well equipped.
The area is pretty and secluded yet close enough to transport links to make ideal for short breaks.

Beautiful Quiet Thatched Cottage in Devon

  • 5 out of 5
House was beautifully presented, clean and tidy with immaculate gardens.
The location near Honiton is good, with the Jurassic coast about 30 mins drive, plus several other National trust properties and gardens within 30 mins drive.
The house had two large lounges both with sky tv and a a large selection of DVD's so large groups could split up and have some space.

A lovely spacious cottage in a lovely location.

  • 5 out of 5
The pictures on the web site, don't do the cottage justice. When we arrived, we were absolutely bowled over not only by the cottage but the location also. ( it's an interesting drive through the lanes!) The accommodation is equipped above and beyond what you need and the welcome pack is an added bonus. We would highly recommend this cottage to anyone. We wanted some where we could take all the family and this 'cottage' not only had the sleeping space, but also having two large living rooms and the beautiful dining room, meant we were not on top of each other! Both owner and manager were extremely helpful and we shall return. Thank you for helping to make our family holiday a memorable one.

Incredibly gorgeous cottage

  • 5 out of 5
This is literally the most gorgeous cottage I have ever stayed in. It is done up to an incredibly high standard and we loved our week there. We were 6 adults, a toddler and a baby. The kitchen was really well equipped and had everything we needed. Beautiful flowers and cupboard essentials whn we arrived. The dining room/conservatory is absolutely stunning with views for miles and the two lounges are really comfy. And there is sky which was great and lots of tv boxsets. We would have been set for rainy weather but we had glorious sunshine.
The bedrooms were really comfortable but the main bathroom deserves a special mention. It has the deepest comfiest bathtub. I could have lived in there.
The garden is huge and on loads of different levels so the toddler loved it. It is beautiful and there was a lovely patio where we barbecued with views for miles.
Locally we found loads of great places. There is a cream tea place about a mile away that was incredible (royal oak farm I think) and honiton has loads of lovely cafes. Beaches nearby and escot and the miniature railway place were great to visit.
I know I've gone slightly over effusive but it really was a gorgeous house and location. Judy was really accommodating with emails, questions and requests. Can't wait to book again.

perfect!

  • 5 out of 5
We were a party of 10 aging from 65 to 9 months and the property worked well for all of us! we were hoping for a beautiful location and a specious home to enjoy some quality family time together. Inside the cottage was finished to a high standard and the bathrooms were fantastic! (there should be more pics of the bathrooms! everything we needed was there but the most special feature for us was the gardens surrounding the cottage. There was so much to explore for the children and us adults! We would love to visit again xxx
