Winkleigh is one of Devon's undiscovered treasures... It is a rural retreat small enough to retain its unique traditions, but large enough to boast a vibrant village community.

We also have a Community Centre, a Village Hall and a Sports Centre, together with a church, a Chapel, and a Primary School.

The historic farming village has a wealth of clubs, and organisations from the famous Winkleigh Singers to the Winkleigh Society which works to enrich the lives of people in the community.

The thriving primary school has its own young gospel choir, and the community unites without fail every year at the start of the summer for the 750 year old Winkleigh Fair.

The Cottage: Traphouse Cottage is 350 years and lies down a quiet lane within walking distance of an attractive ' chocolate box' village.

It has lots of character which include a traditional log burning stove nestling in the inglenook fireplace, beamed ceilings and thatched roof.

We think of ourselves as been extremely fortunate to be the owners of this little cottage, when the stress of our working and family life reaches hectic, John and I head for our peaceful tranquil cottage as soon as we are through the front door the smile returns to our faces and our creaking bones relax.

Holiday Cottages purchased this cottage in 2010

We looked at many cottages in Cornwall and Devon over a period of 2 years turning properties down for various reasons but our criteria was not would this make a good holiday home but is this a place we would want to return to time after time ? Does this cottage feel comfortable, warm, fun, happy and of a good atmosphere? Will we feel that this is our secret hideaway but also a place where we will make friends and be part of the village? I am so happy that Traphouse Cottage has been all of these things.

We fell in love with our cottage the minute our car pulled up outside, we saw the unique charming village with handy shops and pubs then step back in time little streets, the thatched roof, original tiny windows with the feeling that you can touch the first floor windows from outside ,then we went inside and we felt the strength of the cottage walls . We giggled as we tried to climb the wonky staircase and then looked out to the sun trap of the patio area. Yes this was for us all the waiting and looking could stop. We got back in our car and we didn't speak to each other for 5 minutes until I said ‘Right who rings the estate agent?’ and we pulled the car into the next lay by and made the call.
