(the owners even let us put the Christmas tree up for the kids) So when we decided to come back for a friend's wedding in nearby Exeter, we were very happy the cottage was available once again. The barn was as charming and light-filled as remembered (especially the view from the living room and master suite). The property is clean and well looked after with plenty of character and plenty of bathrooms. Great Torrington just up the hill has plenty of bars and restaurants and a supermarket. There's also an RHS garden nearby and you're within striking distance of the coast where there are some amazing little villages. Happy to recommend this property to anyone looking for a quiet get -away with the family or friends.
