Make a Holiday Rental Cottage in Higher Ashton, Devon Your Home Away From Home

Things to Do on Holiday to Higher Ashton, Devon

The streets of the village are perfect for just rambling or cycling along at a slow pace, taking in the beautiful surrounding countryside. The church in the village is worth a visit as it has a beautiful Elizabethan font, complete with bars that were placed there to prevent witchcraft activities. The church also has beautiful stained-glass windows and a 12th century rood screen. If you are feeling energetic then activities such as mountain biking, horse riding, tennis, golf, fishing, sailing and surfing are available in the surrounding area.

Great location

5 of 5
Very happy stay. Ideal location, but no good for very old or infirm due to the steps. Fantastic views.

Fabulous

5 of 5
We had a wonder time, the cottage /Barn was unbelievably well equipped, It was spotless, charming and very well presented, It's in an amazing location which would be fantastic in the summer, but as a year round retreat, wow !!
