Our three bedroomed cottage (sleeps 6) combines contemporary furnishings with traditional features. Set in 3 acres of grounds which guests have full access to it is near to beaches (Sidmouth, Budleigh, Exmouth, Lyme Regis), commons, moors, Exeter airport, the Met Office, various trading estates and Exeter City centre. Attractions include Crealy, the Donkey Sanctuary, Bicton Gardens, Escot, Beer Cave and the Jurassic Coast to name a few. Ideal for holidays and business stays.

The space
The Gardens is the oldest house in Newton Poppleford. The Garden Cottage is an independent self-catering cottage which has recently been restored and is adjacent to our Devon longhouse where we live. The cottage comprises of three bedrooms one with a double bed, one with twin beds and one with bunk beds. There is a bathroom and toilet upstairs and shower and toilet downstairs. It has a living room with a cozy electric fire and separate fully equipped kitchen. There is central heating throughout.

All linen is provided, including towels. Beach towels are available to hire at £2 a towel (weather permitting of course!).

Outside we have three acres which guests have full access to. It is ideal for relaxing, eating al fresco or for children to play. There is a stream so we ask that children are supervised at all times.

The Gardens is Grade II listed and was where the King Alfred Daffodil was propagated. You will see the blue plaque commemorating this at the front of the house by a metal daffodil installation.

Couples and individual travellers welcome as well as families with children. Whilst the cottage sleeps six, the stated price is for four people, each extra guest/child aged 2?or over is charged at a rate of £10 per night per person.

Guest access
The Garden cottage is a completely independent place with it's own front door. Guests have full access to the three acres of gardens which includes play areas, summer house, barbecue area as well as the stream and the animals. Guests are welcome to use the charcoal barbecue and fire pit plus the gas barbecue (but please ask us first on this one so we can check the gas).

The outside space is accessible by all guests. Due to Covid-19 we thoroughly clean and sanitize it between bookings.
