The property

As you approach via a sweeping tree-lined driveway, the striking timber clad design of The Granary becomes visible, the geometrical golden larch exterior blending seamlessly into the soft green leafy surroundings. For exploring this region you could not be better placed with the A30 just two miles distant, making trips to the Jurassic coast to visit seaside towns such as Branscombe & Sidmouth or into the city of Exeter, to enjoy some retail therapy and a spot of lunch, an easy half hour drive.


Designed for luxury living, the uncluttered open plan interior is overflowing with fabulous mod cons including Sonos sound system, Smart TV, Nespresso machine, and a sleek bioethanol fire providing real flame at the touch of a button. In addition, discreet functional features such as bespoke kitchen with adjustable height induction hob make this a perfect retreat for those in wheelchairs or with mobility issues. The two super stylish bedrooms, furnished with deep pocket sprung mattresses, luxury Egyptian cotton linen and goose down duvets, overlook the garden and countryside via sliding patio doors that lead onto the timber veranda. Each with their own en-suite; the master is fitted with a spacious wet room including his and her basins, low level lighting, fold up seat and a deep relaxing tub to luxuriate in, whilst you watch your favourite shows on the wall mounted TV. Of course there is a telephone in both bathrooms should you need to make contact with the outside world! For guests' supreme comfort, the master bedroom is furnished with independently, electrically adjustable mattresses. Each bedroom has hanging space, shelves and a desk.


Outside a timber veranda, illuminated at night with sparkling LED lighting is the perfect place to enjoy evenings and sunsets whilst overlooking the garden and pond. There is even an outdoor shower, to hose off any muddy paws or boots, or enjoy a cooling shower during hot summer months. The garden is fully enclosed with wire-netted post and rail fencing. The Granary welcomes dogs and children, however parents must note that the pond within the garden is open and unfenced and children must be supervised at all times.


Enjoy this beautiful retreat at any time of year and, if you have friends or family who wish to visit, the owners offer B & B accommodation next door. There are numerous places to visit on your doorstep. Escot Park and gardens is a day out for the whole family and just 1 mile away. Ottery St Mary, famous for its traditional burning of Tar Barrels every year is just 3 miles and National Trust Killerton House is close by. A stay here would not be complete without a trip to the dramatic and beautiful Jurassic coast, where coastal walks and days on the beach can be enjoyed at your leisure. For eating out you will not be stuck for choice, your nearest pub being The Thirsty Farmer in Whimple roughly 2 miles away.

About the location

EXETER

Shillingford Abbot 2.4 miles; Exminster 4 miles; Topsham 4.4 miles.

Exeter is a lively city in south Devon with a magnificent cathedral, historic quayside area with artisan shops and cafes, guided tours of the maze of underground passages and a wealth of bars, shops and restaurants. There is a good choice of excellent museums tracing the city’s lengthy history including an interesting medieval building The Tucker’s Hall, built for the Company of Weavers, Tuckers and Shearman which houses exceptional carved panelling, rare silver and a 4 feet long pair of fulling shears. Nearby Parliament Street claims to be the world’s narrowest street – less than 25 inches at its narrowest. The gatehouse and tower of Rougemont castle still stand in the city, surrounded by Rougemont gardens with a backdrop of Roman wall ruins - a tranquil haven. Exeter’s one time importance as a port is reflected in the Custom House, now the centrepiece of the Quayside, a fascinating complex of antique shops and cafes. Within a 15 minute drive of the city, there are some fabulous beaches at Sidmouth and Exmouth, and the start of the 95 mile stretch of Jurassic Coast, all of which provide ample opportunities for relaxation, sport and exploration. Exeter is an ideal south Devon base from which to explore pretty countryside and Heritage Coast.
