Old & traditional cottages
Character and traditional cottages
Many of our character holiday cottage in Devon are packed full of charm and character. Some listed cottages date back many centuries where construction did not included modern day damp-proofing. With many older cottages they can be susceptible to damp especially during wet weather periods. We recommend that if you are staying in an older cottage, the best way to manage and avoid damp conditions is to heat and ventilate in equal measure. Unfortunately, heat alone will actually create condensation to form, aggravating the issue - they are living buildings and as such require a flow of air via the odd open window.
Older cottages and buildings may also have quirky layouts, low eaves and ceilings and steep staircases. We try and describe any unusual aspects of a property within the property description, and show unusual features within photographs. We can advise you on any aspect of a property that you might have concerns about, so please do not hesitate to contact us on. 01326 573808.
