Completely refurbished three bedroomed classic historic listed cosy cottage in the heart of the Devon village of Silverton close to Exeter and very near to several National Trust Properties. 3 minutes walk away is a wonderful, food award village pub and there is a nearby village shop. Woodburner and central heating with parking off road for 3 cars.There is a garden room/ playroom,leading onto sunny patio with barbeque and outdoor dining table. There is a secluded, walled beautiful garden.

The space
This is a fully modernised ancient cottage where a 15 century window was discovered. From the fully equipped kitchen with dishwasher and table that seats 10 there are patio doors that lead onto sunny patio ideal for outdoor eating. Beyond that is a beautiful peaceful walled garden with exquisite Victorian greenhouse, where you can relax to the sound of the fountain. Molly and Gabrielle the garden bantams supply eggs and Milly is the resident very friendly cat. There is a smart tv in the sitting room with over 2000 books and numerous games and puzzles. There is also a large sunroom/playroom that can double as a downstairs bedroom for visitors not able to tackle the cottage stairs. It is next to the downstairs walk-in shower and loo. There are TVs in all the bedrooms. The very pretty front garden leads onto the historic Main Street of Silverton and the adjacent drive provides off-road parking for 3 cars. Because of Covid I have changed to 5 day minimum stay with a day between bookings to allow for a deep clean.

Guest access
Guests have the entire house themselves. Magnolia cottage is my home so I will be staying away but there is always my colleague Alison who lives in the village and cleans the cottage and I am always available via email or phone.

Other things to note
We have designed the interior of the cottage for our old age so there is a wheelchair friendly shower room and loo downstairs and easy access to the ground floor. There is a approx 3 inch high step from kitchen to sitting room! Currently there is a double sofa bed in the downstairs sun room but that might be too low for older people. In the sitting room the chesterfield sofa converts into a higher double bed.

Silverton, England, United Kingdom

Silverton is a classic Devon village, off the main road, where you still have horses passing down the street and can hear new lambs bleating and everybody says hello. It has 2 wonderful pubs, a shop and beautiful ancient village church if you wanted to catch Chrismas services. We are 40 mins easy drive from some wonderful beaches and Dartmoor. Our favourite day out is heading towards the Jurassic Coast. It’s 15 minutes drive from Exeter and we also have excellent bus service. Many National Trust properties near and further afield the wonderful Eden Project and all of Cornwall.

Now we have moved into Magnolia Cottage ourselves it won’t be so frequently available. I have now completely restored Cherry Trees Silverton,a 3 bedroom house, sleeping up to 8 guests, particularly with families in mind. It has a safe enclosed lovely courtyard with a playhouse and pets are welcome after discussion. We are 3 mins walk away as are the 2 pubs with great food and the shop. IMPORTANT NOTE from May 6 to 16 2019 there is a 15% discount on minimum stays of 5 days or more on both Magnolia Cottage and Cherry Trees.
