Come & stay in Delightful Devon! Our home in the heart of the countryside has a delightful guest suite with a 6 foot, comfy bed & ensuite bathroom with walk in shower. You will sleep restfully, in utter quiet & awaken to an amazing morning chorus of birdsong ; we are surrounded by nature. Breakfast available with prior booking. 20 mins from the glorious cathedral city of Exeter & 30 mins from Taunton (by car). Enjoy country walks & our local traditional English pub for great, homecooked food.

The space

We live in the Burn Valley, just outside the village of Butterleigh and 4 miles from Silverton. Country walks around here are delightful; although our house is on a lane, traffic is rare & nights are silent. Bickleigh is 2 miles away with Bickleigh Mill and the Fishermans Cot. The market town of Tiverton is 5 miles and the beautiful cathedral city of Exeter is 10.

Guest access

We have a large garden and our fields surround our property. The meadow with river frontage is gorgeous in the summer with a treehouse which is an ideal spot for watching wild deer. kingfishers, squirrels, bullfinches, nuthatches, woodpeckers and if you're really lucky, otters (we've seen them twice!). Feel free to amble over to meet our horses, Madge and Winnie. Your room on the 1st floor (up one flight of stairs) is spacious enough to add a single put-you-up child's bed if required.

If you are travelling with children or adults & would like another bedroom, there is an adjacent super-king bedroom (with its own bathroom) which can also be rented. Please see my listing for the "Comfort and Relaxation; with a view of the woods".

Interaction with guests

We live in our family home; your room is private with its own ensuite bathroom. You are free to use the wifi and relax in the garden if the weather permits. Please aim to arrive any time after 4pm. If you're going to be late arriving and we've gone to bed ourselves, we'll leave the main front door unlocked for you. Please lock it after entering and then keep that key to use whilst you're here.

Breakfast is Self Service & I provide cereal, milk, bread & teas, coffee etc. Checkout is always by 10am.

Other things to note

Please leave shoes at the bottom of the stairs as we have new carpets upstairs. We have (lovely) cats, who won't pester you and will only come into your room if you leave the door open. Bed linen is always freshly laundered for every new guest; but I never iron anything (on the basis that life is too short!). If you are staying longer than a week, your bedding & towels will be changed on the 7th day, so please strip the bed after you're up. Checkout is by 10am weekdays and 11am on the weekend so you can enjoy a lie in. Breakfast is laid out between about 8 & 10am; let me know if you'd like an earlier breakfast. You'll have your own key; please return it on check out. Thank you!

Check in time is after 4pm; if you can let me know your expected arrival time & update me with any changes, that'd be helpful as I need to ensure someone is here to let you in. Check Out is no later than 10am; this applies please for 1 night & longer stays as well.

I am happy for guests to use the kitchen in the mornings to make their own breakfast; tea, coffee, milk, cereals & bread all supplied. You're also welcome to put your own items in the fridge the night before, if necessary. I don't have the facilities for guests to prepare evening meals: we have an excellent selection of local pubs which do evening meals & there are plenty of restaurants in Bickleigh, Tiverton, Cullompton & Exeter as well.

Tea and coffee making facilities are provided in your suite.

Please always smoke outside and use an ashtray.

Please remove shoes before going upstairs as we have new carpets.

Absolutely great BnB. Very clean and comfortable room, lovely ensuite and perfect hosts. Located in a lovely quiet area but very quick into Exeter. This was my first air BnB and I will definitely do it again. Thank you

Just a little way off the M5 and yet down the leafy lanes a feeling of being in deepest Somerset countryside. Emma is a welcoming and interesting host and I had a tranquil night's sleep in a huge, comfortable bed. Lovely room and ensuite bathroom. I loved meeting Emma's two friendly horses!

Thank you Emma and Simon for a very comfortable stay and a relaxed hospitable welcome. It was perfect for our stay in rural Devon, located well for exploring and visiting places of interest as well as being very close to the city of Exeter and the university site.
