    Holiday Rental House – 
    2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4
    Set in the heart of the rolling Devonshire countryside, not far from the bustling city of Exeter and within striking distance of the North and South Coast, Apple Cottage offers a blissful retreat from the rigours of daily life. Designed for four but equally perfect as a romantic retreat for two, Apple Cottage is one of two beautiful character cottages, positioned within the owner's grounds just outside the sleepy village of Colebrooke. A perfect choice for lovers of peace and tranquility and for exploring the rolling Devon countryside whether on foot, by bike or by using the train, where you can jump aboard at Yeoford just 15 minutes walk, and take the Rail Ale Trail along the Tarka line.

    Newly refurbished and boasting many green credentials, Apple Cottage combines charm and chara...

5 of 5 stars Reviewed 16 September 2013 for a stay in September 2013

We don't really have "renovated barns" as places to stay in the US, so I wasn't really sure what to expect. This place holds it's country character and is a very comfortable/modern place to stay. It has everything you could need and more than I thought. The even provide hair dryers and a 110v outlet in the bathroom for international electric razor or anything else that is low wattage. That came in very handy since our UK outlet adapters we bought back home didn't fit the outlets (manufacturing problem, nothing wrong with their outlets.) The owners were very friendly and helpful.

There's a whole bin of information brochures in the cottage to give you ideas of what to do in the area and instruction manuals for every appliance in the place.

The roads to get to the cottage are pretty scary for people not used to single car width two way roads. That can't be helped if you want to stay in the UK countryside though.

Management response:

Thank you so much for your kind review of Apple Cottage. We are delighted you enjoyed your stay and that the cottage met all your expectations and more. Hopefully next time you are in England and you decide to come to Devon, we can help find another lovely cottage for your stay. Kindest regards Devonshire Cottage Holidays more
