Об этом жилье

A magical hideaway in some of the most beautiful countryside in England. Fish Cottage, with its many original features: charming rooms, well-stocked log fires, squishy sofas, and large well-maintained private garden, is the ideal spot for a romantic weekend or a countryside adventure with family or friends. Midway between Exmoor and Dartmoor, in Tarka Country, with woodland walks, riding, cycling & fishing all available. Great pubs/food nearby incl. "War Horse" pub, Duke of York. Dogs welcome.


Fish Cottage is one of a group of former estate houses built by the Earl of Portsmouth in the 19th Century to house the gamekeeper for the old Devonshire estate of Eggesford House. Nestling in mature woodland, with a large private cottage garden, the cottage offers a peaceful retreat, away from it all, while being only a short distance from the nearest village shops - and with wi-fi!

The cottage retains its original 1840s character and in its surprisingly spacious interior is a selection of individually furnished rooms in which to relax and enjoy your stay. Upstairs two Cottage Bedrooms, with comfy double beds, hypoallergenic Miracoil mattresses and luxury cotton sheets, overlook the garden . Downstairs is a large Sitting Room with a wood burning stove, comfy sofa and leather armchairs. The Garden Dining Room adjoins the Sitting Room and has a large oak table dining and chairs for six. The book-filled Study has an open fire, antique bureau and leather sofa and armchairs. There is a well-equipped Country Kitchen with modern electric cooking appliances and washing machine. The Bathroom has a sink, antique bath and hand shower. All towels are provided.

Доступно гостям

The surrounding woodlands are all available for guests to enjoy and there are many public footpaths leading from the garden into Eggesford Forest - ideal for dog walking.

The Cottage sits in Tarka Country, in the beautiful wooded valley of the river Taw, made famous as one of the Two Rivers in Henry Williamson's classic book, "Tarka the Otter". To explore Tarka Country, simply step out of the front door and walk along the many trails through the surrounding Heywood Forest, with its giant cedars - the remains of an old Victorian Arborateum - and its ancient Norman Mott and Bailey fort overlooking the Taw valley. Continue along public footpaths to the picturesque local villages of Winkleigh and Chulmleigh where a choice of local pubs serve a variety of fine food and local beers.

Our stay at the Fish Cottage was wonderful. We have stayed for over a month in this place and found that everything we needed was there. The place is very cozy and quaint yet clean and functional. The kitchen is well equipped and we used both the range and the stove. We also used the grill a lot, so there are plenty of options for cooking. The fridge is relatively small and there is no freezer, so this would be something to keep in mind when shopping for food. The bed was very comfortable and linens were of high quality. The plumbing in the kitchen and bathroom sinks is of the old type with separate spouts for hot and cold, but there is a basin provided and we managed all right. The bathtub has the updated setting of course so bathing is not a problem. Internet was great with just a hiccup once during our stay. The Fish Cottage features a wonderful garden and we were able not only to admire the beautiful blooms, but also had some potatoes, beans and beets from the vegetable garden. We also enjoyed many evenings by the fire in the living room. Michael was very quick to respond to any questions and provided information very promptly despite being abroad and in a different time zone during our stay at the cottage. Overall a very pleasant experience. We will be missing this place and we'd recommend it to anyone who wants to explore Devon or simply to relax.

If you are looking for peach and quiet then this is the place to come. Eating breakfast looking out over the garden with the doors open listening to the birds singing made for a great start to the day. Very comfortable beds with nice bed linen made for a great nights sleep. Drinks in the garden in the evening catching the last of the sun's rays watching the bees going about their business - perfect. Great place in the summer and I would imagine very cosy and warm in the winter. A very comfortable place to stay, nicely furnished with plenty of room to spread out. And they are dog friendly! Perfect. Thanks for a great stay in your lovely home.

Hello Michael Well, that was a lovely holiday in your beautiful cottage and such a very special part of North Devon - thank you. Here is a picture of my 10-inch trout - just before breakfast, as requested, and a live lobster (had to use your sink bowl to boil in water!) freshly caught from the fisherman at Ilfracombe as they emptied their boat, and finally your quintessential cottage garden. I did enjoy fishing your fabulous stretch of water for brownies and caught 2 parr! Again thank you. All in all, therefore your cottage served as the ideal recce retreat in the heart of such splendid fishing and rural countryside - with so very, very few cars! Also, for us, you have a vert deft touch with your interiors, and for me I loved the beautiful tone of your guitar - all very memorable.  That's it, and with much appreciation from all my family, and all your help over getting me a wonderful fishing taster. Best wishes and I hope to come back before long and touch base again. Mark and Liliane and family

Lovely nearby walks and forest, a gorgeous garden with herbs, and easy to get to barnstaple or Exeter. It was the perfect place for us to relax into being back in England.

Gorgeous cottage with everything you need for a comfortable stay. Fresh bread, jam and cider were left out for our arrival which we thought was a lovely touch! Clear communication with Michael and the house manager Fiona prior to arrival and even though Fiona was away she left us two contact numbers should we need anything during our stay. The kitchen is well equipped, bed and sofas dead comfy and syylish decor throughout the cottage. Lovely garden which leads on to close by scenic walks and you're about a 30min drive to either Exmoor or Dartmoor. Highly recommended! We hope to return soon!

Beautiful, traditional and secluded cottage with fantastic walks right on the doorstep. The kitchen is well equipped and the bottle of Devon Cider on arrival was a lovely touch. The beds were really comfortable and I slept like a log every night! A very well managed Airbnb home

Julie and I love returning to the Devonshire countryside and have designed our country cottage as a place to relax and have fun away from the big city of New York where we live part of our time. My roots are in Devon and I love to fish the local rivers and the North Devon coast just as I did as a boy. The cottage is a great base for fishing trips and when not in use, my fly rods line the stairs. We spend as much time as possible outside in the long cottage garden, which is filled with flowers and seasonal vegetables. Julie loves to garden - bindweed beware! Books line the shelves of the study. We're both avid readers and collectors. The cottage has lots of pictures on the walls - some of them from my time as an Illustrator. My old series 2 Landrover "the Beast" is testament to our love of the old and authentic, and both of us have kept the cottage in a bit of a time warp. We visit Fish Cottage whenever we can but, because we travel a lot, there are plenty of opportunities for others to share its delights.
