Dog friendly family holiday house near Tiverton, sleeping 12 with a hot tub and games room for gatherings of friends and weekend breaks
Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends. Buzzards House and Spring Cottage, Tiverton, Devon, sleeps 2 - 12 in 5 bedrooms.
Buzzards House is a totally unique homestay as it is closest house to rent to Buzzards Wood which is a National Trust gem, a real Devon highlight. It has a magical rural setting, surrounded by gorgeous gardens and orchards with the River Dart gently flowing through. It's a fabulous holiday house near Tiverton for multi generational groups, friends get-togethers and family fun.
The ground floor is primarily an open plan oak floored room, with a large dining table and huge comfy sofas with French doors opening onto the verandah. And there's a sun filled conservatory off to one side.
The Verandah has a large dining table, barbecue, fire pit and relaxed seating close to the hot tub. It's a brilliant sun trap as well as being somewhere to sit outside on balmy evenings with a glass of wine, listening to the birdsong and taking in the countryside surroundings.
There is also a large sitting room which has a large L shaped sofa, TV, books, games, desk and is a perfect room to watch movies, have quiet time, and escape the rest of the gathering.
There is a a downstairs loo and boot room as well as a laundry room with additional fridge freezer. The kitchen is practical, well equipped and conveniently placed for the dining table although it has to be said that many meals are eaten outside at Buzzards House.
The garden is huge and has orchards on both sides. We have created a picnic spot by the River Dart in the main orchard. It's a great Swallows and Amazons space for the kids. Owls and birdlife are wonderful and every now and again, a deer steals through the orchard. The games room is in Spring Cottage in the garden for pool and ping pong and the lawns ideal for croquet.
The 5 bedrooms upstairs are a combination of superkings and kings for 10, with two pull out beds for children. All beds made up with the white bed linen and stylish soft furnishings. There are 3 bathrooms including 2 shower rooms and a bathroom with freestanding bath.
Walks to Buzzards Wood are literally on the doorstep and a short drive to the local pub in Cadeleigh great for some pub grub. Tiverton is nearby, worth a visit to learn about its heritage in the wool industry. Exmoor is 35 minutes away and the coast is an hour.
