Tucked away down a private drive, Broad Ley Cottage ref NT012010 and Mattress Cottage ref NT012014 adjoin one another and are two of a row of three thatched cottages (formerly one farmhouse). They lie close to the village of Broadclyst, on the edge of the Killerton Estate and a few miles north east of Exeter. Decorated and furnished to a good standard, they enjoy shared use of a large lawned garden and patio, with plenty of space and parking for both. They are a marvellous example of traditional Devon building and contain many original features including open beamed ceilings, inglenook fireplaces and latticed windows.
There is more than enough interest on the Killerton Estate to occupy an entire holiday. There is a pub and shop in Broadclyst, and Killerton House has a glorious landscaped garden surrounded by parkland, a fine 18th-century house with a renowned historical fashion collection, a garden full of trees from around the globe, and classic woodland. There is always somewhere to explore at Killerton. Try the six walks around the estate; you might even spot some deer grazing.
With Dartmoor within easy reach, the popular south coast nearby, and the rural countryside of East Devon on the doorstep, the cottages make an ideal base for exploring some of Devon’s finest scenery. Devon is a big and beautiful county with much to offer, from sleepy market towns to the miles and miles of coastline, much loved by surfers, swimmers, families and walkers from all over the world. Visit Exeter’s historic quayside, and the Customs House and various other old buildings and warehouses dating back to Charles II. Whilst wandering around the quay area, you will also come across the odd antique and craft shop for that all important gift. Refreshments are offered through the many pubs, cafés and food outlets nearby. Exeter cathedral is also well worth a visit. Shop, pub and restaurant 4 miles.
