Garage parking for 2 cars. Ample private parking. No smoking.\n \u003e Slowpool is a detached period property which has been extended to provide spacious accommodation for a large family or friends - who want to holiday together or have a special occasion to celebrate. It occupies a very rural setting at the end of a track in a 6-acre wood 3 miles south of Honiton. The wood is a haven for wildlife with regular sighting of badgers deer and an abundance of birds. There is a network of footpaths in the woods for guests to use at their leisure. The coast of Sidmouth is a mere 20-minute drive.\nThis is a superb house with total privacy it has been decorated and furnished to a very high standard and boasts two wood burners together with many original features and even a hot tub. The ground floor bedroom and the kitchenbreakfast room both have a window seat looking out to the grounds. The kitchen also features granite worktops and a large island with stools. \nFor walkers and bird-watchers this really is the most suitable accommodation. There are so many walks to enjoy from the front door.\nMany activities are available in the area including golf fishing horse riding and sailing. There are also numerous NT properties - all within a short drive. Exmouth is close by and has a lovely 2-mile stretch of beach and was once home to the wives of Nelson and Byron respectively whilst a bit further on lies the genteel town of Budleigh Salterton with its white-washed and thatched cottages which attracted such visitors as Noel Coward and PG Wodehouse. At Exeter the South West Coastal Path Park is an ideal family day out. Exmoor National Park is also worth a visit with its rugged landscape and ponies. Shops and pubs 3 miles. \n " https://img.chooseacottage.co.uk/Property/844/840/844768.jpg HMMA

    Great house, lovely gardens, peaceful and quiet.Everything was as anticipated and we had a wonderful holiday. One point to note is that as the week progressed there was no way of checking the ph levels in the hot tub or using chlorine tablets to refresh the water.Consequently, towards the end of the week the hot tub was unusable.

    There were 11 of us age range 20 months to 63 and we all agreed that it was a beautiful house and the location was so peaceful with fantastic views. The beds were so cosy and comfortable. The lounge very spacious and room for all. We saw deer on the field and heard the owls. Superb place as a base for visiting surrounding area.



    out of 10

    Great house for a family reunion and celebration - plenty of space and very comfortable. Amenities are very good and quiet and secluded location. Ideal for us as happy to drive to places - shops are about 15 minutes away. Many pleasant evenings spent outside catching up, playing games and relaxing. Would definitely recommend.

    beautiful spacious house. party of 12 ranging from 3 to 83 had a lovely time. living spaces are a good size as are bedroom.



    out of 10

    Large country home, close to the woods built into the hill side. More steps than we expected inside, could benefit from some smaller saucepans in kitchen and more cupboard space in bedrooms. No shops nearby, had to drive 15 mins or so into Honiton for any goods. Whilst access could be difficult if you are looking for somewhere away from it all this is the place for you.
