Waxway Farm nestles below the beautiful East Hill woodlands with its panoramic views over the lush Devon countryside towards Exeter and Dartmoor. Although no longer a working farm, horses, dogs cats and chickens may also greet you on your arrival.
The cob and thatch construction of the main house, built in 1594, reminds us that this is a open countryside, steeped in traditional values and history. This is the land of Coleridge, Drake, Raleigh and many others who have had their influence on British history.
Although easily and quickly accessible from all parts of the UK this remains a quiet and peaceful place and it is from here that Gill and Patrick Roberts and their family welcome you to sample the space and countryside that still exist in such abundance in Devon.
We are less than four miles from the World Heritage coast at Sidmouth and the beaches at Exmouth, Branscombe and Beer lead us to the world-renowned Jurassic coast at Lyme Regis and beyond. Less than an hour away are Dartmoor and Exmoor with their wide open spaces, spectacular views and countryside and opportunities for walking. Exeter, with its cathedral, shops and modern facilities, is just a short drive away.
Our two cottages, Swallows and Bats, offer people a comfortable base from which they have the opportunity for as quiet or as busy a time as they wish, to relax and get away from the pressures of modern life, or to have an active holiday with all that Devon has to offer.
Bats Cottage sleeps up to four people and is a cosy yet spacious cottage for smaller families and couples. With its downstairs bedroom and bathroom, it provides suitable accommodation for those for whom stairs may be a problem.
Bats cottage provides an ideal base for relaxing and exploring the great Devon countryside.
Swallows Cottage sleeps up to six people and is the ideal base for holidaying without losing the comforts and space that a large group needs to enjoy that holiday. Perfect for larger families, it nonetheless retains the cosy feel that couples and smaller groups desire when relaxing in the countryside.
