Quirky Cottage in Devon: This pocket-sized, chocolate-box cottage is the idyllic hideaway for those looking to explore the very best of east Devon.
Hatway Hideaway is tucked away in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. This quirky cottage is pure escapism from your everyday realities. Before you step inside your fairy-tale retreat, just take a moment to breathe in the fresh country air and your breathtakingly beautiful surroundings. This little wonder is the idyllic escape to nature during every season.
Your humble abode may look small in size but it is packed full of everything you need for a comfortable stay. The quaint living area has a small kitchen, which is great for whipping up a tasty breakfast before heading out to explore the stunning area surrounding your heavenly bolthole. The kitchen has a kettle, toaster, coffee machine, fridge, microwave and plug-in double hob, but please note there is no oven. You might like to book in ahead at local restaurants for delicious evening meals.
The traditional style cottage windows allow for natural light to flow effortlessly through the space, giving it a light and airy feel. Through the windows you have a glimpse of the rambling Devonshire countryside. Enjoy cosy autumnal mornings here with a coffee in hand, snuggled up in an armchair as you admire your truly peaceful surroundings. Stresses and strains do not exist within Hatway Hideaway, there's only space for magical memories to be created within this tiny house. The bedroom has a comfortable double bed with lovely linens, and you also have the luxury of an en suite shower-room.
During warmer days, step outside your pocket-sized cottage and enjoy al fresco dining on the patio. The view from here is truly wonderful! Pick up some local produce from a nearby farm shop and create a decadent cheese board to enjoy with wine as the sun begins to set. Or light up the barbecue and embrace cooking in nature.
Due to the peace and quiet of your surroundings, you are likely to spot deer, buzzards and other wildlife during your stay. Hatway Hideaway is situated in the grounds of the owner's listed cottage and there is one other holiday cottage on site. Please note you have plenty of privacy, but if you do need to ask a question the lovely owner is happy to help.
Your four-legged friend is welcome to join you at your hideaway, but please note the space is small, so Hatway can only accommodate a dog up to the size of a cocker spaniel.
Out and About
If you can tear yourself away from the peace and quiet, you are surrounded by wonderful places to visit. Regency Sidmouth has a beautiful seafront, magnificent red cliffs and lots of independent shops, tea shops, restaurants and pubs. The Cathedral City of Exeter is just a short drive away; here you can explore 2,000 years of history, with Roman walls, underground passages, the historic quayside and great shopping. If you are feeling energetic the Exe Estuary Trail can be enjoyed on foot or by bike, a 26 mile flat route which links Exmouth, Exeter and Dawlish, with some fabulous views along the way.
Heading east from Hatway Hideaway, you can discover more of this beautiful part of east Devon; Branscombe, with the fabulous Sea Shanty beach cafe and the Mason's Arms, or visit Beer village with lots of charm, fresh fish from the beachside shop and summer boat hire if you wish to take to the water. Seaton tramway is well worth a visit, it leaves Seaton and travels the Axe estuary through wetlands teeming with bird and insect life, to inland historic Colyton.
Further east you can book into River Cottage HQ for a cookery course or indulgent meal or hop over the border into Dorset and visit Lyme Regis. Famous for its iconic Cobb, Lyme Regis is lively all year round with great restaurants and cafes, a sandy beach, and dinosaur and fossil museums to keep you there all day.
Hatway Hideaway is not far from The Donkey Sanctuary at Salcombe Regis, offering free admission and the opportunity to see hundreds of rescued donkeys and mules on this scenic working farm. On your travels you will no doubt come across some wonderful scenery and farm shops selling a wide range of local produce and treats to take back to your holiday home and enjoy.
