There's more opulence about this postcard-pretty period cottage tucked away in the picturesque Kenn valley, near Exeter.
Rustic beams, leather-clad storybook armchairs, and freshly cut flowers bring all the cottage feels you're chasing. While carefully curated antiques, hand-painted wallpapers, and oil paintings dials up the luxury. Upstairs, you'll find three elegant bedrooms as beautiful as the next, with beautifully carved wooden headboards, swathes of quality textiles, and antique furniture sent from another glorious time. And don't get us going on that enclosed patio back downstairs with a delightful seating area prime for alfresco lunches and a hot tub in a private nook with twinkling lights.
When thoughts turn to food and a glass of something crisp, lay the table for lavish suppers in the dining area or keep things casual, propped up at the kitchen's island. But if you don't fancy cooking, you'll be pleased to hear the village's 13th-century pub, to which this cottage belongs, is within stumbling distance. If this home is anything to go by, you'll be in for a treat
