Kick back and relax (or seriously indulge) at Acorn Cottage! This unique Grade II listed rural retreat is set in the grounds of Royal Oak Farm, the owner’s smallholding. ‘Sandwiched’ between the owner’s farmhouse with award winning tea room and wonderful farm shop.

Explore the lovely gardens of about half an acre with fruit-festooned orchard and unheated outdoor swimming pool. Shared with the owners’ other cottage, they’re located just a hop, skip and a jump across the small private car park. Or potter off through the owners’ further 15 sprawling acres with plenty of seats dotted around. Discover tree lined green fields, an excellent Pick Your Own seasonal fruit farm and a plethora of pigs, chickens and rabbits!

Acorn Cottage provides comfortable and relaxing ground floor accommodation for couples and small families. Sleeping two + two, the bedroom has a comfy 5’ bed and there’s a sofa bed in the sitting room. And if you have little ones in tow, Acorn Cottage can provide a cot and highchair so that you can travel lighter. Acorn Cottage has been designed with your privacy in mind although the kind and friendly owners are on hand, if required, to help you make the very best of your holiday.

Nestling among Devon’s stunning Blackdown Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty near Honiton, this tranquil spot is also a great base to explore the seaside towns and fishing villages along the coast. A 20 minute drive takes you to the World Heritage Jurassic coastline where you can visit Sidmouth, Budleigh Salterton, Beer and Lyme Regis to name just a few.

Alternatively head for the antiques shops of Honiton, the Cathedral City of Exeter and east Devon’s Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. There are many attractions in the area, with fine National Trust houses, gardens, castles, adventure parks, farms and steam railways to explore.

In an area with a rich association of food lovers, Royal Oak Farm offers a true taste of the West Country. The quintessentially English 17th century on site tea room is there for your morning coffee fix, plus light lunches and award winning cream teas all year round. In 2016 Devon Life voted them ‘Best scones in Devon’.

A trip to the farm shop next door will have you dreaming about dinner. Packed to the brim with locally produced treats, home cooked meals to take away and produce grown and meat reared within just a few miles. Locally made bread and other essentials such as milk and eggs ensure the farm is a true community hub.

The family-run business was even featured on BBC One’s A Taste of Britain with Janet Street Porter and Brian Turner and on Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall’s River Cottage series in which he cited it as one of his favourite places.

So treat yourself to this Hidden Gem. The only downside to coming on holiday here is that it’s not good for your waistline!
