Rosemary Cottage description

Situated in a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, surrounded by the rolling hills and lush farmland of the Blackdown Hills in mid Devon, the hamlet of Old Bridwell sits on the edge of Uffculme, adjacent to Lord Mountbatten’s 100-acre deer park and wedding venue, Bridwell Park Estate. This row of three holiday cottages can be booked individually for smaller groups and families, or if all booked out, can sleep up to 20 people for larger holidays or gatherings. Beautifully restored from the original working farm buildings and barns, these charming character cottages lie in a spacious gravelled courtyard centred on a thatched circular pump house, with a beautiful listed walled garden with original box hedged pathways, cordons of apple trees and espaliers of pear and plum tress. Spring Cottage (ref 28939) was home to a natural spring, that even in the hottest, driest of weathers continued to flow, leading to the name ’Bride’s Well’, as it was claimed young brides could improve their fertility by washing in the spring water. Bramley (ref 28941) and Rosemary (ref 28940) cottages were originally farm barns used in traditional cider production, using apples grown on the Bridwell Park Estate.
Just 2 miles from Junction 27 on the M5, yet in the very heart of Devon, conveniently situated for access to all major roads and a host of visitor attractions. Tiverton Parkway railway station is less than 10 minutes away, with direct trains to London Paddington, Birmingham, Manchester and Penzance. Dartmoor, Exmoor, Lynton, Lynmouth, Lyme Regis, Seaton and Sidmouth are all close by, and Tiverton, a bustling market town straddling the River Exe, is just 8 miles away. Knighthayes Court, Bicton Botanical Park, the Tarka Line, several golf courses, Quad World and plenty of opportunities for swimming, golf, horse riding, cycling and fishing are all easily accessible. The cathedral city of Exeter is 22 miles, and the numerous amenities of Taunton are 17 miles. Diggerland and various National Trust properties are within easy reach.
With the River Exe, Devonshire Heartland, Somerset and the North Devon coastline on your doorstep, the properties are situated in an excellent countryside location, offering a good base to explore this beautiful area. They are also within easy driving distance of Exmoor National Park and the Devon and Somerset border. Crealy Adventure Park is great day out for the children, with rides and animals, and there is something for all ages. The Jurassic Coast is just 17 miles away; the coastal path offers walkers stunning views, with a bird’s eye view of many coastal features. From the coastal path you can experience the drama of sheer cliff faces, taking in Sidmouth, Budleigh Salterton, Seaton, Beer and Lyme Regis.
