Lake View Family Cottage description

Holiday home
Lake View is a quality barn conversion close to Zeal Monachorum, a tiny village 9.3 miles from Crediton. The cottage has a double, a twin and a single room, a bathroom, ground floor cloakroom and an open plan living area with kitchen, dining area and sitting area. Outside is off road parking for two cars and a paddock with orchard. Guests can also stroll to the stream and fishing lake to soak up the countryside setting. Lake View is close enough to Crediton or Exeter to offer amenities and shopping, but is also surrounded by excellent walking and cycling and of course, breathtaking scenery.

The tiny village of Zeal Monachorum lies seven miles from Crediton, amid beautiful countryside. Crediton has a selection of amenities, and the area is full of wonderful walking and cycling. Visit Exeter, or head to Dartmoor National Park.

Devon, with its quiet country lanes, patchwork of lush green fields and sleepy villages is not to be missed. Stately home lovers will be spoiled and why not finish with a scrumptious Devonshire cream tea?

We loved the grounds of the holiday home - the stables and ponies, the fields with sheep, the ability to take a nice long walk through the countryside. We loved being situated so that we could go to both Exmoor park and Dartmoor park. But we most like the owner and their family. They were accommodating, helpful, and treated us as very special guests.

On arrival we were made to feel incredibly welcome. The property is immaculate but homely, and the beds are incredibly comfortable. The views are beautiful, and my little girl particularly enjoyed the gardens and adjoining land. She adored the horses, geese and chickens. I would highly recommend this property, and hope to visit again very soon.

The owners extremely helpful without being intrusive. The cottage was very warm and cosy to come back to after a day out. Granddaughter particularly loved the horse and ponies. Felt it was very good value.

Lovely to wake up to seeing horses, donkeys and sheep and no cars. The country side was quiet and peaceful. You could only hear the sounds of nature.
Mrs Perkins

The setting was lovely, the cottage was super and the overall experience quiet peaceful. However, civilisation is just around the corner or in this case down the lane so all things are possible from this location. Idyllic!

We liked the warm welcome from our hosts. High quality renovation of this former threshing barn. Fabulous views and misty morning dawns and starry nights. The horses and ponies peering into the living room window. The most comfortable beds in a holiday property yet. Real Wi-Fi that works consistently and with decent speed.

Everything was 5 star; the beds were extremely comfortable, the kitchen very well equipped and the lounge diner very lush and comfortable.The scenery was fab and the peace and quiet was heaven. The owners were very welcoming and gave great advise on where to eat. The Tom Cobley was fantastic with great food and numerous ciders to try. Highly recommend you stay here.

A very well presented holiday home which we felt at ease in over the christmas break, and were made to feel at home by the owners throughout our stay. We will definitely book again, and recommend to family and friends.

Superb accommodation, and wonderful owners. Could not ask for more.
Mrs Yates

The house is totally stunning, and has been renovated to a exceptionally high standard. The house is a real home from home and much more. All the rooms are decorated to a very high standard and the kitchen has more equipment than most peoples kitchens at home. The surrounding grounds again are extremely well kept and the views breathtaking. We would recommend this property to anyone without a doubt and will definitely return in the not to distant future.

Excellent barn conversion and a credit to the owners. Immaculate, and a great rural location and giving east access to all parts of Devon both North and South coasts which we really enjoyed. Members of the National Trust will also enjoy the many many local places to visit as we did.

Stayed here with my daughter,son in law and husband. Very well designed barn conversion overlooking a private fishing lake surrounded by lovely Devon countryside. Lovely owners.

I've just about said it all above, except to mention that our kids really enjoyed Dave's fishing tuition!
