Dippers Rest

Dippers Rest is a light and airy cottage that sleeps 6 in 3 bedrooms. On the ground floor is a spacious open plan living space; outside is a private garden leading onto the shared grounds.

Sleeps 6 in 3 bedrooms     Prices from £350

Dippers Rest used to be the linhay at Stonehayes Farm. A linhay is a type of farm building often found in Devon and Somerset which were used to house livestock in the open fronted first storey, and above this there would have been a loft for storing hay.

But that’s all long gone now and these days Dippers Rest is used for happy holidays instead. Because it sleeps 6 people in three bedrooms it’s a good option for a family with 4 children, for two couples with one child each, or for multi-generational families; bring Granny and Grandad, why not? They’ll love it too!

Walk in to a bright and airy open plan living space, it’s like a breath of fresh air, all crisp and fresh. You’ll find country charm throughout at Dippers Rest; big stone walls, some left bare, some painted white, rustic timbers, and quirky windows. Right in front of you is the dining table and beyond it full height windows and a door giving the most gorgeous views across the valley and opening onto the private garden for Dippers Rest. To the right is the kitchen, all fully modern with an electric oven, upright fridge freezer, dishwasher, microwave, wine cooler and washer/dryer.

Through to the left is the living room, with leather sofas to curl up on, a Freeview TV and DVD player for in-house entertainment; in the corner of the room there’s a wood-burner which is a delight to come back to after a country ramble in the colder months.

Off the kitchen is Bedroom 2, which you can have as a twin or double room, with a wet room right next door. Through the sitting room is a lobby with Bedroom 3 off to the right - again a twin or double room, and to the left is a loo, and doors to the rear courtyard.

Bedroom 1 is upstairs and has a pine double bed, plus room for a cot; the en suite bathroom has a P bath with an overhead shower.

We often take bookings from a few families who want to holiday together so they take two or three cottages; it’s a good idea because you get to spend heaps of time together but you still get your own space, and what works really well is that if you include Wagtail Corner in your booking, you can all eat together in there because it has enough room for an optional table to seat 14. If you’ve got a special celebration, say a birthday or anniversary, there’s your answer!
