Don’t be surprised if you get a faint scent of apples on the air when you’re staying at Siskins Nook; in days gone by this is where they bought the fruit in from the local orchards and used it to make farmhouse cider; many a happy hour was spent sitting on the rustic benches here, making sure the brew had turned out right.

But of course, that was yonks ago; since then it’s been given a new lease of life and offers very restful holiday accommodation for 4 people in two bedrooms, so it’s perfect for two couples as a good base for a walking holiday, or for a family looking to have a relaxing stay in the Devon countryside.

You’ll see how the pastoral charm has been retained; some of the thick stone walls are left bare, others are painted white; centuries old timbers have been left as they were, and all the quirky window openings are still there. It all blends seamlessly with the top-notch modern furnishings, all there for your convenience.

On the ground floor there’s an ample open plan living space; stairs straight ahead, kitchen to the right, living room to the left. The Shaker style kitchen is well equipped with an electric oven and hob, fridge with ice box, dishwasher, microwave, and washer/dryer. When the weather’s good open the top of the stable door to the garden and let the fresh air drift in around you whilst you sit at the table enjoying your breakfast. In the chillier months, get back from a walk around the fields and snuggle up on the sofas in front of the wood-burner; get yourselves settled with a nice hot drink, maybe some toasted teacakes, and find something to watch on TV, or hunker down for a movie night.

A contemporary glass and wood staircase takes you to the landing where off to the left is Bedroom 1, with a kingsize pine bed, and built in wardrobes. To the right is Bedroom 2 which can be a twin or a superking room and can also accommodate a cot.

In the middle, the shared bathroom is finished to a high standard and has a P bath with an overhead shower.

At the back of Siskins Nook there’s a private garden that’s mostly laid to lawn and has its own hot tub - and don’t forget, you also have use of the huge shared grounds and games room. This is such a lovely place to stay for family holidays, cosy weekends away, walking breaks and days with friends. Book today!
