Teign Vale is a beautifully renovated holiday cottage, nestled in the picturesque woodlands of the Teign Valley. The accommodation is all on one level with no internal steps or lips.

A modern and attractive tiled balcony looks out over the river, woods and landscape, the perfect place for spotting birds and wildlife – deer regularly track from the river to the woods. The river is also home to salmon, trout and a family of otters; and there is half a mile of fishing bank.

Inside the property are two en-suite king size bedrooms and a large super-king size en-suite bedroom. All the rooms have bi-fold doors that open out onto the balcony, so you could open them all up to create a unique outdoor/indoor space. The large, lawned and level garden is around an acre in size and is the perfect place for children – or adults! – to run around. There’s also a barbecue and fire pit in the garden, along with a games room.

If you’ve come here for the scenery, there are walks through the woods right from the door; and you can wash off those muddy boots – or dogs – in the Belfast sink with running hot and cold water at the side of the property.

Attractions and nearby amenities:

Exeter may be one of the smaller cities in the country, but there’s still lots to do here. The local history stretches way back, and it’s all on display, with the Roman walls, the medieval Cathedral and the beautiful quayside. The shopping is excellent too, both for big name brands and bric-a-brac, and you’ll find lots of places to dine out.
If you’d like to get to know more about the area while you’re here, the Royal Albert Memorial Museum in Exeter is an award-winning attraction that takes you from pre-history right up to the present day. It’s free to enter.
Castle Drogo has an unusual claim to fame. This is the last castle to be built in England. Construction finished in 1930, and it was designed by the famous architect Edwin Lutyens. The castle is undergoing renovation, but is still an impressive landmark, and the gardens are stunning.
Originally a medieval monastery, Torre Abbey Historic House and Gallery is incredibly well preserved. There’s an art gallery here and there are regular touring exhibitions. If you’re here in the summer, the Open Air Cinema Festival is a must.
The locals are proud of Chagford and you can see why. This is a quiet town nestled on the side of Dartmoor, with lots of independent shops and art galleries. People come here for the cultural and arts heritage, and there are festivals throughout the year, but you might want to just explore the network of ramblers’ paths and trails.
Fingle Woods is an ancient woodland site in the Teign Valley that has been preserved for the nation by the National Trust and the Woodland Trust. This is how the countryside used to look, not just in Devon but across much of the UK. If you’re coming down this way, be sure to stroll over the picturesque Fingle Bridge too.
Bicycles, canoes and kayaks can be hired locally.
