Eat delicious locally produced food.
Visit the seaside towns of Sidmouth, Beer and Lyme Regis.

Holiday destination Devon, South England

Located in the Blackdown Hills, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty that has been practically untouched by time and discovered by very few.

We are surrounded by beautiful views, birds, wild animals and flowers. The Jurassic Coast and many attractions of Devon, Somerset and Dorset are only a short drive away.

Our nearest town is Honiton which is a market town with much history and an interesting mix of shops, cafes and restaurants.

The village of Upottery is a very pleasant walk (about 45 minutes) along quiet lanes, across fields and beside the river, alternatively only about 5 minutes drive by car. The pub serves good food and the local 'Otter' beer; children and dogs are welcome.

Arrival

When a booking is made detailed directions are sent to you. . We greet you personally and show you into the cottage.

Wir haben uns rundherum wohlgefühlt in unserem Cottage Wetterfahne. Wir wurden sehr freundlich von Suzanne und Duncan mit jam , clotted cream und scones begrüßt, das Haus war mit allem, was man als Selbstversorger braucht, ausgestattet, und vor allem die Kinder und unser Hund haben sich auf der riesigen Wiese vor dem Garten ausgetobt und wohlgefühlt. Es gab in dieser Gegend viel anzusehen und zu erleben ( in dem Cottage gibt es hierfür viel an Prospektmaterial), auch die Wandergebiete im Dartmoor und an der Küste sind gut zu erreichen, und die empfohlenen Pubs waren wie beschrieben, lecker und vor allem hundefreundlich. Trotzdem war alles sehr ländlich und sehr ruhig, so dass man gut abschalten und sich wirklich erholen kann.

Answer of the host 30/08/2017 I am very pleased that you enjoyed your stay in Weathervane Cottage and were comfortable and made use of the facilities. Also, that you were able to get out and about so much - as you discovered there is plenty to see and do and it is very easy to reach all these places from us. Please come back and discover some more!!
Thank you for your review and my best wishes to you all. Suzanne

We have had a wonderful holiday in England and our cottage at Twistgates Farm was absolutely sweet and cosy. Suzanne, the owner gave us a warm welcome and we felt at home from the minute we arrived.
We are already planning our next holiday at Twistgates Farm, because there is still so much to see and do and we just loved it and enjoyed every second of our weeklong stay.

Answer of the host 14/08/2013 I am so glad you enjoyed your stay and that you liked the cottage. Do come back and visit us because, as you say, there are so many things to see and do!!
Best wishes to you all, Suzanne

We have had an unforgetable week in a fascinatingly landscape. The cottage was perfectly clean and very homey. Suzanne is such a friendly and extremely sympathetic lady, we felt comfortable from the beginning. We are sure, that we will spend another holiday right there.

Answer of the host 28/05/2013 Thank you for making these comments, I do appreciate your kindness. I am so pleased that you enjoyed the lovely surroundings that we live in and it would be a huge pleasure to welcome you back for another holiday.

Es war ein toller Urlaub. Das Haus ist wunderschön und mit viel Liebe eingerichtet. Die Ruhe ist fantastisch. Das Umland läd ein endeckt zu werden egal ob zu Fuß oder mit dem Auto. Es gibt viel zu sehen und die Städte ob am Meer oder im landes inneren sind wunderschön.

Answer of the host 21/09/2012 I do appreciate your comments, thank you. We are very fortunate to be located here and, as you found, it is very easy to get to see many interesting places, both in the countryside or at the coast and Exeter is a very vibrant city.
