Your home from home

The Hutch is a new build holiday cottage within the grounds of our own house. We built it over the summer of 2017 based on what we look for in holiday accommodation (style and substance), and therefore hope you won't be lacking in anything. It was recently redecorated during Autumn 2020. 

  • Off street parking outside your front door with your own gated entrance and security light

  • ​Fully tiled, luxury bathroom with full length bath, overhead power shower, fluffy towels, posh shower gel and handwash. Bathrobes are provided for your use during your stay.

  • ​King size bed with deep mattress, soft bedding, plump pillows, cushions and stylish bedside lights for night or day time reading. Blackout blinds. A generous sized wardrobe with hanging space, drawers and shelves, ironing board, iron and  hairdryer. The bedroom can also accommodate a travel cot which we provide.

  • ​Open plan living, dining and kitchen room with wonderful views over the surrounding farmland. There is a comfy 3 seater sofa, coffee table with travel and interior books to browse, flat screen Smart TV (Netflix, iPlayer, Disney+), electric fireplace, large cupboard with more books, local information, board games and baby/toddler toys and books.

  • Positioned in front of the floor to ceiling windows, is a dining table and comfy dining chairs for two people (high chair can also be provided).

  • The kitchen has stylish, modern light grey units and is well equipped. There is a washer/dryer, fridge (with small freezer box), electric oven, electric hob, kettle, toaster, microwave and Nespresso coffee machine. Pods are provided. 

In terms of provisions, tea, coffee, sugar, biscuits, olive oil, salt and pepper are available regardless of length of stay. As is breakfast where we provide you with bread, butter, jam, marmalade, pastries, cereal, muesli  porridge and local milk. For those staying 3 nights or more we will make sure you have a bottle of wine to sip.


Within 5-10 drive is a small McColls shop and Tesco Express can be found in St Thomas, or a large Sainsburys in Alphington on the outskirts of Exeter. A milk vending machine has recently opened in Longdown itself, we therefore provide you with a reusable glass bottle of local milk and if you need anymore feel free to top up the bottle yourself! Our well regarded local pub, The Lamb, is just a 3 min walk down the hill from your door. Excellent quality food which is locally sourced wherever possible. Booking recommended.

Your outside space
  • ​French doors lead out of the living area onto a purpose built wooden deck terrace. From this elevated position you look over our garden onto the surrounding fields. A Weber charcoal BBQ and dining table and chairs are there to be enjoyed day or evening.

  • We have also added outdoor seating in front of The Hutch as this catches the afternoon sun. 

  • Parking for one car is right outside your door. This parking area is shared with The Burrow and we recommend where possible you back down the drive. Parking for The Hutch is on the left hand (wall) side as you come down the drive.
