This traditional cottage is a wonderful country retreat for those who want to get away from it all. With village amenities and many attractions nearby, the cottage has everything guests would need.

Situated in idyllic secluded surroundings in the Devon countryside, this traditional cottage makes an ideal base for a romantic holiday for two. It’s also a great holiday home for your hound (or two by arrangement), with plenty of fields to run about in right next to the property. Enjoying a delightful location about 15 miles from the picturesque southern coast, this lovely house is perfect whether you and the dogs want to enjoy spectacular beaches, the dramatic landscapes of Dartmoor, or if you just want to relax in the vibrant city of Exeter (7 miles).


This cosy and inviting semi-detached cottage is full of character, retaining original exposed beams, and offering welcoming accommodation. You can relax in the comfortable lounge and enjoy a fantastic meal in the light and attractive kitchen/diner. This is the perfect place for peace and quiet with space to tuck yourself away and read, snooze and reinvigorate yourself before heading out onto Dartmoor to the city. Outside, you and the dogs can relax in the pretty, enclosed patio area, or prepare a barbecue for all ages on a lovely summer evening, whilst soaking in the lovely views across the surrounding fields and countryside.


This delightful property is just half a mile from the quaint village of Broadclyst and overlooks the National Trust’s Ashclyst Forest and is surrounded by wildlife, making it ideal for hikes or for taking dogs on quiet walks along forest paths. The forest is part of the 18th century Killerton Estate which has plenty of beautiful grounds to explore. Dogs are also welcome at Bicton Botanical Gardens (13 miles), or you could head to the coast and enjoy dog-friendly beaches in Exmouth (17 miles) and Dawlish Warren (15 miles). Heading further inland you can explore Dartmoor (19 miles) or the beautiful Blackdown Hills (13 miles).

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Lovely comfortable stay at Forches Head Cottage. Total privacy, great facilities and beautiful view. Highly recommended

Reviewed by Susan 24th August 2019

Cottage was in a quiet location but ideal spot to drive out nice and central to drive along east or west coast. A pub is close by and a short drive to a spar. Cottage is sweet, comfy bed and decent shower too. Owners gave us total privacy and we enjoyed our week

Reviewed by Barry 1st September 2018

The cottage was well equipped particularly the kitchen, rural views to the front and rear, and located to give easy access to coast or moors relatively quickly. Two niggles however- the very close proximity and speed of passing traffic, albeit only occassionly, and a thin party wall. Very good pub with the best cider a short stroll up the road.
