Enjoy epic group get-togethers at these five-star gold cottages in rural Southleigh, Devon. Nestled in a lush, private valley just a few miles from the coast, the Higher Wiscombe cottages are perfect for celebratory toasts. Plan special birthday parties or milestone anniversaries or summer fun, Christmas wishes and New Year celebrations. BBQ in the gardens and sunbathe at the poolside, catching up with loved ones and weaving memories that last a lifetime.
This is an idyllic location large groups who want to escape to the East Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Set around a rustic, farmhouse courtyard in a 52-acre valley, this holiday destination offers sumptuous comforts and traditional country splendours. Expect original farmhouse features and roaring log fires, blended with contemporary furnishings and an eco-friendly design.
The main centrepiece of this collection is The Winery. The Winery cottage has 10 impressive double bedrooms each with comfy super-king double/twin beds and designer en-suite bathrooms. Spiral staircases lead across its three sprawling floors, where you’ll find two family kitchens and a massive dining room. With extensive renovations taking place in early 2020, you can now dine up to 32 inside at the dining table, or dine outside on the lower terrace. The new sitting room and bar area seats 32 people, as does upper terrace. Spare sitting room for 16. There are beautiful elevated views over rolling Devon countryside. The utility room with an industrial dishwasher so makes washing up for up to 32 speedy. There are three drinks fridges and Bar, two fully equipped kitchens.
The Winery can be booked with two other cottages (Flint and Thatched) to accommodate larger groups. The Flint and Thatched cottages sleep up to six people each in three deluxe double/twin en-suites. Both have stylish living areas and large country kitchens, along with a mix of four poster beds, super-king doubles and 3ft twins. The former even has access to its own private cinema room that has a 42” screen and state-of-the-art surround sound.
Each of the cottages has been finished to an exceptionally high standard and boasts superior fittings and an exquisite attention to style. Look out for the oak beamed ceilings and the characterful, thatched roof or the slate floors, brick archways and reclaimed prison doors. Vintage seaside prints adorn the crisp white walls and are complimented by fresh, vibrant colours and modern wall art. Underfloor heating and sink-in sofas add a warm, homely touch and are joined by oak farmhouse kitchens with range cookers and granite worktops. These six people cottages work nicely with The Winery, allowing larger groups to enjoy Higher Wiscombe in style.
Outside, each cottage has its own private, enclosed garden with an alfresco dining area and Weber BBQ. While away your days soaking up the spectacular country views or booking an exclusive session at the outdoor heated pool. There are TVs, books and games for those rainy days, along with a communal games room with table tennis and table football games.
Head out beyond your gardens to explore the magic of Devon, uncovering its wild, open countryside and windswept, sandy coastline. Prepare for country adventures and days at the beach, followed by gourmet food and a classic cream tea. Drive to the World Heritage Jurassic Coast and walk the South West Coastal Path, or cycle along winding rural lanes and picnic above the sands. The beaches at Beer, Sidmouth and Branscombe are all just four miles away, while the famous River Cottage can also be found nearby.
