This wonderful cottage is quietly tucked away in the English countryside in one of the finest areas of Britain known as the Blackdown Hills, an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.  Offering all the modern comforts of home, this fabulous cottage is welcoming and furnished to a high standard with everything you would need for a memorable holiday.  This spacious property has a well equipped kitchen which leads through to a comfortable and inviting lounge with a wood burner and unlimited logs and fuel to make for a cosy retreat in the country.  With such close proximity to nature it is most likely that you will see Red Deer on the doorstep and in the evening hear a chorus of Owls, along with bats on the wing and enjoy amazingly clear views of the night sky.  The wild flower meadow adjacent to the cottage can be a riot of colour depending on the time of year with some rare flowers, starting in spring  with Blue Bells in the woodland, following on with primroses, orchids, Fox gloves and campion.

Burrow Hill Cottage enjoys a peaceful 'hidden away' location but is only a short walk from the rural village of Hemyock with its convenient amenities.  Idyllic, unspoilt and enjoying  privacy with its own garden.  The area is perfect for dog lovers and the property allows the freedom to roam in the owners fields immediately adjacent.  The location offers miles of footpaths and bridleways and has a feel of adventure and exploration with the addition of two pubs, easily reached by foot.  For the keen hiker and dog lover there is Wellington Monument and Beacon to be reached, a very enjoyable trip.  In addition there is a small castle and the local amenities at Hemyock village means you can stock up without traveling too far.  There are centuries of history to discover from Iron Age hill forts to World War II sites and famous Landmarks in between.  If peace and quiet, along with stunning countryside is your thing, Burrow Hill Cottage will not disappoint you.

Short Breaks available at this property.

The cottage was beautifully presented and the hosts were very friendly and helpful. The location is delightful - we all slept so well because of the comfy beds and peace. We were lucky to have fantastic weather and so enjoyed exploring the Jurassic Coast. Thanks for the afternoon tea which we enjoyed in the lovely garden. We also enjoyed the cosy log fire in the evening.
