You are welcomed to the property via a grand gravelled driveway that leads directly to the front door with enough parking for three to four cars.

Higher Venice opens into a main hallway with typically period styled terracotta tiling.

The ground floor comprises of a nicely sized dining room and separate lounge area that both lead out to the fabulous sunroom.  The sunroom is fitted with bi-fold doors that open to the patio and views beyond.

The kitchen is fully equipped and suitable for a large gathering with the dining area split between a kitchen and dining room table. There are two ovens, a fridge freezer, dishwasher, washing machine and tumble dryer.  The kitchen will be supplied with t-towels and a sundry pack.

All five bedrooms are located upstairs in this farmhouse cottage.  Two of the double bedrooms benefit from en-suite shower rooms. The remaining three bedrooms are two doubles and a double bunk room (four singles).  All bedrooms have stunning views of Devon countryside.

The gardens are truly magnificent, incorporating a beautiful walled garden, two shallow streams, a bluebell wood and wildflower banks.  You can explore the Devon countryside without having to leave the grounds, with walks that not only give a vista of the garden but also of the stunning valley the house is located in.

This farmhouse holiday cottage is idyllic for Your Devon Escape.  Allow the children to roam in the grounds while the adults watch whilst relaxing on the patio above.  Enjoy breakfast on the terrace or in the sunroom and evening barbeques out on the patio. Higher Venice is certainly worth a visit.

"We all had a really enjoyable stay. The views were fantastic and the huge garden was just right for our adventurous grandchildren. Our daughter-in-law mapped the garden for orienteering and everyone enjoyed finding the controls. Hide and seek was a favourite activity too. There are some damp problems which are worst in the upstairs family bathroom which need some attention. We enjoyed eating out on the patio and our host Paul was very responsive including arranging for a new gas canister to allow us to use the nice & efficient BBQ."

"A beautiful house in spectacular surroundings. Perfect for our family celebration. Everything we needed for adults and children; well equipped kitchen, games room, comfy beds, lovely lounge and the most beautiful view from a large conservatory. Open the patio doors and it was like a painting or tv scene, great grounds for exploring. Loved the walled garden and a good bbq area. Perfect. Thank you."
