The cottage is within two miles of the popular village of Churchinford and Honiton is roughly eight miles away. The property started life as two cottages before it was converted into one dwelling some time in the mid-1900s.

Yet, Windmill Cottage has retained a wealth of period charm and original characteristics can be seen throughout. Traditional features include beamed ceilings, windows seats, exposed stone walls and two impressive inglenooks, one with a superb Dovre wood burning fireplace, and the other with a woodburning stove. 
On the ground floor, there are two well-proportioned reception rooms divided by a good-sized kitchen/dining room, and a convenient study making home working a feasible option. Upstairs, there are three bedrooms with vaulted ceilings and a family bathroom.

Outside, there is a quaint, picture-perfect garden that has been beautifully landscaped to tie in with the natural environment. 
Profusely stocked with a wealth of colourful plants, well-established shrubs and trees, including a magnificent magnolia and fruit trees. The garden also has a ‘tucked away’ gravelled seating area that offers splendid views.
The property and garden are shielded from the road by a high flintstone wall allowing for complete privacy.
