‘Interiors’ magazine described Brooks Cottage in 1990 as being ‘a cottage that grows out of field in Devon. Meadow grass and wild flowers creep up to the cobbled front step, hills bristling with oak thickets rise up on two sides of the house, and brooks border the others. There is no sign of any other human habitation, not even a tarmac road.’The same holds true today, some twenty-four years later!

Brooks Cottage dates back to the 1500's, and truly appears built into the landscape, tucked into the steep slope that flanks the cottage. The house is wonderfully preserved due to being tucked away from the elements, and boasts an astonishing array of original features.

- Stepping through the front door you find a large sitting room to the left with grand open fire, and plenty of cosy seating.
- To the right of the entrance is the fully equipped kitchen, complete with an Aga,  Magimix and basic cooking bits like olive oil, salt. There's also an open fire in the kitchen with logs ready to be lit.
- The entire first floor boasts atmospheric high ceilings that add a subtle atmosphere of grandeur to this quaint cottage.
- Two bedrooms on the first floor, one to the left and one to the right of the stairs.
- One bedroom is en-suite and the other bathroom is on the landing.
- Really comfortable (and very large beds) with luxurious linen
- Some good books ....
- Basic Sky television, Netflix, Wi-Fi and an iPod dock
- If it is hot, there is a nearby pond nearby for wild swimming
In a separate building close to the cottage are a washing machine and separate drier, a freezer and large fridge.
