General Info

Bickleigh 1 mile. Figtree Cottage is situated on the steep slopes overlooking the stunning Exe Valley in Mid Devon. A wooden construction by Swedish experts, this detached Devon cottage sits on the site of an old sheep shearing shed. The cottage is in a peaceful rural location, a mile from the noted beauty spot of Bickleigh. On the grounds of the owners' farmhouse, Fig Tree Cottage has its own private driveway, with far-reaching, stunning, countryside views and spacious rooms, ideal for a family looking to enjoy a cottage holiday in Devon. There is a sitting room with lovely oak floor, warming wood-burning stove and large TV with surround sound. The kitchen/dining room is a bright, sunny room overlooking the picturesque garden. In this Devon cottage, there are also four large, beautifully furnished bedrooms, one en-suite, with two further bathrooms situated over the ground and first floors, for convenience. The large, private garden at your Devon cottage is a perfect place to enjoy the panoramic views on a summer's day. The garden is west-facing and during the summer months the sunsets are breath-taking. Even in peak summertime this part of Mid Devon is tranquil and quiet. A walk up the lane reveals a different, but equally stunning, view from every gateway. Just one mile down the lane from the cottage, is Bickleigh Mill, a historic water mill, café and gift shop, where you can spend the day dining alfresco by the River Exe. The cottage is situated within easy driving distance of both Dartmoor and Exmoor National Parks. Visit one of the many National Trust houses in the area surrounding your Devon cottage, or visit the small market town of Tiverton nearby. Explore the historic city of Exeter with its impressive cathedral, excellent shopping malls, galleries, bars and restaurants. The cottage is midway between Devon’s two coastlines, convenient for a day out to either. A stay at this well-appointed Bickleigh cottage will certainly be a Devon family holiday to remember.

Beautiful haven

Arrived 12th Sep, after a 5 hour car journey arrived to a blissful area of Devon. The cottage is tastefully decorated, well equipped and so quiet! Dave and Ali gave us a warm welcome and left a well received welcome pack and cream tea. The cottage is not far from Tiverton so the big Tesco supplied our stay as well as local produce shops. We visited Bickleigh, Tiverton, Lyme Regis, Exeter, Exmouth, Polperro, Ilfracombe, Woolacombe and Sidmouth. Polperro, Lyme Regis and Sidmouth being our favourites. Nothing nicer than spending a day out and then having a bbq at the cottage followed by star gazing from the hot tub and a glass of wine! The hot tub is lovely and warm and a must after a long day out! We were supposed to be going abroad this year but didn’t want to risk it due to covid and this cottage popped up last minute, it is specially covid cleaned too which put our minds at rest! Has to be in my top ten holidays... just a stunning location and clean and well equipped with lovely owners, they should be proud of what they have achieved here and we will recommend to our friends and will definitely return! Also a very friendly dragonfywe nicknamed Dave came to see us several times a day! Thanks for making memories Ali and Dave x


A beautiful house in a beautiful location, the owners are amazingly helpful if required. The house sits in a large garden, very safe for kids of all ages. Couldn't recommend enough, looking to book for next year

Perfect Short Break

Booked at short notice, but what a gem. 4 bedroom cottage with all the home comforts you need. The hosts Dave and Ali were so helpful and accommodating and nothing was too much trouble. The cottage is finished to a very high standard and in a perfect location. Hot tub is an added bonus and was wonderful at night to sit and star gaze. We will definitely be back.
