About Crabtree School HouseOn the wonderful Killerton Estate in Devon, this pretty 1930’s cottage nestles in acres of countryside, looking towards Ashclyst Forest, perfect for escaping the city.
With the estate chapel set just behind the cottage, the school house itself is where Sunday school was held in days gone by. Today, it’s been renovated to provide a luxurious and relaxed cottage, sleeping 6 that’s in a great place for meeting up with friends and family, with a location just off the M5. You’ll be close to amazing walking country where you can all explore the estate and beyond.
Once you’ve opened the front door of this cottage, you’ll find yourselves in the entrance hall, with access to the large open plan kitchen, ample dining area and main sitting room. There’s a lovely cosy snug as well, and lots of nods to the past with some of the 1930s fireplaces (not in use). One of the twin bedrooms is also on the ground floor, next to the downstairs bathroom. Upstairs you’ll find two beautiful double bedrooms, one double and another twin. You’ll also find a shower room up here. The upstairs rooms look out over the wonderful Killerton countryside and parkland. Outside there is a large enclosed garden with the same wonderful views. There is a table, chairs and a BBQ to use on sunny days.
The cottage sits on a quiet road on the Killerton Estate, and you’ll find 18th-century Killerton House, shop and café just a 10 minute stroll away across the estate. If there are more than 6 of you, then you can book the adjoining Crabtree School Lodge next door to sleep up to 10 across the two cottages. Killerton itself offers 6,400 acres for you to explore, filled with miles of footpaths and cycle paths that cross historic parkland, formal gardens and a wider agricultural estate. You can hop on to the trails from the cottage doorstep, so it’s the perfect spot for outdoor lovers and walkers.
Once you’ve explored everything Killerton has to offer, then Broadclyst is the closest village to the cottage, where you’ll find a village shop, post office and pubs and restaurants. Beyond that, the vibrant and historic city of Exeter is just 20 minutes away by car with its bustling mix of independent and big name shops, bars, restaurants, pubs, cinemas and theatres. And if you’re keen to explore more of Devon, then why not head into the wilds of Dartmoor, or the beach at Exmouth or Sidmouth? When you stay with us, the funds from your holiday go towards caring for special landscapes and places, like the Killerton Estate.
