About Forest Cottage

A fairy-tale thatch cottage in a magical forest setting.

There’s always something magical about staying in the midst of a forest; the eerie silence, the flittering of wildlife and carpets of spring flowers. Like the setting of a fairy-tale, this dreamy thatch cottage lies in the heart of the Ashclyst Forest, on the Killerton estate. You could explore for hours, before making your way back to warm by the log-burner in this cosy hide-away.

You could also explore the rest of the Killerton estate; its main house, gardens and parklands. Many events take place here throughout the year, from guided walks to outdoor theatre shows, so be sure to check them out before you leave. 

And if you’re staying a little longer, why not venture to the wild uplands of Dartmoor. Or for a day at the seaside, drive to Exmouth, just a 30-minute drive to the south.

About the Acorn rating

We have applied a 1-5 acorn rating to each cottage to be used only as a guide that covers location, style of interior and facilities you may be looking for. The range runs from 1 Acorn at a more basic level such as Bird How which due to its stunning yet remote location doesn’t have a caretaker through to 5 Acorns at the highest level – such as Shute Barton.

Cottage pricing is not judged on the Acorn rating alone and as all our cottages are of an individual nature we recommend that all factors are considered when making your choice.
