About Mattress Cottage

A traditional thatch cottage stay on the border of the Killerton estate.

Stay in a traditional Devon farmhouse complete with a thatch roof, low-beam ceilings and an ingle-nook fireplace. Mattress Cottage is one of three holiday homes that make up this large medieval cottage. It sits on the border of the Killerton estate and shares its garden with the adjoining holiday cottages. 

Explore the house, gardens and parklands of Killerton. Lots of events take place here throughout the year, from guided walks to cider festivals, so be sure to see what’s on before you leave. For a classic pub lunch, head into nearby Broadclyst. 

Further afield, explore the wilds of Dartmoor beacon or ramble across the starkly beautiful landscape taking in the waterfalls and rock formations. Afterwards, refuel with a cream tea in the town of Ashburton at the edge of the moors.

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.
