About The Crabtree Cottages at Killerton

Located at the entrance to the wonderful Killerton Estate in Devon, these pretty cottages nestle in acres of countryside, looking towards Ashclyst Forest, perfect to get the family or friends together for a holiday.

Two individual cottages sleeping 10 in total plus 2 dogs.

The School House, which sleeps 6, is where Sunday school was held in days gone by. Today, it’s been renovated to provide a luxurious and relaxed cottage. The Lodge next door, which sleeps 4 was formerly the rector's cottage. At these cottages, you’ll be close to amazing walking country where you can all explore the estate and beyond.

The cottages sit 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. 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.

About the Acorn rating

To help find the best cottage for you, we have created our own quality rating system for our holiday cottages called the Acorn rating. Ranging from 1-5 Acorns, the rating gives you an indication of a property’s facilities, fixtures and fittings, with five being the highest quality level. The Acorn rating is not connected to any other industry rating system that may be used for holiday cottages and is only to be used as a guide that covers location, style of interior and the facilities you may be looking for. We do not set our cottage pricing based on the Acorn rating we have given a cottage as all our cottages are of an individual nature. Therefore, we recommend that all factors are considered when making your choice. In addition, some of our cottages are curated to be sympathetic to their time period. This means that they might not have all of the aspects of modern living, but impress in so many other ways.

1 Acorn: simple living accommodation with basic furniture and fixtures fit for purpose and clean. Running water and a toilet are provided. There could be some limitations to heating and washing facilities – details of these will be stated clearly on the cottage's webpage. Bedding, linen and towels are supplied with a few exceptions, which are again clearly stated). Facilities for basic catering and living are provided. In general, a 1 Acorn cottage does not have WiFi.

2 Acorn: a mid-quality range of furniture and fittings. Bathroom facilities are basic or there may be a high number of guests to bathroom ratio depending on the size of the cottage. Very few 2 Acorn cottages have WiFi and the kitchen white goods and washing facilities are basic. Bedding, linen and towels are supplied in all 2-5 Acorn cottages.

3 Acorn: a good, standard offer. Generally it is correctly proportioned for the number of guests but could have a few compromises, for example a small kitchen, or a lower bathroom to guest ratio. The variety of white goods available will be better than a 2 Acorn cottage.

4 Acorn: these cottages have more premium furniture, fittings and lighting. Additionally the ratio of bathrooms to guests is likely to be higher, and the bathrooms would be more likely to have separate and spacious showers instead of showers over baths.

5 Acorn: a luxury accommodation offer with very few limiting factors. This is the highest offer available. It is well-equipped and has spacious facilities throughout the cottage or is set within an extraordinary location or building. The furniture is of a high standard, and has real comfort for modern living.
