About Wydcombe Cottage

See if you can spot red squirrels when you stay at this former farm worker’s cottage.

Situated in a picturesque valley, Wydcombe is a former farm labourer’s cottage with just a few other dwellings surrounding it. Boasting two wood burning stoves, this cosy cottage offers the perfect secluded escape. 

Breathe in a welcome dose of country air as you make your way around the cottage’s peaceful surroundings. See if you can spot some of the local wildlife, the area is a haven for rare red squirrels and bee-eaters. 

Nearby, St Catherine’s lighthouse juts out into the sea. Explore the wild coastline here before heading to the 16th-century Buddle Inn for some refreshments.

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.
