A Large Family Friendly Holiday Cottage

The Coach House

The Coach House is the largest of our three holiday cottages on the Cadhay Estate. It overlooks the main house, in the peace and tranquility of the countryside. The Coach House is similar in size to The Stables and comfortably sleeps 6 in 3 double / twin rooms with a large yard next to it.

All our holiday cottages exude history and luxury. The Coach House is light, and very spacious, we’ve managed to retain many of its period features such as the exposed wooden beams upstairs. It is well furnished with some excellent antiques, interesting paintings, bright rugs and quality curtains.

If you’re looking for a relaxing self-catering break in beautiful surroundings then the Coach House is ideal for you and your group.

Spacious Holiday Accommodation

If you’re a family, group or couples looking to stay together for a short self catering break, then the Coach House is perfect. The ground floor is spacious with a well equipped kitchen / dining room and large lounge which has an extremely homely woodburner as the centerpiece. In the winter you can sit back and relax on our comfortable sofas with the wood burner roaring in the background. There are floor-to-ceiling windows with double French doors providing views and access to a front lawn.

Dog Friendly Facilities

We recognise that a lot of couples and families want to bring their dog with them when they get away for a short break. To accommodate this we’ve made sure that all our Luxury Cottages and the whole Cadhay Estate is dog friendly. Cadhay itself and the whole of East Devon provide you with many great walks to get out with your loyal friend. You can explore the Otter Valley or get away for a long walk on the South West Coastal Path.

Ottery is a peaceful and beautiful town, with excellent independent shops offering local food as well as one of the best wine merchants in the South West. If you want to go out for a meal there are plenty of great pubs and restaurants on your doorstep.

East Devon is an ideal place to enjoy walks, along the lovely Otter Valley, around West Hill and Woodbury Common, and on the South West Coast Path. If you want to explore the beach the seaside towns of Sidmouth, Budleigh Salterton, Exmouth, Branscombe, Beer, Seaton, Lyme Regis and West Bay are all short drives away.

What our visitors say

” Cadhay Estate is a beautiful escape to a calm and quiet retreat in a lovely part of the country.  The owner and caretaker are incredibly friendly and helpful. We have now stayed in The Stables and The Coach house, both are beautifully designed and carefully equipped.  We can’t fault the properties at all.  Highly recommended, we will be returning in the future.”
