Drake is well set up for those with impaired mobility having ramp access to the cottage & an accessible downstairs shower/WC.

The space
The living room, with ramped wheelchair access, is large and comfortable with a pine-stripped floor, wood burner, Welsh dresser, huge sofas and footstool. There is also a TV and DVD player. Leading off from this room, is a downstairs twin bedroom with a specially adapted en-suite shower room suitable for persons with impaired mobility. We have recently replaced the twin beds with interlocking beds, so a kingsize bed may be made up if preferred. Double doors open out onto the paved enclosed patio.

Upstairs, there are two large bedrooms – one twin and one double with a four poster bed. There is also a bathroom with shower over bath and WC.

On the ground floor a ramp leads to the enclosed paved patio area, where garden furniture and barbecue make this the perfect place to enjoy evening meals watching the setting sun.

Drake has inter-communicating doors with Rook Cottage next door. Double bookings are available for larger parties.

Guest access
Here at Great Gutton, we have 5 self catering cottages adjoining/surrounding the main thatched farm house. Each Cottage has its own private space but there is also plenty of garden and fields for you all to explore. We are very relaxed about folk being here and guests can choose to keep themselves to themselves, or to chit chat and make friends with fellow guests - it really is up to you!!
Great Gutton is a charming Grade II* listed Devonshire Thatched Farmhouse set in 21 acres of rolling countryside, offering dog friendly (in certain properties), self catering cottages in the heart of rural Devon. With the Games room and indoor heated swimming pool open all year, there really is something for everyone – whatever the weather!
Superb for large gatherings of up to 24, where folk can all have their own space but all come together, should they wish.
We have secure buildings for any bikes/surfboards/fishing rods and any other paraphernalia folk wish to bring.
A bank supply of cots, hi chairs and stair gates are available on request.
A little bit about Mid Devon and where we are:
We are 40 minutes from both the North and South coast. The busy market town of Crediton is nearby and Exeter is only 20 minutes away with its historic quayside, Cathedral and superb shopping facilities. Dartmoor and Exmoor as well as North and South Coast beaches are accessible from here. A car would be handy when staying here but there is a train station and mainline buses running from Crediton, plus local taxi firms.

Devon, England, United Kingdom

The Surrounding Area – Crediton
Crediton is in the centre of Devon, nestled between Exmoor and Dartmoor, it is ideally placed for exploring this beautiful county. The North and South coasts are within an hours drive and the Eden project a similar distance. Many National Trust properties, historic houses, gardens, castles, gorges, forges and mills can easily be accessed.

Crediton town itself boasts the well known St. Boniface church, a lively monthly Farmers Market selling locally sourced products including organic vegetables, cheeses and home produced meat. The high street has the usual shops with excellent butchers, bakery and wonderful delicatessen. Independent coffee shops line the colourful High street. We also have two major supermarkets on the outskirts of the twon. There are golf courses and fishing lakes nearby or you could go rambling, karting, horse riding or cycling. On the other hand you could just stay here and enjoy a piece of heaven in Devon!
