Why April Cottage?

April Cottage is situated in the lovely, ribbon village of Chillaton. Perfect accommodation for your walking or cycling holiday, or just a retreat from the hustle and noise of everyday life.

Enjoy the sounds of the stream running beside the cottage. Relax under the wooden beams of the long room, beside the wood-burning stove. Cook in the well equipped kitchen. Eat at the farmhouse table. Walk in some of Devon’s finest countryside with the wilds of Dartmoor on your doorstep. Historic market town of Tavistock only eight miles away. Plenty of great food pubs within a short drive (or walk if you’re up for it!) and Exeter and Plymouth within 45 minutes drive. 50 minutes drive from Exeter international airport.

4 hours drive from central London and 4.5 hours from Brighton, just far enough to make you feel like you’ve really escaped….

What do we mean by sleeps 4 (6) ?

The cottage has two bedrooms (a twin and a double) and sleeps four people comfortably. Additional guests are welcome to sleep on the super-comfy, inflatable double mattress. It’s an Aerobed and if you haven’t slept on one before you’ll be amazed. It has a topper to make it extra comfy. You can either have this in the middle room – between the 2 bedrooms – or in the long room.
