Broad Ley Cottage


Broadclyst, Devon

+ Add to favourites


This section of the page features an image gallery, so if you're using a screen reader you may wish to jump to the main content.

These three adjoining cottages together form Mooredge Cottages: a thatched row (formerly one farmhouse) close to the village of Broadclyst, on the edge of the Killerton estate and a few miles north-east of Exeter.

The cottages are a marvellous example of traditional Devon building and contain many original features including open-beamed ceilings, inglenook fireplaces and latticed windows. The three cottages share a large garden and parking area.

Close to home, there is more than enough of interest on the Killerton estate alone to occupy an entire holiday. There is a pub and shop within walking distance in Broadclyst.

With Dartmoor within easy reach, the popular south coast nearby and the rural countryside of East Devon on their doorsteps, these cottages make an ideal base for exploring some of Devon's finest scenery.

    Clean cottage

    The overall experience was lovely. The cottage was packed with everything we needed and more. I could not fault the cleanliness of the cottage and we were very comfortable at the property. The location was perfect with Killerton down the road and within driving distance of the coast and Exeter Town center close by. The local pub (The Red Lion Inn)was also very nice and ideal for a few drinks and something to eat.

    Comfortable and well presented accommodation.

    The accommodation was very comfortable and well presented. We loved the accessibility to the cycle path right by the cottage giving easy safe access to Broadclyst and Killerton for running and walking. The wood burning stove made the atmosphere perfect for Christmas.

    Clean and cosy cottage

    The cottage was beautifully clean and cosy. We arrived very early just to find the cottage in daylight before heading off to the coast. The caretaker was busy cleaning but she suggested we put our things in the fridge and cases in the lounge if we wanted to. She was very friendly and thoughtful. The whole NT cottage experience is always very calming and relaxing.

    Practical and comfortable..

    The things that made our stay enjoyable were: The living room area of the cottage. The quality of the sofas and the quality of the kitchen area. The cottage and furnishings were not overly fussy but pratical and comfortable.
