Longmeadow 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. 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 Devons finest scenery. Closer 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.

    Very well presented property

    Our thanks to the caretaker and grounds man - the property was very well presented. We visited a number of Trust properties and the single biggest factor we noted was the friendliness of the staff/volunteers - gone is the slightly stuffy attitude and the feeling that we were privileged to be allowed to visit. For Longmeadow cottage you really do need to give a latitude and longitude for the satnav - postcode is not enough. Fortunately we had got it located on Google Earth but someone else had reported trouble finding it.

    Character home

    Living in Australia and being English I miss old properties of character. it's a privilege to stay in a character home and to show my children them. We loved the enjoyment staying in a 16th century cottage with a thatch roof and a fire to keep us warm. A very different experience to what you can have in a holiday stay in Australia and exotic countries.

    Nicely prepared cottage

    The nicely prepared cottage and the warm welcome was an excellent start. An other very positive experience was the direct support after calls to the "help-line". During the stormy Easter days, we had problems with an old willow. These problems have been solved in a very short time by your very kind and efficient staff. For us, this was very convincing and an excellent promotion for holidays with NT.

    Well equipped thatched cottage

    We all enjoyed relaxing in a well equipped thatched cottage full of character and in close proximity to many local attractions- we especially enjoyed the log fire!

    Well equipped cottage

    Excellent service from the Central office and a rapid response to two minor problems i.e A Wasp nest in the chimney made our stay enjoyable. The cottage was extremely well equipped, everything that we could need which was all of a high quality. A quiet rural location, but not too far from major attractions and the beach. The welcome tray with a pack of National Trust biscuits was a bonus after time spent on the M6 and M5!
