Mattress 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.

    Easily accessible

    It was lovely to be able to walk on National Trust land straight from the cottage door. The location was very quiet but easily accessible. It was great to be near a large NT property with good catering facilities and we made full use of these!

    Beautiful spot!

    The customer service centre was very good and even though we had a minor problem with the cottage it was quickly resolved by the caretaker and the maintenance man. The cottage was a beautiful spot but was in easy reach of the coast and a city centre.

    Excellent standard of cottage

    Good, quiet location. Great central place for days out. Niki the cleaner was very friendly and suggested a great day out to a la rounde. The standard of the cottage was excellent.
