Holiday homes don’t come cuter than Folly Cottage. Inside, there’s a stone fireplace, a wood burner and oak beamed ceilings, and on the outside, the walls are white-washed and the roof is thatched.
Plus, it’s on the edge of the Blackdown Hills, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. With room for up to 5 people, it’s a dog-friendly place that is perfect for a getaway in Devon.
Exmoor, Lyme Regis, Tiverton and Exeter are all within a short drive, so there is plenty to see in this area. Walks in the country, fossil hunting on the beach and dining in fine restaurants are just some of the great things to do.

About Folly Cottage
Folly Cottage may have been built in the 17th century, but it has every modern day convenience you will need. A dishwasher, washing machine and dryer helps when it’s time to clear up, and a DVD player is perfect for a late night movie.
This adorable semi-detached cottage has an abundance of character features. An enclosed courtyard garden comes with garden chairs so you can sit out in the evening and sip a glass of wine under the stars.
Leaving your doggy best friend at home is out of the question when you can take them to places like this. The cottage welcomes one dog to stay, and they will have a great time here. Stroll in the Culm Valley together, or pop down to Monmouth Beach – there is so much nearby that is dog-friendly.

Things To Do in Cullompton
Cullompton is in the Culm Valley, part the Blackdown Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Footpaths and bridleways criss-cross the countryside giving you many places to roam.
The most outstanding building in the pretty town of Cullompton is St Andrews Church. Its sandstone tower can be seen for miles, and the inside is decorated in scarlet, green and gold. There are a handful of cafes, coffee shops and tea rooms in town, so it’s the place to come for refreshments.
The city of Exeter is close by, with a cathedral, Royal Albert Memorial Museum, underground passages and a quayside to explore, the choice of things to do here is endless. Exmoor National Park is within driving distance, and it’s great for long walks on wild hillsides. For time by the sea, head for Lyme Regis and Sidmouth – both can be reached in about 45 minutes. And Monmouth Beach is dog-friendly all year round, as it’s on the Jurassic Coast, you can search for fossils while you’re here.
Folly Cottage is full of character, and the ideal place to stay in Devon with your family and the dog. There’s a courtyard area for when the weather is fine, and if you visit in the colder months, the log burner in the living room will warm you up in no time. Sit around the kitchen table at breakfast, and plan the day’s events as you tuck into your toast.
You can choose a day at the beach or walks on Exmoor. And you can cycle, hike or horseride along the routes of the Blackdown Hills.
For a look back in time, explore the centuries of history at Exeter, the city was here before the Romans invaded so there is plenty to learn about.
