They are surrounded by about 200 acres of fields and bluebell woods which you are welcome to wander and enjoy deer and badger watching, the stream, trout lake (fishing), duck pond (carp fishing) and the gorgeous views. Lower Wadden Farmhouse in East Devon has an exciting range of activities is available, including clay pigeon shooting, amphibious vehicles and archery - tailor-made packages can be arranged.

Peacocks strut the grounds, together with roaming chickens and ducks (eggs to collect), and the young, friendly owners who live next door are happy to show you their unusual pets (pigs, alpacas, ostrich, goats). Lower Wadden Farmhouse is south-facing and detached with an attached annexe. The Barn at Lower Wadden Farmhouse has the same 180 degree views and range of activities.

In the garden (furniture, barbecue, swing, slide, climbing frame), a summer house/games room (half-sized pool table, table tennis, table football) and, in the large central courtyard between the house and its annexe, a covered hot tub and trampoline.

Cottage Review:  

Lovely large cottage. Lots of space. Clean. Lovely having chickens on the land and being able to collect eggs. The accommodation had everything you could think of. Down side was weather (rained 6 out of the 7 days but that is British weather for you) Downside to property was WiFi. It was there but very poor. Only worked in 2 rooms. This was at very low speeds. Another down side was TV's yes in every bedroom however out of the rooms used only one worked well. Others no signal. Two lounge rooms. One with basic sky tv which worked other struggled to get a channel on the tv. The internet was not strong enough to connect to personal net flicks or Amazon for tv. I would recommend taking lots of DVDs if wanting to watch something. My son upon arrival sat on a bed and the bed collapsed. It was obviously broke from previous holiday makers but hadn't been spotted as there were very few slats of wood in tact. We had problems with the heating. If the weather had been nice it would not of been a problem but due to bad weather during the afternoon the temperature dropped.

We stayed in this property July 2020, it was a bonus given we assumed this break would be cancelled due to covid 19!

We arrived at the property armed with disinfectant, sanitizer galore only to find the house impeccably clean. Measures had been taken to ensure the house was prepared for our arrival in accordance with covid measures.

The house itself is fantastic, so much space we kept losing children! Everything you could need for a family break is included. We ate as a family every evening and were able to cook a variety of meals. This was perfect as we had

Fourteen of us stayed here for a long weekend in February. The place is huge and probably the best equipped cottage we have rented. There is loads to do in the area with Seaton, Sidmouth, Beer and Lyme Regis all within a short drive. Hot tub is a great addition. It would have been five stars but we had an issue with the boiler in the annexe. The owner was really helpful and additional heating was brought in promptly. Highly recommend this place we all agreed we would love to return in the future. Thank you

We went for a girls weekend at Lower Wadden Cottage and absolutely loved it! The cottage was clean, nicely furnished, spacious, well equipped and the large hot tub is an added bonus! The cottage is located in a perfect position and has beautiful views. There are lovely walks nearby and only it's only a short trip into Lyme Regis. Well worth booking!
