Escape to the idyllic Boswell Farm Cottages. Six historic and charming cottages located just a stones throw from the Jurassic coastline and beaches, and in the heart of the Devon countryside where you can relax and unwind, or head off for a day full of adventures!

The c19th Mill House was the former dairy and has been transformed into a delightful, character holiday cottage with private garden. With fabulous views of the Sweetcombe valley and a four poster bed in the master bedroom, the property can comfortably sleep up to 5 guests, or if let with the Cider House - up to 11 people .

Built in the 1850s, the Cider House was Boswell’s original press house. This lovely cottage has a private, enclosed garden and views over the old courtyard and the Sid Valley. The Cider House sleeps up to 6 people, or 11 if let with the Mill House.

With parts dating from the 1700s, The Granary is character holiday cottage sleeping up to 5 guests. It boasts fantastic views, and the private garden has an eating area adjoining the farm meadows – simply idyllic.

Shippen Cottage was built in the mid c19th as a purpose built shippen, or cowshed, where the cows would have all been milked by hand. Now a pretty holiday cottage that sleeps up to 4 guests, with enclosed private garden, which adjoins pasture and beyond with stunning views, so is very peaceful.

Built in the 1890’s and originally a ‘linhay’ or open fronted barn for storing horse drawn carts, The Linhay is now a spacious and comfortable holiday cottage, sleeping 6. The property enjoys meadow views and its patio doors open onto the private cottage garden - the perfect place to relax after a day of Devon exploration!

Hayloft Cottage is a charming holiday cottage tucked away in a corner of the historic courtyard. Sleeping up to 4, the property has patio doors leading straight onto the secluded, private garden with its lovely views over farmland and the enchanting Sid Valley.

Boswell is the perfect location for exploring the delights of East Devon. Take a stroll through charming Devon villages, such as Branscombe and Beer. Explore the dramatic scenery of Dartmoor and Exmoor and discover the many fascinating National Trust properties in the area.

The Historic towns of Lyme Regis, Ottery St Mary, Honiton (the Antiques Centre of the South West) and the Cathedral City of Exeter are all within easy reach.

There are a variety of activities to suit all ages and tastes from golf, pony trekking and equestrian activities to beautiful countryside and coastal walks or simply relaxing on one of Devon's beautiful beaches.

There are outdoor pursuits to suit all ages and tastes. Close by are three golf courses, pony trekking, gliding and rock climbing. There are clean and safe beaches at Sidmouth and fabulous water sport opportunities such as sailing, kayaking, paddle boarding, sea angling, swimming.
