The local area has plenty of wildlife. Badgers, deer, foxes, rabbits, numerous butterflies, buzzards, woodpeckers, sparrow hawks, owls - and the very rare Dartford warbler are regularly seen by visitors. Within the larger garden there is a breeding colony of horseshoe bats - these can be observed leaving their roost at dusk.By the Way Cottage is close to many footpaths taking you through varied and beautiful countryside - woods, rolling countryside, and river banks. The nearest village is 1.5km away and has a pub, ( serving very good food at reasonable prices ) village shop and post officeand a fish and chip shop....
Getting around
Car required. Buses 1km away with public car parking nearby -frequent services to Exeter, Sidmouth, Budleigh Salterton & Exmouth Trains from Exeter and Exmouth - fantastic coastal train ride from Exmouth to Torquay along the Exe estuary and Devon coastline
