The oak din­ing table can seat up to 34 when the oth­er cot­tages are booked in con­junc­tion with the Win­ery. See our list­ings for 26 and 32 under the same High­er Wis­combe name.

Near the South West Coast Path and the Juras­sic Coast World Her­itage Site, the prop­er­ty sits in a pri­vate val­ley at the cen­tre of East Devon’s Nation­al Land­scape, with our own 52 acres to explore, includ­ing woods, orchards, fields and streams.

Dur­ing the sum­mer, there is a heat­ed out­door pool which is shared by all of the cot­tages and oper­ates on a timetable sys­tem mean­ing that you have exclu­sive use with­in your slots. We have a games room which has a table ten­nis table and table football.
