About Viv and Tony Killeen
We currently live in Halberton, within half an hour of the cottage.
Viv and Tony Killeen purchased this Cottage in 2006
Why Viv and Tony Killeen chose Bishop's Nympton
We had often visited North Devon when our children were young. Eventually, we decided to buy a holiday home there. The Pottery was the first of many that we went to see - none of the others felt like a home from home. We bought it, then decided we would let others enjoy it too. We have been letting it for holidays since 2008.

Lovely little cottage, excellent comms. Tucked away in a quiet village location but with good access to walls on export or beaches along north devon seafront. Lovely gesture and thoughtfulness of scones, clotted cream and jam on arrival plus a couple of pints of milk so able to unwind straight away. All on all a fabulous break in a lovely village close to all you could need and plenty of information 're local attractions/ places to visit. You will not be disappointed.
Thank you for your review, Sean, and for choosing us for your holiday. I'm glad you found information useful, and enjoyed the cream tea - I hope you put the jam on first!
A wonderful discovery
A superb charming cottage and garden in a friendly village. This was a great base to explore the wonders of the area, from coast, zoos, to walks on the Exmoor. We traveled with two teenage children, which we know are not always the easiest to entertain. The area had lots of activities to suit everyone and every budget.
The cottage had everything we required, clean comfortable beds, fresh towels, log fire, shower, WiFi and fully equipped kitchen. To be able to sit in front of a real fire after a walk on Exmoor, after a warming home cooked meal is a delight. However, the availability of gorgeous food in the local pubs and restaurants can be a more than valid reason not to cook. The Stag Inn in Rackenford was a absolute joy, and is well worth the short drive. The local village shop had most things we needed and the local supermarket was a short 5 to 10 min drive away.
The owners communication was always both prompt and extremely helpful.
This was a wonderful find and we would recommend the cottage without hesitation. We certainly hope to return in the future.
Literally! Went home with a sore head due to low beams and doorways.
Hard to park car anywhere.
Still a quaint cottage in a nice village. Ideal for short motorcyclists.!
The cottage was a real delight. Very atmospheric. Superb thatch roof, internal beams. Lovely garden . The perfect location to access North Devon.
Over our three days we did the SW coastal path at Heddon Valley, RHS Rosehill Gardens at Torrington, Instow beach, Tarr Steps, saw deer on the moor.... all magnificent. Weather was great. Couldn't have had a better time.
Really appreciated Tony and Viv's assistance and response.
Lovely thatch cottage in a very pretty village
Very friendly and helpful owners.
It is a beautiful Cottage, Tony and Viv were great hosts giving us all the local go to places and supplying our first cream tea of our holiday. It was like we stepped out of a time machine and left all the noise and stress of city life behind. Just a shame there was no pub within walking distance, but it didn't ruin our stay. Lovely cottage garden to the rear where you can sit and enjoy a glass or two on warmer evenings or in front of the log fire on cooler ones. Thanks again from Jon and Trish from Manchester, stayed May 2019.
Thank you Jon and Trish, for your kind review. We appreciate knowing that we are doing something right, and we are glad that you enjoyed your stay at the cottage. We are pleased also that our amateur guides to some of the special attractions of this beautiful county proved useful to you.
Come again, whenever you like!
