The Cottage

Holiday Cottage in East Devon

Higher Yellands Cottage is a self catering holiday cottage located at the end of a quiet country lane close to the East Devon village of Whimple. The traditional cob cottage has retained many of the original character features but we have introduced modern high standards in the kitchen and bathrooms.

The kitchen door opens onto a pretty, walled courtyard, complete with patio table, chairs, pots of flowers and an umbrella. There is also a tennis court adjacent to the cottage, which you are very welcome to use so don’t forget your racquets!
