Located to the outskirts of the pretty East Devon village of Whimple, Hillcrest offers a single level holiday retreat ideal for couples or small families. The property has been recently modernised and provides fresh, comfortable as well as home from home accommodation. Follow the sun and open the French doors onto the mature front and rear gardens which boast long distance countryside views. 

Whimple provides a convenient base from which to explore the many attractions of East Devon’s countryside and coastline. Enjoy car free days via the village’s train station – travel west for Exeter’s shops, cathedral and quayside or go east to explore the many Antique shops of Honiton or the market town of Axminster. Wonderful coastal walks are found at Sidmouth and Budleigh Salterton, or alternatively make some sandcastles upon the long stretch of sand at Exmouth. By day, explore several local National Trust properties, a plethora of walks across the Otter Valley or a family day out at Crealy Adventure Park; and by night, sample the locally renowned village eateries and nearby restaurants.
