Cadhay is a beautiful house in East Devon, perfect for family parties or special celebrations. There is room for 36 guests to stay over the weekend or a week; accommodation is offered in the main house, Stables, Coach house and Cider Press (all rated ‘gold’ by VisitEngland).

Cadhay House itself has 12 bedrooms, sleeping 22. Three of the bedrooms have four-poster beds, and there is a downstairs bedroom, with an en-suite with disabled facilities.

There is plenty of space in Cadhay for guests to enjoy their time together, whether that’s in the kitchens and comfortable reception rooms, the library or the study.

The house sits in beautifully restored gardens (that carry their own fame), and that lead gently down to medieval fishponds.

Further cottages on the estate can sleep 14; the Stables and Coach House sleep a further 12 (with 6 guests in each) and the Cider Press sleeps 2.
