Wayside is a fantastic rural retreat for large groups, especially if you like modern luxury. The secure gated grounds have a large terrace, a covered and heated pool, hot tub, barrel sauna, BBQ lodge, and an amazing children's play area with swings, a slide, climbing frame and trampoline. There's something for all ages which is why Wayside is fantastic for big family holidays, hen weekends, self-catering corporate away days, and of course, those big birthday/anniversary celebrations.
The peaceful location means you can truly relax and unwind, and the views are incredible, stretching across the Blackdown Hills AONB; go and discover it for yourselves, take a picnic, go walking, cycling or horseriding. Just a few miles away in Hemyock there's a village pub and shop; or go to The Strand Stores at Culmstock for a bite to eat after a stroll along the nearby River Culm or a climb up to Culmstock Beacon.
What makes a stay at Wayside unique?
Quiet country lanes take you to Wayside, tucked away in the beautiful Culm Valley in Devon. Go in through the coded security gates, park up and let your holiday begin. Step into a bright and airy hallway with the commodious living room off to the right; take your ease on the big fat leather sofas, get you all in here one evening for a movie night, with bowls brimming with popcorn and trays of your favourite drinks. By daytime just put your feet up, have a natter and enjoy the spectacular views of countryside that stretches on and on for miles.
To the right of the hallway is the spacious kitchen/dining room, all very modern and stylish, with a walk-in larder and all you need to cater for your large group. If you're here to celebrate something very special, like a big birthday or a significant anniversary, call in a tried and tested professional caterer; they'll create a feast fit for a king, leaving you to enjoy every moment of the occasion. Have fizz and canapes on the terrace, raise a toast before you gather round the table for dinner.
What can guests enjoy when staying in the Cullompton area?
If days out are on your agenda you'll have a great choice of things to do round here! Release your inner Lewis Hamilton at Mansell Raceway, or if you prefer to watch rather than participate, catch one of the crazy race days at Smeatharpe Stadium. If planes are more your thing go up to Dunkeswell Airfield and watch the goings on from the Aviator Cafe.
Have a ride on a horse drawn barge at Tiverton - drift along the Grand Western Canal, come back and have a cream tea in the Canal Tea Rooms and Garden or a drink on board Duck's Ditty Floating Cafe Bar. Nearby is Knightshayes (NT) where you can take in the splendour of the house and explore the vast grounds (don't miss the quirky bear hut); not much further is Killerton, also NT.
