Set in stunning countryside, yet only 2 miles from Exeter Cathedral. Step out of your own front door into an idyllic setting of specimen trees surrounded by woodland and farmland. There is a very pretty courtyard area right outside your front door, with rattan furniture and giant cushions (in the summer months) for breakfast or evening drinks. The birdsong in our little woodland dip is simply magical.
The detached, self-contained cottage holds 3 beautifully presented spaces with cute decor touches & characterful, quirky style... The main studio is a 12x12ft living and sleeping area, and has a chic leather sofa; the solid wooden bed opens out into 2 full size singles that can be arranged at level height close together to create a king size sleeping space or can be set further apart, and which can also be used for lounging in the day.
The separate kitchen area has a great Tepenyaki grill, mini oven, grill, hob, a steamer, a slow cooker, soup maker, microwave, soya milk maker, toaster, kettle, cafetière etc. There’s an extendable dining or working table, a good selection of DVDs for adults and children; interesting art, an occasional table, clothes hanging space, drawers, interesting books, local maps and guide books, good board games, chess etc.
We also provide additional sleeping options and a toy box for younger guests as required. The two further spaces house the kitchenette which leads in turn onto the shower room and loo, which is separated off by a posable wooden wallscreen you can arrange to suit your preference.
You have a stunning, courtyard style outdoor seating area right outside your door, complete with lanterns and candles.
Extendable/flexible wooden wallscreen provides bathroom privacy.
Both wood framed beds are extremely comfortable and sturdy. Slide the second bed out from underneath the top one and raise it up to the same height to create a king size sleeping space.
Please note that currently the TV is for playing a massive selection of DVDs plus some online subscription channels such as Netflix. Terrestrial TV channels coming soon.

Planning your stay at the Goose House
I recommend the tiny - if slightly pricey - Dr. Ink’s Curiosities down on Exeter Quay for a truly exquisite Victorian-themed cocktail; the Nobody Inn in Doddiscombsleigh is a twenty minute drive away down winding country lanes for a rural old world pub lunch or supper (book ahead); if you’re downtown, head for Gandy Street, which inspired Diagon Alley in the Harry Potter books, and has some good Indy shops, eateries and bars; the award winning and beautiful RAMM museum in Queen Street is really worth a look, and nearby the Phoenix Arts centre has some great international arts and music events. The Double Locks is our closest, lovely pub on the river - great for lunch, local ales (and occasional suppers - check ahead). Exeter Picturehouse is our fantastic local art house cinema where you can recline on a velvet sofa with a beer and interesting snacks; Go Ape in Haldon Forest, just around the corner from us, will have you flying through the tree canopy, and the hiking and bike hire in Haldon Forest and the paddle board or kayak hire along the River Exe all mark only the start of wonderful things to do in just minutes from the Goose House. Do please message me on here for more ideas of things to do which may be more suited to your own personal tastes. There is so much more! Our Airbnb guide book section on the website has a few additional details, and there are maps, leaflets and guides in boxes and on shelves inside to Goose House itself too. See you soon!
Tam and Pete.
