About Viv and Tony Killeen
We currently live in Bristol.
Viv and Tony Killeen purchased this Cottage in 2006
Why Viv and Tony Killeen chose Bishop's Nympton
We had often visited North Devon when our children were young. Eventually, we decided to buy a holiday home there. The Pottery was the first of many that we went to see - none of the others felt like a home from home. We bought it, then decided we would let others enjoy it too. We have been letting it for holidays since 2008.

Lovely thatch cottage in a very pretty village
Very friendly and helpful owners.
It is a beautiful Cottage, Tony and Viv were great hosts giving us all the local go to places and supplying our first cream tea of our holiday. It was like we stepped out of a time machine and left all the noise and stress of city life behind. Just a shame there was no pub within walking distance, but it didn't ruin our stay. Lovely cottage garden to the rear where you can sit and enjoy a glass or two on warmer evenings or in front of the log fire on cooler ones. Thanks again from Jon and Trish from Manchester, stayed May 2019.
Amazing once you learn to duck😃
We loved our time at the cottage. It was a great location to see Devon. The cottage is small , cosy and quirky. My kids were absolutely fascinated that it was built over 200 years ago. If you're looking for a quaint English cottage, I am not sure it could get any better than this. Just remember to duck 😃
Really lovely....we loved the wonky floors and ceilings though my husband's head did suffer a little! Had everything we needed and more... Cosy and comfortable... Slept really well... And lots of info from Tony and Viv... Wish we could have stayed longer!
Thank you for your kind review, Elizabeth. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay at the Pottery, and look forward to welcoming you back another time! Summer is nice, as is autumn. Come to think of it, spring is pretty good too, and you enjoyed winter.
What a wonderful property. Very calming with everything you could need. The owner were lovely and nothing to much trouble. The cream tea when we arrived was a very nice touch
A cosy comfortable cottage
We had a pleasant stay in this lovely old cottage. There were a couple of problems during the week which the owner was very helpful in sorting out.
