Overview
More
Cadhay is a beautiful and historic Tudor manor house offering luxurious self-catering accommodation for up to 22 people, with three holiday cottages on-site providing additional accommodation for 12 – 14 people. The house is located at Ottery St Mary in the heart of rural East Devon, ten miles east of Exeter and six miles from the sea at Sidmouth. The house is licensed for Weddings and many couples have taken advantage of the Manor House and its grounds for their special day. We are also privileged to host many parties and gatherings of family and friends. Cadhay offers a blend of history and charm with the peace and tranquility of the Devon countryside.
