Overview

About the property

Villa in Penncross, Hemyock, Devon, England - Enjoy The View From Our Outdoor Hot Tub Too!

Sunnybank is a villa-style property in the heart of the little-known but beautiful Blackdown Hills. Situated in the lee of Penncross Hill and reached by a quiet country lane, Sunnybank boasts unequaled panoramic views of the Culm Valley. We have furnished Sunnybank in a modern but luxurious style with guests requirements specifically in mind. All creature comforts have been provided from plenty of comfortable seating in the living room through top-of the-range kitchen appliances to en suite bedrooms with super-king sized beds. Oil-fired central heating keeps the house warm when required and there is hot water on demand. Pool,Table Football and Darts are available in the games room and a boule pitch for the more active outside. Sunnybank has a large sheltered terraced garden with plenty of room for the kids to run around and adults sit and relax, perhaps enjoying a soak in our hot tub. WiFi internet is available, ideal for surfing the web or keeping in touch with family and friends.

About Catherine Elcock

Sunnybank overlooks Culm Pyne, the farm where me (Cath) and my partner Guy live and work. Our lives are shared with a variety of hounds and terriers and two' hairy ponies' whom I seem to spend all my spare time running around after! We grow cider apples for a living; they are sold to both multinational companies and local artisan cider makers. So it is very likely that if you drink cider you will have tasted our apples! I also run a small livery yard, so horses are to be found grazing in the surrounding fields.

Catherine Elcock purchased this bungalow in 2011

Why Catherine Elcock chose Mid Devon

We purchased Sunnybank due to its proximity to the farm. But mostly we purchased Sunnybank for the views; looking across the Culm Valley on a clear day you can as far as Dartmoor. We feel there is nowhere with a more spectacular setting in the Blackdown Hills. Sunnybank is only 15 minutes from junction 26 of the M5 motorway and is only 1/2 mile from Hemyock with its shops, pubs and range of amenities. Yet it is set in a very quiet location, ideal for a peaceful and relaxing holiday.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Brilliant stay. We’ve had a very enjoyable say in an amazing house. Thank you for the warm welcome Cath. Everything thought of in house only suggestion would be additions of (thicker) curtains in bedroom as lighter mornings led to children being early risers. We are already deciding when we can come and stay again. (May 2015)

Lovely property, warm welcome, peaceful relaxing and enjoyable

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely short break we had. As a family with a wide range of ages (under 1 year to 80+ years) everyone was catered for brilliantly and there was plenty of space so that we didn't feel on top of each other. We were lucky to have nice weather so could enjoy the brilliant views from the living room and dining room windows and were able to go out and explore the surrounding areas, but if we had not had good weather there would have been plenty in the cottage to keep everyone amused. The cake and cider on arrival along with the warm greeting and tour from Cath was an added bonus 😀
