Rural Holiday Cottage with Wonderful Countryside Views on Friendly Smallholding.

Overview

Property

Updated: 18-Nov-2016
Cottage in Stockland, Honiton, Devon, England - Stunning Hilltop Views, 20 Minute Drive To Jurassic Coast Beaches, Help to Feed the Animals.

A recently converted cottage in the beautiful East Devon countryside. The cottage is in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). The cottage makes the most of the stunning views from our hill top position. Great for walking and exploring the Blackdown Hills. The view from the bedrooms and the large private deck are really special.

Finished to a high standard, with every detail carefully thought out. We've tried to be as environmentally friendly as possible, installing solar panels to provide hot water, using responsibly sourced wood for the windows and doors made by a local craftsman, and using eco friendly paints and finishings wherever possible.

About the Owner

We always wanted to raise our own meat and grow our own fruit and veg, and to have a few more trees than big red buses to look at, so we're really pleased to have made the move from the big smoke

In our first year here, we did up the house and converted the old dairy into the lovely holiday cottage it now is. Now that the building work is over, we can concentrate on developing the smallholding to provide as much of our own food and fuel as possible.

We have two young children, so know all about the great local family attractions, and we're happy to help with information if you need it.

We love the slower pace of life, the great local food, and the friendly vibe in East Devon, and we hope we can share some of this great way of life with our visitors.

From the Owner

We love the slower pace of life, the great local food, and the friendly vibe in East Devon, and we hope we can share some of our bit of heaven with our guests. We chose a place that is easy enough to get to for our friends and family, but with the peace and quiet that comes with our lovely rural location. A short 20 minute hop to the beach too, and life is complete! Stockland village is really active, with events running all year. Just let us know if you would like to find out what's happening locally.

Notes:

  • Notes on accommodation: Golden Square Cottage was recently converted from an old dairy. We designed the cottage to make the most of the amazing views from our hill top position. The view from the bedrooms and the large private deck are really special. Finished to a high standard, with every detail carefully thought out. We've tried to be as environmentally friendly as possible, installing solar panels to provide hot water, using responsibly sourced wood for the windows and doors made by a local craftsman, and using eco friendly paints and finishings wherever possible. We run a smallholding, so you are welcome to spend some time with us helping to feed the animals and collect the eggs. We can show you where to go to watch the badgers at the end of our woods, and give you books to read all about the amazing wildlife on our doorstep. Swallows nest in the barn next to the cottage, and you can enjoy watching our four rare breed pigs in the paddock below the orchard. Outside: A large private deck with wooden table and chairs and a parasol ensure you can make the most of the amazing views and beautiful setting. A BBQ is provided, along with a home made picnic bench in the orchard below the deck. Enjoy exploring our woodlands and the common land that adjoins our farm, where you can look out for the deer, badgers and owls that live there. By walking across the field with our little flock of Shetland and Southdown sheep, you can reach a stile that leads into our woods. From there you can join up with a fairytale-like footpath leading down a small gully crisscrossed with pretty wooden bridges - a really idillic spot. The footpath leads down towards the Stockland turbaries, a large area of common land that has some unique habitats to explore. It's a nature loves paradise - endless opportunities for exploring, playing, climbing trees and hunting for bugs and other wildlife. Utility Room: Hoover, ironing board, iron, high chair, children's toys, clothes drier and pegs, cleaning equipment. Cleaning / Towels / Linen / Maid service: All bed linen and towels provided. Luxurious throws and blankets. The cottage is cleaned and towels and linen changed weekly.
