About the Owner

Clive and I decided a couple of years ago it was time for a life style change. If we didn't get on and do it, it would never happen! This place became available so we decided to go for it. We love and know this area of Devon it has just so much to offer.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Corinne, Dear Clive, that was one of our most lovely holidays we've ever spent. We like your house and your dogs and also the lake and the whole surroundings. We spent 2 very relaxing weeks with our 3 teenagers. We're sure we will come back soon. Thank you very much especially for the nice chats we've had. Wish you the very best.

A Delightful Experience

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I were pleasantly surprised on arrival a the property as to how picturesque the grounds were, and the internal size of the holiday let. Local towns worth a visit were withing easy reach from Honiton. The owners were very friendly and helpful. The property is highly recommended if you want to get away from the "hussle and bussle" of daily life...

Location

From the Owner

Why this property.. it's just perfect (I know we are bias, but our guests always agree). The location is so quiet,rural and in an area of outstanding natural beauty. Yet we are only a short drive from the Jurassic Coast and the various beach locations that offers. We are only 2.5 miles from the A303/A30 and 4 miles from the A35 but you can't hear a sound of road traffic. Bliss!!

Activity and Interests

Car: recommended

Coast/Beach:

Blue Ball is a twenty minute drive from the Jurassic Coast with its many beaches.The Jurassic Coast an official an official World Heritage Site, is a must-visit for anyone interested in geology, history or stunning coastal scenery, and some of the 95-mile long stretch’s most scenic spots can be found around the Lyme Regis area. Places worth exploring include the Blue Lias cliffs – which are abundant with rare ammonites and other fossils – and the inspirational Pinhay Bay

Travel:

Exeter Airport would be the closest location.

The use of a car would be essential.

Distances:

Honiton & Axminster would be the nearest market towns. Many National Trust properties in the area. the National Parks of Dartmoor and Exmoor are within an hours drive.

Further Details:

Within the area we have excellent farm shops, with local produce and good restaurant facitlites. At Axminster you will find Hugh Fearnley- Whittingstalls River Cottage Canteen and just outside Axminster you will find his HQ which is Park Farm where his many courses are held. (See his webpage for details)

Facilities

From the Owner

There are parts of the property dating back to the 14th Century and the remainder of the dwelling has been carefully constructed in local stone. All set within a side of the valley within the Blackdown Hills. This is a great area for walking, cycling and horse riding as not only do we have off road tracks but the lanes are so quiet, you would be lucky to see more than a handful of vehicles in a day. Within the property is a large lake with seats placed around the grounds for guests to sit and enjoy the environment, if you are really lucky along with all the wildlife you may get to see the Kingfisher. In addition, we have just had our oil boilers and elderly stanley range removed, in it's place we now have ground source heating and solar panels, which supply all the water water and heating we could need, with the energy being pulled from the lake.
