Three Traditional Barn Conversions On a Hill Farm, With Beautiful Open Views - Pear Tree Cottage Sleeps 5 (3 Bedrooms)

Overview

Property

Updated: 08-Dec-2016
Cottages in Awliscombe, Nr. Honiton, South Devon, England - Peaceful Location On the Edge of the Blackdown Hills (AONB), Ideal for Exploring the South West.

Wadhayes Farm is a small family run working farm nestled on the southern edge of the Blackdown Hills with beautiful views all around. The farm, which has been in the same family for over 100 years, is located along a private lane in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, on the outskirts of the East Devon village of Awliscombe. The village is about 3 miles north of the busy market town of Honiton, famous for its antique shops and lace making and offering a good selection of cafes, pubs and restaurants. The beautiful Jurassic coast of East Devon and West Dorset is easily accessible by car; the popular coastal resorts of Sidmouth, Branscombe, Beer or Lyme Regis are between 15-25 minutes drive away. A wide range of local attractions will appeal to those of all ages including the gardens and maze at Escot, the Donkey Sanctuary at Sidmouth and the Playdome (a children’s all weather play centre) in nearby Honiton. The Otter Inn or the Honiton Inn, both serving food and realale are also within a mile and half of the farm. Dartmoor can easily be reached in about 45 minutes. Easy access to both the A303/A30 and M5 make the farm an ideal location for exploring the South West area. We have three cottages both original stone barns that have been sympathetically converted to holiday accommodation in 2009/2010 and have been designed with disabled access in mind. They form part of a listed farm courtyard and their individual, enclosed gardens with patio and garden furniture, back onto a newly planted orchard. We have installed underfloor heating and real wood log burners in the living areas, to ensure your comfort whatever the weather. Children and pets are welcome but please be aware that this is a working farm. All have a downstairs wet room/toilet and a family bathroom upstairs.

About the Owner

My family have lived and worked on Wadhayes Farm for over 100 years. In 2009 we chose to convert three of our farm buildings into holiday cottages, which my husband and I manage on behalf of the whole family. Three generations of my family continue to live here and we hope to preserve it for future generations of our family. Having grown up on the farm and then in my 20's moved around considerably, it is a delight to be back on the farm sharing it with my children.

Location

From the Owner

The farm is at the end of a no through, private lane which provides a unique sense of 'being away from it all'. Once you reach the farm you are surrounded by green fields on all sides. With the Blackdown hills behind and expansive views over the valley in front, some of the best views in the area are just outside the door. The peace and quiet is breath taking, no traffic, no major roads, not even a pylon in sight yet at the end of the lane (1/2 miles) is an A road providing direct access to the ancient market town of Honiton and the A30 in one direction (3 miles) or Cullompton and the motorway in the other (10 minutes). Everyone comments on what a deceptively central location this is for enjoying all parts of the world renown Jurrassic Coastline, Historic Exeter, Dartmoor or Exmoor.

Facilities

From the Owner

This area has a natural beauty, rolling green hills, woods and streams tinkling in the bottom of valleys. In summer months swallows dart around the farmyard, buzzards soar overhead, owls 'twit ta woo' at dusk and deer visit from the woods, surrounding the property, to graze our fields. We have a small pedigree herd of Ruby Red Devon cattle grazing in fields next to suffolk sheep and their lambs. Chickens provide eggs that can be bought direct and a private track winds up through the fields and the beech woods beyond linking up with public footpaths at the top of the hill. In the garaging area there is a selection of children's outdoor toys (a tricycle, bat and balls) and a small pool/snooker table to be enjoyed by all the cottages. This is truly a place to slow down and relax.
