  • “I have just returned with my family after a weeks stay.”

    We stayed in The Linney. It was very peaceful. The location I would describe as remote although only 5 miles from the nearest town. You are very much in the Devonshire farm country with tiny lanes and no street lighting. I loved that part of my stay. The cottage was great with all the amenities you would need for a self catering stay. The grounds on the farm are very picturesque. Simon and Sue were very accommodating and saw to any issues we had. It was lovely to turn up to fresh eggs and milk ...

    We stayed in The Linney. It was very peaceful. The location I would describe as remote although only 5 miles from the nearest town. You are very much in the Devonshire farm country with tiny lanes and no street lighting. I loved that part of my stay. The cottage was great with all the amenities you would need for a self catering stay. The grounds on the farm are very picturesque. Simon and Sue were very accommodating and saw to any issues we had. It was lovely to turn up to fresh eggs and milk and home pressed apple juice. The site suggests that there is WiFi at the location. There is indeed a WiFi but virtually no connection to it. I could not connect all week in fact. I wasn't especially bothered as I went away to forget about that, but just know that if you are going, especially with kids that use WiFi then you may be disappointed. I would pre download stuff to their ipads before you go. Also I'm on O2 and there was virtually no phone signal there either until you got to the nearby town, but that's rural Devon for you. Not a negative, just something to be aware of. Finally, the current photos do not do the cottages justice. They are better than the photos suggest. They are lovely and I would happily go back as a base for South Devon and Dorset, its fab.

The property

4 miles from Colyton, deep in thick, lush hedgerow lanes in the Coly Valley, is the sleepy hamlet of Northleigh, 5 to 7 miles from the lovely coastal villages of Beer, Sidmouth and Branscombe.

On the edge of Northleigh, three cottages converted from traditional Devon barns on a small mixed farm raising beef, free range poultry and a few piglets.

An acre of lawn (barbecue) for energetic ball games or just sitting under a shading cherry tree and enjoying gorgeous rural views.

Shared laundry room (washing machine, tumble drier, freezer) and games barn (table tennis, ¼-sized snooker table, darts, table football) which can be adapted into a big dining room for special occasions, by arrangement.

When booked together, the cottages accommodate 14 guests.

Ducks on the pond (fenced), cobblestones in the courtyard, a soppy dog and dignified cat make this an utterly charming place to stay, unwind and enjoy a friendly, rural idyll.

The Linney: door from courtyard to open-plan living/dining/kitchen (dishwasher, microwave, fridge, electric cooker) with TV/DVD and glazed doors to patio (table/chairs) and the shared lawn.

Stairs up to two bedrooms - a double, and a twin (limited clothes-hanging space); bathroom (suite, shower over bath). Colyton: ancient little town on the River Coly with buildings dating from the Domesday Book, Norman church and unique, independently owned shops, pubs and restaurants.

Tramway to the coast at Seaton, 3 miles.

Pecorama railway attraction/gardens, 5 miles.

Honiton, 7 miles; Lyme Regis, 9.

On the East Devon Way footpath between Lyme Regis and Exmouth.
