  • “Very friendly and helpful owners.”

    Beautiful surroundings and well-kept grounds. I would not hesitate to return to this group of cottages.

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 Shippen: door from courtyard into open-plan living/dining/kitchen (dishwasher, microwave, fridge, electric cooker) with woodburner, TV/DVD and glazed door to patio (table/chairs) with lovely far-reaching rural views.

Two bedrooms - a double, and a twin; big bathroom (suite, shower over bath).

At the back, the shared lawn. 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.
