    “Cottage was lovely and comfortable.”

    The welcome pack of a basket of eggs there own apple juice and a jug of milk for a cup of tea /coffee was very welcome . The kitchen area was well equipped. Even if you didn't wait to go out you could sit on the sofa and look out the French window over the rolling countryside.

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.
