    “The best cottage we have ever stayed in for cleanliness and home comforts.”

    They had a little of everything in the kitchen and bathrooms to make life easier. Plenty of information was provided on places to visit, the surrounding area, walking and how everything worked. They had put a lot of thought into making guests welcome but we're not intrusive.

The property

A mile from Wilmington, hidden in flower-filled lanes, two semi-detached single-storey cottages converted from barns across the lane from the friendly owners’ farmhouse.

You are welcome to walk the 10 acres of surrounding heath and woodland and enjoy the wildlife (excellent birdwatching).

Walks are cut through organic wildflower meadows (picnic tables) and an ancient cider orchard, and a footpath meanders beside a river to Cotleigh.

The cottages are smart and modern with high ceilings and Velux windows, some original beams and oak floors.

Each has a suntrap deck behind for enjoying peaceful valley views and soothing birdsong.

Below (8 steps down), a shared lawn (barbecues).

At the front, shared gravelled parking area, laundry (washing machine, tumble drier) and barn, useful for your bicycles/beach gear etc.

Smart, comfortable cottages in a peaceful, picturesque location, much enjoyed by birdwatchers. 2 Shippen Cottages (see arrow 2): porch for coats/boots; stable doors into spacious, light open-plan living/dining/kitchen (dishwasher, microwave, fridge, electric cooker) with leather sofas, TV/DVD and French windows to deck (table/chairs).

Two bedrooms, both smart with pretty valley views - a double (5' bed) with en suite roll-in shower-room (wet-room suite), and a twin with en suite shower-room. Wilmington: small village (pub, 14th cent.

church) between Axminster (small town, 6 miles) and Honiton (4 miles) on the A35.

Surrounded by pretty hamlets (Widworthy, 1½ miles; Cotleigh, 2) in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty on the edge of the Blackdown Hills.

Nearest coast, Beer or Seaton, 9 miles, Lyme Regis, 11.
