    “The property and owner made you feel really welcome.”

    It is such a beautiful peaceful location. The cottage had everything thing you could wish for. It was very dog friendly and there was lots of outside space for the dogs to roam around. The bed was super comfy and we slept like a log. The hot tub was nice to soak in after a days walking.

About the location


Honiton 7 miles; Exeter 20 miles.

On the edge of the Blackdown Hills, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with deeply wooded valleys, lush green fields and winding country lanes, Sheldon is the typically peaceful and picturesque country hamlet. A collection of natural stone cottages, the village attracts those who love peace and quiet. Foxes, badgers, deer and a varied birdlife will share your stay here, and yet the Cathedral city of Exeter, with its shops, restaurants and good pubs is just a short drive away. Close at hand, too, is the Heritage Coast of East Devon and Dorset, with the beautiful fishing village of Lyme Regis making a splendid day out. Ottery St Mary, the coastal resort of Sidmouth and the lace-making town of Honiton are all within easy reach. The rocky tors and wild open spaces of Dartmoor, a must for anyone visiting Devon, are only 30 miles away.
