    “The woodshed is an amazing place, so peaceful and tranquil with heavenly views across the rolling Devonshire hills and patchwork fields .”


    The property is small but incredibly well equipped, very comfortable beds, cosy lounge and all beautifully handcrafted. The only problem we had seems to be a little misunderstanding with the garden which I was told was dog friendly and fully enclosed, not quite the case if you have a dog with a tendency to squeeze through hedges after rabbits or likes to chase chickens!! A fabulous place for a couple, not much in the village but Exeter only a few miles away. Second bedroom very small but probably well suited to younger children. Local pub was closed when we visited but looked beautiful, and Bob and Issy have put together a fantastic and comprehensive guide to Devon, pubs, beaches, attractions for walkers, children etc. Absolutely idyllic.

The property

Tucked on the edge of Upton Pyne, at the end of a no-through lane, an oak-framed cottage created from the end of the owners’ carefully renovated former barn.

It has superb rural views over rolling farmland of the Exe valley to the Killerton estate.

Your own gravelled path leads to a sitting-out area (table/chairs), with shared use of the owners’ garden (free-range chickens, cats) beyond.

Inside, beautifully crafted with lots of exposed wood, elm floors and quirky detail.

Two steps up to front door into kitchen/dining room (dishwasher, microwave, fridge, gas hob/electric oven) with stairs up to light, bright living room under the eaves with woodburner, smart TV/DVD/Blu-ray, Bluetooth speaker and French windows to 2 steps down to wide balcony (table/chairs) with those views.

Two steps down from living room to two neat bedrooms - a double (5' bed), and a twin (2'6" beds, limited clothes-hanging space); smart shower-room suite.

Use of washing machine and tumble drier in owners' garage.

Good pub within a mile via footpath.

Sleeps maximum of 4, including babies.

A super spot for those seeking rural tranquillity, with the bright lights and buzz of Exeter easily accessible. Upton Pyne: small village (church) 4 miles from Exeter, close to the River Exe (river walks) and in countryside criss-crossed by footpaths.

Brampford Speke (excellent pub), 2 miles.

Killerton (Nat.

Trust house/garden), 8 miles; Dartmoor, 11 miles; sea/beaches at Exmouth or Dawlish, 15 and 17 miles respectively; Exmoor, 25.

About the location


Exeter is a lively city in south Devon with a magnificent cathedral, historic quayside area with artisan shops and cafes, guided tours of the maze of underground passages and a wealth of bars, shops and restaurants. There is a good choice of excellent museums tracing the city’s lengthy history including an interesting medieval building The Tucker’s Hall, built for the Company of Weavers, Tuckers and Shearman which houses exceptional carved panelling, rare silver and a 4 feet long pair of fulling shears. Nearby Parliament Street claims to be the world’s narrowest street – less than 25 inches at its narrowest. The gatehouse and tower of Rougemont castle still stand in the city, surrounded by Rougemont gardens with a backdrop of Roman wall ruins - a tranquil haven. Exeter’s one time importance as a port is reflected in the Custom House, now the centrepiece of the Quayside, a fascinating complex of antique shops and cafes. Within a 15 minute drive of the city, there are some fabulous beaches at Sidmouth and Exmouth, and the start of the 95 mile stretch of Jurassic Coast, all of which provide ample opportunities for relaxation, sport and exploration. Exeter is an ideal south Devon base from which to explore pretty countryside and Heritage Coast.
