The property

… about a mile from Southleigh, a large house beautifully converted from a barn (G191), a large farmhouse (G190) and two detached cottages (G192, G193), all high on a hillside above a picturesque valley, with almost 180 degree views of amazing rolling countryside. They are surrounded by around 200 acres of fields and bluebell woods which you are welcome to wander and enjoy deer and badger watching, the stream, lake (fishing), duck pond (carp fishing) and the gorgeous views. An exciting range of activities is available (extra), including clay pigeon shootingamphibious vehicles and archery - tailor-made packages can be arranged. Peacocks strut the grounds, together with roaming chickens and ducks (eggs to collect), and the friendly owners are happy to show you the unusual pets (alpacas, ostrich, goats). Caterers can be recommended. 

... The Shippen is a detached, split-level cottage built into the hillside, also looking over the same 200 acre farmstead where you are welcome to wander and enjoy the activities. Surrounded by its own garden on various levels with steps between, paved at the front (low wall) and side with picnic benches (superb long views, gas barbecue) and arch to gently sloping enclosed lawned area behind.

Neutral colours and modern fabrics/furnishings give an up-to-date feel to the original features, low beamed ceilings (lowest 5'5" above fireplace), flagstone floor and knobbly walls. Step up from porch to cosy living/dining/smart kitchen (slimline dishwasher, washer-drier, microwave, fridge-freezer, electric cooker) with lovely old flagstone floor (rugs), leather sofas, TV/DVD/Blu-ray, iPod dock and electric flame-effect fire. Five oak steps (stairgate, low beam) up to rear hall with doors to terrace; small bathroom (suite, 4'6" bath with shower over); 3 more shallow steps up and down to a roomy, high-ceilinged double bedroom (5' sleigh bed, TV) with smart en suite shower-room (suite), and a neat twin (zip-linkable to 6' double, TV). Cosy, quirky and comfortable with lots to do on site and a good base from which to explore east Devon’s villages and coast.

Lovely little cottage, well equipped. Luckily we were under the height of the ceiling beams! Very comfortable, lots of parking available. Only managed to walk round a bit of the estate, but lots to see. Had many visits from the Percy's.... the peacocks, who liked watching tv through the kitchen window!
