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.

1 Shippen Cottages (see arrow 1): porch for coats/boots; stable doors into roomy and light open-plan living/dining/fitted kitchen (slimline dishwasher, microwave, fridge, electric cooker) with leather sofa and chair, TV/DVD and French windows to deck (table/chairs). Double bedroom (5’ brass bed) with tiled en suite shower-room (suite).

This is a beautifully appointed holiday let in an idyliic position. I was worried that the railway line just a short distance away would detract from the peace and quiet but the trains are short and gone by in seconds. There is a lovely view from the decking area and it's a sun trap.. Mark and Anne, the owners, are truly gracious hosts - friendly and welcoming but leave you to get on with your holiday. I had a long stay - 5 weeks - as I am in the midst of house purchase and can truly say that I was extremely sorry to leave. The bird life is incredible and the meadows a delight. I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys being away from the hurly burly of everyday life.
