â¦ 4 miles from Colyton, deep in thick, lush hedgerow lanes in the Coly
Valley, is the sleepy hamlet of Northleigh, 5 to 7 miles from the
lovely coastal villages of Beer, Sidmouth and Branscombe. On the edge
of Northleigh, three cottages converted from traditional Devon barns on
a small mixed farm raising beef, free range poultry and a few piglets.
An acre of lawn (barbecue) for energetic ball games or just sitting
under a shading cherry tree and enjoying gorgeous rural views. Shared
laundry room (washing machine, tumble drier, freezer) and games barn
(table tennis, Â¼-sized snooker table, darts, table football) which can
be adapted into a big dining room for special occasions, by
arrangement. When booked together, the cottages accommodate 14 guests.
Ducks on the pond (fenced), cobblestones in the courtyard, a soppy dog
and dignified cat make this an utterly charming place to stay, unwind
and enjoy a friendly, rural idyll.
The Shippen: door from courtyard into open-plan living/dining/kitchen
(dishwasher, microwave, fridge, electric cooker) with woodburner,
TV/DVD and glazed door to patio (table/chairs) with lovely far-reaching
rural views. Two bedrooms â a double, and a twin; big bathroom (suite,
shower over bath). At the back, the shared lawn.Get the full listing »
