Discover the perfect escape within this idyllic retreat nestled in the rolling countryside of the Blackdown Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. This property has high eco credentials having been converted in 2007 with a state-of-the-art solar and wood-powered heating system, with logs grown sustainably on site. Broadhembury, voted the most beautiful village in Devon, is only 5 miles away and boasts an amazing pub and pretty circular walks. Just 8 miles away is the market town of Honiton, boasting an array of shops, cafes, pubs and restaurants. Venture slightly further south and explore the breathtaking Jurassic Coast, including the historic seaside town of Sidmouth (18 miles) offering sandy beaches, enchanting gardens and a rugged coastline for fossil hunting. Beer, Seaton and Lyme Regis can all be easily accessed within 18 miles and offer unique seaside charms. Another action-packed family day out can be found at Crealy Theme Park (22 miles), the biggest family theme park in Devon with over 60 rides and family attractions.
