Honiton 7 miles; Exeter 20 miles.
On the edge of the Blackdown Hills, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with deeply wooded valleys, lush green fields and winding country lanes, Sheldon is the typically peaceful and picturesque country hamlet. A collection of natural stone cottages, the village attracts those who love peace and quiet. Foxes, badgers, deer and a varied birdlife will share your stay here, and yet the Cathedral city of Exeter, with its shops, restaurants and good pubs is just a short drive away. Close at hand, too, is the Heritage Coast of East Devon and Dorset, with the beautiful fishing village of Lyme Regis making a splendid day out. Ottery St Mary, the coastal resort of Sidmouth and the lace-making town of Honiton are all within easy reach. The rocky tors and wild open spaces of Dartmoor, a must for anyone visiting Devon, are only 30 miles away.

Beautiful, secluded and quiet surroundings. We walked everyday with the dog and the children loved the woods. We will definitely be returning!

It was really peaceful, a nice get away from everything - the dog loved it! There were scones in the fridge when we arrived :) I will definitely visit again :) we had the best time. The photos on the website don't show the best features.

The woods,the peace, the quiet and the dogs had so much freedom.
Mr Sperling, New Milton, November 2011
The isolation! We hardly saw any one all week. It was so quiet I could've spent more time there; just me and my wife and the dogs. All together it was my idea of heaven. A great holiday. The cottage was set up for people with dogs. All together a wonderful time was had by all.
Mr Nelton, Gloucester, October 2011
