The property

This cosy, detached dormer bungalow is on the edge of the rural village of Payhembury near Honiton, and is a short stroll from the village playground, pub and shop making it an ideal holiday base for families.

The cottage is spacious and comfortably furnished and has a large garden overlooking green fields and the Blackdown hills beyond.

The sitting room is a fabulous room for the family to gather around the open fire, or even the piano for a sing-song.

The bright and very modern kitchen has granite worktops and a range cooker, making it a joy to prepare food for the family and serve up in the adjoining dining room overlooking the garden.

There is a door leading onto the lawn and BBQ area, so why not take your meal outside?

All three bedrooms are on the ground floor and share a bathroom making them easily accessible.

There is a second, very spacious, sitting room in the eaves where you can relax and get some peace and quiet.

You can curl up in front of the TV and there is even a sofa bed for extra flexibility with the sleeping arrangements.

Apart from having the large enclosed garden, the village playground is opposite the cottage and is away from main roads; adults can play tennis and children can play on the swings!

Afterwards, why not stroll to the village pub or take a walk to nearby Hembury Fort?

Honiton town centre is only a short drive from the cottage and has plenty to offer visitors; a fascinating history, a lively atmosphere and a bustling and individual high street, which is the main centre in the West Country for antiques and antiquarian books.

Sidmouth beach is also close by and offers traditional seaside fun for all the family.

This is a lovely holiday home with plenty of activities to keep the whole group entertained.

About the location

PAYHEMBURY

Ottery St Mary 5.2 miles; Honiton 6.2 miles; Exeter 20.6 miles.

Payhembury is a rural village in East Devon with a pub, shop, tennis courts, playground and even a phone box library. Nearby is Hembury Fort, an important historical site, being one of the most impressive Iron Age hill forts. Slightly further afield is the delightful market town of Honiton. It lies in the valley of the River Otter and is surrounded by rolling Devon hills, green wooded valleys and plenty of scattered farming villages. Honiton has an attractive High Street stretching almost 2 miles, and is lined with individually owned shops, pubs and restaurants. The village has been famous for lacemaking since the reign of Elizabeth I and still has a few lacemakers in work today - visitors can see some fine examples of antique lace in the town’s Allhallows Museum. Only a short drive from the dramatic 20 mile stretch of Jurassic Coast, England’s first natural World Heritage Site, Honiton is in a fantastic location. Resorts such as Seaton, Budleigh Salterton and Sidmouth are found along this stretch of coastline, and all have much to occupy the visitor. The nearest city is the cathedral city of Exeter with plenty of large shops, a wealth of museums, a theatre and fabulous restaurants.
