About the location

Sheldon

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.

The location of the cabin was fantastic, especially with our two very large dogs! The forest behind the cabin made great walks for us and the dogs, very peaceful and quiet. If it's relaxation, peace and quiet you are seeking, then this is the place for you.

Ms Dembski, LUTON, March 2014

The setting of the cabin was more than expected. Even though the owner was close by we were left to our selves which is what we wanted.

Mrs Taylor, Poole, February 2014

This property ticked every box for me, it is a simple place for those who enjoy a simple quiet life. The location was exactly what I wanted and wished for; secluded, close to nature, quiet, a place to contemplate the important things in life and enjoy it.

Ms Dorje, Northampton, October 2013

I can now see why its always booked up in advance!The owner was very pleasant and helpful. The log fire was also a lovely feature in the living room.
