    “We loved the location however there were a few things that disappointed us about the cottage : 1/ The insistence by the owner of using only eco friendly cleaning products was a challenge as very little was supplied .”


    East Devon s rigorous recycling scheme meant we needed lots of different bags - very few were supplied . 2/ In a global pandemic we were disturbed at throws on the sofas - were these cleaned weekly ? 3/ I found a used mans handkerchief in a drawer which again in the current climate was not pleasant. 4 / Too many notes from the owner about what we could and could not do was disconcerting and we couldn’t control the thermostat. 5/ The week before we had been to a property run by Holiday Property Bond and the difference between the two properties in terms of cleanliness was marked . 6/ No hairdryer which is unusual

    Thank you for the feedback which we take on board and we are pleased to hear you enjoyed visiting the area. Courshay Springs changeovers are managed by an excellent and very professional cleaner with long experience. The thermostat is set to prevent it being switched up exceptionally high, which affects the beams and woodwork of the house, especially in the old part. Hairdryers aren't included as an compulsory item in our holiday properties but guests can enquire about the availability such items before their holiday, if required. - Sykes owner relations

The property

Hidden in the East Devon countryside, just outside the village of Hawkchurch, you will find the attractive country cottage of Courshays Springs.

Light and welcoming with shabby chic furnishings with a subtle countryside feel, this charming holiday home makes the perfect base for families or groups of five looking for a relaxing rural retreat to Devon.

Step into the warm embrace of the quirky sitting room with white washed walls, timber floors and comfy sofas adorned with brightly coloured throws and cushions.

A rustic oak table allows for a card game or two in the evenings whilst you enjoy the warmth and flickering flames of the wood burning stove in the background.

A galley style kitchen is split into two levels with a step in between and comes equipped with dishwasher plus all the usual appliances.

A further dining room comes with piano and a fine selection of games for rainy days or an old fashioned singsong after dinner!

There is a useful cloak room on the ground floor and access through the rear door to the front or patio doors from the dining room to the garden beyond.

Upstairs, three bedrooms are ideal for a family group or friends.

There is a double room and cot, a twin room and a small double suitable for use for one person only.

There is a separate bathroom via 2 steps down from the landing.

The colourful garden is well planted and left wild in places to attract bees and birds - its a true delight in summer months.

Enclosed by small garden gates there is room to play and also to sit and unwind on garden furniture and soak up the sunshine and sounds of the countryside.

Across from the cottage is a meadow that attracts wildlife all year round - guests often see the deer and baby deer across the road, plus hares, badgers and a variety of birds like buzzards, owls, warblers, bullfinches and goldcrest There are plenty of countryside walks from your doorstep.

The village of Hawkchurch is a mile away and the market town of Axminster has all the shops you need to pick up some fresh ingredients for an evening of home cooking.

Spend the day at the Axe Valley Wildlife Park to meet the friendly and exotic residents, or explore the magnificent grounds of the national trust owned Shute Barton before heading to Burrow Farm Gardens for a light bite to eat.

Make the most of your time in the East Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty by embarking on a scenic walk in the countryside or heading to the Jurassic Coast for a day at Lyme Regis Beach.
