  • "Brilliant week at the cottage."

    Our girls (7 and under) were delighted with the house and the enclosed, well maintained garden. The small touches - like games, books etc, made a big difference. Well kitted out kitchen. Lovely welcome hamper. So many things to do within 30 mins, we barely scratched the surface. Village is impossibly picturesque - with thatch and high hedgerows. Excellent hospitality - we had a fabulous week. Would highly recommend.

    Ah, so glad you all had a brilliant week. Thank you for the lovely feedback too Property Owner

  • "A lovely, comfortable cottage which has everything you need."

    The hot tub was amazing and a generous size. Amy, John and Poppy were very welcoming and was reassuring to know they were still local if we needed them. A very generous hamper was waiting for us and was much appreciated. The stairs may be an issue for anyone with mobility issues. Thouroughly recommended.

    So well equipped and beautiful, clean house with luxury items and every need catered for, including thoughts for 2 small children. The garden was beautiful and a lovely area to relax in at the end of busy days at the beach! The hot tub was a huge win with the entire family. Our thanks to Amy, John and Poppy for a lovely stay. We will be back!

The property

Settled in the rural village of Payhembury, in the desirable county of Devon, rests this pleasant three-bedroom holiday cottage, Forever Home.

Renovated to a high standard and enjoying a peaceful countryside setting, Forever Home makes an idyllic base for a staycation for five in Devon.

Park up in one of the off-road spaces provided and make your way inside this lovely abode, kicking off your shoes and removing any coats as you enter into the hallway and make yourself at home.

Refuel following an exciting day of excursions and rustle up a hearty meal in the well-equipped kitchen whilst your holiday attire freshens up in the handy washing machine.

Uncork a bottle of wine and gather together at the dining table to tuck-in to a hearty meal before snuggling up with your loved ones amongst the warmth of the rustic woodburning stove to enjoy a family favourite on the television.

In the warmer months, make the most of your peaceful countryside setting and venture out to the rear garden to soak in the sunshine with your favourite tipple in hand as well as enjoying the jacuzzi hot tub.

Three bedrooms can be found resting on the first floor, with a sumptuous king-size, a double and a single to choose from, each serviced by the contemporary shower room, where you can prepare for bed with a refreshing rinse ahead of a new day.

The Six Bells Inn makes the perfect spot for a meal away from your holiday home with it offering classic pub food and local ales, whilst the local convenience store stocks all of the essential ingredients for those who would prefer to whip up delicious dishes.

Nearby Ottery Saint Mary boasts a wider variety of amenities, with a bustling high street lined with pubs, restaurants and cafes promising to cater to all tastes and budgets.

Whilst you're in the area, be sure to visit the historical city of Exeter, where you can marvel at the remarkable Gothic architecture of Exeter Cathedral or take a step back in time with a tour of the Royal Albert Memorial Museum and Art Gallery.

For a change of scenery, immerse yourself in the great outdoors of the Blackdown Hills, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, where a countless network of trails lead through woodland, farmland and vast open moorland.

The south coast is set within easy reach, where lazy afternoons can be spent lounging on the sands of Sidmouth or Budleigh Salterton, whilst there's plenty to see and do in the bustling town of Exmouth.

With miles of rolling countryside and craggy coastline accessible from your doorstep, there's no better place to explore Devon than Forever Home.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £350.

About the location


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.
