Set in the Blackdown Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, surrounded by fields & overlooking the stunning Otter Valley, Defoe’s View is an eco friendly property, beautifully built and offering a stylish home from which you can plan your holiday adventures and make happy family memories,
whilst relaxing in luxurious surroundings.
Within easy walking distance of the market town of Honiton means that you can enjoy a rural location, yet have the convenience of not needing to use transport to visit the local pubs and
restaurants, where you can sample the marvelous mouth watering locally produced food, wine and beer.
Boasting eco credentials – powered with renewable electricity, heating and hot water provided by a ground source heat pump, the property is leading the way in being carbon neutral and is comfortable and cosy throughout the year.
Step inside the welcoming ambiance of the light and airy hallway, take off your shoes and coats before heading down the stairs to the open plan living space on the lower ground floor.
The chic navy kitchen area provides an excellent opportunity for the group chef to excel in their culinary skills whilst everyone discusses the days discoveries and forward plan the next days adventure.
After a sumptuous meal together around the dining table, the conversations excitably continue in
the welcoming lounge area over further glasses of wine.
The relax mode gradually kicks in with either watching a favourite movie, or venturing outside onto the enclosed patio area to sit and watch the sun go down over the hills.
Your attention will be drawn to the swallows dipping and the fish cruising in the pond as the water gently trickles in from the stream.
Drink in the magnificent view made famous by Daniel Defoe (of Robinson Crusoe fame) 1734 – literally “the view of the country is the most beautiful landscape in the world, a meer picture".
Guests can choose to stay in a super-king-size bedroom situated off of the dining area, or in the super-king-size bedroom off the entrance hallway, both served by a sleek wet room situated off the opposite side of the hallway.
Venturing upstairs there are a further two super-king-size bedrooms, both with en-suites, and one boasting a corner balcony with seating area from which there are fabulous view over the valley.
The second super-king-size bedroom has a balcony with seating area overlooking the magnificent Otter Valley and looks down on a fascinating view of the fish cruising around the pond.
Maybe then relax and unwind in a full size bath in the luxurious en-suite bathroom, whilst fresh towels keep hot and toasty on the heated towel rails.
A stroll over the lawned area to the rear of the property treats you with wonderous uninterrupted views.
The exploration can then continue by dropping down into the adjoining Devon meadow where the mowed pathway around the outskirts enables you to venture to the field pond to experience the wonder of dragonflies and profusion of wildlife drawn to its offerings.
Sit awhile, relax, ponder and drink in the atmosphere.
