  • "Had a relaxing week in this extremely comfortable and spotlessly clean property."

    Cottage was warm and cosy and very well equipped with everything you could need. It’s a lovely quiet spot with good access in a lovely location. Owners were very friendly and welcoming and left us a lovely home made cake and some beautiful flowers from their garden. All in all one of the best cottages we’ve stayed in and we are planning to book again for next year.

  • "The Old Log Shed is a superb little house."

    It has everything you could possibly want in a holiday let, in fact I could quite easily live here! Well equipped, very clean and very comfortable, a large patio and lovely garden. Surrounded by beautiful views of the countryside and oh so peaceful. If there is a negative point to make it would be that if you’re a keen walker there are no walks to go on from the property, you need a car to get anywhere!

The property

Deep in leafy lanes 3½ miles from Honiton, tucked away at the end of a private tree-lined drive is The Old Log Shed.

This striking cottage has been smartly converted from stables on this former farmstead.

Two pairs of bi-fold doors bring the outside in and fill the cottage with light.

The living space comprises a snug living room with a wood burning stove and a neat kitchen with granite worktops and dining area.

On the first floor are two pretty bedrooms with lovely garden views – a double, and a twin.

Outside you have your own enclosed garden with a large level lawn, croquet and a swing, and a sun trap terrace with table, chairs and a barbecue.

You are also welcome to use the owners’ all-weather tennis court.

Why not head into Honiton and browse the antique shops or use the leisure centre and other town amenities.

For outdoor activity, walk the Blackdown Hills and the River Otter valley, fish in the river or head to the seaside at Sidmouth.

Exeter has cathedral city facilities aplenty.

Smart, stylish and peaceful, this is a great base for exploring east Devon.

About the location


Ottery St Mary 6 miles; Lyme Regis 14.5 miles; Exeter 22 miles.

Honiton is a delightful market town in East Devon, with plenty to offer visitors. 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 lined with individually owned shops, pubs and restaurants. Honiton 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. Honiton boasts the only public art gallery in East Devon; the Thelma Hulbert Gallery occupies an attractive Grade I listed Victorian house, and has links with the Hayward Gallery, London. Honiton is only a short drive from the dramatic 20 mile stretch of Jurassic Coast, England’s first natural World Heritage Site. Resorts such as Seaton, Budleigh Salterton and Sidmouth are found along this stretch of coastline, and all have much to occupy the visitor. Near to Honiton is the cathedral city of Exeter with plenty of large shops, a wealth of museums, a theatre and fabulous restaurants.
