  • "We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Southcott Farm Cottage!"

    We were very welcomed by Amber and Nellie when we first arrived. Amber showed us around and left us to it. All the little touches made our stay special; home made scones, doggy treats, blankets for the sofas(our dogs like to snuggle by us while watching TV and Amber and Kevin understood that!) Amber and Kevin were always happy to help; we needed a spare crate, a stair gate and a mop and bucket to clean the mucky paw prints(just a text to Amber and it was brought over to us). We all enjoyed the walks on the land, especially the pond. Nathan and Katie took the rowing boat out and the dogs loved to swim around trying to catch them! The enclosed field was a win too, it was so lovely to get up in the morning, take a couple of steps and let the dogs run around first thing. This cottage has literally everything you could ask for..and more! We will be booking and visiting again in the very near future. Thanks again to Amber, Kevin and Nellie! - Steff, Carl, Nathan, Katie and the puppies; Xena, Luna and Athena(hopefully we will be joined by Cooper next time too)

    Delighted to have you stay with us, thank you for choosing Southcott Farm Cottage and we would love to welcome you back and hopefully Cooper as well. Property Owner

    Sadly our arrival time was delayed by several hours due to car trouble. Amber & Kevin had no problem with this & even left us a welcome de stress treat in the fridge! Along with a lovely welcome basket of goodies. The gluten free scones were a lovely touch, as well as making sure I had some dairy free milk was very kind of you too.

We have friends/family that live in, Cullompton & so it was lovely that they were able to join us for an evening of BBQ, games & hot tub.

    A lovely place for a 'get away from it all' escape. The cottage is beautifully decorated but feels very homey and cosy. Everything you need for self catering is provided, with a very well equipped kitchen. The beds are very comfortable and have nice quality bed linen and good pillows. It was also extremely dog friendly with throws provided for sofas and no restrictions. The owners are friendly and helpful without being intrusive and responded immediately to any problems. Our dogs were allowed to use the adjoining field which was appreciated for early morning and late evening runs. There is miles of woodland surrounding the property. There is a forest walk very close by and more forest walks within one or two miles drive which are all suitable for long off lead walks for lively dogs. The hot tub is the icing on the cake, lovely for a soak looking up at the stars after a days walking.

The property

Located in the small hamlet of Sheldon near Honiton, Southcott Farm Cottage is a lovely, stone built, pet-friendly cottage in Devon.

Set in the heart of the Blackdown Hills Area of Outstanding Beauty and with wonderful woodland walks and mountain biking routes from the door, it's a perfect rural retreat for friends, couples or a family of four.

Arrive to your own dedicated parking spaces, before making your way through the neat terraced garden to the picturesque cottage.

You're immediately welcomed by a newly fitted, traditional shaker style kitchen where you can prepare delicious meals for your group on the feature Rangemaster oven.

The charming sitting room is the perfect spot to unwind after the day's adventures, complete with a wood burning stove for added comfort whilst you relax on the sofa with a good book or your favourite show on the TV.

When it's time to rest, climb the stairs to discover two well-appointed bedrooms: a king-size room and a twin (can be super king-size on request), both served by the sparkling family bathroom where a decadent roll top bath tub is ideal to soak your cares away.

During the summer months, make dinner an alfresco affair and enjoy some quality family time in the fabulous garden; here you'll find a chimnea and bubbling hot tub - it's a brilliantly social outside space to be enjoyed year round.

Your canine companions are very welcome too; with access to a pretty picnic lake there's plenty of space to stretch their legs and dog walking is available on request with the friendly homeowner.

Your pooches will also receive their very own welcome pack!

Also available by prior arrangement - DIY stabling and livery for horses.

Start your day with a stroll around the lake or try your hand at a spot of trout fishing whilst admiring your picture-postcard setting before heading to a nearby pub for a well-earned lunch.

Take a short journey to Honiton, a large market town with a variety of eateries, as well as the All Hallows Museum displaying handmade lace for which the town is famous.

About the location


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.
