� on the edge of Woodbridge hamlet, � mile from Farway, is Hornshayne Farmhouse, a large, beautiful and imposing thatched farmhouse adjoining the owners� cottage in the midst of this busy, working, 335 acre dairy/arable farm (you're welcome to help feed calves). There�s been a house here since Saxon times; �gentrified� in the 1700s, this farmhouse retains many original and fascinating features (still a salting cupboard and ceiling chamber in the kitchen). Outside, plenty of open space (river - trout fishing, ponds, walks with outstanding views, and miles of unspoilt countryside) surrounding the very pretty garden (picnic table, gas barbecue, giant draughts, unfenced shallow stream; great play castle, Wendy house and sandpit, shared with owners) and games barn (quarter-sized billiard table, table tennis, karaoke machine, TV, fridge, loo). Within walking distance of the East Devon Way.

Inside, living room (�living flame� fire, TV/DVD/video) and enormous, hub-of-the-house kitchen/dining room (huge fireplace, oil-fired Rayburn, electric cooker, dishwasher, microwave, American-style fridge-freezer), both with original slate flag floor; tiny games room (TV/DVD, PlayStation); children�s playroom (toys); shower-room (suite); utility room (washing machine, tumble drier, sink).

Upstairs, five bedrooms (all with TV, two with DVD) on three levels:

Level 1: double with en suite bathroom (suite, shower over bath).

Level 2: family bedroom (6� zip-linked double or twin and single bed) with en suite shower-room (suite, two washbasins); two double (one with 6� zip-linked double or twin); and bathroom (suite with corner bath and separate shower).

Level 3 (attic): low lintel to very large master double (6� bed) with en suite bathroom (suite with roll-top bath plus hand-shower). Spring water. Professional catering and ready meals available. Damages Deposit �300. A comfortable, welcoming house with fascinating farm experiences for all generations.

The Devon region

East Devon: that is Devon east of the river Exe and Exeter - Devon�s capital with superb cathedral and much else attractive. Here is the most smiling of lush farmland and most dramatically hilly, the easiest to see from a car because the lanes are less narrow, the hedges less high. Domed hills rise abruptly and steeply, baize-green fields to crowns of woods or sentinel beech trees, half-way up farmsteads like a children�s-book idyll. Woodbury Common is a small high moor with heather and Scots pine trees and fine newish golf course.

Exmouth is a resort with lots of sandy beach and boats. The Exe estuary is full of yachts and has one of Devon�s prettiest villages, Lympstone, beside it. A shore of mainly pebbles keeps the area comparatively quiet, though the coast is attractive with white and red cliffs, pleasant, civilised towns like Sidmouth and Budleigh Salterton and villages like Beer and Branscombe. Its inland villages tend to be pretty: Broadhembury is special - and the view from Hembury Hill (fort) is sensational. Hardly anyone seems to visit the lovely Blackdown Hills - big beech woods, smart fields with thoroughbred horses - on its northern border. You can have flying lessons at Dunkeswell aerodrome and there is an excellent (flat) cycle track, punctuated by pubs, from Exeter beside the Exe estuary to the sea. The whole east Devon coast is called a �World Heritage Coastline�.

Colyton

Farway: valley farming village (church) in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty on the edge of the Blackdown Hills. Honiton, 3 miles; Colyton (shops, pubs, tramway to Seaton), 4; the sea and �Jurassic Coast� at Beer and Branscombe, 4 miles; Sidmouth, 8; Lyme Regis (old harbour town), 12.
