Farmhouse | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
� 4 miles from Colyton is the sleepy hamlet of Northleigh, deep in thick, lush hedgerow lanes in the Coly Valley. The lovely coastal villages of Beer, Sidmouth and Branscombe are 5-7 miles distant. On the edge of Northleigh, three cottages converted from traditional red Devon brick/stone barns on a small mixed farm raising beef, free range poultry and a few piglets. Ducks on the pond, cobblestones in the courtyard, a soppy dog and dignified cat make this an utterly charming place to stay, unwind and enjoy a friendly, rural idyll. There is a shared washing machine, tumble drier and freezer room, and games barn (table tennis, � snooker table, darts, table-top football) which can be adapted into a big dining room for special occasions, by arrangement. The Linney: door from courtyard to open-plan living/dining/kitchen (dishwasher, microwave) with TV/DVD and glazed doors to patio (table/chairs) and about an acre of shared lawn for energetic ball games or just enjoying the gorgeous rural views. Stairs up to two bedrooms � a double, and a twin; bathroom (suite plus bath-shower).

The West Country 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: ancient little town on the river Coly with buildings dating from the Domesday Book, Norman church and unique, independently owned shops, pubs and restaurants. Tramway to the coast at Seaton, 3 miles. Pecorama railway attraction/gardens, 5 miles. Honiton, 7 miles; Lyme Regis, 9. On the East Devon Way footpath between Lyme Regis and Exmouth.
