½ mile from Tedburn St Mary and handy for the A30 (direct to Exeter and to Cornwall), a private drive leads to two stylish cottages newly converted from a 16th cent. long barn which once stabled heavy horses, next door to the owners' farmhouse. Good-sized shared lawned garden (tables/chairs) and each cottage has its own patio (table/chairs). Inside, the original character has been carefully preserved with oak beams and sloping ceilings. The cottages have an interconnecting door (lockable), so work especially well when booked together. Comfortable cottages in a good central location.The Yoke (arrow 2): From the garden, stable doors to smart open-plan living/dining/fitted kitchen (washer-drier, microwave) with oak floor, 'living flame' electric fire, TV/DVD (and the interconnecting door). Steep, narrow stairs wind up to a large double bedroom (5' bed) with sweeping views over fields; bathroom (suite plus bath-shower).

Devons River Country: Devon's middle. This is farmers' Devon. You come here to be amongst them: to walk and admire their beautiful, rich-soiled, hilly and wooded farmland and enjoy their excellent, proper pubs in usually hill-top, compact, unspoilt villages; and to fish for trout and perhaps salmon in the deep wooded and very beautiful valleys of the rivers Torridge, Taw, Tamar and Exe especially and for trout in reservoirs. Great, magnetic views of Dartmoor and Exmoor from most hill-tops, and it's an easy drive to both. But don't think a daily trip to the sea will be a doddle.
Tiverton is the main town (you can go barging on its canal); Crediton, in its red-soil vale, Torrington, where glass is blown, and South Molton are the others. All have proper, individual, useful, and, in some cases unusual, shops, for the locals firstly. Cider is made at Winkleigh, and it's a good place for lunch. Hatherleigh is good for several things, including its market.
Tedburn St Mary: village (church, two pubs, PO/shop) dating back to the Domesday Book, in rolling countryside. Golf course/hotel. Very easy access from A30. Extremely convenient, central Devon location. Dartmoor (wonderful walking), 3 miles. Exeter (shops, restaurants, cinemas, theatre, leisure centres), 7 miles. Castle Drogo (Nat. Trust), 6. South coast (Starcross), 18. Easy drive to Cornwall (32 miles).
