G47 - The Stables
About the home
in Offwell, built around 1828 as the summer residence of the Bishop of Llandaff whose family were village rectors for generations, is handsome, Grade II listed Offwell House. Adjoining is the north wing, topped with a pretty dovecote and wrought iron weather vane, where the former stables, coach house and hayloft have been finely converted with flair and thought into three good cottages; all well done, good quality and attractively furnished with much style throughout. A sweeping gravelled drive (shared with main house where friendly owners and their young family live) leads to the front of the cottages and an enclosed, partly tree-shaded area, grassed in parts and shared by The Stables and The Coach House, each with own table/chairs (also small sitting-out area within rear courtyard); the first-floor Hayloft has a small, private balcony (table/chairs). Alongside, the owners' grassy, wild meadow (which you, and dogs on leads, are welcome to wander) and access to 50 acres of public woodland with large wildlife ponds (unfenced - children take care). Shared tennis court in owners' walled garden. Laundry room (washing machine, tumble drier, sink) in rear courtyard. Smart, stylish interiors with original features cleverly incorporated. Pretty location.
Adjoining the main house, The Stables (see arrow 1): gravelled path to front door; 2 steps down to good-sized, open-plan living/dining room (TV/DVD, iPod dock), light and airy with high ceiling, laminate floor/large rug, electric 'living flame' fire, big dining table (views to church), original tack pegs and door to rear courtyard (small sitting-out area, table/chairs). Downstairs loo. Kitchen (dishwasher, microwave, fridge-freezer, gas hob/electric oven) with smart, fitted cream units, back door to rear courtyard and stairs (stairgates) up to two bedrooms – a double with white wrought iron bed and en suite bathroom (suite plus bath-shower), and a room with two singles (wardrobe on landing) and en suite shower-room (suite).

The West Country / 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'.
The Honiton / Offwell area
Offwell: small village (PO/shop, 15th cent. church, woodland with own wildlife trust) amid beautiful hills and valleys, 3 miles east of Honiton. Surrounded by pretty hamlets (Widworthy, Cotleigh, 2 miles); 8 miles to the sea at Seaton and Branscombe; Sidmouth (seaside town) and Lyme Regis with its fossil cliffs, about 12. Golf, 3 miles.
