Cottage | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 5
On a hill overlooking Dalwood, and with all rooms enjoying a magnificent view south, is this detached, timber-clad, dormer-style cottage converted from a barn on the owners' 4 acre smallholding. It has been converted and refurbished to a high standard. Easy, attractive footpath down the hill through fields to the village, ½ mile. Outside, lawned garden (table/chairs, barbecue). Steps up to decking (gated) at the back of the cottage which projects to take advantage of the view. Inside, modern beech and stainless steel fitted kitchen/dining room (microwave, dishwasher, fridge-freezer, washer-drier); comfy double-aspect living room (woodburner, TV/DVD) with two enormous 9' high, glazed doors with balustrade overlooking that view; off the kitchen, a large twin bedroom with child's day bed and en suite shower-room (suite with double cubicle), and tiny porch with door to outside; at the back, a door leads out to the decking. Steep, narrow stairs (stairgate) up to attractive attic double bedroom (TV) with lovely large en suite bathroom (suite with free-standing, modern roll-top bath plus hand-shower in the centre under the eaves). Sleeps maximum of 4 adults. An unusual and most attractive house with wonderful views, well placed for exploring Devon, Dorset and Somerset.

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'.
Dalwood: pretty, friendly village (church, good food pub, PO/shop) within the Blackdown Hills conservation area. Axminster (small town), 4 miles; Honiton, 6 miles. The south coast at Lyme Regis, Seaton, Beer and Sidmouth, 7-11 miles. Golf, fishing, riding nearby, and miles of footpaths.
