In the heart of Upottery (pub, playing field/tennis court, 30 yards) sits the former coach house of 19th cent. Prime Minister, Lord Sidmouth. At one end, cleverly positioned for privacy, an attached, stone-built cottage on three levels. Inside, spacious and full of light with a lovely lawned garden with unheated splash pool (10' x 15' x 6' deep, available 23 May to 12 September) and hot tub (available all year) to the rear.

From shared gravelled forecourt, front door to high-ceilinged hall; smart beech fitted kitchen with granite worktops (dishwasher, washing machine, microwave, fridge-freezer), table/chairs; utility room (tumble drier); shower-room (suite); at the back, large dining room (table/chairs, sofa, TV) opens to a conservatory, from which doors out to the garden, pool and hot tub. Stairs up to first floor: large, comfortable living room (TV/Sky/DVD) with garden views; relaxing spa-like bathroom (suite with slipper bath plus hand-shower); a few steps up to study (office desk, sofa, chess table) and two bedrooms – a double, and a pretty single (footboard) with pull-out truckle bed; a few more steps up to the roomy master double (TV, some sloping ceilings) and smart en suite bathroom (suite plus bath-shower and hand-shower). All well done and good quality throughout, a great place to stay any time of year.

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'.

Honiton

Upottery: little Domesday village (church, pub) in the river Otter valley (birdwatching, wildlife, riverside walks) and the Blackdown Hills, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Nearest shop, 1½ miles. Golf and riding nearby. Close to World Heritage 'Jurassic Coast' at Lyme Regis (13 miles). Honiton, 5 miles; Exeter, 23.
