About a mile from Southleigh, a large house beautifully converted from a barn (G191), a large farmhouse (G190) and two detached cottages (G192, G193), all high on a hillside above a picturesque valley, with almost 180 degree views of amazing rolling countryside. They are surrounded by around 200 acres of fields and bluebell woods which you are welcome to wander and enjoy deer and badger watching, the stream, trout lake (fishing), duck pond (carp fishing) and the gorgeous views. An exciting range of activities is available (extra), including clay pigeon shooting, amphibious vehicles and archery - tailor-made packages can be arranged. Peacocks strut the grounds, together with roaming chickens and ducks (eggs to collect), and the friendly owners are happy to show you the unusual pets (pigs, alpacas, ostrich, goats). Caterers can be recommended. ... … on the same 200 acre farmstead which you are welcome to wander, Lower Wadden Farmhouse is south-facing and detached with an attached annexe, garden (furniture, barbecue, swing, slide, climbing frame), a summer house/games room (half-sized pool table, table tennis, table football) and, in the large central courtyard between the house and its annexe, a covered hot tub and trampoline. Inside the farmhouse, plenty of room to relax. Low step from entrance lobby to hall; downstairs loo; two living rooms (TV/DVD, Wii) - one with door to central courtyard - the other enormous with plenty of comfy seating, electric flame-effect fire and door to light and sunny conservatory (overlooking the fabulous view, French windows to the patio); step down to dining room; large fitted kitchen/breakfast room (dishwasher, combi-microwave, gas range cooker with 5 burners/2 ovens/separate grill, 3 steps up to living room); utility room (washing machine, tumble drier, fridge-freezer, sink) and door to courtyard. Oak floors downstairs. Two staircases (stairgates) up to five bedrooms – two double (5' beds, TV/DVD, one with valley views); a twin (TV/DVD) with view over courtyard and sloping ceiling; another twin (TV) with views of the valley; and a third small twin (TV) overlooking the courtyard with part sloping ceiling; three bathrooms (suites - one with hand-shower and sloping ceiling; one with hand-shower, separate shower and sloping ceiling; and 3 steps up to one with corner bath plus hand-shower).
The single-storey annexe overlooks the courtyard. Open-plan living (TV/DVD)/dining/kitchen (microwave, fridge-freezer, washing machine) with large French windows to the courtyard and hot tub; a family bedroom with 5' bed and two singles (one a truckle) and TV; bathroom (suite with corner bath plus hand-shower and separate shower).

The 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'.
Southleigh: an unspoilt and off-the-beaten-track village (church, annual August show) in a valley 3 miles from Colyton (shops, pubs). Honiton (mainline railway station), 7½ miles; Exeter airport, 20; the beaches/sea at Branscombe and Beer, 4; Sidmouth (seaside town), 8; and pretty Lyme Regis, 9.
