In Whitford, 300 yards from Whitford Bridge and the River Axe, an attractive cottage, Grade II listed, part 16th cent., created from one side of the friendly owners' home. At the back, 5 steps up to own south-facing courtyard-style garden (tables/chairs, benches) and shed (lockable, tumble drier) for your bicycles/beach gear (outdoor boat parking, by arrangement). Behind this, a mown path winds up beside the owners' garden (children beware - unfenced pond, greenhouse) through a wildflower meadow to a level area (table/chairs) - the tranquillity and panoramic views make it worth the climb.Inside, prettily furnished with original charm (beams from 5'9”, knobbly walls/floors, narrowish stairs). Neat kitchen/dining room (slimline dishwasher, washing machine, microwave, fridge, electric hob/double oven) through to sunny conservatory (sofa, chairs, door to garden), both with garden outlook; snug living room (TV/DVD) with big inglenook (woodburner). Shower-room (suite). Upstairs (stairgate), a good-sized double bedroom (5' bed) with single day bed (for alternative sleeping), accessed through a neat shower-room (suite), and a twin. A delightful cottage in peaceful surroundings, a good spot for walking, cycling and coast.

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'.


Whitford: peaceful, pretty little village (church) on the River Axe, 4 miles from Axminster (small town, River Cottage canteen/deli). The south coast at Seaton, Beer, Lyme Regis and Sidmouth, 4-11 miles. One mile level walk/cycle to pubs/shops in Musbury, or Colyton (famous tramway to Seaton), 1½. Golf, 3 miles.
