Description

In Hawkchurch, 200 yards from the pub, Puffin Cottage is a detached single-storey cottage converted from an artist's studio. It looks over its own patio (table/chairs) and very pretty garden (small unfenced wildlife pond), beyond which are the owners' goats, pigs, chickens, geese and veg patch (eggs and fresh seasonal organic veg available); small, enclosed lawned area (loungers) to one side of the cottage.

Inside, all smart and stylish with oak floors in the living areas and bedrooms. From the patio, French windows into naturally light living/dining/fitted kitchen (slimline dishwasher, washing machine, microwave, fridge-freezer, electric cooker) with big windows, multi-fuel burner, large white leather sofa, TV/DVD; 3 steps up to two bedrooms – a double (5' bed), and one with 4' bed (access to one side only) which can be converted to 3' bunks by arrangement (limited clothes-hanging space). Smart slate-floored bathroom (suite with roll-top bath plus hand-shower and separate shower).

Location description from owner

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'.

Hawkchurch

Hawkchurch: where Dorset meets Devon, a village of roses - in 1894 the pioneer rose-growing rector planted roses around every door. Pretty little village with fine church, good food pub, shop and friendly atmosphere. The 'Jurassic Coast' (cliffs full of fossils) and Lyme Regis, 7 miles; Axminster (small town), 4.
