This ground floor studio is well away from crowds and roads, in spring the wildflowers enfold you and birdsong will lift your soul. The living room, kitchen and bedroom are all in one large space – everything well thought-out, good to look at and also practical. You’re left some local treats like Sandford Orchards cider and coffee from Miles Roasters – find books to read, squishy places to read them and a smart TV for film nights.
Best of all, you have your own south-facing garden for summer lunches and suppers – stock up with local food and wine at the brilliant Exe Valley Farm Shop (15 minutes by car.) There are country views and a fire pit for cheering warmth – it’s a dark sky area so on clear nights you’ll have plenty to watch.
It’s ideal for walkers with no busy road and loads of footpaths – you’ll find maps.
