Woodend Farm (2786)

9.3 miles NE of Honiton | Sleeps 6 + cot* | Price per week £542 - £1485

This luxury farmhouse in the Blackdown Hills, with wonderful garden hot tub, is in an idyllic rural setting on the edge of the village of Bishopswood, within walking distance of the Candlelight Inn, and an easy drive from Dorset’s Jurassic Coast at Lyme Regis. The traditional character of Woodend Farm is intact but a contemporary makeover has added style and comfort throughout, from the designer kitchen to the sumptuous bedrooms. This gorgeous, historic house has a huge fireplace in the sitting-room with a French-style wood-burner and a grate for an open fire in the original range in the dining-room. In keeping with its age, there are some low door lintels, steep stairs (with handrails) and low window sills upstairs.

A great treat here is the offer from the Owners to provide their guests with a wonderful home-cooked meal on arrival, or at other times during your holiday by arrangement. The freezer which is in the dedicated utility room for the farmhouse (access just next to the back door) can also be stocked with delicious home-cooked ready meals if you wish. One of the great delights here is the large south-facing garden, not only for the hot tub but also with a barbecue and outside seating for wonderful al fresco meals. Right next to the garden is a lovely large meadow which you are all welcome to enjoy, four-legged friends included – this is shared with the guests staying at The Cow Shed (3198) next door, although both properties have their own enclosed outside space that is not overlooked by the other. Beyond the meadow the views stretch right across the valley beyond. If you would like to book both properties together, The Cow Shed has the capacity for a wonderful dining-table for 14 people which would be set up for you. Whether for a memorable family holiday or a celebration with friends, this is the place to be!
