This friendly cottage has a really spacious open plan ground floor with the flexibility of a bedroom and bathroom on the ground floor too.
It's not every cottage that comes with a fabulous hard surface tennis court for guests to use. Racquets and balls can be provided.
The lovely master bedroom is on the ground floor.
This is the spacious first floor sitting-room with a Juliette balcony overlooking the patio and towards the tennis court.
There is plenty of space at the dining-table for happy family holiday meals, although Whimple has two lovely pubs to choose from for eating out.

The en-suite.
Back downstairs the kitchen is really well-equipped. It opens onto a very sheltered enclosed patio.
The beams are a reminder of the history of this barn conversion - take care where they are low, at the edges of the room.
The family bathroom is also on the ground floor.
This bedroom can be set up as a single or as a twin room - there is a truckle bed with a proper mattress tucked beneath the bed in the photo.
This is the single bedroom, with views across the open farmland.
Parents can watch their children play tennis from the cottage balcony.
East Devon and west Dorset have a stunning coastline - the heritage Jurassic Coast.
Another view of the coastline - a very easy drive from the cottage.

Fantastic cottage to relax and unwind as well as a lovely environment to spend time with the family especially the tennis court. Nice location but a drive to most places but a lovely pub just a short walk down into Whimple.

Our stay was peaceful and very comfortable. We found plenty to do and would strongly recommend Higher Yellands as a place to stay. A special thank you to the owners for their friendly welcome and thoughtful provision of everything we needed.

A comfortable cosy cottage with character, plenty of room and modern equipment for a family to have ALL they need.... and ideal for tennis players.

Everything to a very high standard. Lovely cottage and nice hosts.

Really enjoyed our stay at this cottage, there are plenty of glasses cups mugs and utensils. The hosts were very nice. it was a pleasure to stay here and would definitely recommend it and would definitely return

Superb, excellent, nice to have been there.

Everything we needed for a self catering accommodation with places nearby to eat out too. The accommodation was deceptively spacious.

The cottage was lovely and beautifully equipped, far beyond our expectations! Our boys loved the spaciousness and being on a farm seeing cows, and it was the perfect base to go to many other places. We would definitely consider booking again!

Excellent stay!

Property exceeded our expectations. Our hosts were a delight and their 'goodies' were much appreciated.

A lovely cottage with all the amenities you would have at home. The tennis court was a great addition too. A very quiet and secluded location. Definitely recommend.

We had an incredical holiday at the cottage. Nigel and Sue are wonderful human beings and made our stay very pleasurable.

Higher Yellands Cottage was the perfect cottage for our family holiday exploring Devon and Dorset. It had everything we needed, and was a very comfortable place to call home for our week away. It's location is just what we were after - quiet and rural, yet walking distance to a small village with a pub, and within close distance of lots of beauty spots. We would definitely return and also recommend to others.

A wonderful stay at Higher Yellands. Lovely friendly owners and the tennis court was a wonderful bonus!! Will be looking for one at every cottage we book now!

A well-designed and comfortable cottage in a very quiet location.

Lovely cottage and great owners. Really enjoyed our stay which enabled us to visit family in the neighbouring village. Thank you.

The owners were very helpful and could not do enough to make my 98 year old father’s stay comfortable. Thank you

I would recommend the cottage to anyone for its rural location and get away from the bustle of the city.

Enjoyed holiday played tennis everyday. Lovely countryside,

We really enjoyed our stay.

We, 2 adults 3 children, highly enjoyed our stay at Higher Yellands Cottage. Very calm location, spacey, clean and fully equipped house with plenty of room for 5 people. Peacefull surrounding and absolutely lovely hosts! The tennis court is a super extra plus! We would definitely stay there again and honestly recommend Higher Yellands Cottage for a quiet holiday in Devon, just 15 minutes from the beaches and with all major attractions of Devon and Cornwall within reach for daily excursions by car!

This is an excellent property with everything you could possibly need available. The owners were friendly and went over and above. Although slightly off the beaten track this was a good base to explore the area. We would not hesitate to return here.

Perfect cottage in a secluded village with all the comforts of home and then some! Just mind your head on the rafters! Cottage is amazingly quiet, with Chickens and Ducks to keep you company. Owners lovely! Cannot recommend this enough!
