If you were looking for cottages like Higher Yellands Cottage, how about trying these:

This cheerful cottage is close to the east Devon village of Whimple, between Honiton and Exeter. It is a pretty and peaceful rural area surrounded by traditional apple orchards and is a short drive to the spectacular east Devon/Dorset Jurassic Coast from Exmouth to Lyme Regis and beyond.

The sitting-room with its Juliet balcony looking out over the sheltered sun-trap patio and towards the proper hard surface tennis court (you can borrow racquets and tennis balls but please remember proper sports shoes), is on the first floor, along with the single and twin bedrooms. The twin bedroom has truckle beds with fully-sprung mattresses and these are full-size so good for adults as well as children. If you want to use this room as a single, one of them tucks easily out of the way beneath the other.

The open plan kitchen/dining-room, en suite double bedroom and family bathroom are on the ground floor. The owners' farmhouse is offset to the rear of the cottage and so you will feel very private.
