If you were looking for cottages like Lower Upcott, how about trying these:

Lower Upcott farmhouse and its detached 'grand design' barn conversion housing a games-room and 'private cinema' TV-room together create a unique and breathtaking holiday property for up to ten guests, with flexible options for smaller groups of eight or six guests at certain times of the year. Add to this a wonderful stone terrace, huge lawns which truly celebrate the far-reaching rural views and a pretty woodland copse, with a maze of paths, for children to play in. This stunning and spacious period farmhouse is an easy drive inland from the endless sandy surfing beaches of the north Devon coast. The tranquil setting is very private and rural, high up on the side of an unspoilt valley outside the pretty village of Chittlehampton, with utterly stunning panoramic views. Without a doubt Lower Upcott is a very special holiday home. The farmhouse has been beautifully renovated and has lovely light-filled sociable living space that opens out onto the really large south-facing terrace with the gardens spread out beyond it. The view stretches for miles and all four of the farmhouse bedrooms enjoy the same outlook. The fifth bedroom, with its en suite bathroom, is in the barn conversion just behind the farmhouse. The barn conversion doubles up as an indoor games-room for you all to use. With high ceilings to the open plan living space, which has large sofas, a giant TV screen, a wood-burning stove and under-floor heating, it is a perfect add-on to the main house. The main farmhouse has the flexibility of a really large open plan living-room with kitchen and dining areas as the main social space, complete with a wood-burning stove and space for guests to eat together. There are a few steps down to the sofa-area at the far end of the room which has floor to ceiling bookshelves and a whole library of books for you to enjoy whilst there. There is a walk-through music-room with a piano - the stairs to the first floor rise from this space, and beyond it is the cosy snug with wood-burning stove and TV. The stunning open plan space of the barn provides you with further relaxed seating, table-tennis, and, in effect, a cinema-room, such is the size of the TV screen! Lower Upcott is not overlooked by any other properties and has the most fabulous gardens surrounding the property.
