One of three holiday cottages situated on Primrose Farm, this property offers accommodation for groups of up to four people and, as its name suggests, has stunning views. This cottage is an idyllic haven for a small family or a group of friends. For the winter months, there is oil-fired, under-floor heating which makes the cottage a toasty place to be. In summer, the only place to be is outside in the large, lawned garden that offers ample opportunity for a good, old-fashioned barbeque.

Region: Devon, with its quiet country lanes, patchwork of lush green fields and sleepy villages is not to be missed. Stately home lovers will be spoiled and why not finish with a scrumptious Devonshire cream tea?
Town: Situated in the heart of the Blackdown Hills is the traditional Devon village of Upottery. The Blackdown Hills have been designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and offer excellent opportunities for bird watchers, walkers and wildlife enthusiasts. The ‘otter’ in the village’s name is taken from the nearby River Otter. In 2006, Upottery won the ‘Best Kept Village in Devon’ and remains a well-tended, well-looked after hamlet that is radiant with flowers in the summer months. History enthusiasts and amateur archaeologists will welcome a chance to visit the fossil beaches of Lyme Regis and Charmouth, part of the West Country’s Jurassic Coast. You can easily spend a day here with a fossil-hammer, collecting ammonites, or simply enjoying the rugged coastline. 23 miles away from Upottery, you will find the Cathedral City of Exeter. Exeter is an historic city, boasting original Roman walls, underground passages and a 10th Century Cathedral. In addition, it is well-served by a fantastic shopping centre and a wide range of bars and restaurants to choose from

This property lived up to every expectation. We had not used Sykes Cottages before, but we were not disappointed. The view was just spectacular, accommodation bright and clean, every mod con. in the kitchen and the cottage ideal for my disabled daughter and elderly mother. The welcome pack of eggs, bacon, milk, scones, jam, cream and fresh flowers from the owners was a lovely touch.
