Description from manager

Description

The small town of Sheldon nestles on the edge of the Blackdown Hills in Devon.The Log Cabin is situated in the grounds of the owner's trout farm. As its name suggests, it is a log cabin, made from pine and it offers accommodation for up to 4 people. The bedrooms and living accommodation are all spread out across one level and the living area has been designed in an open-plan style, comprising a kitchen, dining area and living area that has its own inglenook fireplace, so that you can enjoy the benefits of this region, even in the colder months.

Amenities: Electric convector heaters with woodburning stove in sitting area. Electric cooker, microwave, fridge, TV. All electricity inc. in rent, starter pack for woodburning stove provided (extra logs available for purchase from owner direct - £3.50 for a large net bag). Bed linen & towels inc. in rent. Covered veranda with garden furniture, leading to large lawned area (unfenced lake 15 yards, children to be supervised). Two well-behaved dogs welcome. Sorry, no smoking. Private trout fishing available in lake at extra charge (phone Sykes office for information on cost - 10% reduction for guests). Ample off road parking. Shop & pub 3 miles. (Owner can do basic shop before arrival on request). Note: As this property is situated in a valley, there is no mobile reception. Note: The garden in not enclosed, pet will need to be supervised when outdoors

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: The Hills are a nationally important landscape and were designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in recognition of the special qualities of its natural and built environment. Being relatively unspoilt, the Hills offer a rare sense of timelessness. A network of hedges, mature hedgerow trees and small copses link a rich mosaic of semi-natural habitats. The area is perfect for walks, cycling and horse riding where the quiet bridleways and byways offer many opportunities to explore and enjoy the locally distinctive buildings, archaeological remains and natural flora and fauna. Sheldon is centrally located to explore attractions further away, such as the City of Exeter with its ancient Cathedral, High Street shopping and arts centres. Historic Honiton is also nearby, giving you a chance to find out more about the honey exports that gave the town its name and, a few miles south, you'll find the unspoilt beaches of Exmouth and the rest of the Jurassic Coast.
