Daisy Cottage is peacefully situated in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty mid-way between the small East Devon towns of Colyton and Honiton and close to the coast.This attractive cottage is situated close to the peaceful rural hamlet of Northleigh, only a short drive from the Lyme Bay coast and has been tastefully renovated to create a comfortable and welcoming holiday cottage that takes advantage of some stunning country views. The ground floor provides a light and airy open-plan living area with a newly fitted kitchen/diner and a lounge area with cosy woodburner. A pristine modern bathroom includes a shower over the bath and under floor heating. Full height windows extend the living space, opening out onto a private south-facing courtyard providing a lovely suntrap in which to sit and relax. Upstairs there are two bedrooms, a double and a twin.
The cottage is quietly tucked away in an idyllic rural setting, surrounded by green fields and wooded hills, only a short drive from the dramatic World Heritage coastline and the many pretty towns and villages of East Devon and West Dorset. Walkers will be spoilt for choice with a network of local footpaths accessible from the doorstep. The East Devon Way passes within a mile of the cottage.

The owner was extremely welcoming and helpful. He was attentive when we arrived and clearly happy to help, but at the same time not overbearing. The cream tea on arrival was a joy!
