About Hele Lane Cottage

Hele Lane Cottage is a pretty thatched holiday cottage situated in the depths of beautiful countryside within Mid-Devon on a 273 acre family run farm. It is perfectly positioned by the river and is the quintessential chocolate box cottage when the garden is in glorious full bloom. It has recently been updated but still retains much of its original character and is an ideal country retreat for families or couples looking to escape to the country. Whether you are looking for a short break or a longer holiday, the owners will be happy to accommodate you and if you want a real rest, breakfast can also be offered in the farmhouse. Your dog is also welcome (for a small additional charge), making this a great location for the whole family!

Centrally located, Hele Lane Cottage provides an excellent base for visiting the areas many attractions and places of interest. The landscape is amazingly varied from Dartmoor's dramatic windswept scenery to Exmoor's rolling coombes; and the vast golden beaches of the North coast to the South coasts quaint pretty fishing villages and hidden coves - an area that truly has something for all.

Country and outdoor activities are popular in this area of Devon with plenty of shoots and other outdoor pursuits on offer. In spring point-to-points take place locally and in the autumn there are local ploughing matches providing a fun day out for the whole family. For walking enthusiasts, there are some fantastic local bracing walks which will give you a healthy appetite for sampling the fresh local produce on offer at the pubs in the area (the nearest is within a half mile walk).

Hele Lane Cottage has an enclosed lawned garden with a picnic table and chairs and plenty of space for children to let off some steam and adults to relax. A gate leads to open fields where at times the owners sheep can be seen wandering by and there is a river where you can stroll along its banks and watch the wildlife, herons, ducks or you may be lucky to see a kingfisher. There are a wide variety of different birds to spot including buzzards, little owls and even a barn owl. There are also breakfast size trout in the river should you bring your fishing rod with you and be lucky enough to catch one!
