A Holiday With a View!

Come for a relaxing break in the heart of the Blackdown Hills, Devon, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty; and stay at Sunnybank.  Not your usual country holiday cottage but a modern, light and airy villa with stunning, panoramic views across the Culm Valley.

The Blackdown Hills are an often overlooked area of Devon and Somerset, full of secluded valleys and wooded hilltops; the scenery is enchantingly beautiful.  Studded with interesting landmarks, there is a  wealth of fascinating local history waiting to be discovered.


With four double bedrooms and three bathrooms, Sunnybank is a self-catering holiday cottage accommodating up to 8 guests in spacious comfort.  It has been furnished in a modern style with the needs of our visitors specifically in mind.  No effort has been spared to ensure every luxury has been provided; from spacious open-plan living, top of the range kitchen appliances, super-king sized beds, first-class bathrooms, on demand hot water and full central heating.

!!We have a luxury outdoor Hot Tub At Sunnybank for guests to enjoy!!

Relax and enjoy time in our outdoor 6-person Elite Hot Tub.  It is situated on our second patio area which has shelter and seclusion but still with the stunning views that characterise Sunnybank.

There is also table football, darts, pool, table tennis an outdoor boule pitch for the competitively minded or books, games and DVD if a more sedate pastime is required.

Sunnybank has WiFi internet access; ideal for keeping in contact with friends and family and surfing the web.

Sunnybank would be the ideal destination for family get-togethers and celebrations of all kinds. 

Although large enough to accommodate 8 guests Sunnybank is also ideal for smaller groups who prefer more spacious surroundings.

At present due to government restrictions we are only allowed to accommodate 6 guests unless they are all part of the same family unit and live at the same address.


We understand the demands of the present holiday market and unlike many self-catering holiday cottages are happy to take short-break and last minute bookings throughout the year. We also offer a late departure supplement when bookings allow.

You can book directly ON-LINE with our simple, secure booking system or contact me by email or phone to discuss your holiday plans.

Just outside of the village of Hemyock, Sunnybank is reached by a quiet country lane and nestles in the lee of Pencross hill facing due west with stunning views as far as Dartmoor.

15 minutes from the M5 motorway and only 2½ hours from both London and the Midlands, Sunnybank is an ideal base for visiting the whole of the South West. Only 45 minutes from both north and south coasts, Dartmoor and Exmoor. There are also plenty of local attractions to fill a visit without travelling far at all!

For a quieter stay there is plenty of walking to suit all abilities in the locality, otherwise relax in the peace and quiet of Sunnybank watching the countryside go by from the garden or hot tub, or just curl up in front of the woodburner. We also have a small private carp pond where guests can spend time trying to catch the 'one that got away'.

Pets are welcome at Sunnybank at the discretion of the owner.

The Choice is limitless and yours!!
