Pippinsands is where rustic country style and modern resources blend seamlessly; the result is a gorgeous and charming house that’s wonderful for large group holidays of all kinds, for big family holidays, refined hen weekends, special celebrations, reunions of friends and corporate breaks.
When you come and stay at Pippinsands you’ll notice the unhurried pace of life, how mellow the house feels, and the peace and quiet. Leave the car where it is and step out into the fields to stroll down across the valley and along the river, or amble up to Dumpdon Hill to watch the sunset. You can even walk into Honiton, a busy market town with supermarkets, several independent shops and places to eat, and a twice weekly market lining the main street.
Take your pic of family days out; a must is the ice cream parlour just down the road, but also high on the list should be Wildwood Escot, the Donkey Sanctuary near Sidmouth, Diggerland, and Crealy Park. Exeter is good too, you can shop, visit the cathedral and the museum, or take a tour of the 14th century underground passages. For something different, go and watch banger racing at Smeatharpe, or planes coming in to land at Dunkeswell Aerodrome; if you want a wee slice of action there’s Go Karting at Mansell Raceway, or head down to Haldon Forest to swing on the high ropes at Go Ape, or to take a Segway tour.
The Jurassic Coast is only a short drive away, with varied beaches from the sands and shingle of Sidmouth and Exmouth to the quaint fishing villages of Beer, Branscombe and of course, Lyme Regis. Explore the rockpools, visit the aquarium, go mackerel fishing, play crazy golf.
