Inspired by agriturismos, this former vicarage in the Coly valley, east Devon, is being turned into a smallholding, guesthouse and restaurant. There are five bedrooms and a self-contained annexe (due to open on 12 April), plus three dining areas and two living rooms. The house sits in expansive gardens and woodland, with a tennis court and outdoor heated pool. The owner recently retrained as a chef and will be serving simple nightly suppers (pies, casseroles) and a four-course set menu from Thursday to Sunday, using ingredients from the polytunnel and kitchen garden, and surrounding farms. Cookery classes are planned in the on-site bakery and charcuterie room. The room rate includes home-baked refreshments on arrival and a farmhouse breakfast. It is a short drive to the Jurassic Coast and fishing villages such as Beer and Branscombe.
