Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends.
Coryton House, Coryton, Okehampton, Devon, sleeps 12-16 in 8 bedrooms.
Coryton House is a Grade II listed former Rectory built in the 1830s and extended in the 1930s. Situated in west Devon and south facing, it overlooks sheep filled fields across the Lyd valley. This is an exceptionally peaceful and beautiful valley, hidden away from the summer tourist traffic and the world in general. Coryton House is ideal for a family reunion or a celebration, with enough space for plenty of personal privacy but great opportunities for enjoying being together.
The house is on the side of the valley with terraced gardens and woodland above, and fields below. The sunny terrace is sheltered from the wind but has expansive views; and is also a fabulous spot for star watching at night.
The garden and woodland are full of camellias, snowdrops, bluebells, wild garlic, and hydrangeas. In the summer the swallows twist and turn above the garden in gangs. At night the bats take over. The owls hoot all around the year!
The furniture is mainly antique. The pictures are largely a mix of modern representative, family portraits, and school photos spanning a century. We have a growing collection of exotic and funny hats and headgear!
The studded front door has a working bell pull and huge bolts. Inside the door is a stone flagged entrance hall with plenty of space for dog beds, wellies and walking sticks, and a large loo with a splendid view.
The dining hall is 40' long with parquet flooring, and flexible dining arrangements. The main dining table seats 12, but extra tables and chairs can be added on. There is comfy seating in a Knole sofa and deep armchairs around an open fire. The window seat catches the afternoon sun.
The large south facing sitting room has a wood burning stove and a leaded window with long window seat and radiator underneath. There is a big bookcase with a range of books, including local guides and maps, board games, playing cards, and jigsaw puzzles.
Double doors and a hatch lead from the dining room to the smart slate flagged kitchen. The kitchen table seats 6-8.
The house has 8 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms and 2 downstairs cloakrooms. Lots of coat hooks and boot space by back door. Well equipped shared utility room.
