Devon - Hemyock

Hemyock is a village in Devon, England. It is located approximately five miles from the Somerset town of Wellington. The River Culm flows through Hemyock. Hemyock was the former home of the St Ivel dairy processing plant, formerly where the butter-spreads 'St Ivel Gold' and 'Utterly-Butterly' were produced before being moved to a factory in the north of England.
Hemyock was also the birthplace of the National Federation of Young Farmers' Clubs. The first Young Culm Farmers Club in England began here in 1921, and it continues to prosper as the Culm Valley Young Farmers Club.
Hemyock is the largest village on the Blackdown Hills, which is now designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). The parish has an area of about 2350 hectares, and lies on the NW of the Blackdown Hills.
Hemyock is a typical upland settlement consisting of a central "town" surrounded by a number of hamlets (Culm Davey, Millhayes, Simonsburrow, Ashculme, Tedburrow, Madford, Mountshayne etc.). From the 16th century to the early 19th century much of the parish's wealth came from the production of wool. The population remained fairly constant throughout the 19th century, and until the end of the Second World War. Since then a number of housing estates have been built, and the population has increased to over 2,000.

Lydensign gets its name from long ago as the place where the password or sign was picked up to be handed over at Passby, a cottage down the hill, before visitors were allowed into the Castle grounds. Supposedly there are underground passages from Lydensign to the Castle but we have never found any evidence! 

Lydensign is a detached 3-bedroom cottage, some parts dating back almost 200 years, with 2 double beds, twin bedded room and a fully equipped bathroom. 

Linen, bath and kitchen towels are all provided. I always perform the changeover myself - thus making sure that everything is clean and ready for you so that you can start to enjoy your holiday as soon as you walk through the door.

The smaller sitting room has a night storage heater, open Victorian fireplace and a flat screen TV and DVD.
