    “Lovely property, very comfortable and well-maintained.”

    Great location, wonderful garden. One suggestion for improvement would be providing clearer instructions for managing the boiler. We couldn't find any information in the user manual, and it took us some time to get hot water in the radiators throughout the house (this Easter was quite chilly). Otherwise, we had a very enjoyable stay.

With off-road parking, a superb garden and character features, this cottage makes a wonderful base to explore popular fossil hunting beaches and the South West Coastal footpaths, while offering all you could need to enjoy your self-catering stay with loved ones. Inside, the sitting room boasts an exposed stone fireplace with log burner to cosy up in front of while you watch the Smart TV, while the kitchen/diner, with its farmhouse style, is sure to invite the chef of the group to rustle up a tasty meal to eat as a family at the dining table. Outside, the impressive barbecue hut and large gardens create an alfresco social space to enjoy at any time of day. Back inside, get some rest and choose from three well-presented bedrooms; the double and twin are ideal for couples and children, while the master bedroom, a king-size with an en-suite and TV with Freeview, means you can savour a lazy morning. The owner provides a welcome pack for your arrival to ensure a great start to your holiday and will include milk, tea and a selection of locally sourced produce and treats. Take your four-legged friends out for a delightful stroll along the River Axe or one of the many walks within the East Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Head into the market town of Axminster, take a stroll around the town and learn about its carpet-making history which is showcased in the town’s heritage centre. Popular eateries in the area includes River Cottage HQ, known for its TV show and locally sourced and showcased food, or The Tytherleigh Arms for those looking for delicious food in a casual and inviting setting. Just a short drive will take you to the seaside town of Lyme Regis, most famous for its family friendly beaches and Cobb Harbour, the town museum and the local aquarium. Worthy of a visit is the nearby Forde Abbey where a peaceful stroll can be taken around its award-winning gardens. Further afield, animal lovers may want to visit the Abbotsbury Swannery, home to the world’s only managed colony of nesting mute swans.
