    “Although property initially looked stunning, there were lots of areas where attention to detail on cleaning was lacking.”

    Door handle on inner door stuck shut and after trying to report it to the Chester office. No response to date. Kitchen had everything we needed. Lounge was a good size. TV signal was appalling, even though we only wanted to watch the football. This was impossible.

The property

Rhododendron House is a magnificent and imposing Grade 2 listed building located in a peaceful woodland setting yet only a short drive from the popular seaside town of Lyme Regis and the UNESCO World Heritage Jurassic Coast. An imposing building, this five bedroom house has been designed and furnished to an exceptionally high standard with high ceilings and delightful touches throughout offering guests a wonderful base for enjoying all that this area has to offer. The house is approached by a long sweeping drive taking you through the impressive grounds and electric gates open and lead to the four parking spaces adjacent to the house. Inside, the layout has been carefully considered and includes a spacious lounge with large wall-mounted TV and comfortable seating, where you can sit and take in the views over the grounds and countryside beyond. A separate smaller snug provides a quieter spot to relax with a book. The large kitchen is the heart of the home with wall-mounted tv, feature island and doors opening to the garden and flooding the room with light. Equipped to the same high standard, the kitchen is the perfect place to create meals for the group to enjoy, either around the table in the dining room or alfresco on the rear terrace. A staircase leads to the five bedrooms located on the first floor including a spacious king-size bedroom with ensuite shower room, a double room and a twin bedroom both with en-suite cloakrooms and all enjoying views over the grounds. The two further spacious king-size bedrooms have use of the family bathroom with whirlpool bath or the separate wet room with shower. The woodland setting where the house is located is impressive with specimen trees and mature planting including azaleas and rhododendrons from which the house takes its name. A rear paved terrace runs the length of the house and makes the most of its peaceful location with views over the garden where you can often see grazing deer and other wildlife. Enjoy a walk through the expansive grounds which link up with footpaths traversing this area including the nearby nature reserve at Trinity Hill or into the village of Uplyme itself, with its shop and village pub. Park in Uplyme to pick up a riverside walk from the village into Lyme Regis with its family friendly beaches, galleries and popular visitor attractions including the Cobb harbour. Why not take a visit to neighbouring Charmouth where you can try your hand at fossil hunting or learn about the area’s rich fossil history at the Heritage centre on the seafront. Further afield, nearby Seaton with its mile-long promenade is worthy of a visit or take a trip to Bridport with its street markets.. A truly impressive holiday home where holiday memories can be made.

About the location

UPLYME

Lyme Regis 1 mile

The beautiful countryside surrounding the village of Uplyme, on the borders of Devon and Dorset, is a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, criss-crossed by bridleways and footpaths including the East Devon Way, and providing perfect country walks and superb views. The area was chosen by TV chef Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall for his River Cottage HQ at Park Farm, where you can treat yourself to a great meal. Just a short drive takes you to the stunning Jurassic Coast at Lyme Regis. This delightful historic seaside town boasts a maze of narrow streets, with an interesting array of shops and cafes, whilst the sandy beach lends itself to great bathing and watersports, and the bustling little harbour offers regular fishing trips, or try your hand at fossil hunting. Within an easy drive is the quaint town of Axminster, or how about a ride on the Seaton Tramway? A glorious location for a varied and interesting holiday.
