Whilst keeping its beautiful character and family heritage, the house certainly is full of the finer things in life and equipped with everything and more needed for a family holiday. The attention to detail in every room is amazing, there's an abundance of space for the entire family to relax in and it's all finished off with a magical two acre garden and woodland, ideal for exploring and adventure. A separate games barn with its own pool table and log burner mean you may never want to leave!
A magnificent handmade kitchen greets you as you enter, and this really is the hub of the house. A cute little breakfast room leads off to one side, and a comfy seating area makes this the perfect place to sit and chat while preparing a family feast to be enjoyed in the large dining room. There is an opulent formal sitting room complete with a roaring open fire to laze around in front of at the end of the day, and the perfect place within which guests can enjoy pre-dinner drinks and after dinner games.

The wallpapers and fabrics make each room within the house incredibly special and give it the homely, yet luxurious feel the ultimate holiday home should offer.

The beautiful village of Dalwood lies 3 miles from the unspoilt Devon market town of Axminster and just 8 miles from the stunning coastline and popular seaside town of Lyme Regis. With a local pub serving wonderful award-winning food, Dalwood is surrounded by beautiful countryside and an abundance of footpaths and bridleways.
The market town of Axminster, made famous for its carpets, was opened in 1755 by Thomas Whitty and "Axminsters" are still made in the town by Axminster Carpets. Celebrity chef and TV presenter Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall purchased an old inn that once provided the ballroom of the town, and converted it into his very first River Cottage Canteen and Deli (an organic produce shop/market and canteen). He also has his River Cottage H.Q. nearby in the Axe valley.
