Ideal touring base

These three holiday cottages are beautifully located in the peaceful Axe Valley where Devon, Dorset and Somerset meet. They have been sympathetically converted retaining character and charm to give spacious, comfortable and well-equipped accommodation. All cottages are single storey with easy wheelchair access, S19633 (ref 16018) and The Shippen (ref 16019) are both semi-detached and The Barn (ref 25497) is detached. An abundance of opportunities exist for walking, cycling, (nearby cycle path which is being extended from time to time), golf as well as fishing on the Nature Reserve Reservoir at Chard. Many local places of interest including the pretty, historic, carpet towns of Axminster and Chard, both with indoor swimming pools, P.O. stores, traditional inns and restaurants all to hand along with several quaint villages. Honiton, Forde Abbey, Cricket St Thomas, Hornsbury Mill, several NT properties and the beaches and attractions of Lyme Regis and Charmouth - part of the superb World Heritage Jurassic Coastline, all waiting to be explored. Other resorts include West Bay, with its harbour, and Seaton, which has its own tramway ride along the Axe Estuary, famous for its bird life, to Colyton.

Luke – 22 Sep 2018
"We had a great time staying at S19633. The cottage was lovely and well presented. For what we wanted it ticked all the boxes. However you should be aware that this very much is in the middle of no where, very rural and next to several working farms! This does mean it was a little tricky to find on our first day. You are likely to be woken up early by farm noise and to get anywhere you will likely have to drive (along narrow roads). The nearest "amenity" was a pub about 1.5 miles away.If any of that is a problem, I would go else where. However if you want something out of the way and quiet (in the evening!) this place is perfect.The hostess was also lovely - she even made sure we could have a cup of tea and biscuit on our arrival!"

"This is a very well equipped property in a peaceful location off the beaten track. We received a warm welcome from the owner who is very friendly and helpful."
"Good location for beaches and places of interest. Very clean and well equipped, only gripe would be nowhere private and pleasant to sit out with a glass of wine on a warm evening."
"no holiday. a long O.k. stay waiting for our property to be finished by the builders."
"lovely location in the countryside - quiet and peaceful good base for visiting Devon and Dorset, pleasent owners - couldn't ask for more"
"Excellent, home from home"
"Fantastic cottage in a beautiful location if a little tricky to find! Excellent accommodation everything and more that we could need. Utility room was a bonus as it had the boiler in and washing dried well in there. We appreciated the extras too like fresh flowers milk and cleaning stuff including dishwasher and washing tablets! We were lucky with the gorgeous weather all week and were well placed to visit Lyme Regis, Beer, Charmouth, Weymouth, Portland and Chesil beach. We loved Durdle Door and would have loved to have stayed longer! Will hopefully stay here again."
