Only a mile from the sea and set with its own little garden in 15 acres of lovingly tendered grounds, enjoying wonderful glimpses of the estuary, this former coach house contains a wealth of open trusses and has been attractively furnished. A self-contained wing of the owner’s historic Georgian home, dating from 1708, in a peaceful setting, it is within easy walking distance of Axmouth with its thatched colour-washed cottages and a restaurant and is only 4 miles away from Lyme Regis and the Dorest Coast. The Axe estuary is a delight for bird-watchers and windsurfers with public bird hides, paths and cycle ways. Seaton (2 miles) boasts a beach and an electric tramway. An 18-hole golf course, tennis, a nature reserve and the Jurassic Heritage coastal path and sandy beach are within 1 mile. Shops 2 miles.

    We were quite disappointed with this property. The garden was overgrown, the kitchen and bathroom were very outdated and rather grubby looking. On entering the property the damp was quite bad and the smell pervaded throughout. Unfortunately, there was a wasps nest in the eaves and quite a few wasps got into the lounge which we had to deal with. We were also asked for an extra £10. for the electricity which we think should have been added to the price of the property rental. All in all not a very good experience.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; We are sorry that you were disappointed with your winter week at our property. As you can see from many other reviews, this is an exception from our experience; most guests make a return visit. The kitchen is suited to the property, as it is dated from 1704 and the structure precludes us from doing any structural work to the property to alter this. The equipment is all up to date, and is all functional. Our kitchen and bathroom are cleaned to a very high standard by our caretaker, who takes pride in her work, and is reflected in our previous reviews. Again with the age of the property, this can sometimes reflect with the property feeling “damp” due to condensation in the wet winter months. I can assure that our property is always aired, and rooms are warmed prior to guests. With your comment on the wasps nest, we do have a gardener in the grounds, one full day a week. If he was told about the problem, he could have attended to that immediately and your problem could have been rectified. Also in the winter, we do prefer to have a more natural garden; this is something we do yearly. Regarding the £10 extra for electricity, this is advertised clearly on our website for the winter months, and you will have been made aware at the time of booking.

    We spent an absolutely perfect week at Cottage Pie. What a delightful cottage. The cottage is very well equipped and furnished and so private and secluded. We arrived to find a Devon cream tea laid out for us, milk in the fridge for our tea and a little notelet with contact details in case of any issues - a really welcoming touch. The cottage is quaint and quirky with the lounge, bedroom and bathroom upstairs and the kitchen/diner downstairs. The staircase between the lounge and the kitchen is best described as compact and because of this and the unusual layout of the cottage I would not recommend it to anyone with mobility issues. We had no problems with the stairs and actually felt that the quirkiness added to the appeal of the cottage. It is a short walk from the cottage to the village which boasts two pub restaurants and a church. At the bottom of the village street is a lovely little riverside green with picnic tables and benches - a good birdwatching spot. A further walk alongside the river brings you to the sea and to Seaton. Seaton has two supermarkets - a Tesco and a Coop, and lots of smaller shops. The tram from Seaton is well worth a trip. This cottage makes a lovely base for exploring a beautiful part of the country. We would definitely stay here again.

    It was spotlessly clean and provided everything we could need. Unfortunately, the garden shrubs were over-grown and so it was difficult to sit out, in comfort. The electric lights fused whilst we were there, and we couldn't find the fuse box so we suggest some simple guidance is provided about what to do if it happens again. In the event, the owner contacted the electrician who attended and sorted it very quickly. The homemade scones, jam and clotted cream were a lovely gesture and much appreciated.

    Seating in the lounge uncomfortable. Kitchen area cramped. Garden overgrown. Lack of written instructions regarding rubbish disposal. Good WiFi reception. Better TV than most cottages. Good shower. Quiet secluded location.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; We have never in many years have received a complaint regarding the comfort of the seats in the sitting room; they are quite expensive leather bound chairs. Yes, the kitchen is small but is fully equipped. There are clear instructions regarding disposal of rubbish on the blackboard in the kitchen. The small garden is mowed every week and again we have never received a complaint stating it was unkempt. There is a Fig Tree to the right of the door into the garden and a Flowering peony tree further down,but these are cutback from time to time. Lastly we appreciate the positive comments regarding certain other aspects on the Cottage.

    This is a charming home away from home. Walking distance to the Harbour pub which does excellent food, also The Ship Inn which we were told is also good but we didn't get a chance to try. The cottage is attached to the owners property, but very private with it's own little garden which was regularly visited by pheasants. The owners were on hand to help with any problems, whilst keeping a respectful distance to allow us to enjoy our privacy. The cottage itself is a converted stable with old beams and still has the wrought iron managers in the kitchen area. The lounge is up a very narrow staircase on the first floor and is super cozy. We would definitely return.
