Superb large stone house in peaceful setting, yet close to Lyme Regis and Charmouth, Axminster famous for its carpets is easily accessible.

This superb large stone house has been built in a most peaceful rural setting, away from all roads, in one-third of an acre of garden and about 7 miles inland from the east Devon coast. The two nearest resorts are Lyme Regis and Charmouth, both with sandy beaches and holiday entertainments. Chard and Axminster lie about 5 miles distant with shops and railway station.
Famous for its fine carpets, Axminster stills produces them today, with the original factory being found near the church. There are good examples of Georgian houses to be seen here, and for those interested in architecture, the National Trust property of Shute Barton close by survives as one of the most important non-fortified manor houses of the Middle Ages. A mixture of Gothic windows, battlemented turrets and Tudor gatehouse mingle together, reflecting the fact that it parts of it were built during two different centuries. Another interesting property to visit is the Old Bakery, together with the manor mill and forge at Branscome, set in one of Devon’s prettiest cob-and-thatch villages. Operational until 1987, it was the oldest traditional working bakery in Devon, and now serves as a tearoom, with the bakery equipment on display to the public. The lace-making and pottery town of Honiton lies within easy reach and has a selection of interesting shops and an annual fair held in July, whilst a little further afield is Yeovil, well known for its glove-making industry spanning 350 years. Riding and golf in the area.
Lyme Regis is easily reached and the colourwashed cottages and elegant Regency and Victorian villas which line the seafront make this very photogenic town. Attractions for all the family include a museum of local history and geology, Dinosaurland and a marine aquarium. Seaton is within easy driving distance, and boasts a steep pebbly beach as well as an open-top tramway. Garage/shop

    The accommodation was good with the snooker table being a particular plus - the only two comments I have are on the outside - it would be better if the garden was fenced especially as it is advertised as children and animal friendly, which because of that it isn't - it's also very steep for smaller children. The BBQ area is unfortunately located, as it gets no late afternoon/evening sun. The location was a problem as it was far more remote than we anticipated and the journey to the main road always ended up with reversing to find passing places - this was not found relaxing by the drivers! Finally we were less than impressed by the contact (not sure whether this was the owner or not) who, when we queried the fact that the fridge wasn't working, said that 4 previous guests had also queried this, it had been checked out and there was nothing wrong with it - his tone implied that both they and we were idiots which was not appreciated. As it happens we fixed the fridge ourselves but had to defrost the freezer to do so as it had iced up the vent into the fridge preventing the fridge from staying cool.
