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.

Quirky but charming cottage with upstairs sitting room and en-suite bedroom, and downstairs kitchen/diner in old stable accessed by narrow stairs. Lovely quiet location with pheasants in the garden and sheep in neighbouring fields. Local pubs are within easy walking distance and about a mile from the town centre with plenty of shops, takeaways and a large supermarket. Some equipment and fittings slightly dated, but all functional; Sky TV and WiFi provided. Slight damp smell in unheated main staircase, otherwise main living areas of the cottage were fine.

On the plus side, the cottage is in a tranquil location & a short walk through the 'secret path' to a side road opposite leads safely to the village and two pleasant pubs. Axmouth is close to Seaton where there is a large Tesco and other facilities. The garden was quite overgrown to the point where sunshine didn't much reach the small patio. The cottage itself is very old and could be described as quaint. However, the decor and furnishings are tired and the cottage felt & smelled of damp. Mould was evident to some of the woodwork and the hall carpet and there were a lot of woodlice around the place. The appliances were generally OK although broadband dropped out from time to time and the ceiling/wall lights fused twice after it had rained. The owners did call an electrician who said everything was OK - the RCD/trips were apparently very sensitive. Apart from some washing up liquid, there was nothing in the way of dishwasher tablets or toiletries provided. Having paid close to a thousand pounds for the week for a one bedroom cottage, we really don't feel we got value for money. We didn't feel it was a nice place to come home to. Fortunately the weather was good and we were able to go out every day.

The cottage is very damp, the TV didn't work properly, the electricity went off during a downpour and there is an overriding air of neglect, both of the cottage and the Old Vicarage.
