This holiday property is nestled in the unspoilt market town of Axminster. Surrounded by beautiful countryside, Fairacre is the perfect retreat for outdoor enthusiasts.

Fairacre is situated in Axminster, which is an unspoilt Devon market town that is surrounded by stunning countryside and filled with charm and character. Situated on the River Axe, the attractive, ancient market town of Axminster lies in the beautiful Axe Valley, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, which boasts quaint villages and unspoilt countryside. This property is nestled near to the Devon and Dorset borders and just a few miles from Lyme Regis.
This spacious two bedroomed, single-storey property has been decorated and furnished to a very good standard, with a private garden area that is perfect for a barbecue. Situated in a lovely position, just a few miles away from the picturesque seaside resort of Lyme Regis and the famous World Jurassic Coast, this well-equipped property, a wing of the owners’ home, offers a great location to explore west Dorset and east Devon.
Within easy driving distance, enjoy Lyme Regis with all its quaint shops, wonderful scenic harbour and Cobb, or the bustling town of Axminster. Celebrity chef and TV presenter Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall has his very first River Cottage Canteen and Deli (an organic produce shop/market and canteen) and he also has his River Cottage head quarters in the nearby Axe Valley.
There are many places to visit close by, including many National Trust properties. It is within an ideal spot for walking, fishing, cycling and birdwatching, or to simply come and relax in the peaceful Devon countryside. Further afield, visit Beer, Branscombe, Seaton, West Bay (the scene of the TV series ’Broadchurch’), Bridport, and further onto Abbotsbury, Weymouth and Portland. There is much to do, including superb coastal and country walking, and village pubs for wining and dining. Most famous for its carpets, the original Axminster factory was opened in 1755 by Thomas Whitty and authentic British "Axminsters" are still made in the town by Axminster Carpets. Beach 4 miles. Shop, pub and restaurant 150 yards.

    Lovely little cottage. Enclosed garden was ideal for the dog and for a quiet read with a cup of coffee. We nearly missed the entrance but the directions were clear so with a little care we managed to get into the premises. The owner was a lovely welcoming young woman who left you to enjoy your holiday but was there when/if needed, and her two border collies gave you a lovely warm welcome.
