Cider House is a paradise for families! Relax outside and enjoy the beautiful views whilst the children play in the fantastic playground.

In a stunning location, at the head of a valley, with country views and only 5 miles from Lyme Regis and the famous World Heritage Jurassic Coast, these 15th-century Grade II listed, south facing, traditional stone built cottages make excellent holiday accommodation to relax and unwind in. With flagstone floors, beams and inglenook fireplace, this spacious period cottage is charming. Outside one can enjoy the picturesque views of fields and woodland, and children can play in the adventure playground. This non-working farm is home to an abundance of wildlife including deer, badgers, foxes and many birds. Horse riding is available locally at the neighbouring property, charges do apply.
There are many seaside resorts to visit: Charmouth, Eype, Beer, Seatown, Branscombe, Sidmouth, and many attractions to take in such as Forde Abbey and Gardens, Broadwindsor Craft Centre, Pecorama, Crealey Adventure Park, Abbotsbury Swannery with Sub Tropical Gardens and much more, or maybe a jaunt into the cathedral city of Exeter. Celebrity chef and TV presenter Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall has his first River Cottage Canteen and Deli (an organic produce shop/market and canteen) at the nearby market town of Axminster, 3 miles away. There are water activities such as boat trips, fishing, swimming, diving, sailing and wind surfing, fossil hunting along the Jurassic Coast and exhilarating walks along the coastal paths with its beautiful scenery, particularly from the top of Golden Cap with its commanding views over Lyme Bay from Portland to Torquay. Golf nearby. Shop and village pub 1 mile, country hotel/restaurant ½ mile.

    Almost impossible to fault the accommodation and welcome. Rural site beautiful, but narrow, twisty, high-sided lanes make walking with the kids a nervy experience. However, if you're happy using the car to go out every time, great food, beaches, walks and shopping all within 20 minute drive. Thoroughly recommended, and we WILL be going again.

    We enjoyed a great family holiday. We hired both cottages and so there were eight of us in all including Grandma and Grandad (us) and our two sons, two daughters-in-law and our two grandsons aged 2 and 3. We enjoyed the beach at Charmouth, the Seaton tram, Pecorama, Forde Abbey, Paignton Zoo and a river cruise at Exmouth. The cottage was large enough for us all to eat together and socialise in the evenings. Rob made us feel at home and we enjoyed the wine and cream tea that he and Clare provided for us. We had fantastic weather!
