In a stunning location, at the head of a valley, with country views and less than 5 miles from Lyme Regis and the world famous Jurassic Coast, these 15th-century Grade II listed, traditional stone built cottages make excellent holiday accommodation to relax and enjoy the peace and tranquillity. 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, owls and even buzzards! Sheep and lambs graze and play in the adjoining fields. Horse riding is available locally at the neighbouring property, charges do apply.
There are many seaside resorts to visit: Lyme Regis, Charmouth, West Bay, Weymouth, Beer, Branscombe, Sidmouth, Exmouth and many more attractions including Crealy Adventure Park, GoApe Forest Adventure, Pecorama, Beer Quarry Caves, Seaton Tramway or maybe a jaunt to the 12th century city of Exeter. Golf nearby. Many local on-site footpaths and country walks to explore. A perfectly situated rural retreat yet within easy driving distance to discover the three counties of Dorset, Devon and Somerset plus the Jurassic coastline. Village shop and pub 1 mile, country hotel/restaurant ½ mile.

Properties Cider Cottage (DXL) and Cider House (DXM) can be booked together to accommodate up to 12 guests.

Really nice location and excellently kitted out. Rob, the owner, was most welcoming and friendly. Would go back if revisiting the area

Very comfortable stay. Nice touch of cream tea provided on arrival. Quiet rural location but close to amenities. We were attending a wedding at River Cottage so location ideal as only a 10 minute drive away. Our toddler grandson really enjoyed the playground and outside toys. Host very helpful. Would recommend a stay here.

A superb cottage on a former farm, adjacent fields are used for sheep and horses but no normal working farm traffic or associated problems. The facilities are excellent with a large kitchen, complete with dish washer, cooker, freezers, microwave and a full size kitchen table seating 6 people. The very minor downsides are down to personal taste as apposed to being defects and are a rather low and soft lounge suite ( I have back problems and prefer a more upright firm support),, and the fact that it is deep in the countryside on narrow roads with indifferent signage often covered by foliage. A small price to pay for an otherwise perfect setting and cottage. Our host was most accommodating and helpful. Thanks for a perfect holiday. Book with confidence
