The Old Farmhouse is a light and spacious five-bedroom holiday home dating back to the 15th century, sleeping eight adults comfortably. This beautiful, thatched, Grade II listed cottage has an idyllic country setting with a large garden and two acres of private land. Sitting peacefully within the breathtaking Blackdown Hills ‘Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty’, the property is a delightful rural getaway, providing the perfect base for a large family or a group of friends to explore the enchanting Devon, Somerset and Dorset countryside.
Inside, the cottage boasts a range of social spaces to spend your time together; head into the large cosy living room, sure to be the social hub of your holiday, where you can find a selection of snug seating, a large inglenook fireplace with an electric stove and a flat screen Smart TV with a DVD player. Gather together in the dining room to enjoy a family meal prepared in the amply equipped kitchen and toast to your wonderful retreat. Make the most of warm evenings and dine al fresco in the beautiful large lawned garden where there is plenty of outdoor seating, a BBQ and a fire pit. At the end of a fun-filled day, find your own space to rest in one of the five charming bedrooms with uninterrupted views over the surrounding countryside. The first is located on the ground floor with a super kingsize zip and link bed which can be split into 3ft single beds on request. There is a bathroom located off the hallway on the ground floor which is great for those guests who cannot do stairs. Heading up to the first floor, you will find the other four bedrooms, two doubles, one of which has an en-suite shower room, one kingsize and one with twin beds which can be zipped together to make a super kingsize on request. Three of these bedrooms share the use of the beautiful spacious family bathroom which is fitted with a roll-top bath and walk-in shower so guests can choose between a rejuvenating rinse or an indulgent soak.
The Old Farmhouse is the perfect base for exploring the region, from the Blackdown Hills and woodlands to the cliffs and beaches of the Jurassic Coast. Walkers, hikers, horse riders, cyclists or wild swimmers are all catered for in this beautiful part of the country. The wealth of activities to enjoy includes a host of National Trust properties including Forde Abbey, Barrington Court and Montecute House. For younger visitors, spot wild creatures at the nearby Axe Valley Wildlife Park, have a fun-filled day out at Wildwood Escot, visit the Donkey Sanctuary in Sidmouth or try a trek like no other, walking with friendly llamas and alpacas through the picturesque countryside at nearby Shute. Discover local history at the Axminster Heritage Museum and the Lyme Regis Museum, explore the awe-inspiring landscapes of the National Trust’s Lambert’s Castle or hike through the Blackdown Hills and uncover Castle Neroche fort.
The wonderful beaches of Charmouth, West Bay, Sidmouth, and Branscombe as well as the curved pebble bay and cove at Beer are only a short drive away. At Charmouth, only 25 minutes’ drive away, you can go fossil hunting on the sandy beach or take a stroll along the coastal path to take in the stunning views of this World Heritage Site. Around the bay is Lyme Regis, styled as ‘the Pearl of Dorset’, a charming seaside town with a sandy beach and a range of delightful shops and restaurants. The historic harbour offers sailing, sea kayak hire and boat/fishing trips where you can bring back fresh mackerel for dinner. Experience the south west like never before and escape to the countryside with a truly memorable holiday at The Old Farmhouse. Beach 10½ miles.
