    About this property

    Golf and fishing are available nearby, as well as the coast at Lyme Regis and Charmouth.
    Ideal touring base. These three holiday cottages are beautifully located in the peaceful Axe Valley where Devon, Dorset and Somerset meet. They have been sympathetically converted retaining character and charm to give spacious, comfortable and well-equipped accommodation. All cottages are single storey with easy wheelchair access, The Byre (ref 16018) and The Shippen (ref 16019) are both semi-detached and The Barn (ref 25497) is detached. An abundance of opportunities exist for walking, cycling, (nearby cycle path which is being extended from time to time), golf as well as fishing on the Nature Reserve Reservoir at Chard. Many local places of interest including the pretty, historic, carpet towns of Axminster and Chard, both with indoor swimming pools, P.O. stores, traditional inns and restaurants all to hand along with several quaint villages. Honiton, Forde Abbey, Cricket St Thomas, Hornsbury Mill, several NT properties and the beaches and attractions of Lyme Regis and Charmouth - part of the superb World Heritage Jurassic Coastline, all waiting to be explored. Other resorts include West Bay, with its harbour, and Seaton, which has its own tramway ride along the Axe Estuary, famous for its bird life, to Colyton.

    "A lovely quiet hideaway right on the Dorset and Devon border. Great place to be based to then visit other places. Warm, clean and cosy."
    Elizabeth ‐ 14 Oct 2018
    "We loved the Barn and its situation. However, our stay coincided with major works on the local railway line. The works took place all day and all night and our sleep was severely disrupted because the spoil from the works was dumped on the field adjacent to the farm. The farm owners must have known that this would happen. We also found it difficult to negotiate the local lanes because of very heavy plant using the same roads.Had we been advised that these works were taking place at the time we wished to stay, we would most definitely not have booked the Barn. We feel strongly that the Barn should not have been rented out to anyone during the period of these works."

    "Great location. Easy to find. Well thought out accommodation and very friendly host. Would definitely recommend."
    Colum ‐ 1 Sep 2018
    "Comfortable and clean, we enjoyed our stay. 7 nights with our boys 3 and 5. No to very weak WiFi but didn't miss it and easy to get to the coast- Lyme Regis or Charmouth in 15mins, 40 mins to Exmouth. We also did a day in Dorchester c.a 1hr drive. We would stay again."

    "Poorly presented not value for money. Owners do not make an effort to sweep patio, put flowers on patio to make a difficult area better. This is the worst accommodation we have experienced to date."

    "nice place and people."

    "Fantastic cottage, home from home."
    Diane ‐ 28 Apr 2018
    "We had a fantastic week in The Barn. Rita had provided us with milk and biscuits and there were flowers to welcome us as well. The accommodation was lovely with absolutely everything we could need - the shower in the ensuite was brilliant, the beds were comfortable and the kitchen was well equipped. The location is peaceful and out of the way but we were lucky with the weather and made trips to different places every day after greeting the herd in the barn behind us! We are now thinking about returning with our grandchildren!"

    "Excellent cottage, well-equipped & peaceful location."
