  • Characterful cottage superbly styled with original exposed beams and beautiful furnishings
  • Light and spacious accommodation arranged on one floor with enclosed sun-trap patio
  • Perfectly placed for exploring Devon’s border, with both Dorset and Somerset nearby
Property code: 82604

This beautiful cottage nestles in a secluded setting in the 5-acre grounds of the owner’s home, and has been lovingly fitted and furnished to provide a romantic retreat for two.

Tucked between Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) with the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site nearby, this home is perfect for a pair of adventurers. Wake to far-reaching valley views which stretch far and wide across the East Devon countryside and settle with a cup of coffee beneath the characterful vaulted ceiling in the spacious, open-plan living area.

Sitting in 5 acres of land, this single-storey home boasts a wonderfully tranquil position which is complemented by the ocean hues and characterful features throughout. Bright and breezy with natural light flooding inside through French doors, the heart of the home is a peaceful haven in which to relax and welcomes you home after adventurous days. The ceiling is lined with exposed beams from the original orchard house and the charm continues outside where the patio is bordered by a pretty fence to ensure the neighbouring sheep give you some privacy.

Leave the car behind and lace up your walking boots for a romantic stroll along the local footpaths. Take in the fabulous views before heading to Axminster (3.5 miles) to whet your appetite at renowned eateries or pick up local goods for dinner. After days of inland adventures exploring the Blackdown Hills and East Devon AONBs, take a trip to the coast and visit the bustling hub of Lyme Regis for beach days, fossil hunting and breathtaking scenery along the South West Coast Path.

A lovely cottage in East Devon, near the borders of Somerset and Dorset. Spacy with good beds, a nice warm shower and well-equipped kitchen. Quiet, but easy to reach without narrow lanes. WiFi was all right. We have had a great holiday!

This Cottage has obviously been well planned and seriously thought out. Everything is first class, clean, comfortable, good quality fixtures, fittings and furnishings. Even vases of fresh wild flowers! Sun trap patio, parking outside the door, what more could you want? One of the best places that weve ever stayed at and we get around quite a bit!
