A very conveniently situated cottage to visit Devon Dorset and Somerset. The kitchen is bright and well equipped and we loved the garden by the mill stream. The large lounge was comfortable but rather dark. The TV was great. The master bedroom is enormous and well furnished but my friend found the twin room rather small. The wardrobe is on the landing and it was difficult to open the window. The beds were very comfortable. The neighbor in the Willows was very friendly and gave us good advice on local walks and Axminster.

Miss W,

A luxurious and well equipped property and only a short drive from Lyme Regis!

Mrs D,

A very comfortable and well presented place to stay. Everything we needed for a relaxing holiday.

Mrs T,

Lovely stay at Corncockles Cottage. A real life doll's house was lovely to look out every morning at the river or other cottages. Very well equipped and cosy and beds comfy too. Dorset/Devon is beautiful, we went to Lyme Regis, Axe Valley Wildlife Park, Bridport, West Bay, fossil hunting at Charmouth and beautiful Beer. Cream teas, prawn sandwiches and lovely pub meals made this a much needed change of pace and scenery in a very strange world! Thank you for sharing your beautiful home

Mr W,

We enjoyed the stay. Rooms are big and cosy. Thanks for the stay. Definitely would suggest to come

Mr P,
