The location of this charming period cottage is superb for those who want somewhere in a quiet, beautiful setting which is only a few minutes’ drive from the seaside town of Lyme Regis.

The cottage is set back from the country lane up a long, private drive shared only with the owners, making it very safe for children and dogs. Your four-legged friends are very welcome and guests can take advantage of some excellent walks in and around Holcombe, including a very popular walk along the River Lim to Lyme Regis. Located in a picturesque valley close to the Devon/Dorset border, this delightful property is the perfect base for touring the region. The Jurassic Coast, a World Heritage Site, is nearby with easy access to coastal walks, beaches and fossil-rich cliffs.

River Cottage HQ is two miles north of the cottage and there are many other local attractions including Beer Caves, Seaton Tramway, Crealy Adventure Park, Bicton Park, Killerton and Knightshayes Court. The nearby town of Axminster has direct train connections to Exeter and London Waterloo.

The cottage itself is a fully self-contained wing of an early Georgian farmhouse with its own entrances, front and rear, and a very private, sunny courtyard at the back where there is garden seating and a barbeque. Inside, the cottage has been tastefully furnished and has a warm, welcoming atmosphere. From the off road parking area, three stone steps lead up to the main entrance which takes you straight into the inviting lounge. Here there is a large inglenook fireplace with a cosy wood burner to snuggle up in front of during the cooler months and a TV/DVD. From the lounge a door takes you through to the kitchen/dining room which is a lovely space for all the family to enjoy light snacks or hearty meals. The kitchen is equipped with an electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer and dishwasher. A washing machine is located in a useful external storage/utility room which is accessed from the private courtyard. Also on the ground floor is a bathroom which a bath, shower attachment and WC.

Lovely cottage. Host were friendly and helpful. Quite location but near enough to Lyme Regis to walk along the river to the town . We very much enjoyed our stay.

A lovely cottage with a great enclosed courtyard which catches the sun and is ideal for family eating as it is adjacent to the kitchen. We all slept well as no light pollution....until the sun crept in ....wonderful.
