    “Lovely house, very fully equipped, ...”

    Lovely house, very fully equipped, felt homely, fitted out to a very high standard. Coped with all 5 of us, and two dogs easily. ( and 3 cars). Garden is very attractive and totally dog secure. There is also a field literally yards away which is good for excercising the dogs, no need to go onto main road. This road is a bit noisy in the day, but very quiet at night.

    Lovely house, very fully equipped, felt homely, fitted out to a very high standard. Coped with all 5 of us, and two dogs easily. ( and 3 cars). Garden is very attractive and totally dog secure. There is also a field literally yards away which is good for excercising the dogs, no need to go onto main road. This road is a bit noisy in the day, but very quiet at night. Best to drive into the town as it is down a very steep hill, although my family walked down by going across the field (public right of way) behind the house, but hard to find exit at the bottom! (they luckily found a local to ask). Town is very pleasant, suggest you read the Axminster leaflets on the table before going though! Whole area is lovely, recommend the Seaton tramway, but best to go to Colyton to catch it, as opposed to its main starting point in Seaton. Best beaches (all except Lyme Regis are stone) to take a dog on is at the east end of Lyme Regis esplanade (crossing over from the square), or Beer beach left hand side. Charmouth and Seatown best for fossil hunting (as per the recent BBC tv series which was filmed along this stretch of Dorset). Plenty of thatched pubs close by, although very busy in August and some quite pricey.

The property

A grand detached cottage positioned in the very heart of Axminster town.

Resting on a bustling main road it offers easy access to all the local amenities whilst providing scenic countryside walks just around the corner.

The property is exceptionally spacious with classic period features such as the decorative Axminster carpet laid down throughout and the high ceilings.

Step through the delightful entrance hall and through to the beautiful dining room where you will be greeted by regency furniture and an attractive inglenook fireplace with charming exposed brick work, adding to the character of the property.

The traditional theme is carried through the rooms and upstairs to three enchanting bedrooms, one of which looks out over the thriving main street.

From the beautiful bay windows to the elegant chandeliers on the ceilings, this cottage boasts a stylish, high quality finish to delight any visitor.

The well appointed kitchen presents lovely cream units and deluxe fixtures, ideal for preparing your home cooked meals for a sociable occasion in the dining room.

Alternatively, sit in the conservatory, which draws in lots of light through the broad glass windows, and enjoy the lovely garden views from here, or better still, head on outside, feel the grass beneath your feet and wallow in the abundance of plants and flowers, taking in the fresh atmosphere.

This stunning cottage is set in a lovely location for walks with access to the fields, along the river and in the lowland nearby.

Trinity Hill Forest is an idyllic setting with its ancient woodland and elegant wildlife.

Lyme Regis is also another attraction not to be missed, nicknamed 'The Pearl of Dorset', it is noted for its fossils found on the beach and cliffs, the harbour wall known as 'The Cobb' which is featured in Jane Austen's 'Persuasion' and the newly restored Town Mill, a watermill which dates back to 1340 powered by the River Lym.

Cowslip House is the ideal cottage to base your family holiday in a beautiful part of Devon.

About the location

AXMINSTER

Wadbrook 3 miles; Charmouth 6 miles; Lyme Regis 6 miles; Chard 7 miles; Seaton 10 miles; West Bay 14 miles Taunton 24 miles.

The lovely market town of Axminster has been made famous by the well-known organic shop and canteen in the area, which were introduced by TV presenter Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall. Nestled in outstanding peaceful countryside, Axminster is certainly a place to relax and unwind. Famous for its carpets, which are often likened to Turkish examples, it is one of Devon’s prettiest smaller towns. Situated on the River Axe and within easy reach of both the West Dorset and East Devon Jurassic Coast, Axminster has many attractions, including plenty of privately owned shops, a weekly market and excellent old inns, with one dating back 100 years with its own resident ghost! With beautiful views on offer and the National Trust properties of Shute Barton and Loughwood Meeting House close by, Axminster is a must to visit.
