  • “Lovely place to stay.”

    A period house with lots of features. Plenty of space & a pretty garden. Good location, within a short drive to the beaches, gardens and places to eat. Would definitely recommend.

About 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


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.
