    milk,scones & jam or local biscuits or cake of some type. We wondered if this was because the cottage is being sold? The description "some low lintels" should perhaps say "mostly low lintels" as anyone over 5 feet 7 inches could bang their heads as both my husband and son dd on many occasions.

The property

This thatched cottage is situated on the end of a terrace 30 yards from the church and pub in the heart of Hawkchurch.

With traditional features and simple comforts, this is excellent accommodation for touring Devon and Dorset.

From the hall, head through to your cosy sitting room with its traditional open fire and TV.

The kitchen is well equipped to prepare meals to enjoy in the dining room.

Up the steep stairs are your two comfortable bedrooms sharing a bathroom and the downstairs shower room.

The enclosed garden is to one side, next to the fun public playing field, and at the back you have a useful yard with handy utility room.

Wander around the picturesque village where roses grow around the front doors, explore the church, eat at the foodie pub and chat with the friendly locals.

For some great fossil hunting on the Jurassic Coast, head to the sea at Lyme Regis.

Axminster is the proud base of the scrummy River Cottage Café and Forde Abbey House and Gardens transport you to stately home glory.

In a central location for both Devon and Dorset, Windwhistle Cottage is a charming base for admiring this lovely coast and countryside and relaxing in a welcoming village.
