  • Ms Brown

    “Cottage very well equipped in lovely surroundings.”

    The main disappointment for us, as elderly, was the location. It was too far to drive down single track extremely narrow lanes before reaching wider roads. Hostess very welcoming.

The property

Situated on the outskirts of the market town of Axminster is this well-presented dwelling, Boxkite Cottage.

This romantic retreat is tucked away within eight acres of charming land, ensuring a tranquil setting for a couple looking to escape their daily routines and explore this corner of Devon.

As the evening draws to a close, cosy up on the plush armchairs and tune into the TV, whilst the woodburning-effect fireplace fills the room with a gentle warmth during the chilly winter months.

The interior is completed by a well-presented double bedroom, where you will be delighted by the quality linens, the ample storage and the large window which floods the room with natural light and offers picturesque views of the countryside surroundings to wake up to each morning.

To the outside, you will find an idyllic private garden, where you can your loved one can enjoy a spot of alfresco dining whilst your canine companion stretches his legs on the spacious lawn.

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.
