  • "A lovely cottage in a great location for visiting the Dorset coast."

    The house was very clean and had everything that we needed. The garden is lovely and would be amazing to sit out in the summer (we visited in February). Really comfy beds too.

  • "A warm, welcoming and cosy cottage in a really well connected area."

    The cottage and garden are very well looked after. The garden has an amazing bbq hut, which we didn't have time to use, but next time... I have only marked down the accuracy of listing because the way garden is photographed and mentioned doesn't fully explain the reality. The garden is separated from the house by the public driveway that gives access to the other houses. While on the surface this doesn't seem an issue, if you have a dog you can't just open a door and let it out into the garden. You need to leave the house, cross the driveway, unlock the gate and then you are in. Unfortunately for us it was pouring with rain, so it just made it a little more of hassle than ideally you would want. Not a deal breaker, just good to be aware.

    Thank you for notifying us, we have amended the marketing to make it clear that the garden is not attached to the property. We hope you enjoyed your stay. The Lyme Bay Team Property Owner

  • "A truly superb, relaxing holiday in an amazing cottage."

    The 'welcome' hamper on the table was a lovely surprise and we enjoyed cooking eggs and bacon in the very well-equipped kitchen. The cottage is well located for Charmouth, Lyme Regis, River Cottage Headquarters and more! Miller's Farm shop is full of great produce, ideal for cooking in the BBQ hut which is another great experience at Barley Cottage.

  • "The property was perfect, the only complaint I have was there are 3 washbowls in the property and not one of the plugs any good, two of them wasn’t working properly and one hadn’t even got a plug at all, just an open drain."

  • "We were happy with the property and it was clean and as described."

    Feedback is only helpful if it can improve others experience, so I will mention the following. We saw a reference by someone else who stayed about a welcome hamper. Just to be sure, we checked with yourselves and had an email back from Michaela-Jayne on 18th April that this was the case "owner does supply a hamper" We appreciate it is at the discretion of the owner but as we arrived late on a Sunday afternoon when shops were shut, we were disappointed at what we found. The hamper consisted of a pint of milk and a lemon drizzle cake. I hope you would agree that this was hardly welcoming. We left all sorts of basics at home like bread and butter etc. It did spoil our first day.

  • "A beautiful holiday cottage, plenty of space and good surroundings."

    There was a fab welcome pack which was a lovely touch. What was so good and helpful was that everything was set up, ready to use (things like bins and lots of spare bin bags, tea, coffee, sugar etc) which made it so easy to just arrive and get cracking, esp with two young children. If you weren't aware, the upstairs bathroom cold tap doesn't work and therefore running a bath for the kids had to be done through the shower (as the hot tap was scolding hot v v quickly), or we used a jug to tip cold into for speed. The BBQ lodge was a lovely alternative place to hang out and the children loved the ducks on the stream. Was a lovely week, a well set up and appointed cottage. Perfect, thank you.

    It's lovely to hear that Barley Cottage met your expectations and you had a fantastic stay. We will look into the issue with the cold tap, so thank you for notifying us. The Lyme Bay Team Property Owner

The property

Barley Cottage is a charming cottage on the outskirts of Axminster, close to Lyme Regis and the Jurassic Coast, and makes an ideal family holiday home for your Devon holiday.

With off-road parking, a beautiful garden, and unique features, this cottage is an ideal location for exploring popular fossil hunting beaches and the South West Coastal Footpath, while also providing all you may need to enjoy your self-catering stay with loved ones.

Inside, the sitting room has an exposed stone fireplace with log burner to curl up in front of while watching the Smart TV, and the kitchen/diner, with its farmhouse décor, is likely to entice the group's chef to whip up a wonderful dinner to enjoy as a family at the dining table.

Outside, the large garden with mature planting and impressive barbecue hut makes the perfect alfresco social place at any time of day.

Back inside, unwind in one of three well-appointed bedrooms; the double and twin are suitable for couples and youngsters, respectively, while the master bedroom, a king-size with an en-suite and a Smart TV, allows you to enjoy a relaxing morning.

Take your four-legged pals for a stroll along the River Axe or visit the charming market town of Axminster.

Stroll through the town learning about its carpet-making history, which is showcased in the town’s heritage centre.

The River Cottage HQ, noted for its TV show and locally produced and showcased food, is a popular eatery in the area, and for those searching for good food in a relaxed and friendly setting, The Tytherleigh Arms is hard to beat.

Only a short drive away lies the seaside resort of Lyme Regis, best known for its family friendly beaches, Cobb Harbour, town museum, and the local aquarium.

Take a trip to nearby Forde Abbey where a leisurely stroll through its award-winning gardens is recommended, while animal lovers should go to the Abbotsbury Swannery, which is home to the world's only managed colony of nesting mute swans.

Whatever the weather, Barley Cottage is the perfect place to stay for your next trip to Devon.
