  • "Very comfortable, clean and warm and very well equipped."

    Reviewed by Richard5.0Feb 2024

  • "A fully equipped property, that was furnished to a high standard."

    The accommodation was clean and the provision of milk and a cream tea was very welcome. The only negative was the steep stairs, which is a problem for guests with reduced mobility. We would recommend the property to our friends/family.

The property

Close to local amenities and within reach of the Dorset coastline, Covert Cottage is a lovely semi-detached property ideal for a family looking to explore Axminster and the local Devonshire countryside.

An off-road parking spot makes unpacking convenient, and you will find yourself in a lovely open-pan living area with a light and airy atmosphere created by the large patio windows.

Make the most of the amply-fitted kitchen, cooking a heart-warming meal which can be enjoyed at the dining area, before settling into the sitting area to enjoy a film night, or heading outside in the warmer months to make the most of the sunshine with a glass of your favourite beverage.

Two well-presented bedrooms offer a place to rest your head for the night, including a double with an en-suite shower room and a twin, along with a family bathroom where you can indulge in a soak amongst the bubbles.

The property is within walking distance from train station and town centre of Axminster, where there is a selection of local pubs, eateries, and convenience stores, so why not enjoy a stroll through the local area, browsing what’s on offer, before enjoying a hearty meal?

Axe Valley Wildlife Park is an ideal afternoon spent exploring the wonderful wildlife on offer, and guests can head over to Forde Abbey and Gardens and Coney's Castle for scenic walks and historic sites.

Lyme Regis is within easy reach and is a great seaside town to visit, with incredible beaches, eateries, independent shops selling local produce and a bustling harbour.

The town also offers an aquarium and a selection of museums where you can get to know the Jurassic Coast before setting out to see if you can find any fossils in the cliffs.

Enjoy a game of golf, or a more action-packed afternoon at the Tunnel Tree Tops or bask in the beautiful views of Axmouth to Lyme Regis Undercliffs National Nature Reserve.

All of this and so much more with a stay at Covert Cottage.
