    The cottage could have been lovely. Beautiful gardens and location and nice cottage with walks on door step. Equipment within cottage shoddy, lovely old style building but plastic tray as shelf in bathroom!. DVD player only worked on certain DVD's - needs replacing, they are not expensive these days, TV so small you can hardly see it. Uncomforable beds in twin room. Toilet in twin room extremely slow filling cistern - needs looking at, pretty scaled up. Owners were away but we told the person who was house sitting for them and he called them and they said it is what you would expect in an old cottage. Notes left by the owners were basically saying to try and sort things yourself first before bothering them - we were on holiday! Place could really do with a good clean, lots of cobwebs, carpets a bit grimy, pets are allowed so need doing more often.

The property

Sitting peacefully amongst rolling hills and narrow country lanes overlooking the surrounding Blackdown Hills, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, is pretty Grade II listed which began life in the 14th Century as a Quaker farm and meeting place.

The thatched Devon longhouse is home to the owners and its cleverly converted former barns are now five attractive cottages set within seven acres of lovely grounds and gardens.

Footpaths lead directly from the property through the scenic countryside of the Blackdown Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Quakers is a quaint thatched annexe to the main farmhouse.

Downstairs there is a neat galley kitchen with wood worktop and a tiled floor.

The cosy living room has attractive views across the garden to the countryside beyond and a cast iron electric 'living flame' fire.

Upstairs there are two bedrooms - a double with en-suite shower room and a twin with lovely valley views, stripped pine floors and en-suite bathroom with over bath shower.

The twin beds can be joined to make a super king double on request.

Pretty cottage furnishings complement carefully retained features including, low timber beams and exposed stonework.

The cottage has a small sunny seating area with superb views and guests are welcome to enjoy the beautifully kept communal grounds and BBQ area.

About the location

AXMINSTER

Wadbrook 3 miles; Chard 7 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.
