    “Fantastic cottage, lovely location.”

    The owner was very friendly but not intrusive. Cottage was spotless. We really enjoyed our stay. Very narrow lanes to the cottage.

The property

This stunning stone-fronted semi-detached cottage is located in the market town of Axminster on the border of Devon.

Overlooking the River Axe, this village is perfect for a tranquil trip with the family surrounded by woodlands and wonderful walking routes.

Once owned by the British Aerospace director, Sir George Stanley White, this cottage is named after the aircraft ‘Britannia’, giving it a historic and quirky sentiment, and something to tell your friends about.

The property has two bedrooms, including one double room with an authentic stone feature wall, and one twin, perfect for the kids.

The sitting room features traditional wooden beams accompanied by stone walls and beautiful wooden furnishings, it’s an extremely elegant room perfect for the family to gather and play board games at the end of a busy day exploring the delights that Devon has to offer.

The kitchen/dining area gives off a romantic aura, with a stone wall, rustic wooden seating, and a bright yellow lantern, it feels like you’re sat in a quaint café in Paris, or bring the family together and cook a home-cooked meal to end your day in a relaxing setting before heading to the outside area to watch the stars come out after the eight acres of land on the property.

Explore the private land outside your very own cottage, with acres of gardens and nature to spot, there’s more than enough activity without even leaving the property.

In the summer months, you can enjoy relaxing in your own patio outside with your family or loved ones.

Further afield there’s lots to explore, such as the Blackdown Hills and the Chard Museum, your trip will be both revealing and relaxing, the perfect combination of history and indulgence.

Britannia Cottage is great for a small family or a group of friends who want to spend quality time together relaxing and exploring the lands of Devon and beyond.

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!
