    “The cottage was lovely and the views were incredible.”

    The owner was on hand whenever we needed them and was very helpful. We hope to return in 2021.

The property

The Shippon is one of two beautiful barn conversions on Wyke Farm, the owner's 17th century, grade II listed farmstead that lies just outside the market town of Axminster, and is surrounded by the glorious rolling countryside of East Devon.

With views that stretch over the Axe Valley, with the popular resort of Lyme Regis on the Dorset Jurassic Coast just 5 miles away, this is a perfect destination for a peaceful and relaxing holiday where you are well positioned to explore the coast and countryside on your doorstep.

Facing out across the countryside, a gravel pathway slopes up from the parking to the patio and gravel garden.

Step inside into the open plan living space with vaulted ceilings, beams and a full length patio doors and windows, this room is bright and welcoming.

A country kitchen sits at the far end of the room and two squashy comfortable sofas are centrally positioned providing the perfect spot for relaxation whilst soaking up the warmth of the fire and taking in the beautiful views through patio doors.

Raised up a level, the dining area allows you to enjoy the full view of this lovely room.

Two steps up from the dining room takes you to a twin room and double room with super-king bed that can be divided into two singles.

There is a family bathroom at this end of the barn.

At the opposite end, three steps lead down to the master double with stable door, TV and en-suite shower room.

Outside, a spacious patio looks out across the rolling countryside of the Axe Valley and is equipped with tables and chairs.

There is a charcoal BBQ available and plenty of parking.

A dog is welcome and there are plenty of countryside walks right on the doorstep, however your pet must be kept under control at all times due to livestock.

Axminster is just 2 miles away where you will find shops for provisions, a number of pubs and good restaurants and the River Cottage Canteen.

River Cottage HQ is popular for weddings and is just outside the town.

Family friendly and dog friendly beaches can be found at Lyme Regis and Charmouth, both close by where are also a number of lovely eateries, cafes and shops.

Enjoy the South West Coast Path and if you are up for a challenge, a walk to the top of the famous Golden Cap, Dorset's heights point where the views are breath taking.

For little ones, the Axe Valley Nature Reserve can be found just outside of Axminster, and the famous Donkey Sanctuary near Sidmouth is a must visit for any age.

The Shippon is a wonderful rural getaway with the coast on the doorstep and perfect at any time of year.

The scenic coastal path offers excellent walking opportunities and spectacular views of the stunning Jurassic coast, whilst the gently shelving sands and sparkling waters of Lyme Bay provide the perfect place in which to relax and unwind. A holiday destination to savour!
