This fantastic 17th century farmhouse is set in a beautiful rural setting in Dorset, yet only a short drive to the coast, making it a perfect holiday retreat for all the family.

A private drive leads you to the house which is surrounded by large lawns on two sides, offering plenty of room for children to play and let off steam. This delightful farmhouse has been sympathetically renovated whilst keeping much of its original charm and character including flagstone floors and inglenook fireplaces. Situated on the border of Dorset and Devon, it is ideally situated just a few miles from the picturesque seaside town of Charmouth. You will have easy access to Jurassic Coast and can enjoy 250 miles or more of coastal and rural walks. The charming historic town of Lyme Regis is nearby, with its famous Cobb harbour, bright boats, narrow streets, selection of shops, inns, restaurants, cafes, and a glorious sandy beach which is perfect for children and adults alike. There are many other local attractions including Pecorama, Seaton Tramway, Crealy, Bicton Park, The Donkey Sanctuary, Burrows Farm Gardens, River Cottage HQ and many National Trust properties.

Heading inside this picturesque property, you will find the charming and welcoming lounge which is accessed via the flagstone hallway via two steps up and has a cosy wood burner, as well as a TV with DVD and a selection of books to browse, making a perfect area to relax with family and friends. From the hallway, two steps lead down to the charming traditional dining room, with a full-size dining table and large inglenook fireplace with large wood burner. The elegantly designed kitchen is well-equipped with integrated oven and hob, double wall mounted electric oven, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and a useful breakfast bar. Exploring further, you will also find a useful utility room with a sink, washing machine, tumble dryer and door leading outside to the garden and parking area. Also on the ground floor is a spacious twin bedroom with a seating area set within the original inglenook fireplace. A separate shower room with WC can be found just off the utility room and completes the ground floor. Going upstairs to the first floor you will find three further spacious bedrooms which have lovely views over the garden. Firstly, there is a Master double with a super-king-size bed complete with an en-suite shower room and WC, a pretty double room with a king-size bed and a further twin room. Also on the first floor is the bathroom which has a bath and WC.

A lovely cottage with excellent furnishings and equipment, ideal for large family breaks.

This is a well equipped house, its large enough for people to have space and also enjoy time together. Lovely location, quiet, lots of wildlife, pheasants, bats, deer. The coast is 10 minutes away with fossils to be found and great walks eg Golden Cap. An achievement to walk up this one.

Loved the house and surroundings. Very comfortable and quirky. Loved the window seat in the dining room a brilliant place to sit with a book. 3 generations enjoyed staying here and had a wonderful holiday. Would definitely return.

The farmhouse is an idyllic country stay, which enables you to relax and truly escape. Its location means that its quiet, but remote if you want to pop out and walk for a morning paper. However, Axminster is well equipped with a couple of supermarkets and is a ten minute drive. This did not bother us. For those who like to self cater, just be prepaRead morered to be organised when you are out and about or bring essentials in advance. However, Lyme Regis and Charmluth are only 3.5 miles away. Hide

This farmhouse is a good place to stay. Quietly situated in a convenient position for the Jurassic Coast and its charms, it is a spacious house and generally comfortable apart from one or two of the beds. There had been less attention paid than we would have hoped to hygienic/cleanliness details, especially with some of the crockery, but facilitiesRead more were pretty good. Wi-fi is no more than serviceable at best. Hide

A good holiday in the period Farmhouse. Tastefully decorated and very spacious and in a rural retreat but close to the coast in Lyme Regis and Axminster town (shops) 3.5 miles. Disappointing features were cleanliness (satisfactory), hand over time of 4.00 pm and very slow internet.

Just returned from a lovely break at the Farmhouse, Charmouth. Large old house with plenty of space and a good size patio and garden. The house is extremely well equipt, especially the kitchen. Very large table that we could easily sit around for meals and games.

It was lovely to see the whisteria come into full blook while we were there. Hide

Wow were our first words as we entered the cottage. Through the week we found the sink in the entrance hall invaluable. We loved sitting round the large dining table where our two families enjoyed sharing meals and playing board and card games together. Great having a wood burner. The kitchen had everything we needed. We couldnt fault it.

A nice house in a beautiful location. Plenty of wood for log fires which was a bonus and the house as very warm but you do have to pay extra for heating... Good value for money, and nice for a cheap and easy family getaway!
