We had a lovely holiday in this super home from home! Very well equipped, the owners have thought of just about everything! The cottage was so comfortable with top quality furnishings throughout. The cottage is set in peaceful surroundings, but only minutes by car to local shops! Would highly recommend.

Fantastic secluded accommodation close to Axminster (10-15 min walk away) with superb gardens for the kids to play in. The cottage is maintained to a very high standard and was spotless for our planned arrival.

A lovely cottage with everything you need for a home from home with fantastic power showers. Be warned however, as an old place it is very creaky and upstairs not at all soundproof. The latch doors meant if anyone went out of their bedroom we all knew - so not ideal if you have small kids who get up early!

We were a group of friends coming from different directions for a birthday treat. Locally there are some great places to visit, and eat, and the cottage is a lovely space to come home to, with comfy beds, a well equipped kitchen, a lovely garden and lots of space to spread out in. Great value in a lovely location, I'd definitely visit again.

Bloomsbury Barn was in peaceful countryside but within a short distance of Axminster town centre. It is also within easy reach of the Jurassic coastal resorts. It was comfortable, warm and well equipped. There is a spacious garden for those with children, and a delightful southern facing patio at the back of the house.
