Absolutely beautiful cottage and had everything we needed!! The garden was absolutely fantastic and the children would of played all day if we had let them! The extra baby equipment like the high chairs and travel cots was extremely appreciated!! Only reason I didnt give full stars on cleanliness was we had to re wash a few plates, cups and cutleryRead more as they were very dirty. Would definitely recommend and would love to return one day!

Had an amazing weekend away, in a lovely cottage. Great location near Axminster and within a short drive to Lyme Regis and other attractions. This was the most well equipped property we've ever stayed at, and everything is good quality. The owners have obviously not scrimped when fitting out the cottage. Owners were easy to contact.

Very cosy and warm with the most comfortable mattresses - even in the travel cot. Thanks for all the great attention to detail. It didn't go unnoticed.
