Close to the borders of Devon, Somerset and Dorset, just outside the town of Axminster, this delightful property sleeps four guests and is great for a family. Whether you prefer exploring the countryside on foot, or visiting popular tourist attractions, you’ll be within easy reach of a wide range of things to do.

Our stay in The Dairy was lovely. Beautiful location overlooking the countryside.

The cottage has been converted very well, is comfortable, and well kitted out. It is in an ideal spot to explore the Devon and Dorset coast. I recommend eating at the Tytherleigh Arms, which was one of the best meals I've had in a very long time. The only drawback is its proximity to the A35 and the accompanying road noise is constant.

Noise from the A35 is at its greatest during the hours when most holidaymakers are out and about. It reduces very significantly from early evening and is barely noticeable early morning when inside. To balance this, the proximity to the A35 is convenient and the traffic to the property from the A358 and along the farm lane is infrequent and there aRead morere passing places. Footpaths and country lane walks easily accessible. Easy parking and unloading to ground floor bedrooms very convenient. Hide

Location

Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

Although it's just three hours from London and the South East, Dorset feels like a world away from the hubbub of the city. This gem of a county offers the very best of rural England: magnificent coastal scenery, vast sandy beaches, rolling hills, charming villages, country pubs, stately homes and medieval castles.

Take time to explore the dramatic and diverse coastline. Stretching 95 miles from East Devon to Poole, the Jurassic Coast has been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO and is the only natural phenomenon in England to achieve this status. Here, visitors can uncover Earth's fascinating history whilst enjoying unspoilt views over superb beaches, many of which welcome canine companions too. From the iconic rural rock arch at Durdle Door to the endless sandy expanses of Studland, Dorset has it all.

Why not head to Lyme Regis, classified as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty? Like much of West Dorset, it has an old-world ambience and offers excellent fossil hunting opportunities. Or head east to discover the beauty of Lulworth and the vibrant seaside resort of Swanage.

Steeped in history and with a certain quintessential charm, Dorset's glorious countryside is peppered with small towns and villages which are well worth a visit. Many are graced with fine buildings, immortalised in the books of Thomas Hardy, a Dorset-born novelist and poet. For more energetic visitors, footpaths and cycleways reveal the county's hidden secrets with the coast always close at hand for those who love the water.
