Property code: 79208

Refurbished in 2020, this beautifully restored barn combines country style with contemporary features. With outstanding views over rolling countryside, this is the ideal base for a relaxing break

Choose beautiful Axminster as the destination for your family getaway and stay in this impressive property that has ample room for your party of four. Ideal for couples, families or friends catching up, you’ll soon be swapping the stresses of modern life for BBQ suppers with a view and days exploring the glorious coast and countryside.

Stylish and comfortable with quirky extra touches, this stone property is a sanctuary after a busy day exploring the countryside. Stone walls, wooden flooring and surprisingly contemporary fixtures and fittings set the scene in the open-plan living space, and the crackling wood burner is a bonus on chilly evenings. Make yourself a coffee using the Nespresso coffee machine and admire the views from the patio doors, perhaps even descending the steps to stroll around the shared garden. There are two bedrooms and a bathroom for restful evenings. To really unwind, why not treat yourself and book the on-site beautician/masseuse for a spot of pampering.

Best known for celebrity chefs, carpets and stunning countryside, Axminster is a favourite for foodies and outdoor enthusiasts alike. The town itself is 1.5 miles away, but you’ll find it easy to access a plethora of walks directly from your doorstep throughout ancient woodland and along winding river trails. Spot curlews and oystercatchers from the estuary, following the East Devon Way footpath or cycling along the Buzzard Route, both of which can be joined on the outskirts of town. For children, the Axe Valley Wildlife Park is a treat 2.5 miles away, promising a fun day out for all the family.

We loved every minute of our stay in Sundowner. Beautifully furnished and equipped, with the most amazing sunsets over the beautiful Devon countryside. Such an aptly named property. The position of the Sundowner is perfect to explore both counties of Devon and Dorset which are only a few miles from each other. The owners were really friendly, neverRead more intrusive and left generous welcome gifts, which we greatly appreciated. We will definitely be returning Hide

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.
