Property code: 83915

A wonderful barn conversion, making the perfect couples retreat to explore the three counties of Devon, Somerset and Dorset.

Nestled on the cusp of beautiful Axminster, this property is a delightful retreat for couples. Beneath the wooden exterior is a cosy base for your adventures, whether you are venturing across the rugged countryside or heading to the coast for a day at the beach. Axminster is best known for carpets and celebrity chefs, so retail therapy enthusiasts and passionate foodies are well catered for.

Forming part of a complex of similar properties, your abode is far removed from its former life as a barn on a working farm. Inside is spacious and practical with a style that combines contemporary comfort with traditional details. High ceilings and cast-iron frames set the scene in the lounge/kitchen/diner, the heart of the home for meals and leisure time. The generous bedroom has a king-size bed for a restful night’s sleep, and there’s an en-suite bathroom complete with a bath and a separate shower for a spot of pampering. Outside, the patio area has seating for al fresco breakfasts and morning coffee in the early sunshine.

You’ll be positioned with handy transport links to Devon, Dorset and Somerset thanks to the proximity of the A35, so you’ll be spoilt for choice of whether to head to the coast or navigate the countryside. Lyme Regis, 4.5 miles away, is famous for its bustling town with its pebble-strewn beach, independent cafes and variety of amusements including art galleries and museums. Charmouth, 4.5 miles away, is arguably one of the best sites for fossil hunting, but for a day out with a difference, why not choose Seaton, 8 miles away? Seaton is a hub of things to do and there’s a tramway for rail enthusiasts.

Coombe Bank farm is a good central location to travel around from, good access to the main roads to get to wherever you want to see. Recommend Bridport, Lyme Regis, Sidmouth for the shops and the donkey sanctuary, also the Dart Valley Railway. Petrol shortage restricted our exploring plans.

The stables were nicely converted and provided a good base for both Dorset and Devon.

A lovely place to stay, the main constructive feedback would 'Dog Friendliness' there was no where for her to 'do her 'business' without an extensive walk. Also a car is a must as there are no local facilities without a couple of miles walk. However the property was first class, extremely clean, & if the above small hurdles are not a major issue, wRead moreould highly recommend. We hardly had any contact with the owners, but what we had was friendly & if required was just a text message away. Thank you. Hide

Location

Map
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.
