Lovely homely cottage near River Cottage HQ for fab cookery courses and a 3 minute walk to the River Cottage Canteen in Axminster and 8 minute walk from train station. If you plan to visit River Cottage or the beach a car is needed if you don't plan to take a taxi.

The space

A lovely cosy home designed to be stylish and comfortable.

Guest access

Wifi. DVD collection. Lots of local walks. 10 minute drive to River Cottage Headquarters or to Lyme Regis. Loads of other coastal towns and gorgeous coastal walks. I have a guest book in the cottage with suggestions on walks, restaurants, markets and the like. Free street parking but please DON'T park in the layby directly across the street from the cottage, that building owner has towed people before! 10 min walk from Axminster train station.

Interaction with guests

Im available on my mobile anytime (within reason). Text is best if you need help with anything.

Other things to note

One guest had a hard time finding the key box address. It is located at the end of Duke's Way, if you head relatively straight on Duke's Way to the end you will essentially run right into #112. it is a yellow house.

These are questions I've been asked in the past.
Are towels and bedding included? Yes
Is there an iron and ironing board? Yes
Is there a hairdryer? Yes

Directions to the house will be shared once first payment is made along with key pickup instructions.

This is a really lovely cottage - extremely comfortable and well equipped. Both bedrooms are very comfortable and the whole cottage was cosy and immaculately clean. The kitchen is fantastic - really well equipped (much better than some rental properties) we enjoyed cooking with some of the lovely local produce! Kristin was a great host - we were in contact with her on the first day and she was quick to respond to help us with any queries. Would definitely stay again and recommend!

A very special place, cosy and comfortable for 4 addults. Everything were clean and we had what we needed and more. Axminster is a nice little town and everything (pub, restaurant, cafe, health store, food store,...) only a short footwalk away. There are plenty things to do and see in the area around Axminster (Jurassic Coast, Lyme Regis, Honiton, Dunkey Sanctuary,...) & Kristin made a very helpful collection of their favorite things to do. We would like to come again.

A lovely quiet and neat place to stay (with the exception of some drunk lady banging on the door at midnight, but not Kristen's fault).

Great flat in even greater location. Plenty within a short walk (variety of restaurants, cafes, markets, sites in the village center). We came to visit the coast in Charmouth, which is 10min by car away. We were happy to spend an equal amount of time walking around Axminster from this great location.

Good location for this house. Easy to go to the différent beaches (Dorset/Devon). The house is very cosy and very decorated. Also a good opportunity to have lunch or diner at River Cottage which is 5 minutes walk.

This is an excellent place to stay and everything you need is provided. The furniture is comfy and the kitchen is well stocked. TV and Wifi work well. House was clean and tidy. It is a good location regarding the distance to Lyme Regis, Beer, Seaton, Exmouth, Sidmouth etc. However, you can also walk into Axminster for their restaurants and shops. The only negative is the fact that there is so little parking available that the car can end up being a long way from the house. We had a 15 minute drive on the first night trying to find a parking space!!
