About the property

Farmhouse in Monkton Wyld, Nr. Lyme Regis, Dorset, England

Genuine 17C Farmhouse, 3 miles from World Heritage Jurassic Coast and sandy beaches. All the charm of an original house with 21C comforts and convenience. Spacious Rooms with all the comforts of home. Our traditional farmhouse combines quality and style with luxury furnishings and those little comforting touches. The new kitchen conveniently leads through to the dining room which, with a large wood burner, has all you need for great dinners and memorable moments. Set in the heart of Monkton Wyld, you are in the country, but four miles from the sea. Our Farmhouse is 2.9 miles drive from River Cottage HQ Park Farm and 3.2 miles drive from The River Cottage Canteen and local produce store which is located in the centre of Axminster, at Trinity Square. It’s a superb place where you can taste and buy the best West Country produce. A short drive away is the wonderful beach towns of Lyme Regis and Charmouth which are famous for its fossils, wonderful shops and beautiful walks.

About Joanna Kewley

Monkton Wyld Farmhouse has been part of the Kewley family now for 3 generations. Until recent times we lived and brought up our family in the house. With the children now scattered throughout the world we decided that others would enjoy its unique and genuine charm. We have a wealth of local knowledge and as we live close by can always offer suggestions to enhance your visit to West Dorset.

Joanna Kewley purchased this farmhouse in 1949

Why Joanna Kewley chose East Devon

Our 120 acre farm is now farmed by our neighbour. He puts most of his young cattle on the surrounding fields and Legend (our daughters old pony) still grazes the paddocks adjoining the drive. We consider we know every inch of the local woods, heathland and cliff top walks and a sound knowledge built up over many years of local hostelries.

Lyme Regis and Charmouth are both only 3 miles away, the former is a bustling seaside town, which fortunately escaped the building ravages of earlier decades, and Charmouth beach is one of the best in this area.

You can walk up Pilsdon Pen and have this ancient hilltop fort probably all to yourself, step outside the door into the beach woods or join in the bustle of Lyme R

What makes this farmhouse unique

We are fortunate in that we have Exeter airport only 30 minutes away and Bristol, Bournemouth and Southampton airports all about l hour by car. The Waterloo (London) railway line stops at Axminster which is only 3 miles away.

If you have any queries - simply ask! We can usually answer most questions and if we don't know we will definitely know someone who does.

Deer regularly graze on the front lawn in the early mornings. We have many buzzards and owls living in the nearby woods.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a most wonderful stay at Monkton Wyld. Perfect location and the house was more like a home than a holiday let. So nicely furnished and the best equipped kitchen I have ever stayed in. The surrounding area had sandy beaches and lovely countryside.

When we arrived at the house we all felt instantly at home the feeling as you walk in was one of total ease. Everything was very clean and tidy, the house provided us with everything we needed from the excellent well stocked kitchen, to the soft and comfortable beds. The owners have provided a home from home experience. We made use of the log fire which added to the warm welcoming feeling of the house. Where the house is situated is so quite and peaceful and very relaxing, I've not felt that relaxed on holiday in a long time. The bedrooms are a wonderful size and the beds very comfortable, the master bedroom with en-suite was amazing, such a comfortable bed and with fantastic view, from the window across the countryside. I would highly recommend this holiday let to anyone at any time of year as you will truly feel at home, and very welcomed.
