Overview

About the property

Cottage in Axmouth, Nr. Seaton and Lyme Regis, South Devon, Devon, England - Period Cottage In A Picturesque Village Setting With The Convenience Of A Nearby Town

Orchid Cottage is a spacious 3 to 4 bedroom end of terrace property that can comfortably accommodate six people. It is very nicely presented with good quality furnishings and cosy and warm in colder months with modern efficient central heating and good insulation through the majority of the cottage. There is ample parking both on street and an allocated spot. Although recently refurbished, the property dates well back into the 19th Century when it was part of the building that comprised the village post office and stores. Axmouth itself is a picturesque Devon village, full of quaint old thatched cottages, lying next to the River Axe and in close proximity to ancient Axmouth harbour.

Orchid Cottage is deceptively spacious from its street profile. On entering the front door there is a large living room with 4th bedroom/snug room off to one side and a large kitchen/diner in the rear extension. Upstairs, leading from the landing, there are the three bedrooms, a twin and double to the front and the master bedroom with a double bed and the en-suite shower room in the extension to the rear. The cottage is generally warm and cosy due to the thick walls refurbished with dry lining and the efficient and modern LPG central heating that we run during the colder months (approximately September to April weather dependent). This is strictly a no smoking premises. Also we request that outside footwear not be worn inside the cottage so please remember to bring your slippers. Regret no children under 5 years of age. Regret no pets allowed. Please check our own website link personal website {http://orchidcottage.promotemyplace.com) for further information.

Outside: French doors open from the kitchen onto a large landscaped patio area with elegant aluminium table and six chairs. A storage box provides a place for walking boots and extra seating. The back garden is decoratively planted to provide colour and interest throughout the year. A path leads through the back garden to a rear gate providing access through a further communal path shared by two neighbouring properties to the rear allocated parking space. A side gate provides access from the patio past the council bin storage to the street at the front of the cottage. Although the Orchid Cottage garden and patio are not suitable for playing children, fortunately there is a large children's village playing field and playground about 70 meters to the right along quiet Chapel Street as you exit the cottage. The Axmouth Silver Jubilee Recreation Ground is well equipped with modern and well maintained slides, swings and climbing frames with bark cushioning for safety.

Cleaning / Towels / Linen / Maid service: Linen provided and beds made up. Towels provided (one hand and one bathroom per guest), not to be removed from cottage (please bring your own beach towels).

About Agnieszka Rzadzinska-Prosser

The owners of Orchid Cottage, Agnieszka and Haydn, are scientists and amateur fossil hunters. We love to walk the abundant footpaths, watch birds and other wildlife and sample the sights and activities both locally and further afield in the West Country.

Agnieszka Rzadzinska-Prosser purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Agnieszka Rzadzinska-Prosser chose East Devon

We bought Orchid Cottage because we love Dorset and Devon, we love beaches in many shapes and forms, variety of walks, old stately house full of history and knowledge about our past, fossils and the feeling when you find one yourself, great food and most importantly the people. We love to come back over and over again and we would like our guests to fall in love with this region of the country.

What makes this cottage unique

We make great efforts to write our own informal local guides, update them regularly and share them with our guests so they can during short week of their holidays enjoy all the Devon and Dorset localities have to offer. We have decorated and furnished Orchid Cottage to ensure great comfort and true feeling of a holiday home. We closely work with our housekeeper to keep cottage in best possible state of repair and cleanliness. The setting in Axmouth is peaceful and quiet, often the only noise that you hear are the calls pheasants, owls and foxes resonating through the valley. However, it is not isolated in the sense that all the facilities of well-equipped towns are in close proximity and you do not have to travel far to reach major roads for undertaking longer journeys.

Exceeded our expectations

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Orchid Cottage for four nights over the New Year holiday and found it to be extremely comfortable, well fitted, warm and homely, with a beautiful garden and patio area which would be a great asset in the summer months.

The cottage is obviously well loved and cared for by the owners, who we found to be most helpful.

The cottage is situated in a quiet location, but close to all amenities with two pubs within walking distance, both offering good food.

We would have no hesitation in recomending this property

Lovely cottage in perfect village location.

  • 5 of 5

Orchid cottage was exactly as described and made a wonderful base for our holiday. The cottage was very clean and spacious for 4 adults and well equipped with everything needed. The courtyard garden is very lovely and is a real suntrap and very private. The village was lovely with two pubs serving great food, both within a two minute walk.Beer is a lovely pebble beach with a good walk over to Branscombe. Lyme Regis is a 10 minute drive and a fabulous day out. Prompt responses from the owners and lots of advise on things to do in the area. Would definitely recommend and we will be revisting.
