Fantastic cottage

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful cottage in lovely location. Log fire was a bonus. We had the best Sunday lunch at the Tuckers arms but make sure you book.

A Beautiful Location

  • 5 of 5

Such a nice house in a really good location. Whilst it's only five minutes back onto the main road you feel truly isolated in a beautiful spot in the countryside.

The local pub is within walking distance and Axminster, with all the shops you could need is less than 15 mins away.

The house itself is furnished to a high standard and has a cosy feel with log-burners in two of the downstairs rooms.

The most perfect place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is simply idyllic in every way. Inside it is quality throughout and incredibly cosy (which we needed as the temperature fell to -7 outside!) We made good use of the wood burners in the evenings. The dogs loved the garden and the walks through the fields just up the road. Twice we walked to The Tuckers Arms for lunch (Sunday Lunch is a must!) and twice we wobbled back. We re-visited Lyme Regis that we love and The Anchor at Seatown. Definitely booking again for November 2017 and hopefully before that too. Highly recommended.

One of the best holidays in UK

  • 5 of 5

We as a family of 5 had one of the best weeks holiday in such a lovely location with perfect cottage for our needs. We were fortunate to have brilliant weather and made use of the BBQ facilities nearly everyday in the spacious grounds. If you are animal lovers bringing dogs is not a problem. There are lots of cows and sheep on occasions the sheep were about 20 feet away from the Kitchen window. Surrounding areas had some of the most breath taking views. We visited many local beaches which had their own characteristics. From Cliff Walks, Fossil Hunting, Sands of Lyme Regis and the front of Seaton which could have been anywhere abroad. I would advise a stay at The Waterfall Cottage.

The owners were also very supportive anything you needed they responded instantly which was reassuring.

We would have no second thoughts about staying there again. It was a struggle to get the wife and children to leave!!!

Beautiful cottage in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Waterfall Cottage has been beautifully restored and is well equipped, spacious and very comfortable. The large garden and the games room was an added bonus. Tracey the owner was very helpfully and informative prior and during our week's stay at the cottage. The neighbors are very friendly and the local pub (10 minutes walk) is great. Could not fault the cottage / our stay in any way. We will definitely recommend to others. Thank you.

Beautiful and comfortable cottage in idyllic setting

  • 5 of 5

Waterfall cottage is a lovely place to spend a holiday, especially with kids. Our children (8 & 10) loved the trampoline, the huge garden (for football), the games room with table football and PlayStation for rainy days (though we only had one). Well placed for Lyme Regis, Beer, Branscombe and not forgetting the legendary Stockland fair eggathon...

Complete Meats in both Axminster and Honiton again sell all produce from local farms and both towns also have great fishmongers.
