Take a trip to the charming cobbled streets of Lyme Regis, where you can wander through the galleries and visit the historic Cobb before testing out one of the many cafe’s and eateries. Also, nearby is the seaside village of Beer and towns of Seaton and Sidmouth, or why not explore one of the numerous National Trust properties that are easily accessible by car.  Children will love the numerous beaches along this coast or having fun at the many attractions on offer - Pecorama, Seaton Trams or Dinosaurland Fossil Museum all offer great days out.

Heading upstairs to the first floor you will find a cosy bunk room, suitable for children under 12 years and a pretty twin bedroom. The last bedroom is a double with en-suite shower room with shower and WC. Completing the first floor is the bathroom with shower over bath and WC.

Heading outside from the lounge you will find an enclosed garden with a seating area immediately behind the cottage and charcoal BBQ, this tranquil spot is the ideal place for some rest and relaxation. A large lawn extends from here with glimpses over the Exe Valley from the end. For the younger members of the group there is a tree swing available and plenty of space to run off that extra energy. A short walk from the property brings you to a shared parking area with space for one car.

Lovely cottage, very clean and everything was provided that we needed. It was in a quiet location but was ideally situated to get into Lyme Regis and Seaton (both no more than 10 minutes drive). Or, if you wanted to go further afield it was not far off from the A35. We were very happy with our holiday.

We had a thoroughly enjoyable holiday at Beech Cottage and would definitely recommend & stay there again. The cottage was on a beautifully maintained private Estate & very close to Lyme Regis, other resorts & various attractions - so great location. The cottage was well equipped, roomy & comfortable, however a point to note - there is limited draweRead morer space in both the twin & bunk bedrooms & no wardrobe at all in the bunk bedroom. The property has a large garden - ideal for young children. Hide

Excellent location for trips to local Dorset/Devon sites. Very quiet and peaceful. Cottage is well equiped and everything works. Although the cottage is close to the coast it is virtually impossible to walk to the beach from the estate - many other beaches within a short drive (mostly pebbles).
