Lea Hill

Sleeps 6 + 2 cots in 2 properties | 7.4 miles NW of Lyme Regis

This is the setting at Lea Hill. The cottages are tucked away behind the main house.

Lea Hill lies on the edge of the pretty east Devon village of Membury. The Jurassic Coast is a short drive away with its chain of attractive fishing villages. Or, just over the border in Dorset, explore the famous Cobb Harbour at Lyme Regis and the dramatic cliffs and coastal paths around Golden Cap. As well as your own garden and patio, this ancient former farmstead has seven acres of gardens and grounds (shared with the Owner and other guests on site) affording unspoilt countryside views. Truly tiny lanes in the hills around Axminster lead you to this secluded, tranquil setting for an away-from-it-all holiday. The Owner has created a wonderful library of information on activities and outings.

This is a really good base for a very quiet and relaxing break, the pretty garden and the fields that belong to Lea Hill create a great setting where you can forget the car for a while. This part of east Devon is very unspoilt too and you will soon learn your way around the network of country lanes here, above the little market town of Axminster. A few outings to the Jurassic Coast are a must and you are spoilt for choice between Dorset and east Devon, between traditional seaside towns such as Sidmouth and Lyme Regis, and the smaller fishing villages such as Beer and Branscombe. It is an easy drive into south Somerset too where there are plenty of historic houses to visit.
