Nuthatch Cottage is an exceptionally spacious, semi-detached cottage overlooking its own enclosed garden with views across the grounds and down the valley in this unspoilt and tranquil setting. Furnished in a comfortable traditional style, with a very large and comfortable sitting-room and separate dining-room to balance the compact but very well-equipped kitchen, this pretty cottage also offers a spacious bathroom for each bedroom – the master bedroom has wonderful countryside views.
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.
