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.

Truly tiny country lanes in the hills around Axminster lead you to a secluded, tranquil setting for an away-from-it-all holiday. Lea Hill is an ancient former farm with eight acres of gardens and grounds to explore, your own garden and patio, unspoilt countryside views and a hot tub (shared with other guests on site). Membury village is about a mile away and the lovely little shop offers coffees too. The Jurassic Coast is nearby with its chain of attractive east Devon fishing villages such as Beer and Branscombe, and just over the border in Dorset, the famous Cobb Harbour at Lyme Regis and the dramatic cliffs and coastal paths of Golden Cap.
