Lakehayes Farm

Sleeps 6 + 2 cots in 2 properties | 8.4 miles N of Lyme Regis

The two pretty cottages at Lakehayes - Apple Cottage is at this end of the picture and Cider Barn is at the far end.

Lakehayes Farm, an easy drive inland from the World Heritage Jurassic Coast at Lyme Regis, is the setting for these semi-detached stone cottages - created from the original cider barn. There is a lovely picnic paddock as well as your own outside area, where you can see the chickens, sheep and pigs. Enclosed by wooden gates at the entrance this is a place children will enjoy. This is a perfect base for exploring the fishing villages and beaches of the east Devon and west Dorset coastline, where the Owners offer private boat charter. Try both cottages together for extended family holidays, Lakehayes offers the chance to sample an idyllic self-sufficient lifestyle on this pretty smallholding where the Owners also live.

I chose this property because... “it is a tiny little bolthole, very easy to stay in, bright and cheerful, and a great price for a couple.”
