The garden for this property is absolutely stunning, with large shrubs adding splashes of colour amongst tall trees and a huge lawn, where you will find a table and chairs, perfect for breakfast outside as your four-legged family member reclines on the grass.
Around the local area, you will find a great variety of wildlife, with stretches of woodland and pasture which you will be able to access through a footpath leading on from a private beach and coastal path, as well as easy access to several beaches including Rousdon Cliffs and Lyme Regis Fossil Beach where you will be able to explore the rocky shoreline to see what fossils hide beneath the rocks. For countryside walks and stunning scenery, visit Cannington Viaduct.

Seaton is a seaside and fishing village sandwiched between Axmouth 20 minutes away, and Beer 5 minutes away in opposite directions. Seaton beach is the longest shingle beach in Devon, stretching over a mile long and overlooking Lyme Bay. The beach is gently sloping so is great for all watersports and swimming. Running the length of the beach is the esplanade leading to the town at 1 end and the cafe at the other end. The town has a variety of sops including the Co-op and several pubs, The Malthouse is dog friendly and even offers dog biscuits for good behaviour! Seaton Tramway can be picked up here and takes you alongside the River Axe estuary and through 2 nature reserves. There are many walks to be taken along the coastline to soak in the wonderful views and countryside, For those who like a challenge, there is a Seaton to Lyme Regis walk through the undercliffs, this is uneven ground and often slippery and is not a short walk but the scenery soon makes up for this. A short walk or drive away is the village of Beer. The beach here is a sheltered bay with a pebble beach and there are several cafes and pubs which are dog friendly. Pecorama in Beer is a great day out for the children with indoor and outdoor areas, crazy golf and a miniature model railway to ride on.
