Inside, the sitting room has an exposed stone fireplace with log burner to curl up in front of while watching the Smart TV, and the kitchen/diner, with its farmhouse décor, is likely to entice the group's chef to whip up a wonderful dinner to enjoy as a family at the dining table. Outside, the large garden with mature planting and impressive barbecue hut makes the perfect alfresco social place at any time of day. Back inside, unwind in one of three well-appointed bedrooms; the double and twin are suitable for couples and youngsters, respectively, while the master bedroom, a king-size with an en-suite and a Smart TV, allows you to enjoy a relaxing morning.

Take your four-legged pals for a stroll along the River Axe or visit the charming market town of Axminster. Stroll through the town learning about its carpet-making history, which is showcased in the town’s heritage centre. The River Cottage HQ, noted for its TV show and locally produced and showcased food, is a popular eatery in the area, and for those searching for good food in a relaxed and friendly setting, The Tytherleigh Arms is hard to beat.

Only a short drive away lies the seaside resort of Lyme Regis, best known for its family friendly beaches, Cobb Harbour, town museum, and the local aquarium. Take a trip to nearby Forde Abbey where a leisurely stroll through its award-winning gardens is recommended, while animal lovers should go to the Abbotsbury Swannery, which is home to the world's only managed colony of nesting mute swans.
