Farmhouse | 4 bedrooms | sleeps 8
"This thatched, four-bedroom farmhouse stands in idyllic countryside at the edge of the Blackdown Hills and enjoys spectacular country views from many rooms. But the best place to take in the panorama is in the lovely gardens."
Quote from Woman & Home Magazine.
"This old farmhouse has been completely restored over six years and beautifully blends modern needs with period charm
Loughwood Farm is a lovingly restored thatched farmhouse in Devon near Axminster. The property now offers immaculate accommodation with plenty of character: the sitting room has an inglenook fireplace and original bread oven while the dining room has handy French doors out to the terrace.
There is a wet room, a completely refitted kitchen and a snug downstairs; the first floor offers four good-sized bedrooms and there are two bath/shower rooms.
Outside are the terrace and a summer house and the garden has newly planted borders.
Loughwood Farm is situated in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty surrounded by National Trust land between Honiton and Axminster in East Devon. Lyme Regis and the beautiful coastline are just eight miles."
Quote from Country Life Magazine - 26th July 2012.
Loughwood Farmhouse is a beautiful family getaway nestling at the bottom of the Blackdown Hills. The views here are truly stunning whether from one of the four cozily comfortable double bedrooms or from the patio or orchard gardens. This National Trust cottage has been beautifully restored and makes the perfect setting for a chilled out family holiday. Situated directly adjacent to Loughwood Meeting House (an historic National Trust Baptist chapel) the cottage is three miles from Axminster and just 8 miles from Lyme Regis and the Jurassic Coast.
Axminster offers a great weekly market and the attraction of Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall's River Cottage Canteen, There is also a Tesco's but I would recommend Miller's Farm Shop just a mile or so from Loughwood on the A35.
The nearby Jurassic Coast offers a great selection of resorts including Lyme Regis, Seaton, Beer and Charmouth amongst others. You will find that each has its own special character and there is something for everyone from fossil hunting and rock-pooling to tram rides and fine dining. You will find extensive information on local attractions in the information pack provided in the cottage.
Of course you may well just want to chill out around the cottage and soak in the peace and quiet and enjoy the views. There is plenty of room outside for the kids to run around to their heart's content in the gardens or the two acre field. There is even a kids play room in an out building so the kids can relax too without the adults getting on their nerves!
There is a great choice of local pubs serving traditional ales and pub grub. A couple of these are within a mile or so walking distance (for some) or you will find many more within 5 or 10 minutes drive.

"Perfect antidote to the working environment and ideal for relaxing and enjoying the company of friends"
The property was extremely well kept and the facilities suited us perfectly. It's certainly big enough for families and I'm sure the playhouse will get plenty of use. Personally I was happy with the aga in the kitchen and log burner in the living room which were a welcome respite from the elements outside.
Would recommend the farm shop nr axminster for your supplies as well as the local pubs that were very welcoming.
