A large sitting room with comfy sofas and chairs has an inglenook fireplace, wood burner, TV, DVD player and free wifi connection.

The fully equipped kitchen includes a fridge freezer, dishwasher and a new top of the range gas cooker. The adjoining dining area has a round table ideal for seating large families and the open fire contributes to a lovely cosy feel especially during the winter months.

The zip and linked beds in all bedrooms are made up with fresh white crisp linen, and the shabby chic painted furniture blends in very comfortably with all the rooms.

There is an excellent laundry room downstairs with a washing machine and tumble dryer together with plenty of space for hanging wet clothes. The entrance lobby is an ideal space for dogs, prams and wellies.

We provide crisp white linen for the beds, white fluffily towels and dressing gowns. Linen is not provided for the cot. The farmhouse is cleaned and managed by our team of workers to a very high standard every week on our changeover day which is Friday.

The Dorset region

Axen Lodge is tucked away on its own at the end of a private lane, off the beaten track with spectacular views across Symondsbury Estate and beyond. The area is surrounded by some incredible scenery, including the famous Colmers Hill, which is definitely worth a walk to the top to experience the spectacular views. Whilst Axen Lodge is in a rural location, it is just a 10 minute drive from the Market Town of Bridport and the village of Symondsbury.


The Market town of Bridport is located 2 miles away with markets on both Wednesday and Saturday, there is also a very popular vintage market on Sundays. Bridport boasts a number of individual shops as well as Waitrose, Morrisons and Lidls. Bridport is famous for being a 'foodies' haven with fantastic restaurants, bistros and tea rooms. There are plenty of artist studios to visit and galleries plus the Electric Palace Cinema which hosts live music and comedy nights.

The beautiful beaches and cliffs along the coast offer plenty of walks and fish restaurants.
