The property is set in beautiful woodland gardens extending of about two acres with a stream running through the property and ponds. Although we welcome children younger ones will need supervision around the water. The property is only a short walk from Kilmington Woods which has a number of bridleways and paths, and a Roman Road to explore which are perfect for dog walking, as well as a birds eye view of the Axe Valley estuary and the sea from the location of an ancient Armada Beacon in Shute Woods.

The Devon region

The South West attracts many visitors with many returning year after year to explore and to relax in the beautiful countryside the region has to offer. From wild rugged moors of Dartmoor and Exmoor, the World Heritage Site of the Jurassic Coast with its many beaches and the wide open countryside - were else can you do all of this from one location, The ancient city of Exeter is 40 minutes drive away and there are good rail and air connections as well as the M5 motorway into the region. Come and savor the atmosphere of old England and sample the delights of local produce and unspoilt countryside.


The Axe Valley is designated as an Area Of Outstanding Natural Beauty for good reason. There are spectacular coastal walks including the Under cliff between Axmouth & Lyme Regis as well as nature reserves, wildlife havens like the Marshes at Seaton and discovering the heritage of the area in the many attractions including Iron Age Hill forts, woodland walks and houses and stately homes to visit. Kilmington is a very pretty village within The Old Cider Lodge being one of the oldest properties. There are spectacular walks from the property through native and conifer woodlands culminating in a spectacular view from the Armada Beacon at the top of Shute woods which affords views over the Axe Valley and out to sea. Millers Farm shop in the village is well stocked and has interesting range of produce as well as a Post Office and two excellent pubs. Axminster is only two miles away and offers a Tesco and Co op stores, as well as Farmers Markets and Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall's River Cottage Canteen.

"Peaceful and calm place that we were reluctant to leave"

We viewed the cottage online and were not disappointed wen we arrived. The cottage is very private and it is one of the few places i was happy to let the children play outside without worrying about the road.

"Cosy old cottage with a few drawbacks"

The cottage itself is historic and very quaint. Be aware that, due to the age and style of the house, floorboards are creaky and lack soundproofing and it can be very dark inside. There was a strong scent of dog in the living areas; this is understandable as it is a dog-friendly rental but worth noting if you have an aversion to the smell or pet hair. The two single beds are rather short and more suited to children than adults. A friendly and helpful retired couple live in an annexe of the cottage. This wasn't clear when we booked. The grounds are extensive and beautifully tended, a real treat for gardening fans. A stream runs right through the garden and there are a couple of ponds which add to the serenity but unfortunately not if you have little children. We had to supervise our 2.5 year old very closely as there were steep concealed drops into the stream which were potentially dangerous. The presence of a car garage (with pit) and an open staircase were other hazards. The cottage advertises itself as child friendly but we would advise caution with the very young.

The Old Cider Lodge is nearly 800 years old and does have a few creaky floor boards and is not as light as modern properties. There are open ponds and a stream which run through the property which are a hazard to young children - this is made clear in the description of the property. We welcolme children but have not described the property as "child friendly". The cottage is thoroughly cleaned between bookings to a proffessional standard which takes 4 - 6 hours to do.
