Stepps Barn remains one of our most popular destinations and in our opinion offers a superior standard of holiday accommodation. Furnished and equipped throughout in traditional country style, the property features some interesting antiques, a wonderful Inglenook fireplace and a stylish blue Aga in the kitchen if you fancy cooking in real farmhouse fashion. Table tennis and pool are on hand at the property for evening or rainy day entertainment and a golf course is within easy reach. Boat launching facilities are a short drive away and the nearby River Axe is a haven for bird watchers. If all this isn't enough, there are some lovely country walks in the area. Stepps Barn provides quality accommodation particularly suitable for large parties, families or couples seeking lots of space. Despite its name, there are only a few 'steps' here and the stairs in the property are straight! A property difficult to better any time of the year.

The England region

The Dorset and East Devon Coast, known as the Jurassic Coast, features many natural landmarks including Lulworth Cove, Chesil Beach and Durdle door, and extends over 95 miles from Exmouth to Christchurch, offering a selection of the finest sandy beaches to be found in the UK.

It is the only natural UNESCO World Heritage Site in England, ranking the Jurassic Coast alongside the Grand Canyon and Great Barrier Reef as one of the natural wonders of the world.

Exploring the Jurassic Coast
The Jurassic Coast is ideal for exploring on foot, by bicycle or on horseback. All of our cottages in East Devon are situated in what are known as the 'gateway towns and villages' to the Jurassic Coast.

A holiday cottage in Axmouth has something for everyone. Steeped in history this tranquil and picturesque village is surrounded by unspoilt rolling countryside that is home to a variety of wildlife species and provides the opportunity for many varied and peaceful walking holidays in Devon and Dorset.

Dating back to the 7th Century, Axmouth was once a smuggling centre and important port. It is now a delightful country village, featuring fine examples of 18th & 19th Century farmhouses and cottages, and within easy access to the coast at Seaton.

Axmouth village is home to a lovely old church, two local inns and a Post Office/store. The Axe estuary is a haven for birds throughout the year and makes a dog friendly pleasant walk to the pretty Axe Harbour and Axe Cliff Golf Club. The beach at Seaton is just a little further and from the village you can access the South West Coastal path which leads through the Landslip or Undercliff.
