Orchid cottage is a spacious 3 bedroom, with occassional 4th bedroom, end of terrace property that can comfortably accommodate 6 people with the possibility of a 7th person by arrangement. It is elegantly presented with good quality furnishings and is cosy and warm in colder months with modern efficient central heating and good insulation through the majority of the cottage. With its deceptively spacious interior and its flexible accommodation Orchid Cottage is suitable for a variety of guest groups including families, and groups of friends or relatives. It will appeal to those that appreciate a clean and tidy property and place this high on their list of requirements. In this regard we request that outside footwear not be worn inside the cottage.

Location description from owner

The England region

Orchid Cottage is located on between Lyme Regis and Seaton on the Devon/Dorset county border. The close proximity to major trunk roads and central location in the West Country means that day trips throughout Devon, Dorset, Somerset and even into Cornwall are possible. The two national parks Dartmoor and Exmoor are within easy reach, as are the Blackdown Hills, providing innumerable places to visit and fantastic walks and scenic views. The Devon South Hams with the seaside towns of Dartmouth, Salcombe, Paignton, Brixham and Torquay can also easily be visited as a day trip. Travel throughout Dorset to Weymouth and beyond is also within easy using Orchid Cottage as a base. The catherdral city of Exeter is just 28 miles away for more serious shopping expeditions, or just to visit the historic sites such as the quayside or the cathedral itself.

Seaton

Located just 1 mile from Seaton, Axmouth is a picturesque Devon village, full of quaint old thatched cottages, lying next to the River Axe which is rich in wildlife and offers opportunities for sailing, fishing and canoeing. Ancient Axmouth harbour is just a mile away from Orchid Cottage and has a marina and access eastward to an isolated beach below Haven Cliff and westward to the seafont at Seaton. There are extensive walking paths in the immediate vicinity of Orchid Cottage including the south west coastal path extending west to Branscombe and on to Sidmouth and east through the Undercliffe national nature reserve to Lyme Regis. Beautiful and atmospheric Lyme Regis, known as a Pearl of Dorset, is only 6 miles away. Slightly further into Dorset there are fantastic yellow cliffs of Burton Bradstock, West Bay and Fresh Water and full of fossil beaches and the unforgettable sub-tropical gardens and Swannery in Abbotsbury. Devon has lots to offer too, beautiful Axmouth harbour, a tramline leading through the Axe and Coly valleys, Burrow Farm gardens, Beer with its caves and Pecorama, Sidmouth with great town gardens, red cliffs, Jacob's ladder and walks towards Ladram bay. Devon and Dorset are known for their food as well - with an abundance of fresh fish, great pubs and restaurants, fabulous Dorset apple cake, Moore's biscuits, bread baked in the traditional way, dressed crabs, fresh fruit and vegetables, and a variety of wild game.
