Situated only 2½ miles from Branscombe beach, in a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and on the Jurassic Coast, this beautifully appointed property makes the perfect holiday home for all seasons. It is an ideal base to explore the spectacular scenery of the World Heritage coastline. The picturesque fishing port of Beer is close at hand where motorboat hire or mackerel fishing trips can be arranged, and it also offers good shops and restaurants. Sidmouth, Seaton and Lyme Regis are all within 10 miles. Nestling on the south-facing aspect of a tranquil wooded valley, the panoramic views from the lodge are magnificent, giving year round appeal. Converted from a flint barn and farm outbuildings this detached holiday home provides comfortable and spacious accommodation with classic rural character. A large sauna (eight persons) and fitness room has been installed. Outside the paved terrace provides an excellent vantage point to observe the valley’s wildlife. A relaxing plunge in the hot tub can be enjoyed at any time, especially at night for star gazing. The lodge is a starting point for a variety of country walks. Blackbury Camp, an iron-age fort, can be visited on the way down to the sea. The coastal path will take visitors through spectacular scenery, much of which is managed by the Natural Trust. Alternatively a trip on the old electric tram railway departs from nearby Colyton, along the Axe estuary marshes to Seaton to enjoy the traditional seaside atmosphere. Lyme Regis offers an interesting variety of shops, restaurants and inns around its famous harbour, The Cobb. The regional capital and cathedral city of Exeter is about a 40-minute drive. Shop 2 miles.
