About this Property

Couples will love this quality one-bedroom holiday property, located in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, only a five minute drive from the sea at Lyme Regis. In order to take advantage of the lovely countryside views The Lodge has been built on the first floor of an attractive barn conversion. The Lodge has been thoughtfully planned to provide everything you could wish for in a really comfortable holiday property. A spacious bedroom with a king size bed and delightful views is complimented by a comfortable open-plan living/dining room with fitted kitchen. Full central heating is included making this a wonderful year-round retreat. Set in six acres of grounds, including wild meadows and a small lake (coarse fishing allowed), guests are free to wander and enjoy the abundance of wildlife that is encouraged by the welcoming owner. The Lodge offers all of the comfort and quality that you would expect from a property that has been assessed as 4 star by VisitBritain.

One of three holiday properties on this site, The Lodge is located in the grounds of a 17th century former manor house at Monkton Wyld, just north of the A35 on the Dorset/Devon border. The pretty West Dorset seaside town of Lyme Regis is about 3.5 miles to the south and the attractive East Devon market town of Axminster, home to Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall's popular River Cottage shop and restaurant, is about 4.5 miles to the west. Walkers will be drawn to this wonderful location with a wealth of walking countryside, including quiet laneways to Charmouth Woods and the Marshwood Vale right on the doorstep, and access to the beautiful South West Coastal footpath only a few miles away. Those preferring to explore the area by car will find themselves well placed to easily access the many attractions of East Devon, West Dorset and South Somerset.
