Knowles description

Holiday home
Knowles is a comfortable, self-contained wing of a barn conversion, located on the owner's working sheep farm and country clothing business. Set entirely across the ground floor with one king-size bedroom, and a family bedroom, each with en-suite facilities, this cottage can sleep six people (26 if booked as a group with the attached property). There's also a compact kitchen and a sitting room with sofa bed and dining area, while outside, there is a small, private lawned area along with a shared one-acre paddock with furniture. Knowles offers couples, friends and families a charming base from which to discover this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with wonderful country and coastal walks within easy reach. Note: Working sheep farm; dogs to be kept under control and children to be supervised when outside of property. Note: The owner runs a country clothing business from an adjacent barn. Note: Guests staying on the sofa bed in the sitting room will share the en-suite facilities.

The delightful seaside town of Lyme Regis has much to offer its visitors, boasting a maze of narrow streets filled with craft and antique shops, galleries and cafes. Take a stroll along the world famous Cobb causeway overlooking the ancient harbour, where fishing trips can be enjoyed, or try your hand at fossil hunting in the area.

Devon, with its quiet country lanes, patchwork of lush green fields and sleepy villages is not to be missed. Stately home lovers will be spoiled and why not finish with a scrumptious Devonshire cream tea?

Had a delightful ambience. The location is superb for those wishing easy access to West Dorset/East Devon. Both Axminster and Lyme Regis are within reasonable walking distance through very beautiful countryside. The owners live on site and were very welcoming, accommodating and available.

Spacious dog friendly property with two en suite bedrooms. Large lounge with dining area and a very small compact kitchen, but quite adequate for a week's holiday, comprising cooker, large fridge/freezer, washing machine, microwave, toaster, etc. Outside is a small enclosed garden which is great for dogs. A good base for visiting Lyme Regis, Sidmouth, Seaton and Forestry Commission, Trinity Hill, a mile up the road which is ideal for dog walking. The donkey sanctuary is a few miles away in Sidmouth which is well worth a visit if you like donkeys. There is a nice dog friendly pub two miles up the road, Hunters Lodge Inn, which serves reasonably priced well cooked food. All in all we had a very pleasant week in November and would recommend.
