Summerlands cottage has been recently extended so we have decided to let most of the old part of the cottage for people to enjoy.

The space
The cottage is set right next to woodland so wildlife is abundant around the cottage gardens which you are welcome to use as long as you do not mind a dog, bees and deer!

The accommodation includes a kitchen/dining room with cooking and washing facilities, a lounge with an inglenook fireplace and flagstones, bathroom/shower room (downstairs) and at present one double bedroom is available. There is a television with freesat in the sitting room and wi-fi around the house although the Internet speed is slow; mobile phone networks can be accessed but you have to pick your spot!

Some parts of the cottage are over 300 years old so it has plenty of character as well as a log burner and central heating. There are also lovely views from the garden which gets plenty of sun being south facing.

The other half of the cottage where we live is separated by internal locked doors on both floors.

There is ample parking and generally we find it a chilled place to live.

Guest access
The cottage is located down a small drivable track (the first part is a little bumpy but fine if driven with care) which is just off Harcombe Road, upon entering the driveway to Summerlands there is parking space on the left for 2 vehicles and a steep uphill path leads to the front porch of the cottage. However you are very welcome to load/ unload luggage from the top path on arrival and departure.

Other things to note
The cottage is served with well water however we will supply bottled drinking water even though there is no problem with it.

The water pressure to the shower is fairly low but can be easily boosted by switching on the water pump when required.

Location

Harcombe Bottom, England, United Kingdom

The cottage is in a lovely rural location and very easily accessable from the A35. It is set in a small valley in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty within easy reach of Lyme Regis with its Jurassic coastline and the market town of Axminster. Both towns have a good range of restaurants and pubs including the Harbour Inn and the Hix Oyster and Fish House, (both in Lyme Regis with lovely views) or there is the River Cottage Canteen in Axminster. There are good takeaway facilities and shops in both towns and the Hunters Lodge pub and a small post office/general store are about a mile away, a 25 min walk from the cottage.
