Set in a beautiful Victorian private country estate of 350 acres of farmland, parkland and woodland on the Dorset/Devon border, the house is situated in a courtyard terrace and was once part of the stable block of the Home Farm near to the main mansion. Enjoy a peaceful and relaxing break - stroll along tree lined walks, take the path down to the estate's private beach or discover the South West Coastal foot path which runs through the grounds. Perfect for 4 -legged friends too! The Rousdon Estate is a 5 minute drive from Lyme Regis (home to the famous Cobb and some lovely beaches) and only 10 minutes from Axminster where the River Cottage Canteen can be found. In fact, it's a perfect spot for exploring all along the Jurassic coast - from looking for fossils at Charmouth and visiting the Swannery at Abbotsbury to the quietly dignified Regency town of Sidmouth and quaint fishing village of Beer.
The house itself offers all home comforts and is equipped to a very high standard. With four bedrooms (1 king, 2 doubles and a bunk room for 2) there is an additional day bed on the mezzanine floor and a double sofa bed in the living room. Two en-suite shower rooms, a family bathroom with bath and a downstairs cloakroom ensure you can be up and out quickly to enjoy your day. Outside there is a 50 foot garden lined with shrubs affording a great deal of privacy and a terrace for al fresco dining and barbecuing.
As a dog owner myself, I know how important it is to find somewhere suitable and welcoming for faithful companions and dogs are welcome at Home Farm North. Doggy duvet beds, water and food bowls, towels, blankets and even toys are provided and the garden has been dog-proofed.
A welcome hamper is provided on arrival filled with some local goodies and basic grocery items.
