What a place for a family holiday, house party or general celebration! Here is luxury, space and natural magnificence! Within the landscaped grounds of a grand Victorian Mansion, Rousdon Estate has it all including a private beach and a nature reserve comprising 350 acres of beautiful coastal scenery. Both houses are sumptuously renovated, you can float through rooms that have been dressed in rich colours, fine fabrics and designer wallpapers, collapse in to deep leather sofas or
perch on exquisitely carved Balinese furniture, wend your way up lushly carpeted stairs wrapped around a leafy wrought-iron lighting pillar with 365 leaves. It's quite magical! There is a formal dining room which can seat up to 20 as well as a huge
eating kitchen. The sitting room is enormous, with full Sky package on the 40” HD TV and excellent sound systems with iPod docking station. Downstairs in the
basement there are games rooms for everyone, a cinema experience and a
treatment suite. Catering available.
Judith Ellard. Lives with partner in part of the Mansion house at Rousdon - renovated some 22,000 sq ft from 2002-5 - split off Peek House as large property to rent out. Rousdon is a lifestyle choice - a country way of living with wonderful walking, cycling, living by the sea with our gorgeous Hungarian Vizslas.
Judith Ellard purchased this house in 2002
We wanted a lifestyle move from London and a project for me after selling my advertising business. Rousdon had been a boys school for some 60 years and was in a sad state of disrepair in 2002 when we bought it. A long and complete renovation programme was managed over three years resulting in Peek House as a 5* rental property. We are 500 ft above sea level with access to a private beach and 350 acres of fabulous countryside to walk in.
Visitors to Peek House are always impressed by its situation, presence and high standard of comfort and cleanliness. It is the perfect place for generations of families or groups of friends to holiday together without living on top of each other! Its generous proportions are always a pleasant surprise. The Estate is really special in itself with much history to discover and stunning building to wonder at.
Our own private beach is a 20 minute walk down through the Undercliff - part sandy and part pebbles. Lyme Regis has both sandy and pebbly beaches. Charmouth 4 miles away is great for fossil hunting - guided walks from Lyme. Beer and Branscombe have pebble beaches and Beer is a working fishing beach where you can buy wet fish everyday.
Exeter airport is 20 miles away by road, we are 1.5 hours drive from Southampton and Plymouth. Axminster train station is 4 miles away with direct link to Waterloo in London. Use of a car whilst staying on Rousdon Estate is essential.
Lyme Regis is 2 miles along the coast, with market town of Bridport 8 miles away. Pretty villages of Beer, Branscombe and Axmouth are close by. The Victorian resort of Sidmouth is 7 miles to the West and some of the most beautiful coastal walks in the country are within reach.
