Kowhai Cottage, pronounced 'coe feye' in the Maori language of New Zealand, is a modern one bedroom property near Lyme Regis which boasts stunning countryside views across the famed Marshwood Vale, an area of outstanding natural beauty.  The fabulous rural setting can be appreciated from all aspects of this holiday home and particularly enjoyed from its bedroom, patio/deck and large garden.  The cleverly designed property has a spiral staircase which leads to a delightful bedroom with en-suite and balcony. And the open-plan living/dining room and fitted kitchen is complemented with french doors leading to seating outside.  Full central heating is included making this a wonderful year-round retreat from which to explore the area.

Please note: due to the spiral staircase this property may not be suitable for some guests and is not suitable for children under 7 years of age, including babes in arms.

Only a five minute drive from the sea at Lyme Regis and positioned near the A35 on the Dorset/Devon border the whole of the Jurassic Coast, now a World Heritage site, is within easy reach.  For those that enjoy a culinary treat, the highly commended HIX restaurant is located in Lyme Regis and the celebrity chef Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall's River Cottage shop and restaurant are also only a short drive away in the East Devon market town of Axminster.  Walkers will be drawn to this wonderful location with its wealth of countryside, and with the Wessex Ridgeway Trail passing adjacent to the property this will also be an excellent base to explore the quiet laneways to Charmouth Woods and the Marshwood Vale, along with access to the beautiful South West Coastal footpath.  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.

October 2018

Went to the Marine Theatre in Lyme Regis twice. Excellent venue with very welcoming staff and a wide range of events and productions. Gave location as "good" rather than "excellent" because of close proximity to the A35. The road noise did not bother us but we were always aware of it. Found the access to the layby from the East a little scary at times! A delightful cottage with everything that we needed.

October 2018

Excellent accommodation for 2 people, well furnished, very comfortable. Wonderful views from Cottage. Very pleasant and helpful hosts. Location very good, easy access to Lyme Regis and Charmouth. Lovely holiday.

Excellent hosts, fantastic views from cottage toward valley. Well located for visiting other places of interest. Outside area well maintained and useful for relaxing. Parking area ok for small car may be an issue for larger vehicles but there is other parking areas. We enjoyed our stay and Ed and Rose are the perfect hosts.

Kowhai Cottage is a real gem. The views over the valley are outstanding. The cottage is very comfortable and cosy with excellent standard of furnishings and fittings. The spiral staircase was not a problem and in fact is a feature. Is was great to have sitting out areas especially on the balcony off the bedroom which was a real suntrap. we throughly enjoyed our stay and the owners couldn't have been more helpful with suggestions of places to explore and visit.

July 2017

We had a lovely week in this unique cottage where the friendly owners were on hand with help and advice whenever it was needed. The cottage was spotless and well equipped, and being located close to the Jurassic Coast there was always plenty to do. The view from the garden is outstanding and we enjoyed our mornings sitting on the balcony. Highly recommended!

Had a wonderful weeks holiday at this cottage and would recommend it to others. The owners were very friendly and gave information about the cottage and area which was a help. The view from the balcony was excellent and you could watch the deer in the fields in front. It is only a few minutes from the coast and other amenities.
