Lilac Cottage is located in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, a short drive from the pretty and unspoilt seaside town of Lyme Regis. The cottage provides comfortable accommodation for families or couples looking for a countryside location near the coast. The pretty garden enjoys sun throughout the day and a Woodburner in the lounge also makes this cottage the perfect choice for cosy out-of-season breaks.  Comfortably accommodating up to five guests in three bedrooms, it also has the added convenience of Musbury village general store, post office and pub close by.

Conveniently situated to make the most of the rural and coastal charms of the East Devon and Dorset area.  The cottage is only 3 miles from the coast at Axmouth and two miles from the attractive market town of Axminster and Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall's famous River Cottage Farm.

The ancient village of Colyton, picturesque Axe River and estuary is also very nearby amidst the unspoilt countryside. This Area is a haven for walkers and the famous South West Coast Path lies close by with spectacular views across Lyme Bay. The local villages are fortunate to have a good choice of public houses, offering a selection of locally sourced produce and local beers. The Axe Estuary Wetlands, a well-managed wildlife reserve is a very short drive away where a large number of birds congregate to feed on the mud flats and salt marshes and these can be viewed at close quarters from one of many hides strategically located along the reserve.

We very much enjoyed our stay, it was a great location for visiting East Devon. We enjoyed using the outdoor furniture and found the cottage cosy, we felt very welcome. We found the beds really comfortable and appreciated all the towels and washing up pack. We would come back to Lilac Cottage in the future.

Yes. We enjoyed our stay very much. We were fortunate with the weather.

July 2018

Lilac cottage has everything you need for your stay its fully equipped, we enjoyed our stay especially with the stone walls kept it very cool in the recent heatwave. We visited lots of places one we especially liked was Burrow Farm gardens in Dalewood, Axminster which was 14 minutes away and 6.6 miles, and after your walk around the gardens you could get light snacks and sandwiches at the cafe. Lovely day out.
