We were met by Judith upon arrival, who couldn't have been more helpful and had stocked the fridge with essentials (teabags, milk and cake being the most appreciated after a long drive with a toddler). Close to Lyme Regis and an ideal location for exploring the Devon coast. Shops within easy reach too. Will definitely be back

We had a warm welcome from Jude and Mike and were very comfortable in the cottage. We will certainly book again. It is a good location for exploring the coastal towns - Lyme Regis, Seaton and Sidmouth - and surrounding countryside. The alpacas are lovely and we were able to feed them from our hands. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Mill House.

The Mill House, Axminster is certainly a gem. This was possibly the best holiday we have ever had. This very well kept property was set in beautiful countryside, so peaceful and tranquil. We were welcomed on our arrival by the owner who was so friendly, and helpful, and what a beautiful comfortable cottage it was. A tray was set for tea, complete with scrummy home-made muffins, which were gratefully received. Every possible need was provided. Our hosts were really genuine and kind people, and allowed us to meet the Alpacas, which was wonderful! They were so cute. All in all we had a wonderful week and hopefully we will return!
