The Smithy is a comfortable and attractive holiday cottage, just five minutes drive from Lyme Regis and Charmouth, with fabulous far-reaching rural views. One of three holiday properties at this location, The Smithy is located in the grounds of a non-working farm, on the Dorset/Devon border, very close to the beautiful Jurassic Coast. The cottages are easily accessed at the end of a private driveway leading directly from the main road. The surrounding woods and farmland are home to a wide variety of wildlife including deer, badgers, foxes and buzzards. The pretty West Dorset seaside town of Lyme Regis and the coastal village of Charmouth are both just a couple of miles away and the attractive East Devon market town of Axminster, home to Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall's popular River Cottage, is about a 4 mile drive. This property is ideally suited to those seeking a countryside location close to the sea, or for walkers who will be drawn to this wonderful location by the wealth of walking countryside in this designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Visitors wanting to explore the local area will find themselves well placed to easily access the many attractions of East Devon, West Dorset and South Somerset.

Everything one would need for a week is fully provided for. Did not know a tumble dryer was provided - an added bonus for those wet days - good consideration. A very quiet & serene location away from the madding crowd. I think a location map for all visitors of the cottages would appreciate to know where the nearest Petrol filling stations are located & opening times. There are few & far between in comparison to some home locations. The file containing information on the cottage & places to visit was most useful and again full marks to Mrs Harvey for providing it - very useful in wet weather!
