O Espaço

Battleford Hall Cottage is a spacious self-contained one bedroom cottage forming part of a wing of our 16th century listed manor house, just outside the busy market town of Axminster, and five miles from the Jurassic Coast at Lyme Regis/Charmouth.

There is one large bedroom with a king size bed, and a cot can be made available if requested at time of booking. The fully equipped kitchen has a large open-plan dining area, leading to the bright and airy living room with plenty of lounging space. The shower room is adjacent to the bedroom with an additional bathroom (with bath and washing machine) on a lower floor. There are exposed beams throughout, with views across mature gardens, orchard and pasture with specimen trees and coppices. The main aspect is south-facing so the property is bathed in sunlight throughout the day.

We welcome dog owners, but there is an additional one off charge of £15/dog/booking. See "Other things to note".

Believed to have been the site of habitation since Norman times, Battleford Hall is at the end of a secluded valley some distance from the main road. The name "Battleford" comes from a series of Saxon battles in the 10th century, fought between the coast at Axmouth and along the Axe valley to where Battleford Hall now sits. Approached along a 1/2 mile private drive through parkland, the house and cottage are set in 30 acres of mature gardens, parkland and woodland, bordered by a tributary of the river Axe, with bluebells, snowdrops, wild garlic and other wildflowers depending on the season. Deer, pheasant, foxes, owls and buzzards are among the wildlife living on and around the property. The house and grounds are surrounded by mature trees and coppices, including oak of various types, sweet and horse chestnut, beech, mulberries, elms, ash, walnuts, maples, limes, hazel and various poplars and willows, as well as a wide range of conifers, including rare specimens such as dawn redwood, Japanese red cedar and cedar of Lebanon.

We run the property as a sustainable smallholding, growing a wide range of vegetables and fruit (a grapevine grows up the side of the cottage, giving fruit in late summer); and keep sheep, pigs and poultry.

The cottage is part of a larger wing and can accommodate up to an additional four adults by separate prior agreement. We also offer B&B by prior agreement. See also our listing for Battleford Hall B&B, Battleford Hall Cottage (3 bed) and Battleford Hall Cottage (4 bed).

Although these listings are new to Airbnb we have been letting these properties as holiday cottages through agents for several years.

Acesso de hóspedes

Secure private entrance direct from own parking area. Private garden with table and chairs and shady sitting area. 30 acres of parkland and woodland, plus access to other parts of the gardens with owner's permission.

Interação com hóspedes

We will greet guests on arrival and be available in person if any problems arise or if guests have any questions.

Outras coisas a ter em conta

No smoking. No parties.

The property is split level, and the second bathroom is on a separate floor. Consequently, we regret that the property does not offer easy access for wheelchair users.

Up to two well-behaved dogs are welcome on payment of an additional charge of £15/dog/booking. This charge will be added at the time of a confirmed booking. Please advise if you wish to bring a dog at the time of booking. Dogs must not be left unattended in the property and must be kept on a lead in the grounds.

The cottage is situated on a working smallholding and so children must be supervised.

Although the cottage has a fully-equipped kitchen and is therefore offered on a self-catering basis, we may be able to provide breakfast and other meals by agreement.

The perfect country escape. Clive was a welcoming host from the moment we arrived, greeted by his daughter with fresh milk and later by Clive with a bowl of homegrown tomatoes. The cottage was spacious and bright with beautiful furnishings a wide array of amenities and the most comfortable bed of any place we have ever stayed in! Over morning tea in our beautiful little garden Clive popped by and offered great tips on local walks, the best spots for parking, midwalk cafes etc - all very helpful and everywhere he recommended lived up to expectation. It really was the most peaceful relaxing place and the pigs were adorable! We can't wait to visit again. Susan, Maddy and our dog Chip

A very lovely space near Axminster with easy access to all of the key areas of interest in Dorset/East Devon. Clive was a great host and the grounds which we had access to were lovely. Very cold friendly and the cot and high chair they provided worked well for our 10 month old son.
