About 2.8 miles away is the bustling and picturesque town of Lyme Regis which has provided inspiration for many a novelist, artist or playwright over the years. Lyme is part of the stunning Jurassic Coast which enjoys World Heritage Site status and stretches from Dorset to East Devon. The town has a thriving heart offering convenience and bespoke shopping of a surprising variety for a town of its size, as well as a number of renowned popular restaurants like Hix's Oyster Bar and historic hotels. The town has a good provision of day to day amenities such as banks, a health centre, well regarded primary and secondary schooling, library, cinema and a charming independent theatre. Lyme has a fantastic beach with golden sands, shallow waters and the famous Cobb with moorings for local vessels and charters for the keen fisherman or day tripper. The whole area is designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and has excellent walking and riding out opportunities easily accessible from the property. Honeysuckle cottage is a convenient 3.2 miles away from the mainline station at Axminster with services to London Waterloo, making the area an ideal home or holiday retreat with excellent road and rail access further westwards into Devon and Cornwall. The larger historic cities of Exeter and Bath are accessible by road or rail to cater for further needs.
