The property

Rolling fields and lush green countryside of the Axe Valley stretch out in front of The Shippon, a beautiful barn conversion that is positioned to the front of the owner’s 17th century farmstead, just outside the market town of Axminster in East Devon.

For those seeking a relaxing retreat, the opportunity to explore countryside and coast, lazy days on the beach and delicious pub lunches, this has to be the perfect base.

5 miles from the popular resort of Lyme Regis and the magnificent Jurassic Coast, The Shippon is a super choice for a family or group of friends.

Arranged over one floor although on varying levels, the barn offers 3 gorgeous bedrooms.

The master king-size bedroom sits at the far end of the barn and benefits from an en-suite shower room and stable door leading out to the courtyard.

Up three steps brings you to the light and spacious open plan living space with a kitchen, central sitting area, woodburner and patio doors to enjoy the superb views of the countryside beyond.

Two steps lead up to the dining area and three steps up to two other bedrooms, a twin and super king double that can be presented as a twin room if required.

From the patio doors, step out to a large patio, a perfect spot for alfresco dining on summer days whilst soaking up the peaceful landscape.

A dog is welcome at The Shippon and there are plenty of walking opportunities from the front door, however please keep your pet under control due to livestock at all times.

The market town of Axminster is just 2 miles and has a weekly market, a number of shops and cafes, several pubs including The George Hotel and the famous River Cottage Canteen.

For young ones the Axe Valley Wildlife Park is a worthy visit, as is the Donkey Sanctuary near Sidmouth.

For days on the beach Lyme Regis is just 5 miles, or try your hand at some fossil hunting at nearby Charmouth.

Seaton is popular for paddleboarding and fishing and the picturesque village of Beer can be reached on foot from Seaton along the coastal path.

River Cottage HQ is just outside of Axminster for those attending weddings and events.

The Shippon makes a wonderful choice for a family holiday or break away with friends at any time of year.

About the location


Bridport 10 miles.

The delightful seaside town of Lyme Regis has much to offer its visitors, boasting a maze of narrow streets filled with craft and antique shops, galleries and cafes. Take a stroll along the world famous Cobb causeway overlooking the ancient harbour, where fishing trips can be enjoyed, or try your hand at fossil hunting in the area. The scenic coastal path offers excellent walking opportunities and spectacular views of the stunning Jurassic coast, whilst the gently shelving sands and sparkling waters of Lyme Bay provide the perfect place in which to relax and unwind. A holiday destination to savour!
