Things to do

-Outdoor activities: Walking is a popular outdoor activity in this part of the country. Visitors staying in Hawkchurch holiday accommodation can enjoy easy access to the South West Coast Path from Lyme Regis. An exceptional and challenging walk along the trail from Lyme Regis to Seaton takes visitors through a wide range of coastal terrain and runs right through the heart of the Jurassic Coast. Other walks are also available along the coast for walkers of all ability levels.

-Golf: The stunning Lyme Regis Golf Club is a short drive south of Hawkchurch. Offering 18 holes stretched out over fairways with incredible views of the sea, the club caters to players with a handicap certificate on weekdays and Sunday afternoons. Windwhistle Golf Club in Chard is also very close. Windwhistle offers 18 holes and unrestricted access for visitors.

-Beaches: The heart of the Jurassic Coast is just a few miles from Hawkchurch holiday cottages. The resort town of Lyme Regis enjoys direct access to four separate beaches. Town Beach is best suited for visitors, as it features sand imported from France and lots of cafés. Church Beach also appeals to tourists. The other beaches, Back Beach and Monmouth Beach, are best admired at a distance.

-Family attractions: Family friendly attractions in the area include the Seaton Tramway, which makes for a wonderful day out. For animal lovers, however, the Lyme Regis Marine Aquarium is a must. Kids are welcome to feed the mullet and hold starfish. The Ferne Animal Sanctuary in Chard is another excellent place to take the family, full of splendid walking trails and home to a number of animals.

-Historic attractions: The Ford Abbey House and its gardens comprise one of the best historical attractions in the region. The Grade-I listed building has remained largely unchanged since the 18th century and features amazing architectural details. History buffs will also appreciate the museums at Chard and Lyme Regis. Both offer insight into the history of the respective towns through fascinating exhibits and artefacts.

The house itself was surprisingly quiet given its proximity to the town centre and a pub. The Tiger Inn, barely a minute's walk, is very welcoming and has a good selection of ales. There's an excellent cafe a few steps further on which does a good a hot chocolate as you'll ever try. We walked everywhere. Twice to West Bay, along the clifftop and along the beach as well as climbing a few hills. We left the car in the long stay car park in East St. That's a mile by road but 4 minutes on foot! At only £2.80 per day, it's good, but there weren't many spaces available. The house is well equipped and there are lots of good shops nearby. For winos, try Palmers shop on the road to West Bay. We thoroughly enjoyed our three days. I am sure we will be back soon! Thank you so much, Neil & Penny.

The owners Lorna and Andrew are welcoming and helpful but have the balance just right in leaving you to enjoy your stay in privacy. Plenty of parking right next to the property with walks directly from the door over open fields. On arrival the basket of complimentary locally made items was a lovely touch. The pool was warm which kept the children occupied for hours! A 10 minute walk takes you to the local village pub where the service is friendly and real ales/food delicious. Can't recommend highly enough....and we are fussy devils!

What a perfect spot for a week away from London - the cottage is modern with three large double en-suite bedrooms and underfloor heating throughout the open plan ground floor area. The owners are so nice and had, unexpectedly, set up a Christmas tree before our arrival plus a welcome pack full of goodies. The house was perfect for our 3 young boys with a large open plan area downstairs, a field outside for playing football and a hot tub (one of the main reasons for choosing this property!). Even in winter the area is stunning, but must be even more amazing any other time of the year. The local pub at the end of the driveway is fantastic serving great food - we ate here a few times and can highly recommend it. There's lots of walks in the local area and within a 45 min drive you can get to either the South or North Devon Coast. There's a lot of great cycling in the area - we rode along the Grand Western Canal from Tiverton Parkway to Tiverton with the kids which is an easy ride for all ages and stunning scenery. It's also within reach of the Cheddar Gorge and Wells (a visit to the cathedral is a must see). The town of Beer on the south coast was also worth a visit. A slightly further day trip to Saunton Sands is worth the effort with its huge sand dunes and probably the highlight of our holiday (apart from the hot tub!). There's lots of good local amenities with the town of Wellington only 10 minutes away - even the petrol station has a large Budgens with everything you need, including a Cook frozen meals fridge, which was handy over the Christmas period. I can highly recommend this house and the local area. Thank you Nick and Deborah for making it a perfect Christmas break for us!
