Lovely comfortable tranquil cottage. stunning views & fantastic garden wildlife.

  • 5 of 5

Loved staying in this cottage looking at the stunning rolling hills filled with sheep & lambs, the pretty little streams & waterfall in the primrose filled gardens & waking up to the beautiful pheasants peeking through the windows every day. Cottage had everything we needed comfortable beds good shower some of the kitchen utensils/glasses/table mats/crockery needs adding to/updating but apart from that we had a lovely stay. Two decent pubs in the village with good food, a little play park at the bottom of the hill for young kids & walks in fields surrounding cottage which the dog enjoyed too. Can walk to Seaton along the cliff top & through golf course. The tram from Seaton is good fun. Trips to Lyme Regis & Beer, fossil hunting on Charmouth beach, River Cottage café Axminster, The Mill Bakery for a fantastic breakfast amongst many other things made it a very enjoyable holiday.

Wunderschönes Häuschen in paradiesischer Umgebung

  • 5 of 5

Das Cottage "Atlasta" bietet abgesehen von der unmittelbaren Strandnähe (zu Fuß ca. 25min., mit PKW ca. 5min.) alles, was man sich von einem Aufenthalt in Englands Süden wünscht: gemütliche und komfortable Einrichtung, ein toller Garten, idyllische Lage am Ortsrand, nur wenige Gehminuten vom South West Coast Path und zwei empfehlenswerten Pubs entfernt.

Im Haus muss man lediglich auf einen Geschirrspüler verzichten, was kein Problem darstellen sollte. Ansonsten gibt es an der Ausstattung nichts zu bemängeln. Die Wintergarten-ähnliche Kombination aus Küche und Esszimmer erlaubt schon beim Frühstück einen tollen Ausblick in die grünen Hügel Devons. Immer mal wieder im Garten auftauchende wilde Fasane wirken wie Dekoration und dürften nicht nur für kleine Kinder faszinierend sein. Drei Schlafzimmer und zwei Badezimmer sorgen dafür, dass sich ältere Kinder (wie in unserem Fall) auch mal zum "Chillen" zurückziehen können. Für den Garten gibt es einfache, aber praktische Möbel.

Angesichts der frühsommerlichen Temperaturen benötigten wir keinen Kamin. Dieser dürfte in kälteren Jahreszeiten für zusätzliche Gemütlichkeit sorgen. Kleiner Tipp: Den Heizkörper im oberen Badezimmer sollte man bei Außentemperaturen um 20°C abstellen. Es sei denn, man benötigt Saunatemperaturen im Bad.

Mehrere Abschnitte des Küstenpfades in der näheren Umgebung bieten tolle Ausblicke und bei schönem Wetter am Ende immer auch einen Badestrand (Kiesel!). Den Rückweg kann man zumindest an Werktagen auch bequem mit dem Bus erledigen.

Ebenfalls nicht ganz unerheblich: In 5 Autominuten gelangt man zu einem großen Tesco-Supermarkt in Seaton. Einkaufen ist dort - wie üblich in England - nicht günstig, die Preise sind jedoch akzeptabel.

Alles in allem ist das Cottage "Atlasta" absolut empfehlenswert, Haus und Umgebung sind auf jeden Fall eine Reise wert!
