5 Star Holiday Retreat
Southmoor Farm has over 40 acres, the majority remains untouched apart from grass maintenance. The result is acres of 'wild' areas including woodland, meadows, a lake and ponds for you to enjoy - nature at it's best. Apart from being a bird watchers paradise, we can boast a multitude of wildlife, with deer, badgers, fox etc. in fact your very own nature reserve.
The very attractive village of Hawkchurch with its pub and church is within 2 miles and the market town of Axminster, is less than 3 miles away. Lyme Regis and the beautiful Jurassic Coast are approximately 6 miles away.

Beautiful, cosy, clean & peaceful!
We loved the cottage, the peace and quiet, the location, the wildlife, the thoughtful touches. All fabulous.
A fantastic place to stay!
We wanted somewhere peaceful and relaxing to stay, where we could do our own thing and come and go as we pleased. Sandford Cottage was exactly what we were looking for and more. We had a warm and friendly welcome from Pete and Bev, which put us at ease straight away, and when we saw the cottage we were thrilled. It has been lovingly restored to a very high standard and is clean and very comfortable. The attention to detail is perfect, even down to the wine, chocolates and flowers that were waiting for us when we arrived. The woodland and grounds are stunning, along with the ponds and the lake (which you can sit beside with a glass of wine or G&T and feed the fish from food bins). There was also a very friendly (and persistent) pheasant, who was happy to take food from our hands and we were lucky enough to be there for the wren chicks maiden flight too.
The central location is perfect for forays into Devon, Somerset and Dorset and is just a stones throw from the Jurassic Coast.
The pub in Hawkchurch was great, we had Sunday lunch there and it was excellent.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Sandford Cottage and have no hesitation in highly recommending it.
The property and surroundings were everything we could have wished for. The owners were very helpful and we're hoping to go back next year
A peaceful and secluded getaway!
The property was compact with everything necessary for a lovely holiday. It was relaxing, and an excellent place from which to explore the local area. Our hosts were very friendly and available for any queries, but gave us space to enjoy the property as if it were our own for the week. This was definitely one of the nicest properties we've stayed in.
Perfect. Idyllic. Fantastic place to stay. Great hosts. Abundance of wildlife and tranquil setting.
Fantastic cottage with everything you need for a holiday. Peter and Bev have thought of everything, even leaving peanuts and dog biscuits for the badgers that visit every night (generally around 8.30. You can almost set your watch by them!). Roe deer, very friendly pheasant and lots more wildlife on the doorstep. A perfect place for those looking for a quieter place to stay. You can walk around their land and stop off at the lake to feed the fish or just sit and relax. The pub in the village does great food but it is advisable to book. The cottage is perfectly situated to visit Devon, Dorset and Somerset with many National Trust properties within easy reach and plenty of gardens to visit too. We were asked if there was anything that Peter could do to improve our stay. There is nothing. As far as we're concerned, it is perfect. Axminster is a few miles away if you need any groceries. There is a Co-op and a Tesco. If you like antique shopping it is worth a visit to Crewkerne as there are quite a few shops there. If you're the sort of person that enjoys getting away from the hustle and bustle of today's busy way of life then this cottage is for you. Highly recommended.
Charming both for location and facilities
Wifi and mobile phone reception very limited. Everything else excellent.
