Chubbs Farm is a detached, thatched, former farm set in a very quiet, rural position, two miles from Axminster.
The property, with holiday accommodation for 12 guests, lies at the end of a track and is set within 10 acres with views down to and across the Axe Valley. The refurbishment skilfully combines original features with more contemporary design.
Chubbs Farm is a 10 minute drive from the Regency resort of Lyme Regis. After a day on the beach or fossil hunting on the cliffs, guests can retreat to the property for a barbecue in perfect seclusion.
