About Kingfisher Cottage

Kingfisher is one of five self catering holiday cottages at Lea Hill. Located in a tranquil valley, the cottages afford stunning views over rolling East Devon countryside and nestle within the Blackdown Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

The cottages are perfect for families, couples and groups of friends and are set in seven acres of secluded, beautiful grounds and gardens. The peaceful setting enables guests to escape from the pressures of everyday life and enjoy a taste of country living.

Lea Hill is only four miles from the market town of Axminster offering a good range of shops, restaurants and Hugh Fearnley-Wittingstall's River Cottage Deli and Canteen. The larger towns of Taunton, Dorchester and Exeter are also within easy reach; as is the world famous Jurassic Coast (twenty minutes car ride away) for some sea air and fossil hunting at Lyme Regis and Charmouth. Durdle Door and Lulworth Cove on Dorset's stunning cost are also within driving distance, as are the attractions of Sidmouth Donkey Sanctuary, Crealy Adventure Park, Dinosaurland Fossil Museum and Beer Quarry Caves - all sure to be a hit with the kids.

For those feeling energetic, the area offers a number of scenic walks and the famous South West Coast Path is just a few miles away from the cottage, offering spectacular scenery as it travels through historic coastal towns such as Charmouth, Lyme Regis and Beer. Cycling, fishing, kayaking and surfing are also popular pursuits whether you prefer to dip your toes in water or keep them firmly on dry land.

Each holiday cottage at Lea Hill retains much original character and has its own garden area which is equipped with garden furniture, allowing guests to relax and enjoy the beautiful countryside. All cottages provide a warm welcome to dogs (up to four accepted by arrangement).
