Handsome Victorian house in the middle of this lively market town. Good food, comfortable, colourful rooms & River Cottage on the doorstep

Dianne and Jonathan, and the next generation, have returned from running a B&B in Picardy – they make a friendly, talented team. Their Victorian townhouse has heaps of original features, books, flowers and a pretty garden. Bedrooms (named after shipping forecast areas) are filled with wonderfully creative upscaling of rescued wood, painted pieces and splashes of colour in linen and cushions. Expect delicious choices at breakfast – and two dining rooms, with separate tables, so you can spread out. Sign up to River Cottage courses, explore the Jurassic coast with its towering cliffs, superb walks, sailing and sandy beaches.

Local points of interest from
Dianne Bruce:

  • Green Dragon House offers the best of both worlds - Axminster's charming town centre and station (with direct trains to London in under 3 hours) are just a short stroll away, while the River Axe and beautiful open countryside are right on our doorstep
  • Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall's original River Cottage Canteen is a 5 minute walk up Castle Hill, while their famous rural HQ is just a few miles out of town - a real food lover's haven offering a wonderful range of courses, feasts and other epicurean events
  • Set in beautiful East Devon, just over the Dorset border, Axminster is an ideal base for exploring the best that both counties have to offer - from bustling Exeter (just over 30 minutes away by train) to lovely Lyme Regis and the stunning Jurassic Coast
  • Axminster was recently voted best market town in England, and its Thursday market is certainly well worth a visit! Axminster has a rich history, from the founding of its minster in Saxon times, to the great carpet making heritage that made the town famous
  • Walkers, cyclists, nature lovers and even fossil hunters will find a wealth of things to do nearby, from the East Devon Way footpath to the Buzzard Way cycle track, the Axe estuary for bird watching and the Jurassic Coast for uncovering a T-Rex or two!
