We converted Golden Square Cottage from an old dairy in 2011. The cottage was designed to make the most of the amazing views from our hill top position. The view from the bedrooms and the large private deck are really special. Finished to a high standard, with every detail carefully thought out. We've tried to be as environmentally friendly as possible, installing solar panels to provide hot water, using responsibly sourced wood for the windows and doors made by a local craftsman, and using eco friendly paints and finishings wherever possible. We run a smallholding, so you are welcome to spend some time with us helping to feed the animals and collect the eggs.

We run a smallholding, so you are welcome to spend some time with us helping to feed the animals and collect the eggs. Our small flock of friendly Shetland sheep are in our field and sometimes in the orchard below the cottage to keep the grass down. The chickens and ducks generally free range around the farm and will see them wondering around looking for snacks. We can show you where to go to watch the badgers at the end of our woods, and give you books to read all about the amazing wildlife on our doorstep. Swallows nest in the barn next to the cottage and Wagtails nest in our log stores. We normally raise rare breed pigs but after a water leak their area needs a rest for a year, they will be back in 2019.More

About the neighborhood
1.5 miles from the lovely village of Stockland, with a beautiful ancient church and lovely walks across the beautiful rolling hills. We are 4 miles from Dagwood, a pretty village boasting the Tuckers Arms, serving really outstanding pub food. Axminster is just over 5 miles away, and hosts High Fearnley-Whittingstalls River Cottage Canteen. Just a couple of miles further is the River Cottage HQ. Honiton is 5 miles away and has a great range of pubs and restaurants, and is renowned for its antique shops.Children are spoilt for choice with attractions including Escot, Crealy, Bicton Park and the Sidmouth Donkey Sanctuary within a half hour drive. Were just twenty minutes drive from Lyme Regis and the Jurassic Coast, with sandy beaches, lovely fish chips and ice cream, rock-pools and fossil hu...
Getting around
The cottage is located in a rural farming area and as such there are few buses that service this location, the local towns of Honiton and Axminster have mainline train station. A car is recommended but the cottage is located on the Buzzard cycle route so great for keen cyclists.
