'I have often watched 'Escape to the Country' and heard people enthusing about a 'view' and never understood. This morning when i got up and looked out the window now i get it....'
Welcome to Fordwater Bed and Breakfast Devon. Fordwater B&B is a charming thatched guesthouse just ourside Axminster within easy reach of popular South Coast resorts in East Devon and West Dorset. Whether visiting the Jurassic Coast or Lyme Regis, Fordwater is an ideal touring base with ample free off road parking and easy access to Axminster, Chard and beyond. We are also ideally located for those attending courses at River Cottage or Axminster Tools.
We do now operate a 2 night minimum policy or single nights at a supplement depending on availability.
SUMMER CUT FIELDS
Our 16th century Grade II listed farmhouse is ideally located in farmland between Chard and Axminster. Within easy access to the Blackdown Hills to the north and Jurassic coastal resorts of Seaton, Lyme Regis, Charmouth, and Beer to the South. Further West are Sidmouth and Exmouth.
Guests at Fordwater can enjoy navigating undulating floors and walls, stroll in 11 acres of countryside following the old Roman Road route of the Fosse Way as it crosses the River Kit. There is an abundance of wildlife, nesting barn owls, pheasants, wrens, deer, foxes, woodpeckers, kingfishers and brown trout to name a few. Our exposed stone lobby wall reveals ancient graffiti.
Once operational again we will be back manning the phones!
