Town: Set on the borders of Devon and Dorset, in a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, is the lovely little village of Uplyme. This beautiful area is a popular filming location and was chosen by the television chef Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall as the headquarters for River Cottage, located at Park Farm. Just a short drive away is the stunning Jurassic Coast at Lyme Regis - a historic seaside town that boasts a maze of narrow streets, packed with interesting shops and cafes. The sandy beach, located alongside the town, lends itself to great bathing and water sports whilst the bustling harbour offers regular fishing trips and fossil hunting. The town of Axminster is also close by, as it the Seaton Tramway, making this a wonderful, varied location.
Additional amenities include: high chair, cooker.Read more

We had a fantastic time at Whitings - the large dining table was great for meals together, although the kitchens (although 2) were quite small. That said cooking for 18 people was managable.
There is a lovely pub approx 3 miles away which makes for a great country walk.
There was plenty of space for everyone inside and out and I would recommend to any young group.

Our week in Uplyme was alate booking. The proprerty was excellent and accommodated three family groups with ease. The games room and the sorounding farmland was bonus.
Great location for the south coast beachs and day trip to Eden Project(get there early and stay the whole day to make the most of it).
Found a few vegetrain cafes/restaurants. Unique bakery and pizza restauraent in Lyme Regis.
The property owners need to provide more info on local attractions - not knowing the area well meant we awsted alot of time working out what to do. Got in a decent forest walk.
Oh by the way, it rained all week!
