Bakers Mill Holiday Cottages are situated on a 200 acre organic farm nestled in an area of outstanding natural beauty in the Axe Valley on the border of West Dorset and Somerset. Our cottages have been sympathetically restored from old disused farm buildings; Threshers Barn dates from the early 1700's, built of flint and is Grade 2 listed, and where possible original features have been maintained. Sleeping 21 in total the cottages are grouped together in a courtyard setting with a rill culminating in a wildlife pond.
A games room completes the setting. There is an abundance of wildlife on the farm with frequent sightings of deer, badgers and foxes along with many different bird species. Well located to visit the Jurassic coast about 20 minutes drive, and numerous market towns, historic houses and gardens around the area. You are never short of something to do should you want to explore. Walking is plentiful, right from the door, with two long distance footpaths and several shorter ones close by.
