The property

The Annexe at Valley View Farm is a quaint property situated in the coastal village of Uplyme with spectacular views of the surrounding rolling hills.

It is adjoined to the owners' property and shares a large garden with designated garden furniture.

The Annexe has a characterful beamed combined living / dining / bedroom area with feature wood burning stove and separate kitchen and bathroom.

Being on the ground floor The Annexe may be the perfect choice for less able visitors.

A patio area at the front of the property, sheltered by a stunning magnolia tree is the perfect position in which to enjoy an alfresco meal and soak up the peace and tranquillity of the garden. The village of Uplyme has a petrol station /small supermarket selling basic provisions along with local produce.

You may enjoy a walk from Valley View to Lyme Regis, following the old river bed which takes around 30 minutes and, as the return is uphill, you may alternatively take a bus back.

By car Lyme Regis town centre with its charming shops is around 5 minutes away.

Do visit one of the specialist fossils shops and the acclaimed Town Mill bakery with its mouth-watering selection of pastries.

There are a variety of restaurants including the renowned Hix's Oyster and Fish House.

The beach, adjacent to the town has a wide sandy expanse and is bordered by a selection of refreshment stalls.

Valley View Annexe is perfectly positioned to enjoy the views and air of the countryside, being situated by a Public Bridle path and surrounded by several public footpaths, whilst being just a short way from the beach and town at Lyme Regis.

There are stables available near to the Annexe and you are welcome to bring your own horse.

Whilst at Leys it may be possible to take a pottery class designed to explore and develop creativity in all ages and abilities.

Nature Reserve and Woodland This part of Valley View Farm has obviously been home to animals and plants for thousands of years, but over the past few months the owner has been trying to attract a wider range of flora and fauna by adding water, nest boxes, and generally enhancing the natural habitat for the benefit of all living things (including guests).

It opened in July 2018, but is still in the early stages of development.

Jill plans to install cameras, so that barn and annexe guests can view the wildlife from the comfort of the armchair, a la Spring Watch.

This is very much a 'work in progress'.

Jill hopes that guests will feel free to try use the area to enjoy the wildlife and feel free to make camps or such like.

There are lots of fallen branches and plenty of dead vegetation to help with structures - the ideal place to hone your bush craft skills!

Jill also provides checklists/clipboards and encourages guests to see what they can spot.

Help from keen naturalists and birdwatchers in adding to the list would be much appreciated, and give future guests the pleasure of ticking off sightings.

Child must always be accompanied at all time and entry to this area is strictly at your own risk.

The pond is deep in parts and therefore extremely hazardous.

About the location


Lyme Regis 1 mile

The beautiful countryside surrounding the village of Uplyme, on the borders of Devon and Dorset, is a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, criss-crossed by bridleways and footpaths including the East Devon Way, and providing perfect country walks and superb views. The area was chosen by TV chef Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall for his River Cottage HQ at Park Farm, where you can treat yourself to a great meal. Just a short drive takes you to the stunning Jurassic Coast at Lyme Regis. This delightful historic seaside town boasts a maze of narrow streets, with an interesting array of shops and cafes, whilst the sandy beach lends itself to great bathing and watersports, and the bustling little harbour offers regular fishing trips, or try your hand at fossil hunting. Within an easy drive is the quaint town of Axminster, or how about a ride on the Seaton Tramway? A glorious location for a varied and interesting holiday.
