Welcome to Coaxdon Farm
 

 

Coaxdon Farm was built in the 17th Century as a working farm supplying produce to the neighbouring Coaxdon Hall. The farmhouse included a cider press using apples from the farmís orchards to make local cider. Some of the cider apple trees still remain.

Coaxdon Farm currently lies in seven acres of beautiful East Devon Countryside with the Somerset and Dorset borders close by. The Farm is home to a variety of wildlife; look out for the deer in the wood, the barn and tawny owls and between May and September the farmhouse is home to the greater and lesser horseshoe bats as well as the swallows before they migrate southwards on their annual journey. Throughout the year you will see the plentiful rabbits and the buzzards hunting their prey whilst many other birds including green and lesser spotted woodpeckers as well as pheasants have made their home at Coaxdon.

Meanwhile the farm dogs Millicent, Rufus and Ivor welcome visitors to the Farm. Almost as domesticated are our pet sheep who all love to be spoiled with cream crackers! On the stream running through the Farm we have ducks and geese and very contended free range chickens lay fresh eggs for your breakfast.

Close by there are superb walks along the Jurassic Coast, and Lyme Regis provides fossil hunting, sea, beach and excellent dining, whilst the East Devon coastal towns of Beer, Branscombe, Seaton and Sidmouth are all within easy reach.  The local Devon town of Axminster (famous for both Axminster Carpets and Axminster Tools) is also home to the celebrity chef Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall and the world renowned River Cottage HQ and River Cottage Canteen.

We are definitely dog friendly!
