Coaxdon Farm was built in the 17th Century as a working farm supplying produce to the neighbouring Coaxdon Hall. The farmhouse originally included a cider press using apples from the farm's orchards to make local cider. Some of the cider apple trees still remain. The rich history is reflected in the names of our accommodation.
Coaxdon Farm offers bed and breakfast, and a secluded self catering cottage in the Devon countryside overlooking the Axe valley. Look forward to a wonderful stay with us in a beautiful region just
two miles from Axminster - well placed for events at River Cottage or to explore the Jurassic coast towns of Lyme Regis, Seaton, Charmouth, Beer, West Bay and Bridport.
Coaxdon Farm is an active smallholding, where we keep sheep, honey bees, and a flock of chickens headed by Chanticleer the cockerel.
The local wildlife includes nesting wagtails, swallows, pheasant, rabbits, badgers and roe deer. Being close to the Blackdown Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, we have regular sightings of
buzzards, kestrels, green woodpeckers, rarely seen but often heard, tawney owls, and a wide variety of garden birds.
The B&B rooms look out across the farmhouse garden which is ideal for relaxing (or a game of petanque or croquet) after a busy day. We're happy for well-behaved pets to stay
Coaxdon Farm is also home to
Damson Tree Pottery was born at the end of our garden in the shade of damson trees. Inspired by the beauty of the natural world Marieanne loves to incorporate plants and flowers into her ceramic art.
She makes a range of tiles, coasters, bowls, tableware, jewellery and hair accessories using earthenware clay and glazes to produce unique variations in colour and effects.
Pottery classes are available all year around. For locals and visitors of all ages sessions can be tailored to your requirements for a one-off' 'experience' or regular sessions to build up skills. Please phone or email for details.
