The SpaceA former artist's studio, the apartment is a modern airy space within a wild, woodland setting. It has been newly decorated throughout and has a particularly spacious bathroom with a large comfortable bath and views out to the woods to the south and a wild flower bank and natural spring to the west. It is perfectly located for some truly wonderful walks: the East Devon Way adjoins the property and there are several beautiful routes through the countryside to Lyme Regis, including the River Way along the River Lyme into the centre of town. It's about an hour's walk to the Cobb or to the Town Mill cluster of shops, restaurants and galleries or 10 minutes' drive. You can have a great day on the beach or walking and then come home to the seclusion of the woods and meadows. We have some of the best bird and wildlife around. You will hear owls calling in the evenings and maybe spot a badger snuffling about in the garden. We are in the process of restoring the wild meadows and have a mass of wild orchids, bluebells, foxgloves and native daffodils, depending on the time of year. There are views of Lyme Bay and the island of Portland from the top meadow where a bench is provided for your use. The room is designed mainly for 2 people but we do have a z-bed (fold-out bed) to accommodate an extra person. The main bed is a king-size with a slatted base and a soft reflex foam mattress. The bedlinen is 100% Egyptian cotton. We now have a new TV for the room and a music system with a cable to plug in your phone/ipod. Guest AccessGuests have their own entrance to the side of the main house. We now have two studios which both use this entrance but each has its own area of the courtyard garden with table and chairs. There is access to the top meadow to enjoy views of the sea and you are welcome to wander from there through the gate in the deer fence (defunct!) into another meadow where there are masses of snowdrops in early spring and hundreds of wild orchids in early summer. We have plans to add some rustic seating (logs!) but until then, you can take a picnic rug or a coat and enjoy being totally surrounded by nature. There is a sauna with en-suite shower room and chill-out area in a separate part of the house which can be booked for £10 for a 2 hour slot. Just let us know when you would like it and we will turn it on. Interaction with GuestsWe live full-time in the main house and often work from home in the latter part of the week. There is usually someone around if needed or if not, we can be contacted by text or mobile. However, we anticipate that guests will want their privacy and the apartment has been designed with this in mind. At certain times of the day some sound from the family may travel into the apartment but at night it is extremely quiet. We quote normal check in after 4pm but if you are most welcome to email us if you want to come earlier, so we can accommodate you. The NeighborhoodThis is a fantastic setting for a holiday with the gorgeous and wild beaches of East Devon and West Dorset on the doorstep, the outstanding Jurassic Coast with its National Trust walks, fossil hunting, fishing, sailing and kayaking opportunities, and a huge network of footpaths and bridleways immediately accessible from the house. It is also foodie heaven. River Cottage HQ at Park Farm is just the other side of the woods and can be reached by road or on foot. It's about 30/40 mins walk up the lane and through the woods. The more informal River Cottage Canteen is just 2 miles away in Axminster. In Lyme Regis (also 2 miles) is Mark Hix's Oyster House with knock-out views across the bay to Portland and also the Harbour Inn right on the front which does fantastic fish and has a seating area on the beach. There are lots of lovely bakeries and coffee spots, a cinema, theatre and many quirky independent shops. Lyme Regis, Axminster, Bridport and Seaton are all great little towns with their own characters. Getting AroundThis area is very hilly, so only keen cyclists take to the road. There is an hourly bus that travels from Axminster (train connections from London, Exeter (and Bristol via Exeter) through past our road, and on down to Lyme Regis. (runs 6am to 9pm) The bus continues on connecting Lyme Regis with Charmouth (fossils, great beach, and the national trust coast walks) and on to Bridport. To be honest most people use a car to get about. You can walk to Lyme Regis - it's a stunning walk through woodlands, past views of the viaduct and down into Uplyme, were it follows the stream into Lyme past the Mill. It's Chris's favourite walk: all downhill to Lyme, then to his favourite (and award-winning) coffee shop - 'Amid Giants and Idols' on Silver Street, for an extremely good espresso, and catch the bus back afterwards. Other Things to NoteWe are committed to supporting the natural environment of this very special place so use eco-cleaning products, and avoid excessive chemicals. New for 2015: handmade organic soap and hand lotion made in Dorset by Enchanted Plants is provided for your use. We think this is so beautiful that we are considering stocking some for guests to purchase - so we'd love your feedback on this. A clothes drying rack, an iron and ironing board can be provided on request. There is a hairdryer in the bedroom.

The Studio is separate to the main house, connected by a covered walkway, forming part of a picturesque courtyard garden.

Equally, we are happy to leave The Studio unlocked and for you to arrive at your leisure. Interaction with GuestsWe live on site and are on hand to help you with information and recommendations about local sites and amenities. However, The Garden Studio has its own independent access and most of our guests choose to stay here because of the privacy and tranquility we offer. The NeighborhoodThe Garden Studio is situated just a mile from the sea, on the Dorset/Devon border, in the picturesque village of Uplyme, just above Lyme Regis. We are on the East Devon Way and guests have easy access to a plethora of beautiful walks and cycle trails from their front door. It's just a 5 minute stroll across the field to Uplyme's village green, tennis court, friendly village pub and post office.

We are 40 minutes drive from the City of Exeter (Devon) and larger towns of Dorchester (Dorset) and Taunton (Somerset). The Garden Studio boasts a tranquil yet convenient location. Guests can enjoy the hustle and bustle of the pretty seaside town of Lyme Regis, but then retreat to this rural hideaway just a few minutes down the road.

Alternatively, enjoy a potter in our surrounding countryside, home to deer, foxes, pheasants and rabbits as well as an abundance of bird life.

Twitchers will enjoy the bird hides at Seaton Wetlands or the popular bird-watching trips which give exclusive access to parts of the Axe Estuary via the Tramway.

          The SpaceAt Monkton Wyld Court, we have a long history of offering Bed and Breakfast hospitality in our beautiful Neo-Gothic house, with its arched windows and doors, comfortable rooms which are each full of individual character. An assortment of twin/double rooms and family rooms with up to six beds overlook our terraces, meadows, woods and the surrounding Dorset hills. We are happy to accommodate single guests, families and larger groups. Guest AccessTwo communal sitting rooms with WiFi, large sofas, books, games, a grand piano and wood burning stoves, terraces / gardens, grounds and shop. Interaction with GuestsMonkton Wyld Court is run by a small team of friendly volunteers who live in outbuildings around the grounds. There is always someone around to show you everything you need to know, with a mobile number to ring if you are arriving late. The experience we offer is a subtle blend of peace and quietude, with friendly company and busy activity. Guests are welcome to enjoy the peaceful ambiance and there is plenty of space, but those interested in the centre and how it is run can always find people willing to chat over a cup of tea or perhaps even to give a tour. The NeighborhoodWe are situated in the Hamlet of Monkton Wyld within Dorset’s Area of Outstanding National Beauty, and only a couple of miles (10 minutes by car, 1.5 hours on foot) from the Jurassic Coast, a World Heritage Site. The sleepy seaside village of Charmouth is perfect for fossil hunting, while the picturesque harbour town of Lyme Regis has an abundance of little shops, seaside cafes and pubs and the famous Cobb. The Cathedral City of Exeter is only an hour’s drive or a few stops on the train, and is the gateway to beautiful Dartmoor. Getting AroundAxminster, the closest station town from Monkton Wyld, with its popular River Cottage Canteen, is also within walking distance, and the historic and vibrant market town of Bridport is a short drive away. Bristol is around 2 hour’s way and London around a 3 hour drive or 2 hours, 45 minutes on the train.

We are experienced in catering for various special dietary requirements (such as gluten free or vegan), if requested in advance.

          The SpaceThe Story Studio is our new addition to the original airbnb listing, a completely renovated and newly equipped studio room with kitchen and dining area, and en-suite shower room with power shower. It is slightly smaller than the other studio, but in no way cramped. It has a king-size bed with memory foam mattress, armchair/reading area with good lighting, writing or desk area with a vintage G-plan desk which doubles as storage for clothes or personal items. We have installed a nice stereo System - (Project amp, Micromega speakers) it has a mini jack plug so connects to any phone/tablet/laptop The kitchen/dining table looks out on to a sunny courtyard garden. The decor is simple and uncluttered but with a mid-century slant. The writing area is wallpapered with the classic 50s 'Woods' design and the kitchen chairs are Tolix. The bedlinen is high quality Egyptian cotton and we have tried to ensure that everything in the kitchen is also good quality. The kitchen comprises a 2 ring induction hob and a full sized Miele oven. There will shortly be a microwave, although not to start with as the electric points for it were forgotten by us when instructing the electricians! Despite this oversight, though, it should be more than possible to cook whatever you want - and as we frequently host people coming on courses at River Cottage, we wanted to make sure that there would be no frustrated foodies. The fridge is small but has the great benefit of being silent. We hope its bijoux dimensions will not be a problem. We have called this The Story Studio because our friend and writer, William Davidson, wrote a fantastic (and now award-winning) story while he was on a writing retreat here and has given us permission to display it in the studio. Our original listing started life as an artist's studio, so we love to celebrate the house's creative tradition and to offer a space where people can concentrate in peace if that is what they want to do. The studio has been sound-proofed and the fridge and shower pump chosen for their quietness, so hopefully the only things that might disturb you at night are the owls and perhaps the odd snuffling badger. Guest AccessYou have your own front door and use of a courtyard garden. The other studio is accessed through the courtyard too but has its own seating area. Steps lead up to what we call the top meadow where there is a seat from which you can see the sea and, on a clear day, across Lyme Bay to Portland. At night you can see the lighthouse flashing in the distance. There is a further meadow (top top meadow?) which has a carpet of snowdrops in early spring and, later, hundreds of wild orchids. We have plans to arrange some rustic seating (such as a log!) up there too, but at the time of listing, this has yet to happen. You are welcome, log or no log, to wander up there. It should not be too hard to find plenty of privacy. There is ample off road parking in front of the house. There is a sauna with en-suite shower room and chill-out area in a separate part of the house which can be booked for £10 for a 2 hour slot. Just let us know when you would like it and we will turn it on. Interaction with GuestsWe do like to welcome our guests in person and show them around. After that, we are always happy to help with information or if you need something. Often one of us is at home during the day, but there are days - at the beginning of the week usually - when we are both at work. At such times, we are available through texting at intervals. We respect our guests' wish for privacy and do not disturb you unless there is some pressing need. Having said that, it is always nice to say hello should we see you in the driveway. The NeighborhoodThis is a fantastic setting for a holiday with the gorgeous and wild beaches of East Devon and West Dorset on the doorstep, the outstanding Jurassic Coast with its National Trust walks, fossil hunting, fishing, sailing and kayaking opportunities, and a huge network of footpaths and bridleways immediately accessible from the house. It is also foodie heaven. River Cottage HQ at Park Farm is just the other side of the woods and can be reached by road or on foot. It's about 30/40 mins walk up the lane and through the woods. The more informal River Cottage Canteen is just 2 miles away in Axminster. In Lyme Regis (also 2 miles) is Mark Hix's Oyster House with knock-out views across the bay to Portland and also the Harbour Inn right on the front which does fantastic fish and has a seating area on the beach. There are lots of lovely bakeries and coffee spots, a cinema, theatre and many quirky independent shops. Lyme Regis, Axminster, Bridport and Seaton are all great little towns with their own characters. Getting AroundThis area is very hilly, so only keen cyclists take to the road. There is an hourly bus that travels from Axminster (train connections from London, Exeter (and Bristol via Exeter) through past our road, and on down to Lyme Regis. (runs 6am to 9pm) The bus continues on connecting Lyme Regis with Charmouth (fossils, great beach, and the national trust coast walks) and on to Bridport. To be honest most people use a car to get about but we have had a guest who stayed for a month and survived in great style without a car. You can walk to Lyme Regis - it's a stunning walk through woodlands, past views of the viaduct and down into Uplyme, were it follows the stream into Lyme past the Mill. It's Chris's favourite walk: all downhill to Lyme, then to his favourite (and award-winning) coffee shop - 'Amid Giants and Idols' on Silver Street, for an extremely good espresso, and catch the bus back afterwards. If you want to use a taxi, it's a good idea to book one in advance. We recommend Terry's Taxis ((PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN)) or M Cabs ((PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN)) as being reliable and good value. Other Things to NoteThe water pressure in the kitchen is currently a bit low. The plumber is booked for November and we hope it will be resolved. The shower does not suffer from this problem as it has its own pump. The microwave is in the room but not plugged in. It can always be taken out of the cupboard and put on the worktop if required. This, too, is on the to-do list. We are committed to supporting the natural environment of this very special place so use eco-cleaning products, and avoid excessive chemicals. New for 2015: handmade organic soap and hand lotion made in Dorset by Enchanted Plants is provided for your use. We think this is so beautiful that we are considering stocking some for guests to purchase - so we'd love your feedback on this. A clothes drying rack, an iron and ironing board can be provided on request. There is a hairdryer in the bedroom.

The Garden House Studio lies 2 mins by car, 25 mins level scenic river walk from the seafront at Lyme Regis.
