The deepest pool
On the East Devon and Dorset border is Stretford Cottage at Weycroft, with fishing on the River Axe. Axminster is a mile away and the coast at Lyme Regis six. Built in 1874, this stone-built cottage provides sitting and dining rooms, attic office, kitchen and breakfast room, main bedroom with shower, two further double bedrooms and bathroom. Gardens and grounds cover six acres and include formal and riverside gardens overlooking what is claimed to be the deepest pool on the river. There are also orchards, three-bedroom static caravan with its own driveway and garden, studio, five stables and tackroom, chicken and duck house, and four-acre field bordering the river with nearly ¼ mile of fishing for salmon, sea-trout and wild brown trout.
