This attractive new development of 2, 3, 4 and 5 bedroom homes is in a great location on the edge of this charming Devon market town and approximately six miles from the south coast.
Built on a hill overlooking the River Axe, historic Axminster is world-famous for its 250 year carpet-making history, while today it's home to the popular River Cottage Canteen and Deli, run by celebrity chef Hugh Fearnley- Whittingstall. The town has a selection of independent local shops and pubs, plus schools, health and leisure facilities, making it an ideal choice if you're looking for a quality new home in a traditional Devon community.
Cloakham Lawns can be found just off the A358 that leads south to Axmouth and the coastal resort of Seaton and to the A35, the major trunk road serving the area. The A35 links the town to the M5 and Exeter to the west and to Dorset and its county town of Dorchester in the east. Axminster railway station runs services to Exeter and on to London's Waterloo. Exeter International Airport is 24 miles away.
A trip to the shops
Axminster has a wide range of local shops and services, plus Tesco and Co-operative supermarkets and hosts weekly markets. Nearby Honiton, 11 miles away, is another popular Devon market town providing further variety with antiques, crafts and food shops. For city-lovers Exeter is just less than 30 miles away with its Princesshay and Guildhall shopping centres both offering excellent ranges of retail outlets. One-off boutiques and specialist shops can be found in the Castle and West Quarters.
Taking time out
There's something for everyone in Axminster and the south Devon area. The town boasts the Axe Valley Leisure Centre, The Flamingo Swimming Pool and The Guildhall which hosts theatre, opera, classes and events, while the Axminster Museum details centuries of local history. The Jurassic Coast - an official World Heritage Site stretching 95 miles - includes Lyme Regis, just eight miles away, where you can enjoy boat trips, fishing, fossil-hunting, a marine aquarium and Dinosaurland Fossil Museum. The stunning beaches and coves of Seaton Bay are about ten miles away with Seaton Tramway running trips through nature reserves along the River Axe estuary.
Axminster has several schools for primary age children; Axminster Community Primary, St Mary's Primary and All Saints Church of England Community Primary. For senior pupils aged 11 to 18, Axe Valley Community College serves the town and wider communities with its own Sixth Form Centre. At Honiton, the independent Manor House School is a preparatory school for children aged from 5 to 11 years.
