Brookhaven is a self-contained, modern studio apartment and is the ideal holiday destination for couples seeking a quiet rural location with village amenities (including a traditional pub) within walking distance. Built over extensive detached outbuildings and located in the grounds of the welcoming owners' home this apartment offers a good deal of peace and privacy and is located on the outskirts of the village of Musbury, about two miles from the attractive market town of Axminster, conveniently situated to make the most of the rural and coastal charms of the Dorset area. 

Recently completed to a high standard the apartment provides everything required for a relaxing holiday in a compact but comfortable space. The open plan living area includes a king size bed, sitting area with leather sofa and a small but well equipped kitchen. There is also a bathroom and separate cloakroom. Outside a private enclosed seating area looks out over green fields across the unspoilt Axe Valley. 

Musbury village has a good general store, post office and traditional pub and Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall's River Cottage farm is close by. This Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is a haven for walkers with many footpaths and quiet laneways criss-crossing the local countryside. The apartment is only about 3 miles from the coast at Axmouth and the pretty West Dorset seaside town of Lyme Regis is just a 10 minute drive away.

Studio apartment accessed via a few external steps from the private allocated parking area. All on one level. Open plan studio living room; fitted kitchen including electric hob and oven, fridge with ice box and microwave; breakfast bar dining space; sitting area with comfortable leather sofa and large flat screen TV/DVD; sleeping area with 5ft double bed. Cloakroom with W.C. Separate bathroom with basin and bath with shower attachment. Space for an additional 'babe in arms'.

Please note: that from 2019 the bathroom will have a large walk-in shower rather than a bath with shower attachment.

Private enclosed sitting area with furniture facing out onto open fields and countryside.

Off-road parking for one car.

August 2016

This is a fantastic place to stay. The owners couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. They left us to it and it was very private but went above and beyond what we expected to make our stay very enjoyable. Everything done to a very high standard in the apartment. Great location. I would recommend this to my friends and family. Outstanding.

Our stay at Brookhaven was really relaxing, our dog had a wonderful time in private enclosed area around the property. The owners were very welcoming and friendly and we look forward to staying there again soon.

Beautiful cottage and surroundings. Had a wonderful welcome, the owners were so lovely and friendly. A great place to relax and explore the surrounding countryside or a short car journey to some very interesting locations. Highly recommend a visit to the Lyme Bay Winery, The Donkey Sanctuary, Lyme Regis and Sidmouth.
