Hard wood beams and stained glass windows line the high ceilings at Billiard House. The photos really do not do this gorgeous abode any justice.

Important Property Notes

The lawned area to the rear of Billiard house is not enclosed and leads on the remaining Estate grounds. 

Charton Bay, touted as the Roudon Estate private beach, is a considerable 45 minute walk from the cottage. The walk is definitely worth it, but involves a steep descent down to the coast path, and requires traversing a short section of the Axmouth - Lyme Undercliff path. Not recommeded for toddlers, injured, or frail.  

Finally mobile phone signal is notoriously patchy to non existent on the Rousdon Estate. Wi-Fi is available for messaging apps and guests are asked to bear this in mind, prior to booking.  

Billiard House owners live adjacent and have a rather beautiful, but excitable Vizsla puppy who does like to greet guests on occasion. Those guests averse to dogs please bear this in mind.
