Guest Reviews


    • “A relaxing week spent in this lovely, exceptionally cosy cottage. Breakfast in the hot sun trap conservatory over looking the country side was an unexpected treat for October. Much to explore locally, pretty villages, great scenery & dramatic coast line.”

    Mr Backhouse, Ascot, October 2015

    • “We enjoyed the peace & quiet. The property was well equipped and had everything you needed.”

    Miss Preston, Chorley, July 2015

    • “An all over excellent cottage.”

    Miss Smith, Arundel, May 2015

    • “Everything was just perfect to be honest. The owners were superb hosts - in the fact they were on site, but not in our face unless we needed anything. We didn't have to ask for anything, because it was all there. It was in the middle on nowhere, just listening to Cows! There were lots of lovely rural walks.”

    Mrs Strotten-Elllis, Horsham, May 2015

    • “It was all great, it was very thoughtful and immaculate. The owners were absolutely lovely people.”

    Mrs Bonella, Colchester, April 2015

    • “A quality cottage with up to date appliances and welcoming helpful hosts. Staying there during a very rough storm, one got a feeling of security and cosiness away from the onslaught outside, with a bonus of being able to 'storm-chase' whilst sheltering in the well appointed conservatory that was part of the accommodation. Would book again because the area is drenched in attractions, far too many to fit in on one visit.”

    Mr Barsley, Spalding, March 2015

    • “It was relaxing and peaceful and the owners were friendly & very helpful. The accommodation could not be faulted, the fixtures and fittings were spot on, the décor was superb and the cleanliness of the property was excellent. This letting is a credit to the owners, I would recommend this property to anyone, thanks again to the owners.”

    Mr Rogers, Birmingham, November 2014

    • “Tranquil, relaxing, like a retreat”

    Mr Lucas, Salisbury, September 2014

    • “Excellent hosts. Helpful but not intrusive. Highly recommend to any. Ideally situated to explore the area inland or seaward.”

    Mr Treble, Dorking, August 2014

    • “We loved the peacefulness and the owners were very friendly. The cottage was in a good position for us to explore the south Dorset and Devon areas.”

    Mrs Slater, Hitchin, August 2014

About the location


Bridport 7 miles; Lyme Regis 10 miles.

A small rural Dorset hamlet situated on the edge of the Marshwood Vale, close to the borders of Somerset and Devon. A designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, this is superb walking country, offering an abundance of footpaths criss-crossing the glorious countryside. Wonderful views can be enjoyed from the top of nearby Pilsdon Pen, one of Dorset's highest points. A delightful drive through pretty country lanes takes you to the thriving market town of Bridport, 7 miles away. Bridport is renowned for the making of fishing nets and ropes, and today boasts a good selection of shops and restaurants. Its market was regularly featured on TV’s ‘The River Cottage’. The dramatic Jurassic Coast, now a World Heritage Site, is just a short drive away at West Bay or Lyme Regis.
